The hunt for the perfect sweatshirt ends here. The Classic Full Zip Fleece Hoodie is the essence of comfort with its relaxed fit and soft French terry fabric. The jersey lined hood and woven branded label give it classic style, making it ideal for getting things done – or nothing at all. This year’s pre-order piece prominently features this year’s artwork, the Steller’s Jay, by First Nations artist – Tom Spetter!
