Using the absurd amount of data at its disposable, Amazon has tried its hand at creating in-house versions of many of the most popular products people buy on the site. While they’ve done a good job replicating basic household items like toilet paper and paper towels, a lot of their clothing designs have come up short.
This hoodie is one of the exceptions. I didn’t even know Peak Velocity was a brand of theirs that existed until a few months ago. It turns out they make some pretty decent quality products, namely this hoodie, which qualifies it in our minds as a hidden gem.
There are a million of these kinds of hoodies on the market now since we all are looking for a comfortable everyday top we can throw over a shirt while working out or simply laying around the house. Nike, Adidas, Lululemon and Under Armour all dominate the space and chances are you already own one from one of those retailers. Most of them usually suffer from at least one of the following issues:
- Boxy shape
- Short sleeve length
- Loose arms
- Really expensive
- Not durable over time
This Peak Velocity Hoodie is the first one I’ve found which provides a really nice fitted cut while also having long enough sleeves which allows you to size down without sacrificing arm length. The waffle textured interior is super comfortable, warm yet breathable which makes it an ideal hoodie to wear daily. I got rid of all of my Lululemon Metal Vent Tech hoodies after wearing one of these for a week and bought it in every color. Given the price point, I think this is a no brainer if this is the type of fit you are looking for.
