I really like this hoodie! It is extremely comfortable and soft. I think it is pretty warm but as of late the temperatures have been too low to wear it by itself, so I do not know how it is by itself. The color is not black at all -- rather a darkish gray. There also isn't a logo anywhere on it, unlike the picture. One flaw I did find was that on the inside of the zipper there is already a ton of strings coming off.
