Why We Like The ActiveIce Spectrum Sun Hoodie

The idea of wearing a hoodie to cool down might seem counterintuitive, but Outdoor Research's ActiveIce Spectrum Sun Hoodie uses self-cooling technology to keep us comfy on warm, sunny hikes. Plenty of sun protection and moisture-wicking breathability keep us moving up and down mountains in refreshed comfort when temps are rising.

Great protection for the sun and heat!

I'm a pale skinned redhead that loves spending time outdoors in the summer. This hoodie saved me! It keeps me covered (so I don't turn into a tomato) while also keeping me cool. Very comfortable and I love wearing it!

Finally found it!

I had been looking for a cool sun shirt for a long time. Either the fit wouldn't work or the material, color, etc. This one is perfect and comfortable! Feels soft and light on the skin.

Love it - great sun shirt!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 2"

I live in Phoenix and need to protect my sun-damaged skin from further damage. This sun shirt is perfect! The material is thin and cool and the fit is flattering. The shirt is pretty long, so I just tuck in and it still looks great. Worth the price!

Light and cool

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wear this hoodie in warm weather when I also want to stay covered up, and it works. It does keep me cooler. It's lightweight, fits true to size.

Beautiful, soft, light-weight

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I think this product actually does what it's described as doing--keeps you cooler in hot weather, even though it's got long sleeves and a hoodie. Also, the colors are beautiful. I bought a blue one and the yellow. I'm really happy with them.

My favorite sun shirt!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Nice lightweight sun shirt. I really like this fabric - it is soft like a cotton t-shirt and less likely to snag than some other sun shirts that are more spandex material, but still breathable.

Great product, would recommend.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Have been very happy with this product. It keeps me cool and protected from the sun when hiking on hot summer days in the mountains. I was originally worried it would be too hot since the material is so thick compared to the echo hoodie, but it has been really great. I love that I can go outside, be comfortable, not overheat and feel protected from the sun in this. I am 5'1", 105lbs. I do agree with other reviews stating that the XS runs a little long in the torso. I wish OR had an XXS option that fits like the XXS echo hoodie. However, I'm still happy with the product and would recommend. Other wish is that OR made a 30spf hoodie. Something that offers more protection than the echo hoodie but isn't as thick as the spectrum hoodie.
