Is it a good idea to wear a fleece hoodie while snowboarding?
I'm reasonably new to snowboarding. I'm used to wearing snow jackets while snowboarding, but recently I noticed that 90% of the snowboarders I see are wearing hoodies. So I started looking around on the internet to find out what kind of hoodies I should wear while snowboarding. I read that those hoodies should be made of materials which are waterproof and can keep you warm. Just now I ran into this material called fleece (Never heard of it before, maybe it's because I'm Dutch and I simply don't recognize the word, but anyways....) which appearently is a core material for many hoodies. But is fleece a good material for snowboarding hoodies? I read that fleece is hydrophobe, but I also read a lot of reviews saying fleece clothing gets soggy real easily, so I'm bit confused. Can anyone clear this up? It would help me a lot ^^. And if fleece isn't a good material, what kind of hoodies should I be looking for then?
Thank you for your time!
P.S. I'm sorry for my bad English :3
