If you don't want to look like a lobster after a day of fishing on the open ocean or a high-altitude mountain stream, shield your face from the sun with the Patagonia Sun Mask. The ultralight and breathable fabric shades your skin, wicks sweat, and dries quickly to actually keep you cooler than if you weren't wearing anything, not to mention that it blocks out harsh UV rays to protect you from sunburn. Its tapered design covers the neck and keeps the mask in place without constriction or pressure points. It can also be worn as a headband, hat, or neck gaiter, making it a versatile piece that belongs in any angler's pack.

- Q & A
It's too big and loose.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
It uses the same fabric that Patagonia Tropic Comfort II Hooded Shirt uses, and even the color that I picked is the same as my Tropic Comfort II, which is why I give it two stars. This thing only has one size but I normally wear medium hat. So I figured it would fit me when I ordered it. However, this thing is too big and loose to stay on my head/ face. I can imagine how miserable I'll be wearing it on a boat that's sailing. Sorry but I sent it back right away.
Light weight but effective
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Size Bought: one size
Used this to hold my hair back and cover my face while skiing. I like that it is thin but keeps my head warm when used under my helmet. Helped block the wind and kept me warm.
Looking forward to get full use out of it in the summer while hiking.
Must item for my summer mountain climbs
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I have used when hiking/climbing Mt.Baker in Washington: great lightweight protection for my head and neck. It's a very practical item to have: you now have a hat, head, neck and face protection when needed.
As it is with 99% of Patagonia's apparel this sun mask is outstanding, unlike most buffs, this one actually features a tapered design that actually gives you premium protection around your neck as well as your face!
Not just for fishing
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
My hair tends to get a little longer during the colder months or while I'm doing activities in the cold so I am always trying to find ways to keep the hair out of the eyes. A hat isn't always the best solution because then you have a soggy hat band, so I thought I would pick up one of these guys to try since I watched my buff fly off my head while climbing Mt Whitney a couple months ago. This works great for everything I needed and more. It works as a neck gaiter, balaclava, hat, or wristband and since there is a ton of material, it definitely works better as a headband if you roll up the material a bit to make it not so wide. It is lightweight and extremely breathable and I was pretty impressed with how fast it dries. The tapered design is noticed while wearing as well and seems to be more comfortable with how it rests on your shoulders vs the bagginess of a buff as it rests at the base of your neck. It is super light and helps keep the sunburn away, even at the high altitudes on the snow.
