Bought this as a present for my husband and he loves it. Fits great and its very warm. When I received the sweater it was missing the American Giant emblem but another one was sent out to me right away to replace the defected one. Such great customer service which you don't get from a lot of clothing companies.
Better quality than I expected. Definitely heavyweight! I'm 6'1" and 170 lbs, slight build w/ a bit of a good-times belly. The large fits well. The hood is giant, but I don't mind. Not the biggest fan of metal-tipped hood drawstring cords, they might cause issues at speed on the motorcycle. Also, the 4" long cuffs make it a little tight to pull the sleeves up above the elbow, which is how I usually roll (always on dish-duty). Just got the hoody, though, so maybe they'll break in.
I bought into the magazine article that said these were the best sweatshirts ever made, so I figured I'd give it a shot and I can't really disagree. Definitely the best I've ever had. Heavyweight-it feels like I could take a round to the chest with this thing on. Big hood, soft inside, warm, fits well. 6'1", 225 lbs. athletic build. Large was good for me. Doing this review because the other reviews helped me get the right size.

I'm 17 stone, 5'10" and have a belly. This fits perfectly in the size XXL and the quality is everything that was promised. Fabulous Hoodie and I hope they continue to make more quality items. I could not find any cotton hoodie anywhere! Good Job. From the UK.
Just received my L today and it is as promised, the best sweatshirt I have ever owned. I'm 6'1", 195 lbs, wear a 46 jacket and have a 32 waist. The Large is perfect. Full range of motion in the arms, tapered, slim fit. The hood is large, but I would have been disappointed if it was any smaller. It is large enough to accommodate a hat, but allows for near field vision if you're running and not wearing the hat. Only complaint - it took almost three months to get. I can't imagine that working for you guys long term.
Disappointing. Got the XL and the elastic at the bottom of the sweatshirt did not hold up well expanding after sparse wear. The hood was alson far too large. After a while one of the pieces of metal on the string came off, and the holes that the strings came out of began to rip. This product did not hold up well at all. Exactly the opposite of what I expected from AG.
I was hoping I would get something that would last forever in this product. Something that I could eventually pass on to my kids. I admit I bought into the hype, but I was wrong. Overall very disappointing.
I bought this sweatshirt for my son for his birthday and he LOVED it. Best sweatshirt I have ever bought. I would have given this 5 stars, but when I had to wait 7 months...yes 7 months to get it, it was frustrating.
Want a quality american made product, look no further! Took quiet a while for mine to come in well worth the wait. This hoodie feels like to could survive a knife attack from a smaller breed of bear! I'm 6 foot 260 XL fits like a dream!
The fit is one of the biggest selling points of AG's products. This hoodie fits larger than the rest of their products that I own including heavyweight crew and zip hooded sweatshirts. It may be just this product's style to fit a little larger. I'm fine with some variety, but if you need that ultra trim fit, size down from what other sizes of their's that you wear.
Absolutely love mine, but can't get my head around why people are sizing up. Am 5'10", 14 stone and normally get a medium (UK based admittedly) and if anything the medium is slightly large on me. But great quality, might shrink in wash but it'll have to be wrestled off me first
If you're not fat, ignore the people saying to size up. I'm 5'10 163#, which I would consider very medium, and the medium fits perfectly.
Material feels great and the fit is spot on.
Great Sweatshirt!Supper high quality snug fit very comfortable absolutely perfect please never stop making products in the usa
I bought this for my bf for xmas after reading the article in Slate and he hasn't taken it off since. The quality is obvious and he likes that it has subtle fit and style so he doesn't look like a slob when he wear it to work. (at a casual office obviously) It held up well in the wash too, just as advertised, and is warm and thick.
He is about 5-5 and 160 and the small fits perfectly.
I admit I didn't really understand why this was "the best sweatshirt ever," but now that I have mine, I get it! I am hard to fit as a woman who is busty and short, but this fits great. It's amazingly cozy without being bulky. I also really appreciated that it came with a return form and address label. That's the kind of touch that makes a regular customer out of me. Thanks!
My previous hoody was putting my iphone in peril. It fell out its shallow pockets into a toilet bowl. I had to go to the bathroom without my iphone, causing me terrible hardship and the loss of rice. I chose to forgo the bathroom all together, using forests and other natural areas. BUT THEN, I found American Giant! Its deep pockets allow me to bring my iphone anywhere! I am now more confident in bathrooms and near large bodies of water. I can live again!

This is a must have shirt for guys out there that need a sweatshirt to throw on for the gym,slip on to run to the store or stroll around downtown Chicago Navy Pier. It may sound like a sales pitch but trust me this will be a shirt you look forward to putting on for whatever reason. I'm 5'10" 200 lbs solid. My fiance bought it for me as a gift when she told me what she paid I told her she needs to get her money back. Months later I'm soo glad she had an eye out for it Great sweatshirt (Hoodie no Zip). Now i'm gonna try the pants soon !

I bought one of your hoodies as part of the black friday promotion and all I can say is I am amazed with the quality and fit of sweatshirt. I have seen designer sweatshirts retail for $200 that are not even close the the quality of my AG. I love how it came packaged with an american flag sticker. You guys are awesome and I will let everyone know.
