If there is one article of clothing that is virtually accepted, it’s the hoodie. Wearable in every season and every part of the world, hoodies are great to wear over a shirt or when the weather is a little chillier than usual. However, beyond the basic styles or colors of sweatshirts, there are also some really cool hoodies available. Whether you are a part of an associated fandom or are just looking for something unique, there is a little bit of something for everyone.
So without further ado, here are the top 10 cool hoodies to buy:
1. Fallout Hoodie
Fallout 4 is easily one of the best games of 2015, and now you can represent Vault 111 as the Sole Survivor with this stylish Fallout hoodie. This sweatshirt features the vibrant blue found on the vault suits, as well as the number and yellow trim that represents the iconic wear required by the Overseer. Personally, I own the Vault 101 hoodie based on the player vault from Fallout 3, and it is made of very high quality materials and is not thin like many sweatshirts are. This particular set on ThinkGeek features a 111 hoodie, a 111 backpack, Vault Boy Lunchbox, Fallout 4 flag, Nuka Cola shot glass, an Intelligence bobblehead, and a keychain, making it a great value for any Wastelander!

2. Mewgaroo Hoodie
Cat hoodies are undeniably cute, especially when the hoods have mini cat ears on them. However, what about a hoodie that can literally hold a cat in the pouch? This kangaroo-like sweatshirt features a cat like design, as well as a special pouch in the middle to hold a real kitty (or small animal). For feline-lovers who love to cuddle up with their favorite pets, this hoodie is perfect. Imagine how comfortable and warm it would be, especially in the coming winter months.
3. Assassin’s Creed Inspired Hoodie
There is one thing about Assassin’s Creed that stays true no matter what the installment is, the characters look so amazing in their robes, coats, and outfits. Although this hoodie is not a cosplay or officially like a specific character’s attire, the design is heavily inspired by the popular game series. The sweatshirt looks very flattering and stylish, making it a great choice for anyone who wants to look cool or wear something inspired by Ezio and the assassins in the story. The large hood makes for an added bonus, adding to the “assassin” feel.
4. Light Up Electro Hoodie
Whenever you go to a rave, a nightclub, or an electronic music festival, there is bound to be a multitude of black lights, neon colors, glow in the dark effects, and light shows. Many people who attend these events also have some accessories that make them stand out in the crowd. If you have some extra cash and want to look absolutely awesome, this Light Up Electro Hoodie is perfect for any dance or rave.
