This product was given to me by Backcountry but this review is my personal opinion. This sun shirt is my new favorite piece to wear on outdoor adventures! I've used this shirt while backpacking, hiking, paddling and even to help protect my skin from the sun at horse shows. It has been a life saver during black fly season as well. Love having the hood to keep the bugs and sun off of me. The material is super soft, stretchy and breathable making it super comfortable to wear when the temps rise but also a great layer over a tank top when a breeze picks up on the trail. An added bonus is how fast it dries which has been a plus out on the trail where there is water and your dog needs to shake off right next to you. The body length is perfect and even on the longer side which I prefer giving more room when active. Having longer arms the sleeve length is great as I'm actually able to use the thumb holes comfortably.

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. First impression: silky and stretchy material that looks and feels comfortable. I wore this on a 80 degree and sunny day to protect my skin from sun and bugs. I felt as if the shirt was breathable enough to keep me comfortable with the temperature as well as provided me enough protection from sun and bugs that I had a great day climbing the slab. The material moves well with over head reaching, stretching and climbing. The thumb holes are an extra nice touch and the sleeve length is perfect for me. The colors are vibrant and the print is totally unique. I have already received nice comments on how it looks from friends too. One thing I would have liked is a hoodie pocket on the front but ultimately this is a great lightweight long sleeve shirt that sits nicely underneath my harness. It is one of my favorites to wear either climbing, paddling or doing day to day activities. You can expect to look and feel comfortable wearing this sunshirt from backcountry. It provides a true but loose fit that is perfect for the active adventurer.

After purchasing my partner the men's version of this top, I knew I had to get my own. The sunny lime color is gorgeous and vibrant, and it looks identical to the color on the screen. Some other reviews mentioned the top not fitting well if you're curvy in the hips, but I haven't had any troubles! I do have a longer torso, however, so the shape might hit just right on me. My favorite feature is the thumbholes in the sleeves. I they keep the top in place, but don't feel in the way when I push my sleeves up. I won't lie, the stitching threw me off at first—it twists a bit from the underarm to the thumb, but it hasn't bothered me while wearing it. My biggest and only complaint is a fault of my own. I bought this shirt to block the sun while I ride my bike, so I've unfortunately gotten a good handful of grease stains on the sleeves. A darker color would have been better, but the colors are all bright and beautiful. On the flip side, dark colors will probably be a lot less comfortable in the hotter months, so I'll take my stains and keep on riding. A quick edit. I did remember one thing about this top that does bother me quite a bit. The princess seams on the top are there to be flattering and feminine, but the tag with care information is stitched into this seam, so the tag rubs against my tummy.

I’m a fan of the moss color. And I love the length! I have a long torso with a runners build and it comes over my butt. However, if you’re graced with a juicy booty this might not be your jam or you’ll want to size up. It’s a bit snug without being constricting, and I prefer that to baggy especially since this is a stretchy material. I put it on without a shirt underneath and didn’t experience any itchiness, but my skin isn’t super sensitive. I doubt I’ll be wearing the hood much, I kind of wish is wasn’t there. But at least it’s a low profile hood and I shouldn’t notice it much and it might come in handy on the rare occasion I need it. It feels like a quick dry material so I look forward to testing that out. I’m also looking forward to testing the SPF in the summer desert sun.

The whole sleeves where it’s sewn together , you can just feel the material rub on skin making it feel super uncomfortable and itchy. Other than that , it’s cute ! I usually wear a small in women’s Patagonia and simms sun hoody’s but I ordered a medium in this one . Looks good and fits fine . The threads on the arm were annoying itchy so I returned this .

This hoodie fits me in all the right places, form fitting and breathable. I am 34ddd and I bought 2. Love love the grey color and the green.I do not like clothes so baggy on me. It looks very lean on. If you have bulky or thicker arms this is not for you. I will be buying more.

In all the model photos, I wish I had noticed that the bottom of this hoodie is fitted around the rear end, because it reality it is too snug around the midriff and butt. Really a shame, because everything else about this hoodie is exactly what I want - great color, nice breathable fabric. Don't understand how they could get the bottom cut on this so wrong for a women. So if you have any curves (which most women do at least somewhat), skip this hoodie.
