9 of the Warmest Hoodies for Winter To Keep You Toasty

The hoodie remains one of the most useful garments in any man’s wardrobe, and it’s also a great way to fend off the cold. There are all kinds of hoodies available these days, so we’ve tried to include a variety of styles in our list of the warmest hoodies for winter.

Best hoodies for winter

We all love hoodies for their comfort, anonymity, and versatility, and when the weather turns chilly, a decent hoodie is one of the best garments to keep you warm.

Hoodies used to have a bad rep for being oversized and baggy “throw-on,” but things have changed with the latest hoodies fitting better and having bags more style than ever before.

Warmest hoodies for winter

Carhartt Rain Defender Rutland Thermally Lined Hoodie

The Rain Defender by Carhartt is a great hoodie for those chilly winter mornings.

This beautifully made hoodie is one of the warmest and a godsend when the heavens open. This garment is designed with rain in mind; you stay pretty warm even when it gets wet.

The standout feature of the Rain Defender is in its name. It features a durable water-repellent finish to keep out the rain if caught in a sudden downpour.

Oozing quality, the hoodie is thermally lined and made from 50% cotton / 50% polyester fleece. It features a full-length brass zipper and two hand-warmer pockets. The waistband and cuffs are stretchable and very hard-wearing for more comfort. Inside, you will find a handy pocket with a zipper closure and a locker loop to hang your keys on.

If you’ve owned Carharrt gear before, you’ll know the materials’ quality and the artistry level employed in their garments.

The “tough-as-nails” Carharrt Rain Defender is one of the best warm hoodies on Amazon right now and is perfectly used down to about 30 – 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
