'I'm living in them all day': This super soft Hanes sweatshirt is down to $11 — save almost 50%

What is it?

When it comes to comfort, sometimes it’s best to keep it simple. That’s the consensus among more than 38,000 five-star Amazon reviewers, who’ve anointed the indispensable Hanes EcoSmart Crewneck one of the site’s top-selling sweatshirts. It's truly a sign that this is a wardrobe must-have, especially now that fall is officially here. And among an inventory as vast as Amazon’s, that’s saying a lot.

The Hanes staple is as soft as a blanket and eco-conscious, incorporating at least 5% recycled plastic bottles.

Why is it a good deal?

The fan-favorite is on sale for as little as $11 (almost 50% off!), so if you’re in the market for a great multi-season staple at a terrific price, your search is over. Scoop a bunch up while you can! And though White has the steepest discount, this sweatshirt comes in seven other colors — most for almost the same deal, like Bold Blue Heather, Pale Pink and Ebony.

Why do I need this?

Consider the Hanes EcoSmart Crewneck Sweatshirt a modern-day upgrade to your classic, never-goes-out-of-style sweatshirt, with its ribbed hem and cuffs and iconic V-shaped stitch at the neck. There’s nothing easier to go with a pair of jeans or joggers than a shirt like this, and since it’s mid-weight, it’s a great piece to throw on over a T-shirt or tank top, too.

It's also deliciously soft — another reason shoppers are smitten. So you might be surprised that this gem isn’t just a cotton blend. And it's fitted enough to look streamlined but loose enough that you’ll never feel self-conscious — this is the sweet spot we’re always on the hunt for.

What reviewers say:

A growing number of five-star reviewers love the fit and the way it looks. "It wasn’t too tight and there was still lots of wiggle room in the stomach area. I feel like I have big arms, so it’s hard to find a sweater that fits my stomach as well as my arms, but the sleeves for this pullover fit my arms very well,” reported one customer. "I absolutely love this sweatshirt," revealed another. "It could be a bit longer, but I will surely order more, if available!"

One happy shopper called this gem “an old-school sweatshirt." And a fellow five-star reviewer said it's the “best sweatshirt to dress up or down!”

This fan applauded its eco-friendliness. "What really caught my eye was the neckline, it looks like it sits just a little lower near the top of the collarbone so no more choking. I also like the shorter length and the smaller elastic band at the bottom, as well as the description of the lighter weight fabric — which contains RECYCLED PLASTIC! How cool is THAT?" And here's their tip to avoid shrinkage: "Air-drying on a hanger while still inside-out and then tossing them into a warm dryer (still inside-out) for about 10 minutes afterwards keeps the inside fleece fluffy without shrinking."

Finally, this very satisfied customer said: "I'm living in them all day."

Over 38,000 happy Amazon shoppers have given this wardrobe essential a perfect five-star rating.
