Read, Writing, Hood - A Hoodie with a notebook pocket?
March 19, 2009 10:42 AM   Subscribe

Where can I get a light zippered hoodie with a vertical pocket that'd fit a notebook and pen?

I need a new hoodie for spring, and I'd like it to have a pocket that'd fit a small notebook (3"x5") and pen. The closest I've found so far is from Carhartt, but it's a bit heavy, while the one from ScottEVest has way too many pockets.

It'd be nice if it was available in the US somewhere I could try it on before purchase, but that's not a deal breaker.

tldr:
  • Men's hoodie, front zipper.
  • Lightweight: cotton/polyester or the like.
  • Vertical pocket, interior or exterior

Karmaloop has a decent selection of stylish ones, some with pockets, some without.

is carhartt's midweight sweatshirt too heavy?

phil: It doesn't have any vertical pockets, just the handwarmer ones.

I should clarify that by "vertical pocket", I mean something akin to a breast pocket.

Ah. These then? 1 2 3 4

There's probably more, but those jumped out at me.

You could install your own. If you're worried about the looks of your sewing skills, you could put it on the inside. Conversely, you could pay someone to do this for you, either via Craigslist or an actual alterations shop. Either way, you would then have control over the look and location. Paying someone shouldn't cost too much, either a DIYer or a professional, especially if you're looking to get a new hoodie primarily for this pocket.

I have this LFC jacket, which has an inside pocket, which leads me to believe that Adidas might make a hoodie like you want.

I swear by Scottevest. Their whole schtick is cramming as many useful pockets into an item of clothing as is humanly possible.
