Shelter from the sun.
Brisk-but-sunny morning hikes can still burn you, which is why the Kuhl Men's Shadow Full-Zip Hoodie has you covered. Kuhl's soft Shadow yarns help this hoodie wick moisture, dry quickly, keep you cool, and protect you from the sun's UV rays. Kuhl added Koncealer mesh panels at the sides to enhance ventilation, and the vented hood gives you extra airflow. Smooth flatlock seams ensure a chafe-free hike.

- Q & A
a good lightweight mid-layer
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: L
Overall, a nice light layer. I am a guy, 5' 10" and 170lbs, and size L is a pretty good fit for me. Possibly I could have gone with size M, as the L is a little long in the sleeves. The material is a bit thinner than I expected and a loose weave, so as an outer layer the wind goes right through. But if you just need a little more than a t-shirt, it's good, and as a light mid-layer it works well: thin enough for under or between other layers. The "vented" hood seems a little silly and would be better without the vent holes (per thin loose weave fabric) but on the plus side the thin hood works well under a helmet or other hat, and will keep snow from falling down your neck, or keep your ears from freezing, without over heating you.
Great Lightweight Hoodie
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: Xl
It is the perfect weight for when you need an extra shirt, but not for the whole day. Warm but not bulky - easy to pack. Great for the cool mornings before the sun comes up or for buildings where they have the air conditioning set too cold!
Like most Kuhl products, it is a little more athletic fit but pretty true to size. If you are between sizes, order the bigger size.
Buy it. You will like it.
