    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bobbling !! Only wore twice then washed on delicates wash and it is covered in bobbling. I got mine on the sale but that's not the point. It is rubbish quality. Avoid

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality. Bobbles after one wear This hoody is so nice BUT the quality is terrible with bobbles appearing after the first day of wear. Do not be fooled and keep because it looks nice at try on - after not long it will look 10 years old.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The most frustratingly awesome hoody ever I’ve bought many leggings from sweaty Betty but only a couple of hoodies due to price - I have to save! I’m a keen runner and was so excited about this hoodie - it is the most comfortable item of clothing I own - sized perfectly, love the zip kangaroo picked and thumbholes! But...the bobbling!!! A few bobbles around the thumb holes is quite extreme after a month of ownership and a few washes. It’s a £95 hoodie!!! I want to wear this all the time but don’t want to ruin it further...I wanted to order another but not for the quality and the price :(

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Run Hoody I love the colour of this hoody but have to agree with some of the other comments. Having read the reviews I washed inside out on a low wash and low spin, the jumper has shown some light bobbling. It doesn't stop me wearing it and it doesn't make it any softer but it does make it looked aged. #teamsweatybetty

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Favourite hoodie style ..but bobbled straight away When I first bought this hoodie i fell in love! The fit is great for me and with it being so cold here in the UK, the soft snug fleece inside and the the cowl neck make it the perfect top, but after three wears (and not even washed yet) I’ve got bobbles everywhere!! All down the sleeves, hem, underarms. This shouldn’t happen when you spend £95 - Sweaty Betty please sort this!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm & Stylish ! This is such an easy piece to throw on whether at home for a lazy day or for functionality when running! It feels super lightweight yet keeps you really warm and toasty without the bulkiness. I love the style of the neckline and the kangaroo pocket at the front is such a nice touch. I have mine in black, have washed it according to instructions several times, and it still looks like new. My only reason for not giving a full five stars is I have pretty long arms (which most SB tops/outerwear fit great) but I found the sleeves on this just slightly short for me, making the thumb holes not so comfy to use. Still a very nice hoody!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warm but looks old after 3 wears & 1 wash Bought this for training in the brutal cold. It does keep me nice and warm I enjoy do wearing it. However, I started to notice the fabric was piling after the first wear. I was doing burpees and all sorts so it’s hard to find things that do hold up. Usually my tops from here do but this one has not weathered well. I wash it gentle/cold and lay flat to dry, like all my other SB kit. Still keeps me warm so I do keep wearing it just hasn’t held up as well as some of my other SB tops.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I loved this hoody, I love the neck, the zip pockets and draw strings but it washes terribly. I washed it inside out and at 30 and it bobbled after the first wash. It now looks awful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite top for cold weather Super comfy warm and breathable. Have just washed it for the first time . 30 c. Gentle wash . Quick spin put on hanger looks like new.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shrunk in the wash and bobbles Gutted ! Had I written this review before I washed it I would have said it was a fabulous hoody. Love the zip pockets, the shape, the hood and draw strings to make it snug. However....it’s been washed once...on 30 as label states...gentle wash and its not only bobbly its shrunk. I am absolutely gutted. What a waste of money. Really disappointed with the quality SB.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t wash well at all Loved this hoodie when I first tried it on, fits great, doesn’t ride up when you run, lovely colour and fabric. However, within 1 wash the fabric is really bobbly and the bottom is misshapen. Gets worse every wash. And I followed the washing instructions on the label. Really disappointed because generally I adore Sweaty Betty clothes and this is the first time I’ve ever regretted a purchase.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Such a sad day I bought this in blue lagoon and absolutely fell in love. I have worn it almost every day since I got it. However, after one wash, with only technical fabrics...I fell victim to the same problem as everyone else. The entire outside is covered with fuzz and balls. I have used a sweater shaver to make some improvement, but I can’t do that every time I wash my workout gear!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit overpriced , bobbles I initially loved this hoodie it is such a flattering shape and I loved the zip pockets. But the sleeves completely bobbled after the first wash, which was not great considering the price. I only put it on a quick wash since I was wary of previous reviews

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Such poor quality material This hoody went bobbly and looks worn after just three wears - not even washed. Very disappointing - considering price. Would not recommend.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small fitting I bought the grey in large, I’m a 12 and it fits perfectly. Ordered the medium in the cherry colour in the sale and what a difference. Having to return it as it’s much smaller in the arms and body :(

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hoody I bought the hoody in blue lagoon. Colour is beautiful and hoody so cosy. Very disappointed to say bobbles appeared after very few wears. Literally a couple of days wear. This is a premium price top b

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thought it was the best but it wasn’t I bought this and for about 2 weeks I lived in it but after washing it twice it went bobbly and shrunk. I wouldn’t buy this again

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great fit and colour but really poor quality This hoodie is such a great fit and style for running or throwing on after a workout but like the others have said the material quality is really poor. Went bobbly after wearing just a few times and now looks so bad, I can’t wear it out of the house. Not worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite SB hoody! I love this hoody, it looks great and is perfect for running in or just chilling with a pair of Gary’s - have it in both colours.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit Really loved the fit and style. But have to agree with other reviews went bobbly very quickly which is disappointing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great to look at when new but washes badly This was my absolute favourite hoodie for about two weeks until I spotted the bobbling. I haven’t even washed it yet the sleeves, hem and underarms are all bobbly just from wearing it three times. The blue is so gorgeous, the pockets are perfect in that they zip closed and the cowl hood is genius. Such attention to detail and then to produce it in poor quality fabric really let’s down the brand. I’ll be wary what I buy in future and will read the reviews first.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best winter trail hoodie!! I bought this hoodie for running in the winter and it is very warm! I had to take it off during my run today but it will be great for when it gets colder or for evenings. It is an oversized fit in the body (the arms are still snug) but it is flattering. It also has a great kangaroo pocket which zips on both ends so you can safely store things in there!! I also washed this when I got it and it washed fine on a reduced spin!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gorgeous style, poor quality I love this top. It’s a great style and fit and very comfortable to wear. Sadly, it’s bobbled badly after one wash, as some others have also experienced. I wish Sweaty Betty would go back to the quality they used to have. I have a SB top from 7 years ago that is indestructible. It looks newer than this one which is 2 weeks old...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect all-rounder I bought this on a whim for winter running. I’m so glad I did. I love it and I plan to get one in every colour! It’s so soft and comfy and really flattering. when running,it keeps you warm but doesn’t make you hot, which is perfect. The loose neck also doubles as a face covering for those occasions when you realise you need milk but forgot a proper face mask! Based on other reviews I was worried how it would wash but mine seems to be absolutely fine on a 30c wash/ medium spin. So glad I found this hoodie and hope it never gets discontinued.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So soft and lovely colour I can't comment on how this washes but lovely fitting top that will keep my neck warm. Ordered the size L (I'm a 12-14), it's sung but fits nicely. Will be nice to wear when working from home too.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Galvanise run hoodie I have only worn this a couple of times and have washed once on a delicate 30 degrees cycle with my leggings and it has bobbled all around the sleeves. So upsetting as I loved the colour, style and fit.
