The Gildan 185 isn't just the best-selling hoodie here at BlueCotton; it is one of our top five selling garments, period. Gildan has combined the comfort of cotton with the durability of polyester to create a hoodie that you will want to wear for years to come! The addition of polyester also greatly reduces the chance of shrinking. The G185 is a lighter weight (7.75 oz.) sweatshirt that is ideal for spring or fall. Best of all, you will be getting great quality at a price that won't bust your budget.

Please note: Due to the variations in style of hoodies we offer, designs placed on the back of your garment may be covered by the hood.

Love it!

I will be ordering a lot more from this company. I love the e-mails I get from a REAL person! Very quick too. I thought it would be a month and from the time I ordered to receiving it it was 2 weeks.

So comfortable

The material is very soft. I would just comment that the pocket is a little small.

Great quality

The sweatshirt is great, it holds up well, I was hoping that the sweatshirt would be thicker, but my daughter always wears layers, so it might be just perfect for her

Hoodie Review

One of the most comfortable sweatshirts. I've ordered this type of hoodie before, and I can't get enough of it. It's one of those great lounging hoodies :)

I liked the thickness of the sweatshirt, but found that the inside fleece sheds on everything I wear under it, unlike other sweatshirts that I own. If I'm wearing black jeans or leggings, there are white fleece pieces all over them.

A happy customer!

I wear my Blue Cotton pullover in McCovey Cove, CA where the wind is strong and the air cold and I can always depend on it to protect my and keep me ready to catch the next San Francisco GIant HR. In September, I grabbed Carlos Beltran's 300th career HR while wearing this pullover and since I had my name (DAVE) printed on the front, the broadcasters acknowledged I had caught the ball and Carlos invited me after the game to the Giants clubhouse to celebrate his milestone HR. To see me wearing my Blue Cotton Gildan Blend Pullovers visit me at "McCovey Cove Dave" on Youtube!

Gildan Sweatshirts for all sizes

I ordered 23 sweatshirts ranging from sizes Youth to XXL. They arrived on time and were of excellent quality. I thought that Blue Cotton being an online retailer would send a poor quality product, but I was wrong. I opened the package and they looked like I walked into a name brand store and purchased them. I recommend Blue Cotton.

Just fine

The product is fine. I can't tell if it shrunk in the wash or not as I did not try it on before.

Gildan hoodie

The sweatshirt was what I expected for the price I paid. The higher quality sweatshirts cost more and this type fit in my budget better. Overall its not bad just slightly on the thin side. I would probably buy this type again.

Pullover hood

I have not washed this item yet, but it seems to run just a little large for the size indicated. The material was much thinner than expected. Color and cut was as expected

Basic Pullover for work

If you shopping for inexpensive pullover hood this is exactly the one. It is very nice looking, quality is average, overall I like it. The only thing for Ohio weather its thin hood, for end of the fall would want something warmer than that.

Soccer success

This is the third time we have ordered from Blue Cotton for our soccer teams. The Gildan 7.75oz pull over hood is perfect for the money. The Blue Cotton website is easy to use and we were able to use our own clip art each time and manipulate it just like we wanted.

Great quality and fit.

I really loved this sweater. I was counting on wearing it for a specific occasion and it did not disappoint. I recommended that my friend order one too and she loved it as well. The lettering was bold and bright and was of highest quality. It fit well and is so soft and comfortable.

Thing I like best about the 50/50 is that it doesn't get the shrinkage that a 100% cotton product get and holds its size through time.

I am familiar with Gildan products, so I knew what I was ordering. However, you did a PHENOMENAL job with the design and lettering-I absolutely love it! It was exactly what I wanted, and it looked exactly how it was displayed on my computer screen (when I was creating it online). My only quam is the hood strings-they are ridiculously long, but that's not your fault :-) Thank you so much-I created this sweatshirt in memory of my horse who recently passed away and it's kick-ass, just like him!!!

Wounderful Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt is the perfect thickness for different weather and the size was what was expected. It turned out exactly how I wanted it to. Thank You Blue Cotton.

True to size and color; lightweight.

This sweatshirt is exactly the color pictured online, something that is not always guaranteed. I am pleased with the fit and think it is accurate, and my only (slight) concern is regarding the thinness of the garment; it is definitely thin and not warm. I like it, but I think it should be clarified in the online description that it is lightweight, and not (to me) a normal weight.

Pretty nice sweatshirt

Placement of printing was a little off. The name on the back was higher than I wanted and the date on the front was also higher than I wanted. Otherwise, printing came out very nice.

Good Sweatshirt at Reasonable Price

This is a good looking, comfortable sweatshirt. I haven't washed them yet, but as they are a blend, don't forsee any problems with shrinking.

Gildan sweatshirt

I think the sleeves are too short and loose around the wrists. Every time I would move my sleeve would come up.
