Great for everyday but retains body odor
I have several Capilene Cool Daily shirts (2 long-sleeves, 2 graphic tee, 1 solid tee) so I speak from a lot experience -- these are awesome shirts! It's almost a silky material and they feel great when you're out and about on the trail, biking or climbing at the gym/outside. However, there is a caveat! Unlike merino or another naturally ... Read Moreantibacterial material, they retain body odor (in my case, despite wearing deodorant). As much as I love these shirts, I don't usually wear them camping (or where I need to pack minimally) bc it's not always feasible to carry lots of extra shirts. In the future, I plan to invest in the Capilene Cool Merino.
Hi Melinda, thank you for submitting this review. The Cap Cool Daily fabric is engineered to not retain odor, as it has HeiQ® Pure odor control in the fabric. We're sorry your experience was different! If you decide you'd rather not use this shirt please feel free to start your [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time.
Versatile sun shirt for cool and warm weaather
As I spend a lot of time in the sun, I have a few other hooded sun shirts from other brands. I like this one for its versatility. Since the material feels and looks more like a knit, and the style is less "techy" than the others, I can wear this as a travel shirt and not look like I'm about to head out for a hike. :) Pros: +Stretch... Read Morey material feels cool in hot weather, and warm in cool weather. +The borealis green is a calming color and makes me happy. +Can wear it hiking and traveling, versatile style. +Most of my other Patagonia tops are XS and this one fits similarly well. I can wear this as a base or mid layer. Cons: -Hood feels a bit tight and constricting when I put it on over my ponytail. I have another hoody that has a ponytail hole, and the hood fits better and doesn't blow off as easily.
Runs tight through shoulders
The color (green) is gorgeous (more vibrant than online), but its tight through the shoulders if you have muscle/want to be able to move well. I have been a M in Patagonia for many years, but find some shirts increasingly cut narrow in the shoulders and need to size up. Liked it enough to pay shipping twice and get the L.
Love the feel
This is my 2nd Capilene Cool hoody from Patagonia and it is so comfortable and easy to move in. The hoody is great to keep the sun off my neck and have used it to keep swarming bugs off my head. I would like a little more room in the bust area for some of us larger gals but a larger size is too large. I love the shirts and happy with the fit.
Sun protection with comfort
This is my second capilene cool daily hoody because I wear them so often that I need two. The soft, light, buttery fabric is very comfortable and does not cause me to overheat. I wear this layer often when climbing and mountain biking. I prefer to not use sunscreen, so this hoody offers excellent skin protection. I love putting the hoody up over my... Read More helmet to protect my neck from the sun. A medium fits perfectly and I am 5'9" and 165 lbs; tall and curvy and the medium is perfect.
Ok fit but wish it was a tag longer and "fitted."
Similar to "women's" shirts by all outdoor retailers, this one falls into the category of baggy and not long enough. I'm not sure if outdoor companies still think women are 5'3-5'5 or what, but I find "womens" clothes to be too short and wide-this shirt is no different. While it is perfect in the arm length (... Read Morethank you!) if I raise my arms, this shirt is rising up. And its wide which makes the fit feel just a bit off. My husband has the same shirt just in mens and it fits perfectly. As women are getting taller, can outdoor retailers please offer more options for women? Tall/Long for instance like you do for petite? Other than that one issue, this was perfect for a longer hike in humid/buggy weather. It kept me dry and dried quickly when we returned to the AC.

Great light hoodie
My husband had 2 of these from last year and raved about them. On a bike ride it flowing in wind I was jealous, so excited to get one on sale. I got large as I have boobs and like the loose fit. Patagonia womens does not, unfortunately, fit to large chests- so the hips are large but like the loose fit on this. Wish it had the edging and thumb hole ... Read Morethey had last year- but still very happy with it
Great fabric, but the fit is not great. It has a tube shape that ends up being baggy around the waist and torso white being tight in the shoulders and bust. Would love a slightly more hourglass shape, and will likely alter it so the bagginess does not whip around in the wind or scrunch under a pack. Fabric is really nice- soft and thin- though I ...

Best Lightweight Sun Hoodie Ever
I LOVE this sun hoodie! It is light enough to wear on hot days. I wear it with a trucker hat and the hood up for long or short hikes so I barely need sunscreen. I wore this everyday on a 10 day hiking trip I was cooking for and when I arrived one of the guides had the same one, same color. He is outside all day everyday and he wore this sun hoodie ... Read Moreexclusively on that trip. I almost never pay full price for my gear and I am so happy I did with this piece!
Great Sun Shirt
I wear this shirt kayaking and hiking. It is very light weight, keeps the sun off me and keeps me cool in temperatures up to 90 degrees. The style is a little looser which I feel is much more comfortable than the form fitting styles that are popular now. I do wish they offered this in more colors.
Love this shirt for EVERYTHING
I have this in a size small and a medium. Both work for different uses. I use this mostly as a sun shirt but really its an essential piece that is perfect for anything. It can be an extra layer for a touch more warmth or to protect you from sun. It is super lightweight. I just wish there were more color options!
soft, cool, sun pro
Exactly what I hoped for! Got this for an Eastern Sierras summer hiking/biking/RV camping trip.

