    Fairly Thin

      This thing is extremely comfortable, the soft polyester feels nice as a base layer for hot days or as another layer for cooler days in the desert. The material does have drawbacks though, due to how thin it is. After wearing this thing around the house because it was so comfortable I decided to take it to the desert as a way to escape the harsh sun that is apparent even in the fall. As I clipped my helmet to climb a route, before taking the hoody off, a strand of the sleeve cuff stitching got caught on the clasp and pulled out half of the stitching on my right arm cuff. I have had issues with Patagonia's hoodies before: the R1 3/4 zip shredded after only about 10 or so pitches and now I have holes all over my arms and a nice big'n in my armpit.

      Poor Stiching In The Sleeves

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      The first day I wore this product the stitching in the sleeve began to unravel on both sleeves. I was on a river/fishing trip in the Amazon jungle. Over the next couple of days it continued to unravel. Other than this, I liked the shirt a lot. It was comfortable in the heat and humidity. It gave good sun protection. It helped insulate me from the bugs. The gray fabric did stain easily and would catch on thorns and branches, but I was tolerant of this. The relaxed fit was quite comfortable. I sent it back to Patagonia for repair.

      They sent me an email with a credit saying it could not be repaired. I hoped they could reinforce the sleeves and I would keep the shirt, I liked it otherwise. I’m hesitant to get another from Patagonia since other reviews at Patagonia suggest this is a common issue with this product. I bought the shirt from Backcountry who said Patagonia insisted that the products be returned to Patagonia for repair/replacement. Since Patagonia won’t repair the shirt, I’d rather have a refund for a defective product than a credit forcing me to buy something else from Patagonia I don’t really need or want. It appears I don’t have any recourse in this matter. I can’t recommend the shirt only because of the stitching problem. It’s hard to justify $80.00 for something that in all likelihood will not hold up as described. I’d also like a refund instead of a credit, it kind of feels like I’ve been duped.

      Functional but somewhat delicate

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 145lbs

      This piece is great! Nearly perfect but somewhat delicate (obviously).

      As advertised, this shirt does exactly what it's supposed to do which keeps you protected from the sun and also does not overheat you. The drawback is that this shirt is perhaps more delicate than many other layers you might choose for outdoor pursuits and in my case climbing. I imagine making a burlier shirt would sacrifice the breathability so I can't really complain. Definitely bringing this on every trip, warm or cold. I've used it in direct sun in Yosemite and in the shade and loved it in both cases.

      I love that I can pull this shirt on and off very easily over a climbing helmet and that the hood is very comfortable pulled over a helmet, this isn't a quality I've seen in any other garment.

      Prevent the burn

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      This is a great top for fishing on a river. The oversized hood protects your face and neck well. Quick drying and no need to reapply sunscreens which ca be harmful to the watershed as well.

      Runs pretty big

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      This is not so much of the product review since I returned it before using it. It runs pretty large. I normally wear men's small top but this one is pretty baggy (I know it's part of the design) that I have to return it. Since Banckcountry did not stock XS I tried it from a different store and it turned out pretty baggy as well even though the sleeve length was perfect. I recommend ordering one size smaller for the average built person.

      Comfortable but very delicate

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      What's good: it's very comfortable, especially for sun protection in warm weather; the fit is good.
      What's needs improvement: the fabric snags and pulls VERY VERY easily. I don't think I'm very hard on my gear, and I'm not taking it anyplace with branches or thorns that might justifiably snag it.
      After wearing the hoodie ~7 times it's already looking pretty bad - the front and back have quite a few horizontal snag lines running across. It's about ready to become a painting shirt, and for the price point getting there this quickly really isn't very good.

      Love the shirt, but definitely size down

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      I bought the men's because I liked the color, and the pocket placement better than the women's version. I got a mens medium because I did not want it to be super tight, but It was HUGEE when I put it on. I am going to exchange for a small in hopes that it'll fit! I love the shirt and cannot wait to wear it on the river!

      awesome shirt

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      I bought this for my teenage son to protect him out fishing every day this summer. He loves it and has not been sunburned since wearing it. Light color is nice and the oversized hood he is a fan of.

      Prevents skin cancer

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'6"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Whether I'm working outside, fishing, or anything that involves standing in the sun for extended periods of time, this is my go to garment. Way better than covering yourself with sunscreen every couple hours. As with every Patagonia clothing item I own, seems to be stain resistant and does not get dirty or smell easily. Also gotta love Patagonia's lifetime guarantee. I plan to use the Sunshade hooded shirt for many seasons to come.

