Released as part of the Fall 2020 collection, the Georgetown Hooded Jacket is a rugged but cozy softshell hoodie that combines performance, style and comfort features in a manner that makes it perfectly suited to being your favoured all-condition hoodie. With a trim and close-cut design, this hoodie is just as suitable as the outer layer for an autumnal run as it is to being the proverbial meat in your multi-layered winter clothing sandwich or indeed the ideal high-comfort hoodie for lounging around on the couch in these quarantine times.
Soft to the touch but highly durable, the Georgetown Hooded Jacket is made from polyester, spandex and a 75D x 150D stretch double weave that promises top-notch breathability and freedom of movement, while the weight of just over 674 grams gives it the perfect balance between being light enough to carry around and sturdy enough to brave the elements.

With its uncanny blend of backcountry-focused construction and features, outdoor functionality and easy styling, the Georgetown Hooded Jacket thankfully puts an end to that outdated quandary. Warm, cozy and soft whilst also being breathable, stretchy and able to repel wind, water and cold, this softshell hoodie is a veritable steal at only $149, and the perfect wintertime purchase for yourself or a loved one.
