I love it. Soft fabric and very comfortable.fits great

November 13, 2023

Super comfortable & light weight

I absolutely love the fit. It is true to size & it is so comfortable. I love it so much that I bought every color!

November 1, 2023

Dry fit excellence!

By far my favorite dry fit style long sleeve Ive ever had. Ive had all sorts of brands and styles of dry fit hoodies and these are unmatched. Light as air, moisture wicking, comfortable and perfect for long days in the sun on the water.

October 21, 2023

So comfortable!

I have been wearing this a lot since I purchased it; it might be my new favorite layer. It is very comfortable and perfect for a variety of spring-fall temperatures. I bought the size I usually buy for Patagonia slim fit (which is often a size up) in order to have it a bit oversized to easily layer underneath. Love it for hiking, walking the dog, c...

September 25, 2023

comfortable and light

I wore this top in temps of 50 to 80, both hiking and lounging. It gave enough warmth at sitting still at lower temps but didn't get too hot during hikes; sweat dried quickly and it washed well. I'm looking forward to wearing this a long time.

September 19, 2023

Lovely river paddling fabric

This is the closest I can get to high-performance silk! It feels cool and clean to the touch, allowing my irritable skin to breathe on long river days with exceptional UV protection for the arms and chest. However, I wish it came in more light heathered colors* like the men's version to camouflage stains while I'm guiding. The tannins an...

Patagonia Women's Capilene® Cool Daily Hoody

I like this cool daily hoody. Only one suggestion: the neckline is too tight, needs more attention when put on and get off, which I never have such experience re other Patagonia products before.

September 11, 2023

Cool Hoddy

Second one I bought! So comfortable never wrinkled I need sun protection so this is perfect for me! Love the feel! Wash and dry!

September 9, 2023

Comfortable & lightweight

I purchased this hoodie (& matching t-shirt) for hiking on the Inca Trail. I was advised to dress in layers. I needed something that will be lightweight, dry quickly, and not retain odor since we are very limited in what we can pack on this tour. Capilene is not supposed to retain odors and meets the other criteria I desired. I usually wear a s... Read Moreize 10 or medium; I got this in a large for layering and the fit is perfect for me.

September 7, 2023

Nice material, could use some tweaking

I love how the Capilene Cool Daily material feels, and how it blocks the sun and wicks away sweat. I wish every garment was made of this fabric. I don't love that this top is loose-fitting even though I sized down, everywhere except the arms and armpits which start to chafe a bit with activity. I guess due to the combination of smaller arm ho... Read Moreles and standard overlocked seams, you know the ones that stick out like a quarter-inch on every cheaply-made garment. To be fair, I have broad shoulders and thicker arms. I probably should've gotten a medium but I prefer compression-style baselayers and I knew this was loose-fitting as well as a bit stretchy. I tried the men's version of this top also, the small feels great to wear as a light layer though it's fairly loose-fitting on me. Patagonia, please consider using flat-locked seams and a more "athletic" fit for your active wear!

September 6, 2023

Great shirt

Love the fit and the color

Capilene Cool Daily Hoddy

This is the 2nd one for me. I loved the one I got from a friend and loved it so much had to get a 2nd one! So comfy, light and never wrinkles!! Love them so much!

September 5, 2023

Organic essential dress

Comfy, loose fitting and warm. Great for fall and cooler weather

Love this Hoodie; my second

Love this Hoodie; my second one...

Terrific hoody for desert hiking

This hoody has great sun protection, yet doesn't make you feel too warm. Great for hiking, and also everyday.

September 4, 2023

Lightweight hoody

Love it! The PNW just started to get wet again and I love this keeping me warm…

September 2, 2023

perfect sun protection

I now have two of these, they are super lightweight so you don't get too hot and great to keep the sun off my shoulders as well as neck when I use the hood. Work great for hiking and on the river.

September 2, 2023

My favorite!

Same thing great garment !

September 2, 2023

So soft

Buttery soft and so comfortable.

August 31, 2023

Slink pinky

Soft. Lightweight. Luxurious. Nice length. Perfect fit. Hope it stays just like this, forever.