      Little Warmer than Expected

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      Picked this up so I could stop lobstering myself on hikes and surf/fish trips. It is pretty good looking, simply designed, and crazy light. I really enjoy how small it packs for putting in my bag too. So far it doesn't smell like a ripe onion, but we will see what happens after I wear it a week straight.

      It weirdly doesn't stain that easily, even after 3 washes. I spilled salsa/carnitas on it at a restaurant, got super bummed, then went to remove the food and almost all of it came off with no issue.

      Two downsides I have come across. 1) The sizing runs a little large. I am 6' and 175-180 and this is the first time I have fit easily in a medium in quite awhile. I am not swimming in it, but it is not tight. 2) It is steamier than I thought. I have yet to use it in water and test it in tropical use, but back in humid Minnesota, it was pretty warm. I will take those if it means I don't get torched.

      So Fresh and So Clean

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'6"
      • Weight: 155lbs

      This Sunshirt is a great addition to any outdoorsmans wardrobe. I wear it on the warmest of summer days and I am able to stay cool when hiking from lake to lake in the Uintas or climbing in down in Moab. The fit is like anything else in the Patagonia Technical Fishing series and runs relaxed, I find that a size down is generally a perfect fit for a sun shirt like this. If you have the Tropic Comfort already than this is a very similar shirt, however, the fabric is almost more of a tight jersey knit which attributes to its extreme breathability.

      I live in it

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      This shirt is perfect for spring ski mountaineering to keep the altitude sun at bay, without overheating. On the way home from the mountain you can stop to fish the river, amazing there as well. Does have a funk over time...but I also slack with washing it.

      Perfect for Summer desert hiking

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      Based on so many reviews, I was initially worried that I should have ordered a size down medium instead of a large. I'm 5' 11 190 lbs. with a slim/athletic frame. The large fits perfectly. A little loose, which is how you want this hoody to fit so that it keeps you cool. Lightweight and durable. The light grey is a perfect color for reflecting sunlight also.

      Winter? Summer? Love it anyways

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 150lbs

      Originally got this shirt for spring and fall desert backpacking to keep the sun off and still keep me warm at night and cool at day. When I got it, I was so surprised at how warm it is even mid-January. It has only taken one trip to the desert so far but has already proved its worth on some pretty serious sandstone walls. Not only has it been exceptional while being active but I wear it to sleep at home, when going to the grocery, taking the dog for a walk or going for your mid-afternoon run. Dries incredibly fast and sheds light precip. Even when the weather has been warmer when I've been outside and active I have not struggled a single bit with over-perspiring or heating.

      Wear it every where

      • Size Bought: Med
      • Height: 6'

      I originally purchased this for backcountry spring skiing but now I just live in it. This hoodie is nice and soft and stretchy. The thumbholes, well fitted hood with button, and lightness are all touches that make this a 5 start shirt and not just an expensive tech shirt. Patagonia put a lot of thought into the design and its great for outdoor pursuits

      Loving this recent purchase!

      "The Patagonia hoody is working out very well - for cool afternoon/evening boat outings and as a layering piece. Very comfortable & the quality is high! 5 stars" --(BONUS: UPF 50 sun protection)

      I picked this up for my fiance, and it's made a great addition to the slew of outdoor gear- perfect for hiking, hangin out, biking, etc. The fabric is super soft- I actually found this material to be a little more soft to the touch than the ladies Sunshade hoodie. Also super lightweight and somewhat breathable, making it easier to wear in the hot temps. So far, it's been super durable too- he's put it through the wringer the past couple of months, and it's holding strong. As far as sizing goes, found it to fit true to size- he typically takes a L top, and the large fits well with a little extra room.

      Pretty good

      This is a pretty good shoodie for days out under the sun. I bought this one and the patagonia Tropic Comfort II Hooded Shirt as well, and while I think both are great, the Tropic Comfort II Hooded Shirt weighs less and keeps me cooler for sure. This is shirt is a great second option if you can not get the Tropic Comfort II Hooded Shirt.

      I'm 5'10" 175lbs with athletic build and bought a medium, wish I had gotten a small.

      Excellent for the tropics

      Gave as a birthday gift and he was stoked! Excellent, lightweight protection from the Belizian sun during a fly-fishing trip. Will get plenty of use on the river and at the beach this spring.
