Product Review: North Fork Apparel Bamboo Pullover Hoodie

SmarterTravel

What is it: North Fork Apparel Bamboo Pullover Hoodie

Price and Where to Buy: $88 on NorthForkApparel.com

Pros: This adaptable bamboo sweatshirt looks sharp, feels soft, and brings a sophisticated edge to the world of pullover hoodies. It’s a great flight companion—it’s comfortable and light but dense enough to offer real insulation against the inflight chill. It’s small enough that it packs away in a day bag easily when not needed (though see note below, it does wrinkle if not folded carefully).

North Fork’s line also includes an ultra-flattering classic short-sleeved T-shirt ($45) in a bamboo terry weave that offers the same nice lines and ultra-comfortable fit, and it works well as an adaptable underlayer to the pullover hoodie.

Cons: It’s not immune to wrinkles, so it needs to be carefully rolled or folded before being placed in a day bag or suitcase.

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 8/10. Stylish, warm, and soft; it delivers on all counts as a travel sweatshirt.
  • Value: 8/10. At $88, this hoodie is the most affordable in North Fork’s line (it also sells a zip-front fleece hoodie, as well as cashmere and wool, cashmere, and silk options). It has all the thoughtful styling and careful crafting of the more expensive hoodies.
  • Durability: 10/10. This well-made garment is up to the job of longtime travel companion.

Final Verdict: Soft enough to feel like pajamas, stylish enough to earn you an upgrade, this hoodie is a jetsetter in its own right.
