The hoodie still remains one of the most useful garments in any man’s wardrobe and it’s also a great way to fend off the cold. There are all kinds of hoodies available these days, so we’ve tried to include a variety of styles in our list of the warmest hoodies for winter.
We all love hoodies for their comfort, anonymity, and versatility and when the weather turns chilly, a decent hoodie is one of the best garments to keep you warm.
Hoodies used to have a bad rep for being oversized and baggy “throw-ons” but things have changed with the latest hoodies fitting better and having bags more style than ever before.

We love the sporty cut and very clean appearance of the SOSO Slu Hoodie. This one’s extremely popular at the moment for its awesome versatility and comfort.
The SODO is also excellent at wicking away moisture when you work up a sweat and it never retains body-odor thanks to its Zero Odor technology (which means that smell never becomes an embarrassing issue).
Named after Seattle’s SODO district, all of SODO’s products are made with athletes in mind. In fact, their world-class designs are often influenced, requested and tested by athletes.
The hoodie’s made from an ultra-soft fabric which is excellent at keeping you warm while still being breathable.
Guys with toned bodies tend to go for the SODO hoodie as it’s beautifully cut to show off the pecs and biceps. And whether you wear it with your favorite jeans to the mall or playing football on a winter’s day, a SODO hoodie is a great garment to have on standby in your closet!back to menu ↑

In the words of one satisfied customer, “Amazon is putting the hood back in hoodie!”

Pro Club Reversible Hoodie
Another great value for money hoodie, the heavyweight Pro Club Reversible Hooded Jacket is made from durable fleece it has a contrasting reversible thermal lining.
As with all Pro Club’s garments, it’s durable and built with quality in mind. Having a wind-resistant shell is an extra bonus (as most hoodies around this price-point tend to let the wind go right through).
This baby is warm, has a relaxed fit and is very comfortable for day to day use. We love that the hoodie is reversible making it versatile and having two pockets on each side makes it functional, too.
If you need a hoodie to work outside in cold weather, this one is made from waffle knit thermal reverse contrast fabric (which means it’s warm). The fabric is excellent and keeps its shape over time, wash after wash, without stretching or sagging.
For the money, it’s another great value hooded top, and to be honest, if you needed a thicker / warmer material, you’d probably have to invest in a something like a Carhartt at three times the price!back to menu ↑

This cool mid-weight hooded zip-front sweatshirt is a favorite with heaps of blue-collar workers including construction workers, fishermen, etc. and is also seen by many guys as a cool fashion accessory these days.
We love the shape of the Carhartt hoodie, which is snug but still allows for plenty of room for movement. The attached hood with adjustable drawstring and rib-knit cuffs allow you to keep the heat in while the front pocket gives you a warm place to rest your hands.
In our opinion, this is the perfect hooded sweatshirt. No matter what the season, you’ll want to wear it. It’s made from a top quality material which washes well and does not misshape over time.
One thing to note with Carhartt hoodies is that they run a little shorter than other brands so if you’re around the 5’10 mark, you should opt for the tall size.back to menu ↑
