Tropic Comfort II Hooded Shirt

A sunny day out on the water would be absolutely perfect if it wasn't for the constant bite of the sun on your back, but you can keep the bite on your line by covering up with the Patagonia Tropic Comfort II Hooded Shirt. This ultralight and quick-drying hoodie provides UPF 50 level protection from the sun that extends from the back of your hands to the top of your head thanks to the thumbholes and slightly oversized hood, which easily flips up over your favorite fishing hat when that punishing sun won't quit. The newest version of this Patagonia staple is made with Capilene Cool Daily fabric, which was engineered specifically to perform in hot climates, giving you advanced breathability and moisture-wicking performance for your long days out in the sun.

  • Ultralight hoodie for total sun protection on hot days of fishing
  • Capilene Cool Daily fabric wicks moisture and breathes well
  • UPF 50 sun protection lets you wait in the sun for your dream catch
  • Roomy hood was designed to fit over a baseball cap for total shade
  • Thumbhole loops offer coverage for the backs of your hands
  • Polygiene anti-odor technology fights the funk after long days
  • Item #PAT02TD

I've been wanting a hooded sun shirt for fly fishing for a while now and I finally pulled the trigger. This thing is amazing! It's jam-packed with awesome features. I love being able to throw the hood on while I'm on the water and not have to worry about the sun or bugs getting to my neck. It dries very quickly... I've taken it out on a few late night, chilly outings and it dried fast enough that I wasn't getting too cold. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who spends time out in the sun, or on the water.

This product is a great addition for anyone that breaks a sweat in the summertime. The button on the front of the hood is a nice look, and keeps the critters off my neck when fly fishing. Order the heather grey for no Pategonia billboard on your back.

This is a super lightweight hoody layer. I use it most to protect myself from the sun on sunny beach days, desert hike days, or camping trips. It is an easy and comfortable piece of gear to quickly toss on so you don't have to deal with sunscreen or any other sun maintenance. However, I am accustomed to tshirts for most of my activities and the lack of breeze over your skin really causes it to feel like a sauna sometimes. I would recommend it for low to medium activity in warm weather. Also think it would make a decent layer for spring ski touring when you need to cool off but don't want to bake in the sun.

Just ordered 2 more. Perfect for winter days inside, when you don’t want to wear a sweater. Hood material, when buttoned is VERY comfortable and WARM against your neck. My FAV out of multiple brands.

I love this base layer so much I bought one in every color! The fit is perfect, and the material is so comfortable you almost forget you even have a shirt on! I’ve worn this at 14,000+ feet on super bright days, and the UV protection seems to work wonderfully! Definitely recommended!

It's exactly what you expect. I have a 41" chest, and usually fall between a medium and a large. I got a large here, and it fits just a pinch loose: exactly as I expected and hoped. It's super soft, super comfy, and does everything it promises. I love it. I will say that most polyester smells after just a day, maybe two tops. I wore this for 8 days in a row while on the water (about 4-6 hours a day) during a recent river trip, and much to my surprise, it was never smelly. Sometimes, I would catch a whiff of a different and interesting smell, but it never got the terribly BO smell I usually accompany with Polyester. I would recommend this shirt to anyone. It's awesome!!!

IMO they have made improvements to both the fit and weight on this shirt in the 5 years since I last bought one. This is a perfect summer shirt to stay cool and avoid the sun.

I have a couple of Patagonia sun type hoodies .I like the fabric feel with this one the best. I am not a big logo fan and I don`t really like the giant fish /mountain Patagonia advert. on the back of the shirt.

Great fit, super comfy. Got the L, I’m 5’9 and athletic build. Great for the sun and evenings. Doesn’t hold odors either. Love the hood too I am super happy with it. My wife not so much- she got sick of all the ladies checking this guy out at the beach.

For weightless, cool, comfy protection from the sun, this is best 'sun shirt' I've ever owned. Kayaking on Maine rivers on hot summer days has been a pleasure this season. A medium fits perfectly for me (6'3", 155lbs. ) Please add NAVY or DEEP BLUE as a color choice. The colors are in the "Easter Egg Pastel" range and feel a bit loud for the back country. :-) The "feather gray" is pretty earthy but the "mako blue" kind of "candy" bright. I returned a "coral red" which read as more orange than red. The hood is also comfy and great to have at the ready when it's scorching hot.

I love these things. I have three now and wear them all summer in all kinds of weather. I will have to try it as a base in winter. I wish the hood had a different closure mechanism but I still love the versatile and SUN PROTECTION!

Have two of these, will certainly buy more, perfect shirts for summer mountaineering and alpine climbing. Keeps the sun off, dries super fast, and keeps the stink down when worn/sweat in for multiple days. Sure slightly warmer than going short/no sleeves but worth it not to burn. Very lightweight but holds up to at least moderate abuse on granite and while bushwacking. Hood almost fits over a BD vector helmet (you can jam it into the headlamp clips to really hold it), runs a bit baggy but probably not worth the size down.

I purchased this shirt for my husband to wear during the summer months as a contractor. He was looking for something that would be lightweight, protect from the sun yet still give a pulled-together appearance when meeting with homeowners. This shirt has become his hands-down favorite! The roomy fit and lightweight, quick-drying fabric make it exceptional on the job. I appreciate the anti-odor technology when he comes home from work. The downside is the hood tends to get in his way when doing roofing or tasks that require him to be bent over for long periods of time. He is also not a huge fan of the thumb hole sleeves. Overall though, he would recommend this shirt for anyone who is in the sun long periods of time. It is loose fit but he would not recommend going down a size.

I got 2 of these shirts for through hikes in the mountains this summer. After multiple uses and washes, they are still great at protecting from the sun, and dry incredibly quick. I live in Houston, which has about as much heat and humidity you could test these with. They also work great while floating the river, since they're so light weight. Even soaked, they won't weigh you down or cling annoyingly. Fit is a little roomy, but not enough to size down I don't think.

I bought two of these and love them. The UPF 50 protection is a plus and I the hood is nice to have when needed. Unlike a lot of other summer layers, this feels really light on the skin and doesn't trap heat. Now if Patagonia would make one in NAVY BLUE or DEEP BLUE I'd grab another one. (The "Spice Coral" is kind of an orange color and I'm not a big fan of it. The "Make Blue" is also kind of bright. I like more low-key colors.)

Bought this for a recent trip to Kauai. Ziplining, hiking, ATV'ing, beach trips and just being under the Hawaiian sun. This shirt is as advertised and more. Really liked how cool and breezy it felt in the heat. The hood is great and the thumb holes are clutch. I wouldnt hesitate to buy another color.

I'd prefer this style to that of the women's version. Have any women bought this product? Curious about fit/sizing.

What is the center back length on this? I’m tall (6’4”) and have a long torso and I’m struggling to find a sun hoody that’s long enough without being overly baggy. Thanks!

Do all of the color options have the large patagonia fish logo on the back?

Only the Fitz Roy Celadon and Fitz Roy Vjosa Green have that large fish logo on the back. All others have a plain back. Source: I emailed Patagonia and that's what they replied; also bought the Mako Blue which has a plain back.
