Optimal Training Hoody
Well worth the money
As a new Sweaty Betty customer, I was a little anxious ordering this jacket online but I am delight with my purchase. It is extremely comfortable, good for those cold winter runs, keeps you warm and looks great... I will definitely order from SB again

Kept me warm while running in sub zero temperatures
I love this jacket - it keeps my core warm even on the coldest of runs. The sleeves are too long for me, but this gives me options - I can still use the thumbholes which keeps the sleeves in place, or when it's really cold, I let the sleeves completely cover my hands. The pockets fit my rather large smartphone. And the hood is cosy, it stays up, and it doesn't obscure my view when looking both ways to cross roads. So all in all, a very worthwhile purchase!

Great look and feel
Love this jacket. I put it to the test in a run in the rain (unintentionally) and it performed really well. I was almost completely dry. The hood stayed in place pretty well but when the wind picked up I wished I had a way to cinch it up a bit more.
Like others said the arms are long and the whole jacket goes pretty low on my hips. But it's still really comfortable and looks great for such a functional jacket.

I really wanted to buy this! However, years of racquet sports meant that the "softshell" sleeves (i.e. ones with no give!) were far too tight on my upper arm.

good fast service and a very smart stylish top. Looks good feels good not a run of the mill jacket much more style but still practicle and fit for purpose. worth the money to stand out from the crowd.

Optimal training hoodie - meh
The price and quality of the material don't match. For this price I expect softer/better quality. The sleeves fit too tight on upper arms, while the body is too loose. I ordered a medium based on sizing chart and customer service rep's advice, but returned it for a Small

Great all round hoody
In the past I have purchased large but on this occasion I found it too snug and had to return to get ex large so don't know if this is cut slighty smaller but have a good fit with the ex leg. Its very practical but also very trendy love it.

Really warm and looks good too!
I love this hoodie because it doesn't look like your average workout jacket. The sleeves however are too too long, felt like it was made for Mr Tickle.

Great style, great fabrics in warm hoodie
Everything suits me fine in this hoodie/jacket, aside from one little detail: the zipper is not of the same quality as everything else. It makes a weird, sticking noise when going up or down..

Nice Comfortable Jacket
This jacket is comfortable and relatively warm when walking to and from bootcamp at night. The pockets are decently sized and I like the separate phone compartment. The hood is a decent hood and does actually cover your entire head (like most Sweaty Betty hoodies). Two things that do bother me slightly though, is that the pink fitted cuffs are far too long and I have to push them up to be able to get my thumbs into the thumbholes, this is a recurrent problem I find with Sweaty Betty arm lengths. Secondly, I think the jacket would profit from a slightly higher neckline, just to help keep the chill out!
