I thought a side by side shot of the new Scuba Hoodie III to the Scuba Hoodie II would be helpful. Having tried it on in store I’m not really sure why the Scuba Hoodie III is a Scuba at all. It just seems more like the usual seasonal none scuba offering. It’s pretty much an On The Daily Hoodie but with thicker fuzzier cotton fleece. Lululemon puts out more stylish versions of cotton fleece jackets (like the En Route Jacket) over the winter months so I’m not sure how this jacket really fits in. It is soft and comfortable and definitely stretchier and more relaxed than a scuba but the Scuba Hoodie II is more flattering and substantial in design. I think the Scuba Hoodie II is warmer as well, although the III is snuggly.
The Scuba III is more generously sized and it felt looser than the Scuba II which I probably would have sized up in. Both the Scuba II and the Scuba III in these pictures are size 10. The Scuba III also appears to be longer and fit hits lower on the hip than the Scuba II.
