A hoodie is a sweatshirt, jumper, or jacket with a hood. This style is usually used for casual wear or sportswear, and people often wear sports pants to match. The garment is a protective jacket that is comfortable and warm and is equipped with a fitted waistband and cuffs to prevent heat loss. Since hoodies are loose and made of cotton, they are also comfortable and unrestricted. In addition, the hood can be used to keep the wearer's head warm or rain-proof in cold weather. Many hoodies also have one or more large pockets on the front that the wearer can use to carry things or as a place to put their hands.
