My ex stole it.

No, not my heart…

My favorite hoodie.

Desperate, I offered her a trade:

Her dying succulent for my beloved pullover.

She responded with a 4 letter word, and it was not “love”.

So I’m on the hunt for a replacement.

And Kickstarter’s supremely soft Evolution Hoodie is just what the doctor ordered.


Review: Kickstarter’s Evolution Hoodie


1. Evolution Hoodie is made from recycled coffee grounds

Here’s a little known fact:

I worked as a barista in college.

Oh, you don’t give a sh*t about that?

Well here’s a little known fact that you’ll actually care about:

Evolution Hoodie is made with sustainably sourced coffee grounds and 10 recycled plastic bottles.

That’s right, there’s no cotton up in here.

So you can feel good knowing this amazingly comfortable hoodie doesn’t treat the environment like my ex treated me.



2. It features quick-dry fabric that works 2x as fast

Because of my puzzling aversion to umbrellas, my clothes tend to get wet when it rains.

Which is why the moisture-wicking technology found in the Evolution Hoodie is so incredibly clutch.

This super soft fabric adds crucial versatility making this the perfect pullover for hikes and outdoor adventures no matter what the weather forecast has in store.



3. Evolution Hoodie stuffs into its own pocket and makes a surprisingly good pillow

Stuffing at Thanksgiving?


Stuffing ordinary hoodies into a backpack?

Not so much.

But the Evolution Hoodie makes packing a breeze.

It stuffs into itself, letting you take this compact hoodie absolutely anywhere.


P.S. You can even use it as a pillow!



4. It features an extra large front zippered pouch to keep stuff secure

Here’s a terrifying look at how my brain works…

Coalatree is the name of the company behind the Evolution Hoodie.

So I thought to myself, “Oh, that makes sense why they added a large front pocket because Koala’s keep their babies in pouches.”

Then I thought to myself, “Grant, you idiot, you’re thinking of kangaroos.”

And then I looked it up and Koala’s have those pouches too!

So what’s the lesson here?

Uhhh, trust your gut.

I guess?



5. Evolution Hoodie is wonderfully lightweight

Would I wear this hoodie skiing?


But it wasn’t built for that.

It’s the perfect option for chilly spring mornings, and crisp fall afternoons.


6. It features stain-resistant fabric in case you too always get sh*t on your clothes

I can’t tell you how many shirts I’ve ruined by getting BBQ sauce on them.

If somebody came out with a line of BBQ-proof clothing, that’s literally all I would wear.

And while it’s obviously best to avoid spills entirely, stains are going to happen.

Good thing the Evolution Hoodie is naturally stain-resistant.

So go ahead, eat those ribs my friend.

And if some of that sauce goes astray, you’ll be a-ok.



7. Evolution Hoodie is undoubtably cool, but how much does it cost?


Evolution Hoodie Kickstarter Review


Isn’t there more to life than money?

Oh… not really, you say?

Well have no fear because Evolution Hoodie costs less than you think.

With limited early birds available for just $62, this is a highly affordable, high quality hoodie that you’ll enjoy for years.


P.S. Give me back my old hoodie or the succulent gets it, Sarah.
