Here's our guide to the most popular item in our shop: the hoodie.

While there are less hoodie variteties than t-shirts, there are still plenty of options to make it difficult to choose. Here's what we often recommend to clients:

The Gildan 18500 Heavyweight is one of the most popular hoodies out there. We use it for many of our school collections, like Sibylla Kiddle. Clients like it because it has an incredible colour range and matching youth style. It is budget-friendly and gets the job done. It's also sports one of the longest body lengths.

Another excellent choice is the Jerzees 996MR. We love this hoodie because of its NuBlend® fleece, which is highly pill-resistant (a common problem with fleecewear). We use it for all of the DSS Pacerwear Hoodies, and many of our regular clients. This comes in a variety of colours and is also very budget-friendly.

Stepping up in a quality and weight is the classic Russell 695HBM Dri Power® Hoodie. This option is our preferred 'budget, yet premium' option for clients that want a step above your basic Gildan hoodie. We use this in the 100 year Ladner Minor Baseball's Fleece Hoodie, and for many of the Gradwear options that schools order.

A popular premium brand with more of a 'streetwear' style is Independent Trading Co.. They have a variety of styles and weights. We particularly like the Independent SS4500 for a premium hoodie option. If you are looking for ultra-premium and heavyweight, nothing outweighs the Independent IND5000P.

For our athletic clients, we often recommend the ATC F2005. This is a 100% polyester option. It feels smooth and athletic, and won't pill after use like many of the other blended fleece options. We use this in our Ladner Minor Baseball Performance Hoodie.

As always - reach out using the quote form below if you want to come check out samples. If you are looking for something else, we can source just about any hoodie available.
