Fitz Roy Icon Uprisal Hoody

Classic hoody. Patagonia quality and small footprint

Just a normal, nice fleece blend hoody. Worth spending a little more on for patagonias mission and general quality, warranty, etc but not a dramatically different product than youd get with any other basic pullover hoody. The gray-green color is a little more earthy/drab/military than expected. Not a bad color but it looked more minty to me online.... Read More

Warm and well made.

I wanted to purchase one hoodie that I know will last. This one is well made and very comfortable and warm. I ordered the XL because I wanted it to be roomy. In terms of the fit, its really, really long on me but thats okay. I can tell I will have it for a long time.

October 26, 2023

Very thick

Very thick sweater. Kept me really warm as I only wore a t shirt under. It is a bit heavy being that it is thick but will be perfect for winter. Quality is average. Could be a bit softer.

October 24, 2023

Really comfy and warm

Love this hoodie . Its heavy duty but soft and comfortable

October 22, 2023

Classic Every Day Hoodie

This hoodie is perfect for every day use. I use it walking around town and in the office. I would recommend for anyone needing a casual sweatshirt.

Love this hoodie. Perfect for everyday wear. Warm enough, but not too heavy. Definitely recommend

Great sweater!

This sweater is super tough, thick, and warm. Perfect for a fall time hoody in Alaska

October 2, 2023

Very comfortable

Plenty of room, soft and comfortable. It looks and feels rich, the color and detail is great. 10/10 Highly recommend!

September 16, 2023

Excellent Hoody

Comfortable fit, not oversized but plenty of room. Material is thick and. soft. Would be perfect if the hood itself was a 3 panel design vs. the traditional pointy hood.

September 13, 2023

A cozy season staple

The perfect hoodie for campsite lounging and fall walks! Runs a bit larger than other Patagonia products which is exactly what a hoodie should be. Love the neutral color and know this will be a staple in my wardrobe for years to come.

I have not had much of a chance to wear the jacket on a regular basis. to test properly because of the hot weather.

Exactly what I wanted.

This is my second Fitzroy icon uprisal hoody. Like the first one great fitting, very warm and toasty. XL fits me perfectly @ 6’3”. Great material .

Looks Used

Im not sure if the product is suppose to look used or if I received a used item. There is lots of pilling all over the sweater.

Hey Crystal, thank you for your review. We're so sorry to hear that you received a used item.

Very Comfortable

It fits really well and is super comfortable. You can tell its made with quality material.

August 31, 2023

Love it despite odd cut

It looks great, and I love how thick it is. The only strange thing is how it's cut. The armpit of the sweatshirt starts about 5 inches below my actual armpit, so if I raise my arms, the sleeves get super short. Maybe they designed this for someone with really thick shoulders and short arms? Anyway, it's not a deal-breaker, and I love the ... Read Morestyle.

August 30, 2023

Great Sweatshirt

The sweatshirt is super soft on the inside and a nice weight for cooler weather. The fit is definitely mens sizing, with broader shoulders and a more narrow waistband. The light blue is a versatile color. For reference, I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs., athletically built woman and the small fits.

Perfect Color and Material

The Wyoming Green is beautiful and the material is excellent as described; however, the fit did not work for me. The arm length was too short, but the shoulders were too wide.

Really nice!

Love the simple design and aesthetic. Tried the blue and white colors and they are both very pleasing. Have a more athletic build in the back and shoulders, so I find it a bit fitted in the upper body, but it's not too dissimilar from other Patagonia tops.

Best sweatshirt!

Great quality, super comfortable and great fit!

Super comfortable

This hoodie is super comfy and fits really well. You can really feel the quality of the material.

Women, be aware the sizing you select will be for Men's

So I ordered a large because for Patagonia shirts I tend to go between a medium and a large, and for a hoodie, I thought erring on the size of large would be cozy. It was pretty huge and wouldn't fit under my rain coat for a trip I'm going on. I was looking at the tag to then try and find the name of the hoodie, and lo and behold, it has ... Read Moretwo sizes listed: W's XL, M's L. I am a woman and I selected Large on the check out, but was sent an XL for me. There is no where on the check out that says "W's XL M's L", only a general selection. So the default, I guess, is to men's sizes? Ugh. Annoyed that I have to use $5 and go through the hastle to exchange this, and time before my trip is running out. I may have to pay for express shipping, or I may just return it after I get back from my trip and go without it. Otherwise, it seems like a nice hoodie. Warm and comfy.

Not for me

I liked the light blue color. I would have liked the softness, but the unisex/men's sizing was wrong for me. Not enough give around the hips, and sizing up would have made the sleeves too long. This product also smelled strongly of perfumed detergent. I don't know if I got someone else's return but the smell was nauseating. The othe...

Great hoodie. Thick, warm, perfect for layering.

I love this hoodie. Its thick, but also soft and isnt stiff. I will usually put this under my nano puff jacket and it will keep me super warm in the Colorado winter. I even went to buy two more off of Worn Wear. Though, I had some issues with that. I ordered two, and got one (in Wyoming green color) as a small. I was pretty irritated about that bu... Read Moret it seems to fit close to my medium hoodie. I wonder if maybe since it was off worn wear it was an older model which sizes would run bigger than todays models. Either the people at Worn Wear knew about some wacko sizing or they just messed it up. Anyway, Its still kinda a nuisance but its alright. I may return that one soon.

High quality

I was hoping this hoodie was as thick as it is. I was lucky that I got it on sale. Other hoodies this thick are expensive. Others that are this thick are also very stiff. This one is soft as can be. I love it as much as the other Patagonia cloths that I have.

April 19, 2023

Super warm

This is one of my favorite hoodies, but it is definitely on the warmer side would recommend in 50° weather or colder unless you really want a snuggle lol

Basic Fleece, very good.

I like the fit and color of this hoodie very much. I purchased a S, but normally wear M in womens' tops.

This is the first pullover / hoodie I ever bought from Patagonia. I love the fit, comfort, and the overall comfort also. Very light weight, but very warm for those lower temperature days. Highly recommend for sure.

Awesome Hoody

This hoodie is super awesome, great quality! I purchased a medium because the large was too baggy and big. The medium fits perfectly, except for now the back of the sweater at the bottom is shorter in the back than in the front. It would be nice if the back was longer than the front.

Perfect for Staying Cozy

This is a really great sweater -- it's a nice heavier weight with soft fleece interior (exterior feels like a normal sweatshirt, doesn't have the same softness) and has an extra big hood!

Response from Patagonia
January 24, 2023

Hi Nadya! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear the hoody started pilling after one wear. To prevent pilling, we recommend washing that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer where the fabric can easily get abraded. To remove pilling that has already occurred, a sweater shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool and can help the garment look brand new again. That said, being that this started so quickly we'd consider this a warranty issue. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

Hey Jamie, thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that you felt like this hoody was not worth the cost. There are many things that go into the final cost of our gear; dignified working conditions and developing recycled materials all play a part. This particular hoody is made from 100% recycled knit fleece with a brushed interior. We have fleece at varying thicknesses, and weights; it sounds like this just wasn't the right one for you. No worries though, we have plenty of alternatives to pick from.
