I've found that this layer works well if you are moving when temps reach lower 40's or below. On some of the runs I've done in the neighborhood when it was warmer than that and I found it was too hot. Underneath I wear a synthetic t-shirt. Worked great wearing lightweight baselayer underneath (Icebreaker 200 L/S) on a recent climb of Mount Hood. Climbed at night in temperatures around 35 degrees with no wind and felt very comfortable in it as long as I kept moving. Had it been windy, I would have thrown on a shell. The fit is pretty good for me (5'8" and 175 lbs) with my only complaint is that it rides up my hips when active. Maybe BD is telling me I need to drop weight? High quality material and construction is solid. Wish this was designed a little more like the R1 Hoody where it wasn't a full zip and they used more elastic material at the waist to prevent riding up. I plan to use this many more times this season and think it's a versatile option to use with varying layers of clothing.

The fleece does what it says it does, but doesn't look good for very long. After wearing a couple of times, it is already starting to pill. After a few washes, it looks like an old fleece. I would expect better from BD, and for the price, their are better options out there. I have an R1 fleece that has seen a lot of use, but looks brand new. I would not recommend. The fit is long, which is stated by BD, but doesn't suit me.

warm and breathable

By Sebastien

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

great fleece, very thin and light. As other said, it is tight fit, so consider an extra size (I'm usually M, but L fits great)...

Good features, difficult fit for some

By Jordan

from Utah, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

This hoody has great materials, and some really good features. But, if you're big through the shoulders and neck like me, the hood will probably not zip up completely, or very comfortably.

Sizing issue

By Terry

from Undisclosed

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

Beautiful hoody that works great but by BD's sizing chart I would be a Small (like many other brands) but its too tight. Got to find someone to give it too because its simply too tight.

Good fit & warm

By Richard

from Bellevue Wa

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

This hoody has worked well for me skinning in cool temperatures & light precip with no undershirt. I find the fabric wicks sweat well keeping me dry. If I start cooling off, I can put the hood up without stopping.

Nearly perfect high-tech sweats/travel outfit

By Frank

from Mechanicsburg, PA, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

I stocked up on cold weather clothing/gear during the Y13/14 winter that wouldn't end and this was the first piece I bought and I am so glad I did. I basically lived in two sets of these (black & green/hoodie & pants) for 3-months (rotated sets between washings )...love the trim fit and warmth/weight ratio. I was forced to sleep in my car when caught in an ice storm while driving cross country and they kept me warm inside my 18 degree rated bag (close to zero outside)...along with the pants, the ultimate travel outfit for long international flights (recently Switzerland & India). For me (not a climber) I use them as high-tech/extra warm/close fitting sweats. My only (minor) complaints are: 1. starting to pill on the back of the forearms despite being washed inside out/in wash bags 2. zippers constantly get stuck (on both I bought) when trying to fully zip (usually takes 3-4 attempts to zip completely)

Warm, light with a great range!

By Greg

from Wilson, Wy

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

I wore the coefficient hoody on early morning rides and hikes in Moab and on day long ski tours in the the Tetons. It is warm and does surprising well as a wind stopper. I could wear the hoody under my bike helmet for some added warmth!

I have worn it everyday since I bought it!

By giff

from Silver Plume, CO, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

Maybe I was missing a full zip sweater in my quiver? I love the fabric and the fit. Being a male i do search for hand pockets but I think they would actually mess up the fit. The hood is sweet. Probably my only dislike is the size of the logo --- I would like it much smaller ;-)

Love this thing!

By Gary

from Mo,

Comments about Black Diamond Apparel CoEfficient Hoody:

This is a great layering piece. the hood is snug fitting and you can still fasten the helmets chin strap with no problem. Not so with some of the others. Very warm for it's weight,,you can wear it on the approach and not expect to be soaked in sweat since it breaths well in this role. At the base of the climb throw a shell over it and it warms up nicely. Nice!

  • Q:

    How is the fit on this jacket? I read it was an athletic/trim fit. Is it more like a base layer, or like a fleece you'd wear over something else?

      A:

      It's actually sort of in-between. Not as tight as a base layer, but not as loose as most fleeces. I'd plan to wear it over a base layer or tech T, but the silhouette is trim enough that it will layer well under a shell -- even a slimmer-fit shell like the Dawn Patrol LT or Hybrid.
