As others have mentioned, this is thinner than a normal sweatshirt. Would not want to wear this on a cold day, it's too light. For a spring or early fall day it would be fine. I did not like the fit, it was larger than other Eddie Bauer products of the same size. Also I should have looked more closely at the pictures, but there is white stitching around the arms, shoulders, and along the sides. I just wanted a plain sweatshirt, not what I was looking for.
