“Ryan, I get that American Giant makes the best hoodie in the world. But, it’s a little too heavy and not as soft as I like. Suggestions?”

Yeah, AG does make the best hoodie as far as durability goes. I have three of them and each is over five years old. Only my shop sweatshirt shows wear. The other two still look brand new despite the fact that I wear them constantly.

That all being said, if you want something softer check out Marine Layer. They are made just as well as American Giant but with softer wearing materials.
