After all, we’re talking about hoodies (like the Filson Prospector Hoodie, shown above!) and tailored joggers. But if the pandemic and the changing of the seasons has taught us one thing, it’s that your laidback, off-duty garb could soon become daily wear (especially if you’ve got to brave the elements and could use an extra layer or two). Don’t just take my word for it, though: Invest in some of the best spring menswear essentials with a new hoodie from Filson, one of the hardest-working, hardest-wearing brands on the market.

But it’s just a hooded sweatshirt, right? Guess again, my friends.

In fact, I’ve got some great news for you about the category in general.

There are absolutely companies, like American Giant, making one of the best men’s hoodies with an added level of quality and attention to detail top of mind, and if you ask me, that’s very goods news for your off-duty wardrobe — very good news indeed.

The Filson Prospector Hoodie ups the ante in every regard as far as rugged dependability and durability is concerned: This isn’t any bargain-bin hooded sweatshirt, and it’s got the price tag ($115) to match. If it’s anything like my past experience with Filson menswear however, it’s going to live up to that lofty price tag — and then some. Crucially, the Filson Prospector Hoodie is made with what the brand calls a thick cotton-blend fleece, all the better for insulating warmth when layered beneath a Filson waxed jacket or atop a rugged Filson thermal henley.

The Filson Prospector Hoodie should prove remarkably warm as a mid-layer (try it beneath a Filson vest) or a grab-and-go top layer for casual style situations aplenty. The drawstrings and eyelets feature a metal finish for added reliability, too. Crucially, t’s shrink-resistant, with a wide rib-knit hem and cuffs to deliver a snug fit and extra coverage.

Plus, Filson has designed the fabric to resist pilling, and that’s a good thing – whether you select the deep Redwood version or the workman-like, highly visible Laser Green color for extreme conditions, the Filson Prospector Hoodie is sure to become a new essential, casual spring layer. Invest in your new favorite hoodie now, then reap the rewards all spring long.