August 30, 2023

Cool Hoodie

Love it ! Perfect fit . Nice lightweight material for fall.

Capilene Cool Daily Hoody

Beautiful color. Great fit and soft, sturdy feel.

Capilene Hoody

Comfortable, light and beautiful colors.

August 29, 2023

Great as a rash guard

I use this instead of a rash guard. It dries so fast and keeps the sun off of me at the lake. Very cool too on hot days. Love it!

August 28, 2023

Does what it says!

I love these shirts. It almost feels like you aren't wearing any clothes, and the sun protection is great. A Medium fits me nicely but loosely for proper air flow and cooling. I don't think the allegedly antibacterial stink protection works that well, but I might just be extra smelly... Not a dealbreaker by any means!

August 26, 2023

Nice light layer for sun

Nice light layer for sun protection. Wish it was a bit longer

August 25, 2023

Perfect sun shirt

Fits perfectly, color is lovely, fabric is silky feeling, protects from sun and also keeps you cool.

August 25, 2023

The best sun protective shirt

The best sun protective shirt I’ve found so far.

August 24, 2023

Light, great coverage, doesn't snag!

I've had the capilene daily cool hoody for a year now so I wanted to share my review after using it in different conditions - glacier mountaineering, backpacking, hiking, scrambling and sport climbing outside. It feels really light on and offers great coverage when hot/sunny out or when there's a lot of reflection from snow. I got an S (5... Read More'6", 120lbs, 34" bust) which fits a bit loose, but I don't want something like this hugging me when it's so hot out anyway. Big pro: didn't snag while scrambling or rock climbing on granite (haven't tested with other types of rock - pretty sure nothing will survive limestone) and didn't pill/snag with a 30lb backpack on Slight con: at the beginning, I used to be able to wear it many days in a row without it smelling. Now, I definitely have to wash after a long day out as it smells too musky. Regardless, I recommend it to everyone I meet and bought one for my dad, brother and friend!

August 24, 2023

All i expect

Nice style, color, material. A tad long just because I am petite (5 ft).

August 24, 2023

Capilene Hoody

I love this hoody. My other capilene tops have been crew neck. For the fall I love the hoody cause it helps to keep my neck warm.

August 23, 2023

Great Lightweight Sun Protection

These are the greatest shirts. Lightweight, easy to wear. They are my summer uniform for mountain adventures. They keep me cool and protected even on scorching hot days with no trees around. The hood is exactly the right size to pull up and ov it my hat. It stays up but still allows air circulation around my neck. My only change would be to make th... Read Moreese shirts (of which I own 5) a little longer. I have a long torso and another inch would improve the fit for me, especially on a bike.

August 22, 2023

Best sun hoody

Perfect for full coverage in the sun, and also a good light base layer. Very versatile and a favorite.

August 22, 2023

great sun shirt

I would size up though if you don't want it to be snug

August 22, 2023

Perfect hoodie

This is soft and lightweight, great for warmer weather to stay covered. The neckline is great, nice crew neck fit so your neck is not exposed.

August 21, 2023

Best hoody for backpacking

I just returned from a 100 mile, 8-day backpacking trip in the high Sierra wearing this hoody everyday. It held up beautifully: drying overnight or after rain, not stinky until day 4 out of 8 (then stinky even though I rinsed it in snowmelt streams), felt very soft even though my skin was sticky from sweat, and the fabric protected me from sun expo... Read Moresure. Wearing this hoody meant that I didn't need to use sunblock on my upper body, which is a plus when you are trekking for days without a shower. I also felt cool on hot sunny days. It is my new go-to for hiking and backpacking. 5 stars! I'm 5'6" and 132 pounds. Size small is perfect.

August 20, 2023

Great Hoody for Boat

Love the color, fit and fabric. I wear this on the boat, when the sun is everywhere. I forget I have it on, and it keeps the sun off me. I wear it both with and without the hood on, normally over my swimsuit. It is soft, and fits a bit loose, as expected and desired.

