    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

    Highly recommended

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I highly recommend this shirt. Keeps you cool, blocks the sun, dries quickly, comfortable, looks good. I’ve worn it fishing, hiking, traveling, going to the beach, etc. it’s worth the money, is my go-to summer activity shirt.

    Highly recommended

    Cool and dry

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    • Weight: 195lbs

    I'm not a huge fan of big logos on my outdoorwear. I'll live with it for this performance. Quick drying and soft but solid sun protection, aided by the unobtrusive hoodie. As noted in other reviews, this will fit a bit baggy, but not obnoxiously so. Hoodie easily allows room for a hat to help keep even more of the sun off.

    Can't Get Enough

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My boyfriend has 3 of these shirts and wears them for every sport we do outside in the sun. Climbing, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, whatever you want! The Polygiene coating prevents odor causing bacteria from sticking to the material of the shirt, so you can wear this for a few days at a time without a wash and not get super stinky. The UV protection is bullet-proof, and the hood adds another layer of protection to your neck.



    Here's a picture of my boyfriend wearing it during a day of rock climbing in the sun! ( I am wearing the Black Diamond Alpenglow Hoody, another UPF shirt)

    Can't Get Enough

    Great Sun Shirt

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I'm 6'1" with a 39" chest (pretty lanky) and the Medium fits great - plenty of length in the arms and it's loose as you want a sun shirt but not overly baggy. I got the green one and it's a nice light green - good combination of light enough to reflect light but also not a pure white shirt.

    I tried on about 10 different sun shirts with the intent of using one for spring ski touring in the Sierras. There are lighter ones that probably breathe better like the Arcteryx Phasic and Mountain Hardwear Crater Lake, but the Arcteryx is very expensive (twice as much as the Tropic) and the MH was only available in a dark blue which didn't make sense to me for my intended purpose. In an ideal world, I would probably have preferred the MH if it came in a light color because it weighs half as much and is only $10 more.

    Other shirts I tried but ultimately passed on were BD Alpenglow ($85 and the nickel color was pretty dark. Very comfortable. M fit great.), Patagonia Sunshade (M fit great, not as comfy as tropic and $80), Prana Calder (super heavy - M fit great).

    For me, it came down to a combination of price, weight, and color. I wanted a light color and a lightish shirt that would breathe well. The BD and MH were leading contenders on fit and weight but were passed on due to the dark color and price difference. Ultimately, I couldn't justify paying more for a shirt that was darker, so I went with the Tropic. I've used it on several tours and it works great. It is incredibly comfortable (maybe the most comfortable one I tried on) so I was tempted to keep it even as a more casual summer shirt.

    Capilene Cool is very cool!

    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    Loving this new top. I've purchased a couple for work in the garden and long days in the sun. I just went camping this weekend and snagged a photo of my boyfriend in his top. He is the biggest fan. I need to buy more! This top definitely protected him from sun burns and he didn't even sweat in it! Kept him cool the entire time.

    Capilene Cool is very cool!

    Love this thing

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    So I got this about a week ago and haven't taken it off for starters. It's super lightweight and soft. Makes for a great addition to your gear closet if you are looking for something to hike, climb, or fish in.

    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.
