I would totally buy a technical hoody that does not have a KKK shaped hood and a unicorn print on front.

Well, the cotton thing has been beaten to death, so we all know there's that. Then, for me, it needs to zip up a little higher than normal, and a non pointy hood is also good. Thumb holes are great as well. Last but not least, some kind of easy access media or pass pocket.

Sessions uses some fantastic material for their softshell hoodies. DWR finish with a 10k laminate in an ultra lightweight hoodie is great times, I highly recommend copying that material with extreme prejudice.

Make them long, not large. Use solid colors. Make them with a warm breathable fabric that wicks moisture.

yes, long not large. i hate when i get a hoody that barely makes it past my waist yet is about 3 times the width of my body.

the 2 main things id like in a hoodie are lots of pockets and maybe some secret/concealed ones and a good material thats water repellent and moisture wicking.

i know its a small market but something in a tall size would be amazing and like to 2 above me said, slim and long. personally i would like to see one without a front zipper, just a pull over. however i tend to like things that aren't overly popular lol so maybe just do the opposit.

I hate those long hoodies that are halfway down my thighs. Not everyone is a 18 years old boarder with long hair, 5'11' and 145 lbs. Nothing is worse than a hoodie that hangs lower than your jacket. I'm thinking if you wear your pants around your waist like you are supposed to and not around your knees, you wont need a hoodie that fits like a dress (see thread about gay Snowboarders).... jj

and for god sakes, NO pullover hoodies. Having the option of unzipping a little to let in some fresh air is great. A pullover would eliminate that option.

But that just my opinion.

A 1/4 zip would be a cool compromise and there aren't any being made that would have those other features so you'd have a fairly unique product on your hands.

Pretty much. Sessions softshell hoodies are the shit. Almost perfect. I have two of them. THe only thing I'd change is the elastic material around the cuffs and waist. Snow sticks to that shit like a mother and it's tough to keep ice build up off of it. Other than that, yeah, they're pretty much nailing it.
