great for hot humid days

I work as a biologist in tropical areas that are hot and humid. This shirt is light enough that I don't get overheated, great for sun protection, and quick dry so I don't feel sticky while in the field. I'm not sure if the lightweight material will hold up in constant bushwhacking but it's great for everything else!

Soft and light

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 8"

Fabric is very light. Great for hot summer days to protect from sun exposure. It may not hold up well to rough wear due to its thin fabric. I bought a medium and it fits as expected.

perfect for a sun shirt or light layer

This is a great shirt for spring/fall running and hiking. it's light enough for summer paddles. I especially like that the hood fits really well - hoods are often too big for my head but this one is not too snug but fits snug enough to not fall off or feel loose.

Love this hoodie!

I've used this for paddle-boarding when it's a little chilly and for protection from the sun. It's also a great base layer for cooler hikes. Very comfortable, has thumb holes and fits true to size! And a cool bonus feature, it has a slit in the hood to pull your ponytail through.!!!

It's a nice lightweight option for sunscreen

I use this as a sun screen for hiking. It's very thin and snags easily but is comfortable. It gets a little hot when you leave the hood down or roll up the sleeves. It's a great packable option for a hike.

Awesome lightweight sun shirt

I wanted something to wear while I did aerobic activities on sunny, warm days. Other sun shirts I tried were too thick- I'd roll up the sleeves (so I might as well have worn a short sleeve) and the shirt would get soaked and stick to me. This sun shirt is thin, so very breathable and fast drying. I know it comes at the cost of sun protection but this is what I was optimizing for.

light and comfy

Amazingly lightweight, quick drying, comfortable. I wish the sleeves were a little bit longer so that I could be more comfortable using the thumb loops.

Great sun hoodie, but lacks inclusive sizing.

I wore this practically nonstop over the summer. It is very lightweight, and great for providing sun protection without too much added insulation. I recommend it for for warm and dry climates, especially when cold water is present to soak it in. Perfect for high alpine hikes, paddle boarding, or even climbing. I also love wearing it as an extra layer between me and my sleeping bag at night. It is not ideal for humid and hot weather, because evaporative cooling is less effective and it can feel sweaty and damp with any long clothing on. My main complaint is the lack of small sizing. OR used to do a great job of inclusive sizing, allowing me as a very small woman to have access to good quality outdoor gear. But, they have recently changed their sizing at the expense of small sizes, and this product is no exception. It's very disappointing that they have done away with what used to be a major selling point for the brand.
