    I love my hoodies, but the AA ones aren't going to keep me so warm when it gets colder
    P.S. I'd love to plop down 2 notes for a spruce/W+H, but, I'm looking for value
    I'd love to wear a nike or something of that nature, but everything's too boxy for me. Help me find that slim cut, heavy hoodie [​IMG]

    If W+H is out of his budget, I doubt $20 down is going to make any difference. I'd take W+H over any of those, anyway.

    ok, gonna recommend something a little different than the usual fair here:

    Arc'teryx Covert Hoodie ($170):

    I have one of these from a few seasons ago and it is warmer than any of the cotton hoodies that I've got.

    Arc'teryx Gothic Hoodie ($225):

    this one is 100% wool.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure this guy is looking in the sub-100 range for non-zip hoodies.

    I wish I could help, but I honestly don't know of any. AA does a thermal-lined zip hood, but not one sans zipper.

    How about sizing down on a Champion hoodie? IMHO that stuff is underrated anyway.

    i have a couple of Blue Marlin hoodies from a few years ago -- way thicker than AA, nike and the like.

    agreed. this is a great choice for sub-$50 hoodies that meet the original poster's criteria. works even better if you actually live in New York, Brooklyn, or what have you.

    How about a Chamption Reverse Weave hoodie? It retails for 40 bucks, but you can probably find it cheaper elsewhere. Just remove the champion emblem and you're all set. Size down if necessary. [​IMG]

    Active Endeavors had some Ever hoodies on sale for $99 not too long ago. May be a bit on the higher end of what you're looking to spend, but man are they comfortable and cozy.

    Can't really remove the chest emblem. In my opinion, at least, Champion is pretty classic, so I wouldn't want to.

    That said, I wasn't really happy with the new reverse weave zip hoods.
