Default Thoughts on side zipper

What do you all think about a side zipper to get the hoodie on easier? I attached a pic for where it would be (light blue).

I don't think it's necessary. Adds manufacturing expense and kills the hoodie look more without a real benefit.

Hmm... I personally prefer full-zips for the convenience - if I still have to pull it over my head, it's really not much of an improvement in my mind.

I'd rather loose the front pocket and have a full zip with regular front pockets...

This is looking really good. I too like the direction you are taking with the new prototypes (colors, patterns and especially chest pockets) and I'm also a blue fan. Not sure if these have been mentioned, but some possible options:

-thumb holes
-closures for pockets
-pit vents since the breathability isn't crazy high (but these could be full time vents without zippers initially to cut down on the cost). It's a warm weather concept so it should work

Best wishes with the apparel!

Default Full zip design, concept graphic

Music moves, pit zips and thumb holes are being added for sure, thanks for the support!

Here is the new concept graphic for out full zip (FZ). We might make another color way too, any ideas?

Mue,
Youve got a good thing going, and a distinct look on the hoodie.

In my opinion, the anorak style everytime. Mad props for thinking of going that direction, but now stick with it! It give your brand an identifiable product, which can be offered in a less-highlighted full zip option.

Also, a pocket on the arm for passes or cash.

Keep up the good work!

Thumbs up Another suggestion needed

You all are the bomb! You will see changes to the HPH this season in the fit and the features. We will be offering limited single orders like the Industrial Series which you can preview on the site. The business is focusing more on custom group and shop orders. So I need your suggestions again ....

Do you have any suggestions of local shops or ski/snowboard clubs that may be interested in doing their own custom HPH or FZ? It would be awesome to be able to spread around even more this upcoming winter. By the way the sites been updated too.

Thanks again!
