Capilene at it's best in hoody form

If you love the Capilene t-shirts or long sleeve shirts than you will love this hoody. Light, airy, quick drying, with a relaxed fit but now with a hood. I usually wear this around the house, as a baselayer, or at the beach when it sunny but windy out. I am 5'5" 140lbs and like the other Capilene pieces I take a size Small.

October 3, 2023

Super comfy year round gear

One of my favorite new shirts that I own. I wish they had more colors as I'd wear them all.

September 29, 2023

Favorite lightweight hoody

I have bought three now. One retail, which I lost. I was so sad I went online to buy more. Great for travel. Love it.

September 28, 2023

Useful but limited opportunity to use

Really helps to save you from the sun but at the same time , it is such a thin breathable layer that I don’t think I will carry my hiking bag with it as it may wear it out. Yet , wearing it for one of those long hiking days is what I may want to use it for

September 11, 2023

awesome sun protection, super soft material!

Love this item for working, sun protection, surf, and super comfortable. great fit, love the simplicity...

September 11, 2023

Best solution for sun protection while running

I wear this on hot, sunny days. With the hood under a regular baseball hat, I'm almost completely protected from the sun. It's the best way I've found to protect my neck while running. I thought that wearing long sleeves and a hood would be super hot, but it's not really. The fabric breathes well and keeps the direct sun off ski... Read Moren.

Perfect for Cooler Nights or Protection from the Sun

It's so soft and is perfect for cooler nights or protection from the sun. Very lightweight and comfortable.

September 4, 2023

Sun Protection

It helps me to handle working in the hot sun by protecting me from rays.

September 3, 2023

Great and cool

I wanted a sun shirt, and this does exactly that. Hood is a little short so the face is a bit more exposed than I would like, but the shirt itself is super soft and keeps cooler than a short sleeve T-shirt IMO.

September 2, 2023

Best sun hoodie out there

Can’t be beat

September 1, 2023

Perfect for cool temps and activity

Perfect weight for cool mornings and evenings. Material allows for easy and non-cling movement.

August 31, 2023

Very cool product…loving it!

Title says it all :)

August 31, 2023


This is a excellent product, very functional in very warm and sunny conditions.

August 30, 2023

Breathable, Lightweight and comfortable

Excellent shirt for those warm, sunny days when you need to stay cool and reduce sun exposure. Next to my waders this is the most important item I wear during my Summer Steelhead season.

August 30, 2023

Good quality

I really like the quality of this shirt. Kept me cool on grueling hikes under the sun. Also, it wicks sweat well.

August 28, 2023


I just love the store. Great stuff, earth focus. Superior service, long lasting.

August 27, 2023

This Hoody rocks!

Looks great, fits well, and does a great job of wicking!

This hoodie is comfortable and is a great base layer for summer or fall adventures.

Super light and cool

Very comfortable and not restrictive . I wear it to play tennis or out to dinner. Great colors!

August 23, 2023

Super soft

I love the feel of the material. It is lightweight so it can be worn almost any time of year.

August 23, 2023

Perfect for hot days

Such a great light-weight hoody with the benefit of protecting against that accursed sun. Love it, will never give it up.

August 20, 2023

So cool

I love the Capilene shirts . They are very soft and cooling to wear. They do not cling!!

August 1, 2023


Great for sun protection without feeling overheated.

July 31, 2023

Lightweight but delicate and pricey

This is the first hoodie I bought from Patagonia. I love the feeling when I tried it. It was so soft, light as if I'm not wearing any. Because of this, it is very delicate that it can easily be torn. Also, I think it's overpriced.

July 24, 2023

Cool Comfort

Perfect hoody to throw on after a long day at the beach or works has a perfect rash guard while at the beach or lake fishing, paddling, etc.

July 23, 2023

Perfect for long days in the sun

The long sleeves, the hood and the weight of the material made this shirt perfect for a couple consecutive long days in the sun on a recent camping/hiking/fishing trip. The material has a feeling that makes you think its been cooled somehow.

July 17, 2023

A must have sun shirt

10/10 sun and water shirt. Just spent 5 days at the beach and threw this on once it started getting real hot. It kept me sun burn free and was comfortable wearing wet.