August 20, 2023

One of my “go to” play shirts

I live these hoodies! Light weight, breathable and wicking sun shields easy to slip on for biking, hiking and beach time when you’ve had enough of the sun. I have two, and use them practically everyday in the summer months. More bright colors would be nice….

August 10, 2023

Nearly Zero Sun Protection

Since this hoody 'replaced' the sunshade hoody, thought that the design would be factored in, alas although the fit is true to size, material very soft and easy wearing, its the lack of hood and no elastic to hold it on that disappoints a bit. no thumb loops also cause shirt to come up arms when reaching out or stretching. The sunshade al... Read Moreso had thicker material, that still breathed really well in heat and slightly insulated, especially as a base layer. I have about a dozen of them and wear them to work, on the river, climbing, mtn biking, running, on the motorbike, casually, they are so great! Thought this hoody would come close, but its breathable over durable by a very long ways. This suits the casual wearer, but from my experience, not any serious exploring or serious use. Again, it fits well and is comfortable, just not suiting current needs, cheers

August 7, 2023

The Perfect Summer Shirt

This is my new summer favorite, both in the long sleeve and short sleeve. Perfect fit, lightweight fabric and cool in the heat when active. The fabric feels better than silk and keeps you cool. Dries in a minute. More colors, please!

August 6, 2023

Perfect minus one feature

With thumb holes or slightly longer sleeves, this would be the perfect sun hoodie of all sun hoodies. It is cool, comfortable, durable, and the hood stays on in wind, but it does not protect the backs of my hands, so sadly I wont buy a second one. Maybe a future model with thumb loops though!

Response from Patagonia
August 8, 2023

Thank you for sharing this review, Maria. If you prefer a hoody with thumbholes you might like the [Tropic Comfort Natural UPF Hoody](, which does feature back-of-the-hand protection. Please let us know if we can help you exchange this hoody for a different style!

August 6, 2023

Please, I'm begging you: different colors

I love everything about this hoody (the texture, the cut, the sun protection) except the colors and designs. I would buy 10 of these if only they were sold in colors I could live with. Of the ones currently available, I can stomach the blue and the gray. Why no black, charcoal gray, navy blue, dark blue (the staples)? Yes, the graphic hoodies have ... Read Moresome different color options, but I don't like being a walking billboard, and I don't like the graphic designs. Some of them are just really bad designs, and some of them clash horribly in terms of the colors in the design v. the background colors. I check back on the website every month or so to see if there are new colors and if they are any better than the old ones. Please. Please. Please. If you make these in solid colors that are not eyesores, I will buy them.

Response from Patagonia
August 8, 2023

Hey Dana, thanks for providing us with this feedback. We typically release new colors for our Fall and Spring seasonal releases. They are centered around a color story that our design team works on a couple years in advance, we're sorry to hear that they are not your favorite. It looks like we have already released our colors for Fall for this product, but we encourage you to check back in the Spring. You'll frequently find darker colors in our pieces geared towards colder weather, such as the [Women's Capilene Air Hoody](

August 5, 2023

Love the material and fit

My go-to long sleeve for playing outside in the sun. Perfect for an active life as a mom. Versatile, quick dry and comfortable. Great fit and material.

July 22, 2023

The best!

Love this. So soft on the skin & the fit is flattering. I immediately wanted to order another one. Pricey compared to others on the market but the softness and fabric is far superior!

July 9, 2023

Really comfy!

Very comfortable, not too clingy, washes up nicely. Bought 2 more! Relaxed fit, but runs small, had to size up.

June 26, 2023

New favorite top

I would wear this everyday if I could. The protection from the sun is great for everyday wear and hiking. I will be buying more!

June 24, 2023

Lightweight Coverage

I have this top on 4 colors as it is my go to layer in the summer to keep the sun off my upper body. I absolutely love that with this top I do not have to worry as much about sunscreen. It doesn't ride up during activity including mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, rafting, kayaking and much more!

