Champion Reverse Weave Hoodie Review

The Champion reverse weave hoodie is a sportswear classic. This sweatshirt is exactly what I think of when I hear the word “hoodie”. It’s a medium weight hooded sweatshirt with a boxy fit that you can wear in almost any situation that requires a sweatshirt. Indoors or outdoors. It is well-built with the durability to last over five years of wear. If you’re looking to purchase a soft fleece hooded sweatshirt to wear while walking your dog, going to the gym, or watching TV at home, the Champion reverse weave hoodie is an excellent choice.


You might think of Champion as a cheap department store sports brand but that has certainly changed over the past five years. Currently, there’s a lot of streetwear hype around their higher-end hoodies because of the style and quality.

It’s important to note that Champion has several different lines and weights for their garments. You should not make a purchasing decision based on the $15 Champion sweatshirt that you bought at a department store when you were growing up. Champion has come a long way and that inexpensive sweatshirt you owned was likely one of their cheaper products.

The Reverse Weave hoodie is the high quality sweatshirt that is responsible for Champion’s recent popularity spike. The sweatshirt style is not new by any means, but the quality and style of the hoodie was rediscovered and is now considered “cool”. The Reverse Weave line has more durable products that are built to last and resist vertical shrinkage.


This is everything you can ask for in a comfortable hoodie. It is the perfect comfort option for both indoor and outdoor use. It has a soft fleece lining that keeps you warm and cozy but also has a more rigid build to protect you from the elements while wearing it outside. The loose-fitting design and ribbed stretch side panels give you superior mobility.

Do Champion reverse weave hoodies fit true to size?

It does fit true to size for a boxy-style hoodie, but the waist does seem a little high compared to other sweatshirts. I recommend sizing up one size if you prefer a longer sweatshirt that reaches below your waist. Champion hoodies will shrink, but the reverse weave fabric is constructed to shrink horizontally, not vertically. You can read more about how reverse weave sweatshirts shrink here.

How does it fit?

Champion hoodies are designed to have a boxy and relaxed fit. When the sweatshirt is brand new, it is a little shorter in length and larger in width. However, after a few washes the reverse weave knitting technique causes the hoodie to shrink in width but maintain its length. This gives the hoodie a more customized look that forms to your body over time.