June 23, 2023

Every day desert gear

Wear one literally every day here in the Sonoran desert - bike the nino to daycare, bike commute to work, go for a run (need a hat on top of the hood to keep it on running, or a helmet over the hood for biking), hikes in mountains or desert. These are great, not really stinky after a few years of really heavy use for mine (have 5!). The neck prot...

Does what it does, and quite well

I use this regularly for most outdoor activities on sunny days. From Surf days at the beach to Ultimate frisbee, to just working in the yard. I love how it protects me from the sun, while keeping me cool with it's breathable and super light weight material. It also packs down really well if you need to store it in a pack or fanny pack. 10/10 w... Read Moreould recommend to anyone

Great for Travel

Great to have on hand for traveling to different climates.

April 26, 2023

Bring back the button!

These are great for fishing in the sun. The old ones used to have a button at the base of the neck. It made a huge difference keeping the hood up while driving in a boat or in a wind. Bring back the button!

My KiteSurfing/Snorkeling/Hiking/Dinner Shirt

Just purchased these in the long/short slv version to replace my old school Patagonia silk weight tops. The silkweight Patagonia tops still going strong, but needed a new color in my life. Was hoping this new version would be as good, and boy were they ever. Spent 2 weeks in Roatan living in them. They do everything and give you wide range of optio... Read Morens with one shirt. From 6 hours swimming in ocean they are amazing sunshine protection. They dry fast, offer post adventure warmth, and are a snappy option for dinner. They officially are in my travel bag.In my 54y of remote nook and cranny travel throughout this glorious world, I have never purchased a Patagonia item I didnt love. Each are made with exceptional care, hung together admiringly to its last breath, and remained unwaveringly guaranteed. Thank you Patagonia. ANOTHER HOME RUN!

March 6, 2023

Great shirt

Everyday I run in it

March 4, 2023

Fun in the Sun

Finally got to use this for a nice little hike. It is thin and breathable and the hood is nice to protect my neck from the sun. Definitely recommend this for warm sunny weather.

March 4, 2023

Sun protection

Have not used much yet still winter in South Dakota but the fit and quality are first rate looking forward to using when in warms up.

Fits true to size. Very comfortable fabric. Breathes very well and keeps the Sun off of me!

Nice and thin, would recommend to chill in. A little tight in the chest but thats because i have broader shoulders, overall length is greats

Most comfortable base layer or SPF shirt

Most comfortable SPF or base layer I have, this is my second hooded version and I have several long sleeve (no hood) that I wear year round now. The material is super soft and layers well. Always look forward to wearing these shirts, cheers!

December 2, 2022

Everything promised was delivered

It's surprisingly warm for it's weight, very wick, and fits well. Really happy with my purchase.

November 28, 2022

Just what I was looking for

Was looking for a soft, thin, long sleeve hoodie to wear while fishing and hiking. This was the perfect item. Very pleased. Runs a tad bit small as does most Patagonia products. But Im a 46 regular chest size, so keep that in mind.

November 28, 2022

Comfortable, cool, and protective

Great balance between sun protection, good fit, and comfort

Sun Hoody

Love these sun hoodies. This is my second one. I have a plain gray one and a graphic one now. I like how they drop exclusive limited time logos. I wear it for everything from lounging, casual, indoor or outdoor climbing, hiking, biking, workouts, and its a great mountaineering layer that doesn't consume much space or weight. Im 6ft 2in and 190... Read MoreLbs and the L is a nice, athletic fit for me but not suffocating or restrictive. Will probably buy another if they keep refining logos. Id love it if they brought back the Conquerers of the Useless logo they used for some stuff a handful of years ago!

These Hoodies are in a league of their own, SUPERIOR! These hoody shirts hold up to the extreme conditions of professional mountaineering photography!

As a plus size women, I love this hoodie. The material is so soft and perfect for a breezy, sunny day! I love this!

October 24, 2022

Hi Laura, thank you for submitting this review. This shirt has tested with a range of 17-45 UPF, averaging around 34 UPF. Even at 17 UPF, it blocks at least 92% of the sun's ultraviolet rays. It still offers solid UV protection. Please let us know if we can answer any more questions, or be of any help!

Runs just a tad on the small side but not enough to keep me from purchasing again

A great sun hoodie! Super light and breathable and comfy to wear even in the hot Texas summer

Breathable and light wear

Its amazing fabric and feels good wearing it . very light and perfect if its hot out ..size up for comfortable fit...

