Under Armour Divide Hoody Review

There is a bit of hoody mania going on over at Under Armour!  They have hoodies in every color imaginable and recently had them on sale for 25% off!

 

One of the newest additions to the UA hoody lineup is the fleece Divide Hoody.  See the Under Armour description of the Divide Hoody below:

We took your favorite performance hoody, added a little subtle color blocking, and lightened it up for the perfect amount of protection. Not too heavy but not paper thin either. And if you need to up the warmth factor, the slick exterior makes laying super easy—no struggling or stuffing necessary. And, of course, the soft, brushed underside circulates your body heat for lasting warmth even on its own.

The fundamentals
  • Super-lightweight Armour® Fleece fabric is smooth outside and brushed on the inside
  • Soft, brushed inner layer traps heat for all-day warmth and comfort
  • Signature Moisture Transport System wicks sweat so it dries faster
  • Lightweight stretch construction improves mobility for full range of motion
  • Two-piece hood with matching drawcords
  • Princess seams create a slimmer, more streamlined silhouette
  • Exaggerated ribbed cuffs and hem
  • Side hand pockets
  • 195g Polyester
  • Imported

I managed to score one of these babies in purple and tried it out yesterday on my 6 mile run at Yankee Woods.  UA hoodie_me

Although I see people wearing hoodies all the time, they are not a normal “go to” cold weather item for me.  I prefer a more fitted layering system and in the past that was not the hoody design.  However, over the last several years, Under Armour has developed a line of hoodies for women that are both technical and fitted.  The hoody no longer represents a sloppy, ill-fitting “sweatshirt” but is now considered a fitted piece of technical clothing!

I quickly found my favorite aspect of running in a hoody …… the amazing pocket!

I was able to fit both knuckle lights and my gloves in that amazing pocket!  I feel like hoody wearers have conspired to keep this valuable bit of info from me!  Is this a secret amongst the hoody wearing community?  The best part is that I could have fit much, much more into that pocket had I wanted/needed to do it.  For a mom who travels with everything, including the kitchen sink and pepper spray, this was a major score in my opinion!

The hoodie kept me super warm and I was actually sweating within the first few miles of the run.  Plus all the stuff in my pocket didn’t bounce or drive me crazy.  Win, Win!!!

I did get this hoodie in a size large, which is bigger than I need, but on the same hand it doesn’t look bad.

Since I don’t own any other hoodies, I just went with the size I would normally wear in most fitness clothing.  As I look back at the order of my beloved UA Base 3.0 1/4 zip (in black on the left and in blue with Joe & Julie on a wintery run on the right), I see that I’m a medium in UA.

Oppps!  Use the size chart so you don’t make the same mistake. 

I like my winter layers to be tight against my core so that heat doesn’t escape.  I didn’t have an issue with air getting in or my heat escaping the Divide Hoody but would probably size down for my next one for a more snug fit.  I love the pink and the yellow; I can’t decide, look at these amazing colors!

    • I’m kissing 6ft. I didn’t ride up at all. Didn’t really move and I thought sure it would with my pocket loaded but it didn’t. In fact, I had a long bra top on under which I always tuck in on the wintery days and I got warm and untucked and still didn’t get any air up under the hoody.

    • I don’t even own a jacket with a hood. I’m normally opposed to “hoods” but it didn’t bother me at all. The drawstrings bugged me as they bounced around but I tucked them inside after about 2 miles of being irritated and that solved that problem. 🙂

  1. I L-O-V-E my UA hoodie and have worn the “Storm” hoodie for the last two winter running seasons. The “Storm” has a water repellant coating and holds up really well to snow and sleet. My only criticism would be that the pocket, although large, would be even better if it had a velcro closure or zip, or even an inner chest pocket. I’m afraid to put car keys or something in the pocket that could fall out while running. But I love the UA hoodie and it has been my best winter running gear.

  2. This being the first year I’ve started running in the colder weather I’ve found a hoody to be my best friend. I usually always wear a tight and warm base layer or two underneath but love pulling the hood up tight to get started on the run and then your spot on – the pocket is awesome. As I warm up the hood comes down and the hat and gloves end up in the pocket for the last half of the run. I’ve never tried UA or a fitted one but imagine it would only get better from your review.

  4. I remember wearing under armor in high school. I always liked the way it fitted but you’re right, the hoodies during winter wouldn’t be snug enough to keep me warm. Seems like they changed that though. And I love the bright colors.

  5. I like the purple zip hoodie, but I also love this fleece hoodie. Liked UA on FB and liked your Instagram page too.
