We checked the sizing of this style with our Fit Check mannequins Huey and Dewey. They are wearing size Medium and XL jackets respectively. These are their “usual” sizes and they work just fine. We also checked the chest and belly of the other sizes and find them to fit OK too. Therefore, we recommend you choose the size you normally wear in men’s clothing. if you are between sizes, choosing down is probably the best move.
The overall fit of this hoodie is relaxed compared to other US brands, which is to say, roomy through the torso with a relaxed fit. If you are slim and tall, you may need to size down one size from what you normally wear. Average or stout built people will probably be happy with the overall cut.
You can also choose a size by measuring your chest and belly and using the chart (below) which lists max chest and max belly sizes for each hoodie size. The measurements in the chart are a combination of the manufacturer’s size chart and also the measurements we take on the product samples. After you measure, you can choose a hoodie size using the chart. You’ll want to choose a size that will accommodate both your chest and belly.

Our Two Cents
The Noru Hoodie is new for 2022.
This hoodie is a casual style with a very relaxed fit. The material is quite stretchy so it should be an easy fit. The hood has a drawstring closure and is NOT detachable. The hoodie has an airflow mesh lining that allows your body to breathe while still maintaining the micro-climate under the outer shell.
CE level 1 armor is included in the elbows and shoulders and there is a pocket for an optional back protector if you wanted to upgrade (see related products below). The impact areas around the armor are reinforced with 40% Aramid with 60% polyester. Just remember that all that reinforcement is attached to non-reinforced cloth so it won’t do too much good in a slide.
Overall the Noru Hoodie is comfortable with an easy stretchable fit. It should work well for someone looking for a casual style jacket with minimal reinforcements. This hoodie is better than wearing one without the limited reinforcements and armor, but it’s only slightly better so beware. :: Mike, 04/25/2022
