When you are looking at custom uniform printing you might decide to offer your employees a lightweight hoodie as part of that ensemble. There are some good reasons to include different types of hoodies. It gives them the ability to wear them during all seasons, they can market for you when they stroll down the road with your hoodie on, and they are comfortable and versatile as well. Whether they want to wear them when they just want an extra layer outside, at work or when heading out for some kind of activity, lightweight hoodies have a lot to add to someone’s wardrobe. Here is a look at the features that make a hoodie lightweight rather than medium or heavyweight.
Features that make a hoodie lightweight
Here is a look at things like construction, fabric choice, weight, breathability and more that make a hoodie lightweight.
What the hoodie is made of
The fabric the hoodie is made from is very important in determining the type of hoodie it is in terms of weight. Lightweight hoodies are thinner and tend to be made from materials that are also not as dense as what you will see with heavyweight hoodies. Typical fabrics you see with lightweight hoodies are tri-blends, cotton jersey, light fleece and cotton-polyester blends.
Is it travel-friendly?
A lightweight hoodie is going to be a lot easier to travel with because of its thinner nature. It takes up a lot less room in a suitcase so it makes a lot of sense to travel with when you need something a bit warmer in cooler evenings while you travel. It is also easier to carry around a lightweight hoodie if you do not want to wear it right then.
The weight of the fabric
Another aspect people enjoy with lightweight hoodies as part of a tshirt printing or as active wear is that the fabric weighs less. On average you will find heavyweight hoodies weigh over 300 grams per square meter, and lightweight hoodies between 150 to 200.
Certain choices in construction
Lightweight hoodies are made in a different way to other types of hoodies using finer and thinner yards and thread and techniques that while still durable are not as heavy.
Great for warmer and transitional weather
Lightweight hoodies are perfect for evenings in the warmer months, and for transitional weather like you find in the autumn and spring. They offer some warmth without being too bulky.
The material is more breathable
Enjoy custom uniform printing using lightweight hoodies as the material is more breathable so owners and employees have better air circulation and are less likely to overheat.
Used as activewear
They are perfect as activewear because of their breathability and how easy it is to use them to layer up and down depending on where you are working out. They are comfortable as well so they will not annoy you as you run, do yoga or do any other workout.
Uses fewer layers
Being thinner when these are worn whether as a custom made uniform or for another purpose, you can layer up more easily should you need to. You can wear them more comfortably under a jacket for example and they are more versatile to style with.
