    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Vector Power Stretch Full-Zip Hoodie:

    I work out doors as a builder in Vermont, but sometimes I am inside too. As a second layer over a wicking Tshirt that is light but warm and able to be opened all the way for venting it is versatile and perfect for my needs. It fits snugly, but the stretch allows easy movement with or without added layers. When indoors it is like wearing a warm shirt that can be opened all the way or taken off easily with the full zip if it is too warm. The hood works well on its own in a pinch or for worse conditions over a knit cap. I will buy a second when I see it on sale again and can apply a coupon as well as I did the first time, but can't seem to bring myself to spending the asking price. I don't think it is going to wear out too fast and it dries so easily after washing that I don't need a second one. It is clean and wearable in about a half hour.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Vector Power Stretch Full-Zip Hoodie:

          Was very excited to try out this jacket but it was only available in a Large. Decided to give the L a try since my size is in-between the L and XL (6'2", 195 with long arms and broad shoulders/44 chest). Unfortunately, the L was too tight (like a wetsuit); was hoping for a more casual fit that could be worn over a t-shirt. Product quality appeared to be top-notch and trying it on made me want it even more, but in the correct size . . . If it were available in XL I'd get it today. Had to give it 4 stars based on my brief time with it and no XL being available for a better fit.

              Bought it because my other pieces of this type do not include hood. Everthing right except sleeve length about 4 inches longer than typical for these two sizes (M), & (L). But not a problem because snug enough to stay up out of way. Material is stetchy and fits close enough to effectively pull moisture from base layer and also allow room for other mid/outer layers without cramping movement. Room for additional R1 fleece and wind shell (for example) when stopping to cook, view, etc. Hood is exceptionl and provides full coverage without constraining peripheral vision. Overall, very well done.

                Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Vector Power Stretch Full-Zip Hoodie:

                My wife loves her prior year model, and George at N. Conway EMS School says he practically lives in his. Now I understand! I'm 6'1" mostly in the legs, average torso, long arms, 42" chest. I bought a large and the fit is great, true to size. Note that this is a snug fit, not your oversized sweat-shirt hoodie. This is outdoor technical wear. It's not going over the office dress shirt. I wear this over a lightweight wicking t-shirt to layer for cool to cold outdoor sports. Specifically, my mock zip-turtleneck long sleeve shirt left the back of my neck chilly when ice climbing. A Buff helped, but the hood on this is perfect for my neck and as a helmet-liner. The full-zip makes it easy to change out layers. And the soft-pile lining feels great! Just got it so no feedback on wear and washing but the Mrs's still looks great after lots of wear and washes. I can't compare it to any other brands but I really like this one by EMS. Great job, folks!

                This is a great second or base layer for cold winter days and a great hoodie for spring days. The color, gray, is a little "boring" and the yellow accents do not help it in the style department (for those instances you are off the snow).

                Love Vector Power Stretch apparel because it WORKS! Here's what I mean, I snowboard and in sub-zero weather power stretch keeps me warm when starting the first few runs. As I fire-up the engine I don't get too hot because it breathes so well. It actually regulates my core temp so I'm comfortable all day long, especially on powder days ;-) Also, the stretch moves with you not against you so you forget you have it on. This is the best product EMS has ever made IMO. My only compliant is Ebony isn't Ebony; it's ash grey. I wish they offered it in more colors like brown, burgundy, dark orange, forest green, etc. The color selection is wack (royal blue, glow in the dark yellow/green, ash grey and bright hunter orange). I purchased the blue and ash grey and they're worth every penny.

                  EMS Men's Vector Power Stretch Full-Zip Hoodie
                  i got mine in the color they call ebony but, as someone has said, it's really a dark gray or graphite...I think the color is fine.
                  this hood? wow it really covers my head and works well under a cap or hat even a construction hard hat... nice full design. most hoods are half hoods at best and you need something extra. not this one.
                  I have worn it comfortably in 20F air temps with a under layer wicking shirt in the wind. probably a wind chill of 15F... was comfortable enough to work without a jacket as long as I kept at it. any standing around you'd want an overcoat to cut the wind a bit.
                  my suggestions;
                  1 - make the pocket (chest larger) I barely holds my cell... i'm def a pocket freak. not too many work clothing items have enough pockets.
                  and
                  2 - offer a thicker version... on the really colder days a heavier grade would be highly advantageous. style is close fit for a medium built tall guy like myself. I think the product fits the target of a colder weather hoodie for an active person.
                  if this was heavier, or with some insulation in it, I might order the lime yellow for a HIVIS safety vest replacement. nice product and worth what EMS charges. i'd order a larger size if I used it that way. the fit is close.
                  shipping btw was very prompt.
                  nice company to work with in my experience.
                  3 - add on suggestion; a side deep thin pocket at both sides of the waist just where your hands fall normally. use them to hold a single water bottle would be great. most jackets don't have pockets deep enough to keep a poly bottle in without the darn things slipping out and if the bottle rode at waist/belt height on your sides you could work with it and it wouldn't be in the way in front of you. I haven't seen this implemented on work jackets and don't know why not. most everyone carries water to drink these days. even a small slim thermos of hot java would fit there. some inner reinforcement from the shoulder area to carry the load/weight and spread it a bit would be needed I guess.
                  so that's my read of this hoodie.
                  overall I gave it 5 stars.
