Let Him Stay Out and Play Wearing Boys' Athletic Hoodies
Boys' athletic hoodies are warm and cozy. They keep children comfortable when the temperature outside drops but it's not quite cold enough for a heavy coat.
Types of boys' athletic hoodies
Fleece hoodies with hand pockets are nice and toasty, and choices with thumb holes in the cuffs stay put as children move around. Pullover choices are old standbys, and zip-up choices offer versatile and comfortable warmth. Most hoodies are made of cotton, polyester, or various cotton and polyester blends, and most are machine washable. The two closure options to consider are pullover and zip-up.
Pullover hoodies frequently have one large pocket in the front and a loose fit that's ideal for layering. It's possible to find choices with comfortable pockets on the sides. They tend to have ribbed cuffs and hems. Some feature water-resistant fabric that also wicks sweat away from your child's body. Dress him in a pullover choice before he leaves the house on days when the temperature is cool enough that he won't need to remove his hoodie.
Zip-up choices have pockets on the side and frequently feature ribbed hems. Some feature moisture-wicking fabrics, and you can find others made in quick-dry materials. Many have hoods that adjust with drawstrings. Zip-up hoodies are ideal top layers on cold mornings. Your child can easily remove it later in the day when the temperature rises and put it back on if he gets a bit chilly in the afternoon.
How to choose a boy's athletic hoodie:
* Choose a color that coordinates well with athletic pants and shorts that your child already owns
* Pick between pullover and zip-up closing options based on your son's personal preference and dressing ability
* Determine if you'd like a boy's athletic hoodie with a logo, an image, or something plain
* Decide if you'd like a special feature such as a lined hood or stretch ribbing
