I was surprised by how stretchy the material is, the neck is more open than a normal crew neck and the elastic cuffs are great for making sure sleeves don't slide down over hands. The material is nice and soft and the tye dye pattern is super cool, no weird chemical smells, but I still gave it a wash before wearing it. I made a mistake in my measurements and ordered a size too big. I am a 5'4 155lb Woman, and the V size is surprisingly large. I did my measurements, and normally a Men's M equivalent is just baggy enough to my liking, but this sweatshirt is pretty big. It is now my go too huge sweatshirt for around-the-house and garage lifting, the elastic cuffs are a savior since it is so big on me. Even baggy, it just looks so cool, and I love it.
