Horny Toad’s Big Chill Hoodie might be the perfect jacket for the holidays—it’s comfy enough for all-day lounging on the couch, but sophisticated enough for town. In fact, during testing, it showed up at potlucks, football games, and every casual Friday from September to March.
Made from Horny Toad’s Voodoo Heather knit—55 percent cotton, 45 percent polyester—this jacket is just thick and heavy enough to be worn as an outer layer on crisp winter days. And when the weather calls for more than a sweatshirt, the Big Chill easily transforms into a midlayer under a winter jacket. Due to the high percentage of cotton, however, we prefered the Big Chill for it’s style about town rather than performance on the slopes.
Two large pockets up front keep hands toasty, and a hidden interior zip chest pocket fits a phone. The wide rib-knit cuffs and hem keep the breeze out and the warmth in—it’s almost like wearing a hug.
Pair the Big Chill with Horny Toad’s Hangover Pant, and you might never leave the couch.