June 17, 2023

Perfect, with a little advice

First of all, let me say that I love these shirts and have purchased four in different colors. They are silky smooth and a dream to wear. I don't actually need the hood. I used to buy the regular Cool Daily shirts, but I prefer the higher neckline of the hoody. However, I have two caveats which I think are worth mentioning for people consider... Read Moreing buying one. 1. A solid pale color (like Jellyfish Yellow - no longer offered) is extremely unforgiving and will show every bump (think headlights), and roll of fat. This is not an issue with the heathers and solid colors with patterns. 2. I've also made the sad discovery that I can't wear a small watch with a traditional stem when I'm wearing this shirt. I couldn't figure out how the hem stitching of a sleeve had come undone on one shirt until I noticed the same thing about to happen on another shirt. Same side, same spot, where the watch stem must be snagging the unprotected stitching. So now I'm on the hunt for a new stemless watch, that's how much I love this shirt!

May 18, 2023

Long and fits loose

I love this hoodie and have one that I bought 3 years ago. The new ones however fit large and are really long for short people. Please make petite sizes. This is my favorite spf hoodie and I really wish I could get more but the loose and long fit just doesn't work

Thanks for your review, Jovita!

Soft but too small

This is the best sunshirt I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. It is SO lightweight, comfortable and breathable. I wore it in 100 degree weather in Costa Rica and didn't feel like I was roasting.

Four months in.....

This hoody was a birthday gift to me, back in November, '22. I absolutely love it; it fits well and is both warm and cool. Great for layering. Just this morning, however, I noticed one of the seams blowing out.

Yes, I can fix it, but since I'm not particularly hard on my clothes (I won't even wear this hoody climbing yet; gotta wait until it's a tad older), I can only assume that the sewing of manufactured wear is getting shoddier and shoddier (even with fair-trade workers). I'm so tired of having to sew up my barely-worn tech clothing.

I love this hoody and wear it as much as possible, in cols windy, hot, sunny, stormy weather. I absolve the color of the gray !!

March 23, 2023

Flattering fit & cheery color

I was pleasantly surprised by the silky soft and well-fitting garment this is! It looks great -- not too tight or loose, and is very functional. It's a great wardrobe piece to protect from sun, to provide lightweight coverage, and it looks great! I love it and have already ordered another one.

Top tier

Great material. Performs really well. Color is spot on. Does not have thumb holes.

March 17, 2023

Everywhere all the time

This is the exact layer I was looking to wear in warmer weather. It will fit in a pack when you just need a light layer in the morning but don't want to drag a bulky fleece around when it warms up. I can see myself wearing this all the time, whether I'm running or just hanging out.

March 11, 2023

This sweatshirt is the best.

I stay just warm enough or just cool enough with this piece.

March 7, 2023

Great Summer sun shirt. I

Great Summer sun shirt. I had one from UNder Armour, but they discontinued them. These are looser fitting than UA. I wish they are slightly more form fitting. Must have for summer if you love outdoors but dont want your skin to look like wrinkled orange peel when you get older.

March 4, 2023

Casual cool

I bought this for sun protection while fishing. However, I haven't had a chance to use it for that yet. I love it for casual everyday and I wear it to work. It looks nice and is super soft and comfortable.

Great for outdoor sun coverage

This is a great, light weight top that provides super sun protection for the shoulder seasons where long sleeves are a must. As always, Patagonia makes a great product.

Response from Patagonia
March 8, 2023

Thank you for your review, Nancy. We're very sorry to hear that this shirt is causing sweat and does not wick moisture while wearing. The hoody was designed to be quick-drying and provide comfort in a variety of conditions; our apologies that hasn't been the case for you thus far. The center front length varies depending on size, but ranges from 21"-24.5". If you need measurements in the future, please reach out to our customer service team. We recommend checking out the [Women's Tropic Comfort Natural Hoody]( as a potential alternative. The center front length is slightly longer and it was designed to be breathable and provide UPF protection in hot and sunny conditions.

This is one of my favs from Patagonia. I have two if them, and I use it for hiking, running, and casual wear. Its light and breathable. Fabric is so soft. Will continue to buy these if they dont change the product design.

A Hit!

I love this hoody so much that I bought another in a different color. It fits perfectly--not baggy, not tight, and it washes beautifully. I wear it mostly for casual wear, but also for fitness classes. A friend liked it so much that I went back to the store and got her one as well!

