Hey everyone,

Welcome back to blog! Today I have another review for you, and today we’ll be looking at another garment from my friends over at Viper Tactical - the Armour Hoodie!

The Viper Armour hoodie is made from 300gms polyester bonded Ribtech fleece and has a Polyester brushed lining on the inside. As for design, nothing much stands out as it is a pretty standard hoodie (sorry Viper!) - featuring one large front pocket, elasticated wrist cuffs with thumbholes, a drawstring hood and it has the added feature of heat-treated hook and loop patches on shoulders with the Viper logo.

The Viper Armour Hoodie has been designed for those who are looking for a versatile sweatshirt - for airsoft or everyday wear. What I really like about this hoodie is that it isn’t particularly ‘tactical’ looking so it can be worn in everyday life without looking out of place. I really like to wear this with my 5.11 leggings when I’m training for AIPSC or on a jog. The material that it is made of is quite thin but despite this, it is a cosy hoodie. It shields the wind and raw brushed polyester lining feels soft on the skin which is much welcomed. As it’s lightweight it is great to play in during cold weather, if the weather is particularly bad though I would probably use this an underlayer as it isn’t waterproof or water-resistant to my knowledge. Otherwise, it performs well on its own. The elasticated wrist cuffs definitely help with temperature control and keeping drafts coming through the sleeves to a minimum.

How does it fit? In the Armour Hoodie, I opted for the smallest size (S) and the small fits well - it isn’t too long on the body and the arms cover my wrists when my arms are extended. It isn’t baggy but you have plenty of room to move. I wear a UK size 8/10 and the small is a great fit for me, if you like yours a little baggy, I’d recommend going at least a size up. I would love to see this also in an XS to see what the difference in size would be.

The range of sizes is really inclusive, the Viper Armour Hoodie is available in S - 3XL and it is available in colours black, green, coyote and Titanium. I chose black to be worn with my Cam black loadout and I think the black looks smart enough to wear in everyday life.

The Viper Armour Hoodie retails for around £24.95 depending on the retailer but this seems to be the average. The price point is affordable and nothing to raise an eyebrow at.

Overall, I think Viper has done a great job with the Armour Hoodie - it is lightweight but still made of a cosy and quite durable material. It has features that help keep out drafts in less than forgiving weather. It fits well and the sizing is pretty true to size. It’s also affordable. Whether you purchase this for airsoft or every day, I think it’s a solid purchase.
