Good product

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:

I love this shirt. The only thing about it is, and i dont know if its me, but it has cuts where my garmin watch sits on my left wrist. They seem to line up with my wrist watch exactly. I have never had this happen with a shirt before, so im not sure if its a defect or my 7year old watch is more destructive than i realized. Other than that i absolutley love this shirt. The materials is in my opinion better than the columbia sun shirts i spend most of my summer outdoors wearing.

Sun Hoodie is perfect for summer

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

I have several of these Sun Hoodies. I actually wear them most every day. I use the hood with a baseball cap to keep the sun off my face and neck. The fabric is very breathable and comfortable in warm weather.

An excellent garment. Highly breathable and surprisingly durable. Survived two days of bushwhacking in holy cross wilderness. I was impressed!

Great Shirt! Better Than The Rest

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
Medium and Large

This is a great shirt. I bought four Tahoe 2 Sun Hoodies (another summer hoodie by a well known brand,) and two Backcountry Tahoes in the crew neck version. The Backcountry Tahoe Sun Hoodie/Crew are clearly the best. It's the material. It is unlike another the others. Super light, comfortable, but substantial. Way to go Backcountry. (I was going to buy another crew, but you sold-out of the color that I wanted!

It's Fine

I've used it several times

It's fine, runs quite large as others have mentioned, size down at least one size. It's less expensive than other brands, we'll see. In general, I will say that I don't know what happened to backcountry. When you ask for help, or otherwise ask questions, they're generally unhelpful these days. Didn't used to be that way. After the last experience I've decided it's better to just go to REI or some other brick and mortar store where they are helpful (backcountry in store wasn't) have more flexible policies, and want customers. I just dropped $1k at REI, that could have been at Backcountry, I would have saved about 10% on Backcountry, not worth it. Hope it was worth the $10.

Really really good

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 6"

Incredibly happy with these. I bought a few for trail running, hiking and working in the yard. They breathe incredibly well, block the sun nicely and don’t snag like some sun clothing tends to do. They run slightly large, but most sun clothing seems to. The thumb holes are clutch to reduce knuckle and finger sun burn on long outings above tree line.
