Baja hoodies, those comfortable, warm, and cozy natural fiber hoodies first made popular by hippies and surfers in the 1970's, are experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Thanks to the rising interest in natural fibers, environmentally and ecologically friendly outerwear, and focus on sustainable industry, the Baja hoodie, as it is most commonly termed, is being worn and seen again. Baja hoodies can be worn by men, women, and children with equal success, and its popularity stems not from its association with certain subcultures or pursuits but quite simply with its comfort, versatility and unique colors, patterns, and styles. Learn more about Baja hoodies as you shop, and select the color and style that is right for you.
Baja hoodies are constructed in a single pullover fashion with no zippers, no buttons, and no hooks. Except for the string that adjusts the tightness of the pullover hood, the Baja hoodie is a single piece that goes on one way and comes off the opposite way. Baja hoodies are versatile easy to layer with, and can be worn with jeans, shorts, khakis, and pants, and are perfect for climates where daytime warm temperatures may transition to cooler temperatures at night.
While named for Baja Mexico, the Baja hoodie actually originated in South American native cultures and got its name as it stopped through Baja, Mexico en route to the United States, where its stateside popularity began to grow. The Baja hoodie is also commonly called the Baja jacket, the Baja pullover, the Baja shirt, the Baja sweatshirt, the Baja hoodie pullover, and the Mexican Baja poncho. All terms refer to the singular Baja hoodie.
The Baja hoodie is made in simple sizes - small, medium, large, extra large, extra extra large, and extra extra extra large. It is a simple garment with a simple purpose, and is a refreshing alternative to the often complex and confusing myriad of sizing gradations found in coats or outerwear in traditional department or sports stores. Child sizes are usually marked as such, as are men's and women's. Most Baja hoodies are also pre-shrunk and so as far as sizing goes, what you see on the tag is what will endure through washing and rewashing.
