Tropic Comfort Hooded Shirt

Sun protection doesn't have to involve endless bottles of sun block or a stuffy and uncomfortable sun shirt, at least not with the Patagonia Tropic Comfort Hooded Shirt. This ultralight option gives you reliable UPF 50+ protection from strong summer rays, but keeps it cool and comfortable in the heat thanks to the new Capilene Cool Daily technology. Capilene Cool was developed to build on the already breathable and moisture-wicking performance of Patagonia's Capilene baselayers, with an updated construction that thrives in hot weather.

You'll stay drier and cooler than ever before, while the thumb hole loops and adjustable hood keep you covered from your hands to your head. The hood fits snugly over a baseball hat and cinches in tightly while you fish or hike, and the thumb holes offer coverage to keep the back of your hand protected too. There's even a small zippered pocket in the rear to keep small gear and essential items safely tucked away, so whether you're climbing into the car or reaching for a new fly, you won't have to worry that you dropped it somewhere on the trail.

  • Ultralight sun hoodie for protection and comfort on hot days
  • Capilene Cool fabric offers high breathability and effective wicking
  • UPF 50+ sun protection keeps your skin protected in exposed terrain
  • Adjustable hood was designed to fit snugly over a baseball cap
  • Thumbholes provide added coverage for the backs of your hands
  • Rear zippered pocket keeps small items from falling in the river
  • Polygiene anti-odor technology keeps it fresh after activity
  • Item #PAT02Q6

Good desert sun protection

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size
Size Bought
M
Height
5` 10"

I have very fair skin and have recently come to appreciate the ease of sun shirts instead of slathering on goopy, oily, annoying sunblock. This shirt is soft and light, the hood is large and provides plenty of extra movement when pulled up under or over a hat. The blue color is flattering. I have another in the white/grey but the baseball tee style isn’t as flattering as the blue. The shirt does not prevent odors however, so using the same shirt multiple days in the desert might get “funky”. Overall I’m a fan and ended up ordering another after my first order arrived. I am tall and the thumbholes don’t work for me due to the sleeves not being long enough. But I personally don’t care for thumbholes and end up scrunching up the sleeves anyway.

Great fit and feel

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The feel of this fabric and fitted yet relaxed cut of this shirt are spot on. Bought this shirt for a fishing trip. Very excited to try it out.

Sun Protection without the Stickiness

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this shirt at the beginning of the summer, and I wore the heck out of it. It's still in perfect condition. It's way easier than slathering up in a metric ton of sunscreen. I bought a small, and maybe could have sized down, but I didn't want it sticking to me, so it's worked out fine. I live in really hot, humid area, and if I wasn't actively moving (biking), I would get hot quickly. It sheds heat well, but humidity is a killer.

Amanda, it’s really humid where I am too. Are you saying that you don’t like wearing it in humidity?

Comfortable and useful

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a well made, comfortable, and functional top. It's light weight, and I've been able to comfortably wear it in the CO 80s. I needed something that could provide sun protection that wouldn't also cause me to over-heat, and this fits the bill. I'm a Medium 99% of the time, and this is true to size, if only a little small/form fitting. The sleeve and body length fit me perfectly, which is unusual- at 5'5" tops are sometimes a little long on me (particularly sleeves), so if you are tall, you may need to size up. I bought the white/grey, and I love the baseball style color/look. I always layer it over another top, but I haven't found it to be particularly see through. There is a strangely placed pocket on the middle side back, which I use rarely, but has worked fine when I needed to stash my keys. Also, so far so good on the anti-stink front... I haven't found it holding onto odors.

Desert worthy!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I bought this for a desert hiking trip and it nailed it! It was 95 degrees without any shade and this shirt kept me cool enough that I didn't overheat or get sunburned. The sleeves could've been a hair longer to tuck my thumb in but it did a great job at protecting the backs of my hands. LOVE IT!
