A good pullover hoodie is a staple in any wardrobe. It can serve a comfortable addition to your workout gear on a chilly run, a cozy top layer for your recovery days at home, and the perfect cold weather top to throw on with a pair of joggers when you're running errands. While you likely already own a hoodie—if not more than one—there's a good chance that what's in your closet isn't fulfilling all of your needs if you've ended up here.

Luckily, the pullover hoodies we've chosen are a far cry from the gear you wore to track meets in high school. These were designed to be fashionable, sustainable, versatile, and incredibly comfortable. Look below for some of our favorite picks for both men's and women's styles, and some buying advice to help find the pullover hoodie that's just right for you.

      How to Choose a Hoodie

      Picking the right pullover hoodie is not as simple as choosing the style that most appeals to you—although that is undeniably important. Instead, you will first want to think about the function of your hoodie—when and where do you plan to wear it? It's useful to consider the environments you'll be wearing your pullover hoodie in and the activities you envision doing in it, so instead of buying five mediocre hoodies for different occasions, you can purchase just one that suits multiple needs.

      If you plan on mainly lounging around and running errands in your hoodie, you should be fine with one made of a heavier fleece material, but if you're a runner or plan on hitting the gym in it, you will want to opt for a lighter, stretchier material. This will also allow you to use it as a base layer, or a light top layer in warmer months.

      The style of hoodie you choose is also important. If you are planning to wear it out often, you may want a silhouette that is more slim and fitted, which will still give you the comfort you seek, but looks more put together than a typical hoodie. Women's hoodies generally tend to have more diversity in terms of style, but for men, sticking with a slightly closer fit can make all the difference.

      How We Chose Our Products

      To find the best options among the many pullover hoodies on the market, we looked at expert-tested reviews from trusted sources like Esquire and O magazine. We then took into account price, materials, design, sizes, and comfort. Finally, we consulted more than 56,000 reviews, written by enliven who’ve bought these models to settle on these eight.

      This hoodie comes in three unique neutrals—meaning other than grey, black, and navy—and has a relaxed, but modern look that's great for everyday wear. It has a boxy cut, which allows for layering underneath, but it isn't too thick, which means it fits easily under coats or jackets in colder weather. 

      It's also made from 100% cotton, which makes it extra soft. However, that also means it's important to carefully follow the washing instructions or it could shrink.