February 10, 2023

Super comfy

This shirt is so comfortable, definitely purchase another color soon.

February 10, 2023

Good warmth from a thin layer

It's winter and I tire of constricting heavy clothing. This flowy soft layer is warm and works well under another layer. The hood fits nicely under my bike helmet.

Perfect fit

The XXL fit me (adult female athletic 5-7) perfectly (better than the size small women version that I returned). It's very lightweight and feels breathable. I will wear it a lot.

Best sun shirt on the market

I have tried many sun shirts from many brands, and this is my favorite one hands down. It keeps you cool, wicks away the moisture and keeps you protected from the sun. It's my go to for hiking.

So good

Really is worth all the 5 stars

I love this shirt. It's super comfortable, keeps the sun off, & doesn't stink at the end of 9-hour day in the sun. I'm 5'5, 145 lbs and the medium fits perfect.

My favorite top

Light weight, good fit, works well keeping the sun off without becoming too hot.

November 18, 2022

Great Hoody!

I bought two of these hoodies for an upcoming trip where I will want sun protection. The hoodies washed well, hang-dried quickly and are very comfortable; the fabric is exceptionally silky and smooth. I would definitely recommend these to anyone!

November 16, 2022

Nice light top

This top is very lightweight and good for blocking the sun while being in the outdoors but also cute enough to wear when not exercising. I bought the cream color and really like it

November 15, 2022


From the picture I thought it was going to be thicker. However, I didn't read the info and just bought it. It's pretty light weight and a great blue color.

Super comfortable

This top is lightweight and super comfortable. Also the fit is flattering.

Perfect material and design

This hoodie is phenomenal. I've been wearing it constantly since I got it, it works for such a wide range of temperatures and activities that I default to it for almost anything. Really love the fabric and the fit.

October 8, 2022

Get one - you will love it!

One of my favorite Patagonia tops - very versatile and comfy. I mainly wear it for casual wear and work, however hope to try it out for hiking real soon! Get one (or two)!

October 7, 2022

My husband complimented it.

I bought this shirt in two colors. I like the fit and feel of the fabric. My husband rarely notices new clothes when I wear them but he said is that a new shirt? I said yes and he said it looks really nice. I was pleasantly surprised.

October 1, 2022

Perfect for hiking in hot climates!!

Love the Cool Daily Hoody for hot day hikes. Saves my waxen skin from certain burns and great for layering (if you size up like me). Will likely add this top in another color to my collection!

September 28, 2022

Lightweight Layer, Ideal for Sun Protection

I love this layer while hiking and the hood comes in super handy if I can't get out of the sun and need some extra protection. It's comfortable and great for travel too!

September 26, 2022

Super lightweight and a great fit

This hoodie is a perfect shirt for the seasonal transition when you need something just a bit warmer than short sleeves or just need a sun cover up.

September 23, 2022

so light weight

This is very comfortable and adds a very lightweight layer of warmth or sun protection. I had to exchange for a larger size as it was too fitted through the middle. Happy with the larger size.

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.

September 16, 2022

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.

Soft, comfortable, perfect thin long sleeve shirt

This long sleeve shirt with a hood is perfect for the fall and spring. It is soft and comfortable. I would like to buy it in other colors too.

September 15, 2022


No complaints here. I love this shirt. It has saved me from so many sunburns. When it wears out, I will pick up another!

September 15, 2022

Awesome for hiking

If you're looking to minimize the amount of sunblock you have to wear while you're hiking this is the top for you! No need to reapply and you skip having to put all those chemicals on your skin.

Great fit and comfort

I love this top. Great for all sports if you sweat dries off quickly get a chill the hoodie is a plus. Strongly recommend this product. Love the colors

September 14, 2022

Super comfy and cute!

Love this new shirt in my line up! It is super comfy, light weight, and cute. I have the green color. I got it for some extra sun protection after a move to central CA this summer. I wear it to work (teaching), to the beach, and just around town.

September 11, 2022

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.

