The Ushood® ("you should") Story



Our Mema, sewed the first “shoodie” after Sean came off the mountain and did a quick sketch of what would become the perfect base layer. It was an instant favorite. Different from a sweatshirt hoodie because of the breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics we used and maximum protection coverage – it was a true base layer for every adventure and activity.  We used it while skiing, running, cycling, fishing and gardening. We wore our Ushoods on the sidelines while our kids wore them on the fields as they played their sports.

Ushood® take on life with comfort & confidence - and without gappage to slow you down. #UshoodDoU!

Mindfully Making a Difference

If we don’t take care of Mother Earth, where will we boogie, bike, ski, board, camp, run, etc? 

Team Ushood® cares very much about our role in this effort, and we’d like to share some of the ways we are walking the walk.

No Poly Plastic Bags!

Much to our manufacturer’s dismay, Ushood® is their only client who refuses to wrap any of our items in poly plastic bags. This decision alone has saved thousands upon thousands of plastic bags from ending up in a landfill or ocean.Additionally, the little bit of packaging we use to protect Ushoods for our customers are all natural fiber reusable bags and/or recycled tissue paper. Reduce, reuse and recycle, baby!

Bag the Tags!

What’s the first thing you do with a hang tag on any clothing items you buy? My guess is that 99% of you said that you rip them off, occasionally creating a hole in your brand new garment, and throw it away. Ushood® has no interest in putting holes in our high quality base layers or creating unnecessary waste. You can find our care instructions online and on a recyclable info card included in your order.

Ditch the Itch!

Who needs a scratchy tag in the collar of their base layers when all of that info can be included on the interior of the fabric? No one, that’s who.  We go to the effort to make our base layers extra soft, especially on the inside, and that includes being tag-free. No gappage and no taggage mean ultimate comfort for U.

No one person or organization can solve all of the world’s problems – or even one problem all on its own. However, if we all take small steps within our capabilities, they will add up and make a huge difference. Thank you for learning about the ways in which we are doing our part.
