Just past the halfway point of Amazon’s Prime Big Deal Days sale, customers are flocking to check out the deals on fitness equipment, boots to wear this fall, and even gifts to start their holiday shopping before the crowds. But one of the best items to land during the October Prime Day sale is a well-known, fan-favorite: the Champion Powerblend Hoodie. Right now, in select but popular colors like charcoal, red, black, white, and navy, the iconic autumnal layer is on sale for just $25—50% off the original price of $50.
The Powerblend is one of Champion’s two most popular men’s hoodie styles, next to the Reverse Weave hoodie. The main difference is that the Reverse Weave is mainly cotton and a little heavier to keep warm in frigid mornings or evenings, while the Powerblend is an even split of cotton and polyester, making it a little lighter and better suited for moderate temperatures in fall, for layering in winter, and for the up-and-down of spring.
Champion Men’s Powerblend Hoodie, $25 (was $50) on Amazon
[$25 (was $50); amazon.com]
Aside from the cotton/polyester blend material, this Champion Powerblend hoodie is a pull-over style with a drawstring closure that helps you hide from the cold (or the world). Ribbed cuffs further protect from falling temps by locking in the heat and also give you the option of pulling (and keeping) the sleeves up. If you look closely, you’ll notice the beloved Champion “C” logo both on the chest and left sleeve. Machine washable, it’s not a particularly slim fit hoodie, but also isn’t boxy—somewhere right in-between.
This is one of those hoodies that has withstood the test of time and trends because, as the adage goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Folks keep reaching for the Champion Powerblend time after time, regardless of the year, because it just always works. That’s what’s earned it over 45,000 five-star ratings, and an 80% perfect score, at that. Customers just love it, but why?
Some, like this customer, note the weight and softness. “Perhaps I’ve found the perfect hoodie?! Got mine for $25 (50%) off. Perfect weight—not too heavy, not too light. The interior material is super soft. I ordered an XXL (6’2”/250lbs) and after washing/drying, it’s perfect,” they said.
Other customers like how safe the Champion Powerblend hoodie is to give as a gift, like this customer, who said, “I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved it. It comes in several other colors so I might have to buy one for myself before I steal his hoodie.” (This is also great to note for anybody with hoodie-stealing partners.)
At $25 for the Champion Powerblend hoodie, it’s hard to do much better for one of the most rudimentary and mandatory fall layers a man can have. Even if you’re on the fence, it’s worth ordering at this price, so make sure to do it before the Prime Day sale ends tonight at 12 a.m. PST.