September 9, 2022

Really nice sun shirt

I ordered a Large because reviews said it ran small. I had to return the Large and get a Medium which was the right size for me 5'8" 135lbs. The quality of the fabric is nicer than any sun shirt I've had before. Very happy with this purchase.

September 9, 2022

Keeps me cool

I have 4 capilene cool daily shirts. One sleeveless, one short sleeve and two of the hoodies. I love them all! Though the hood is not tight it s good under a hiking hat if you need to keep you neck protected from the sun. I also love them for layering.

September 9, 2022

Keeps you COOL!

I have two of these. Love the colors and the graphics. Mostly I love how cool they keep me. If you're between sizes. I'd size up. Great for walking, hiking, biking, and cutting my grass!

Great performance!

Super happy with the wicking properties of this comfortable piece. Perfect for cool Vermont mornings top layer, lending itself to small baggage when off. Recommend!

September 7, 2022

Lightweight layer

I got this in S not XS like the short sleeve similar shirt. Glad I did. It could be a tiny bit longer and I would like that more. But its a nice shirt I go to often in many types of weather. I like it alone or over a tank for working out.

September 6, 2022

A good fit!

I love that it is light and cooling! It looks great on the trail and as a quick piece for a casual day. It does run true to size (mine being an XL) and if you are big chested (40DD), it fits nicely without it being tight. :)

September 6, 2022

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

September 6, 2022

Keeps me cool, and warm sometimes too

This works really well as a first layer in cold weather, and as the only layer in hot sunny weather so I can skip the sunblock. I like a looser fit, so a large helps keep my hands warmer in winter. I must have this in at least 5 colors by now!

September 5, 2022

Awesome shirt . Its my

Awesome shirt . Its my 2nd one . My daughter bought me one last year and I bought one this year . Its perfect for sun protection , lightweight, great bug protection, perfect for summer hiking, paddling, yoga, biking . Can you tell I wear it all the time!!

Very Comfortable

I absolutely love these shirts! I have four of them and wear them on a regular rotation.

September 4, 2022

Weird fit

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!

August 21, 2022

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.

August 18, 2022

Love these tops!!!

The fit and feel is amazing.. cooling on humid warm days and nice weight for insulation under a fleece. They offer sun and some bug protection too. I now own several styles and colors!!!

August 18, 2022

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!

August 7, 2022

easy to wear sun protection

This is my second capilene cool daily hoody. I bought another one after I wore it nearly every day of a recent trip to the Grand Canyon. It's comfortable, wicks water, offers sun protection, and is easy to wear. An easy favorite for me.

August 4, 2022

Love it!

I love the material and the way it fits. It keeps you cool in the summer and adds warmth in the winter/fall. This is truly a four season item. I love this so much, I now have 5 in different colors. Wish there were more colors to choose from.

August 4, 2022


Wore it the first time when I went kayaking, then on a hike.... so lightweight and comfortable and protected me from the sun.

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.

mosquitoes be damned

My son works the backcountry and this shirt is his uniform so I got one. Light weight and breathable and covers you up so the mosquitoes and blazing sun doesn't ruin your day.

July 27, 2022

Great light weight shirt

Happy with this shirt. Great for hiking and biking, stayed cool and felt protected from the sun. Only complaint is Patagonia got rid of the thumb holes..!

A perfect layer for both

A perfect layer for both warm and cool days. Light and very comfortable!

Cant have just one!

These are one of the best things Patagonia makes. I have the t-shirt version as well in multiples colors. They do run a bit small.

July 16, 2022

Soft material

Material is soft and has works well fly fishing ( dries quickly) but I find myself casually wearing this around. Comfortable. The neck/ opening is small but not bothersome.

July 15, 2022


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

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...

Very cool

Love my rosehip cool shirt! Like the hood to keep my neck from getting burnt. Shirt is breathable on warm days! Great product. Im 5ft 11in and 165 pounds and got the L because I wanted it roomy.

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

June 29, 2022

What I love the most

What I love the most about this top is how cool it is even on hot weather, quick dry the hood comes handy when is a bit windy, fabric is ultralight.

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.