Love the hoody
I have both the green and yellow hoody. I love the green one but the yellow color gets so dirty, almost purplish color stains that do not always come out in the wash. I hike in them and with the green color I can wear multiple times and it doesn't show dirt or if it does, it easily rinses off. The yellow is a beautiful color but I regret not g...

Hi Kim, we're so bummed that the Jellyfish Yellow - Isla Yellow X-Dye Capilene is having some issues with staining. This may be a quality control issue and we'd be happy to help out with a [warranty return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) under our Ironclad Guarantee. We'll reach out to you privately in case you need further assistance.
I really like the hoody. It seems to be warm when needed but also cooling. I havent tested it but I believe it has UV protection. I like the fit which is long in the sleeves and torso. The only problem with this material is that you have to be careful of snags and pulls, so it might not be the best for gardening and other work.
Essential hot and sunny weather gear
I have 4 of these hoodies, they're the best lightweight top for early mornings on the bike, on a hike, or just kickin it on a Sunday.

Great sun shirt for fishing
I'm a big fan of this shirt. I wear it fly fishing, both as a stand-alone shirt and under waders. It fits well, wears well and is breathable enough that I forget I'm wearing a long sleeve. Does a great job keeping the sun off and I love the hood. It's true the hood is a little bit of a tighter fit than you might find on others, but I... Read More find that tighter fit helps it stay in place when winds get a little blustery. Love mine and will be ordering more.
Used to be a staple piece in my closet.
Really bummed. No button at neck, pockets, or thumb holes. Have purchased this one before so didn't even think twice before ordering a new one and wish I would have realized its been downgraded to the max. Would have just got the mens if I knew. Really disappointed
Great! Print seems to be a slightly different fabric
I love these hoodies. I wear them all the time. They fit true to size---I'm 5'4", 140 and a medium fits well. I have 2 of the plain colors, and just recently ordered the Monkey Flower: Light Current Blue, and I find that it's a slightly thicker / warmer fabric.

Nice but strangles me a bit
I love the color and the overall fit. Its maybe a little tighter than Id like since sunshirts are best when worn a bit baggy. But thats not too bad. But the bigger issue is that the neck is tight. With the hood up, I feel a little like Im choking. Probably only an issue if you have long hair you dont want tucked inside your sweaty hood though. When... Read More my braid is over my shoulder and the small hood is up, it strangles me a bit. I wish theyd make the neck opening and the hood just a little bigger! Maybe itll stretch with wear?

Hi Malia, we're so bummed to hear that the Patagonia Women's Capilene Cool Daily Hoody isn't working out for you. We want you to be comfortable in your gear and if you're not, feel free to begin a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
If you didnt have B or above bra size it would fit better. The bodice is straight up and down and is a bit tighter than Im used to. The sleeves are so long I have to roll them up twice.

I am slowly feeling my closet with all of these shirts and different colors. Please Patagonia make it in Black!!! It is the perfect hooded up top.

Fantastic product. Please make in black.
I own seven of these shirts from small to large. The small is slightly too snug when my weight fluctuates. The medium is flattering and more forgiving. The large is baggy.

I bought 2 in XS & one in M; the M was for my son in law, XS for my daughter and myself; all of us loved them! Nice on the boat, nice on the bike, nice casual! I wish the colors were updated a little bit, Patagonia is lacking in that department, unfortunatelyplease bring more updated colors
Thought Id try this shirt for hiking, running and for an upcoming trip to Hawaii it is amazingly soft! I cant wait to try it for running, now that its getting a little warmer here in New England! The fit seems to be true to size too (55, 108lbs- kinda thin, but my shoulders are a bit wide across, so sometimes have to size up)!
Im in Florida in March and its a little windy, then hot, then cold, then raining. Ive worn this hoodie every day for two weeks. The hood stays on my head. It keeps the sun off without heating me. Im cooler with it on as opposed to having the sun heat my skin. Add a layer when it gets cold and Im set.

This hoodie is a must have for hiking and running. The fabric is very light and definitely wicking.

I bought it as a gift for my daughter-in-law and it came in a little plastic bag which didnt look very nice for gifting. It was very thin and unimpressive.
We're sorry to hear that the product was a disappointment. This hoody is designed to be very lightweight for comfort in hot environments, providing some protection from the elements while wicking away perspiration during activities like hiking, stand up paddleboarding, and fishing.

Comfortable when Exerting
I like these shirts because even though the material is very light weight, it's quite warm. Also I particularly like the feel of the fabric against my skin. In addition I like having a lightweight hood which comes in handy when I need a little extra warmth, rather than putting on a jacket.
Please bring it back!
I understand this shirt was part of a voluntary recall due to a discrepancy in the sun protection, but I hope it will be brought back for sale just as it is with whatever changes need to be made for an accurate description.

Its just a lovely shirt that I reach for often. If theres another top made from the same exact material currently availableIll take 2 please!

Hmmm. I thought this was some type of cooling fabric. It doesnt feel like it breathes at all and seems warm. I was hoping to wear it for sun protection while boating and kayaking but now Im thinking it will be too warm. Its a beautiful color and I like the fit. Just might not be for summer heat.
Hey Katherine! We're stoked to let you know that our Capilene® Cool Daily fabric is great in all conditions.
