Lululemon has been at the top of the athleisure game ever since it launched the line way back in 1998. Today, it’s created a cult-like following – and it’s easy to see why. The brand might have started its popularity era with its viral yoga pants, but it’s continued with many other products and lines. And of them all, we’re absolutely floored by the Scuba style, which is one of our favorites. The line of clothing, helmed by the Lulu Scuba full zip hoodie, is luxurious, thick, and insanely comfortable. In fact, the brand has an entire section dedicated to this line of clothing, aptly called the ‘Scuba Shop.’ Every year, we pick up a few pieces from here, ranging from hoodies and sweatshirts to joggers and even shorts.

Scuba High-Rise Cropped Jogger
We prefer joggers that hit right below our calves. That’s why we love and have been highly recommending the Lululemon Scuba High-Rise Cropped Jogger. Since full-length joggers always bunch at their ankles, these joggers work well for us petite wearers. There are a lot of other things we love about these joggers. For one, the high-rise waistband helped keep them in place on our waist. What’s more, thanks to the drawstring, it can be worn inside or out. Since they’re made from a cotton-blend fleece, these joggers are comfy-cozy, fuzzy, and warm, making them perfect for low-impact activities and casual wear when we run cold. But one of the best things we loved about these joggers is the two front, deep pockets. They offered tons of room for us to stash items such as cash, cards, keys, and our phones for when we’re on the go.

Scuba Oversized Funnel-Neck Half Zip
We come to what is one of the brand’s flagship Scuba products, the Scuba Oversized Funnel-Neck Half Zip. If you’ve scrolled through Lulu’s TikTok, chances are you’re more than familiar with this hoodie, and it sits at the top of even our personal list of athleisure wear. For one, the oversized but not-too-big fit is our idea of the perfect travel outfit. We especially love that it comes in some of the most unique yet wonderful colors we’ve ever seen. While the muted hues like the one in the picture below are very popular, our jam is the storm teal one you see far below. It’s a dark hue that won’t get dirty during travel.
What makes this sweatshirt so great is the high-quality cotton-fleece fabric that’s lightweight, offers warmth, is soft against the skin, and is naturally breathable. Thanks to the kangaroo pocket with the hidden phone sleeve, we were able to stash many essentials even when we went for a run. Meanwhile, the zipper garage kept chafing at bay, while the elastic zipper pull even doubled as an emergency hair tie! Neat, isn’t it? Wrapping up the features is the high neck, which helped keep us warm.
- The oversized fit combined with the cropped length kept it from swallowing us whole.
- It’s available in a funnel neck and hoodie design.
- The hoodie is breathable.
- Some found that sizing down was a better fit.
Scuba High-Rise Shorts
No list of Lulu’s best clothing is complete without shorts, and the Lululemon Scuba High-Rise Shorts need a special mention. We were craving casual comfort, which we found in these soft shorts, which were ideal for cozying up at home or outside. Made from a mixture of 97% ribbed cotton and 3% elastane, these shorts offer lightweight warmth and are naturally breathable. We loved the inclusion of the front pockets with an interior card sleeve. Thus, we were able to carry not just cards and cash but even our keys and phones when we went running in these shorts. But what we truly loved was the presence of the hidden drawcord. Since it was hidden on the inside, we could hide it in for a flat waistband or wear it outside for style.

We’re now going to talk about the pioneer of the Scuba line, the Lulu Scuba Full-Zip Hoodie. First of all, the material is super-soft, warm, and of high quality, with the fleece lining feeling like we were wrapped in our favorite throw blankie. At the same time, we didn’t feel suffocated or claustrophobic. Secondly, we love the flattering fit of this hoodie, even though it comes in Lulu’s usual sizing options. It also hits right at the hip and is neither short nor too long, with the ribbed side panels lending it an excellent shape.
We loved the way it hugged us in all the right places while still being stretchy and relaxed enough for us to be able to move freely. Finally, we appreciated the additional features, such as the deep pockets to hold our phone and the thumb holes for keeping our sleeves securely in place. Heck, there’s even an elastic zipper pull that we could use as a hair tie in emergencies. Genius, right? It’s why it’s also part of the best Lululemon matching sets for women.

How To Choose The Best Lululemon Scuba Clothing For Travel?
Sizing and fit
When we were looking for Lululemon’s scuba clothing, the first thing we looked at was the size. Firstly, the Scuba line has both tops and bottoms. So, we needed to consider the possibility that our size on the top and the bottom might not be the same. That said, if you’re between sizes, consider sizing up. If the top is a little big, it works, but it’s more important for the bottom to be large enough for you to be able to pull them on.
We come to the all-important material factor, and Lulu’s Scuba line is made from a variety of fabrics. Usually, all of the brand’s clothes are made from moisture-wicking fabrics that will keep one cool and dry during any activity. Hence, we looked for tops and bottoms with ventilation holes or mesh holes that would allow us to breathe. Joggers from the brand are usually available in cotton, which is cool and sleek to the touch. The hoodies and tops, on the other hand, are made from a cotton-fleece blend.
We looked for additional features such as hidden and zippered pockets, waistband comfort, whether there was a drawstring for the bottoms and the hoodies, etc.
Should you size up on the Lulu scuba full zip hoodie?
While Lulu’s Scuba hoodie runs true to the size, you can consider sizing up if you want to use it for layering or prefer a looser fit.
