    Alpenglow Hooded Shirt

    Shield yourself from the sun with the Black Diamond Men's Alpenglow Hooded Shirt during long days on belay under the searing desert sun. Its lightweight fabric protects your skin from harsh UV rays without making you overheat, and it wicks sweat to help you stay dry and cool. Mobility-enhancing underarm gussets and an under-the-helmet hood allow you to wear it while climbing without feeling like you're in a straight jacket. Black Diamond also added a polygiene anti-odor treatment to keep the car from smelling foul on the long car ride back from the desert.

    • Sun protection and moisture management for sunny climbing
    • Lightweight, stretchy fabric blocks UV rays and wicks sweat
    • Underarm gussets allow unrestricted range of motion
    • Polygiene treatment prevents odor buildup
    • Low-profile hood fits under climbing helmet

    Great sun shirt

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    A very lightweight hoody with a 50+ UPF rating. Prevents the exhaustion that comes with too much Sun, not to mention skin damage. Great for exposed ridge hikes, and early morning and late afternoon Sun while moving around camp.
    The material is so light, you can rinse it in a Lake or Brook, wring it out, and it will dry within a hour while worn and within in a few hours attached to the outside of a pack. I cannot attest to durability.

    Feeling fresh

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 133lbs

    I've never owned UV protected clothing before getting this shirt. Love the feel, and the added fact that you don't need to wash after a day of wear, have yet to take it out in the sun for an all day hike/climb, but I'm excited to see how it holds up!

    Harmful UV Rays Beware

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 102lbs

    As a frequent desert goer and someone who spends much of their time in the sun, it's imperative that I protect my skin. Lots of sunscreen and many wide brim hats help, but UPF rated garments really add another layer of security and the Alpenglow top is perfect for this.



    I have the women's model and I love it. It breathes well, the color is amazing, its treated with Polygiene which I have first-hand experience with in regards to its anti-odor properties (5 stars!), and its comfortable



    It works well under a harness, and the hood serves as yet another way to shield the back of your neck from the sun. It's lightweight, so you can wear this underneath a midlayer, over a synthetic tshirt, or as a standalone layer.



    You could definitely wear this for doing basically anything outdoors where you will be exposed to the sun for extended periods of time. The material is a little bit delicate as far as climbing clothing goes (meaning mine already has nicks and pills on it from my chest brushing against a rock wall or indoor climbing wall) , but as long as it's not abused it should last a couple of seasons.



    Here's a picture of when I wore this climbing in Rock Canyon down in Provo, Utah!



    Fit: True to size, a little long.