Anything Cap Cool is the best!

I love every piece of cap cool I have. Its protects me from the sun and it lives up to its name of being cool when its hot out.

September 29, 2022


Its a nice summer lightweight shirt to protect from the sun. I'm about 5'10'' 180 and fit'ish' /athletic (I usually fall between a M & L with M giving the more fitted/modern look) and got a M which fits very snug (like I wouldnt even wear a Tshirt under it probably) which is fine I guess given its use case. But mos... Read Moret Patagonia stuff I got for a M in and they are a bit roomier. Overall its a good piece and will get used - but if I were to buy again I would probably go with a large.

September 27, 2022

Fits well

This fits great, I wear it as a shirt with nothing underneath. Its not too hot, but protects me from the sun while fishing. I was hoping to wear it for mountain biking too but I fear it will rip as the fabric is very thin.

My new favorite shirt

This shirt is so light it feels like I'm not wearing a shirt at all. Wearing it alone when it is warm or under a Better Sweater Hoodie was perfect for cool weather. I am 5' 8" and 160 pounds with an athletic build, the medium fits as if it was tailored for me. I am planning on purchasing another in a different color.

September 23, 2022

Gift That Was a Hit

The fabric is breathable, light, soft yet warm enough for autumn weather. It is thin enough to be worn under another shirt. The color is true to what was represented and so was the size.

Light and Casual

Could be a little heavier weight.

Solution for Standing in The Sun All Day

I've got a job that requires me to be outside for hours in the sun and this was the ticket. I kept the hood up and over a ball cap. The result kept the sun off of my arms and especially my neck. But, I did not overheat. Now, I wear this day after day when I'm in this situation.

September 21, 2022


So Epic

September 20, 2022

Super versatile and comfortable

This is the fifth hoody I have purchased. This last one was for my best friend and he absolutely loves. I also bought one for his wife and my wife. I think that tells the whole story and I highly recommend it for casual wear and hiking in the mountains where it excels as big and sun protection while not being hot at all.

September 20, 2022

So comfortable

Most comfortable sun hoodie I own, the material is super light and it fits well.

September 16, 2022

Thin and works well for moderate weather

Loved the color (sky blue). The shirt fit well and was similar to others I have bought without the hoodie. The hoodie construction seems to be a little awkward. It keeps falling in the front. Have to try covering up the head in cooler weather to see it will keep my ears warm. Until then it is a 4 star

As a Caucasian living in Hawaii, sun protection is very important to me, and the Patagonia Capilene products have never failed me and my sensitive skin.

Super Comfy. -and classy

I bought this primarily for sun protection on hot days at the beach or on the boat. I sadly struggle with Patagonias sizing in many of their clothes. Despite being 6ft 4 and 190, Im a medium sometimes. I bought the large though and it fit great. Liked it so much I actually bought a second.

September 9, 2022

Cant stop wearing

My husband wont take this shirt off. He loves it!

September 7, 2022

Cool feel with built in sun protection

Great feel wet or dry. I wear this wade fishing in the Pamlico Sound, and on the beaches of the Outer Banks. Sun protection is key, and this shirt fits the bill. Also nice to have the odor resistance bc you know fish are sometimes smelly...not me, never me!

September 7, 2022


I love Sun hoodies and have several others from Patagonia. The fabric of this one is thinner than some others which is great, and the body is reasonably trim instead of the huge baggy fit of some other brands. However, I find the sleeves and body to be a bit short, and definitely shorter than other Patagonia ones I have. It's ok, but it shoul... Read Mored be longer.

Response from Patagonia
September 15, 2022

We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry to hear the sleeve and hem length are disappointing. You will gain a bit of length with our [Relaxed Fit Capilene Cool Hoody]( but likely the width will feel more like that huge baggy fit of the other brands you mention. Please reach out if you decide you'd prefer to return it. We'll be happy to help!

September 6, 2022

Unbelievable Comfort

The lightest, most breathable shirt you'll find. I wear it whenever I can. Great for our in the sun for cool protection, or for just lounging around home. And looks sharp too. Cannot recommend enough. I've now gotten 4, and my wife and her friend got one and even our kids have one each. Feels like a dream.

September 5, 2022


I live in my cool daily graphics. Get compliments every time I wear this. Havent used the hood yet but Im sure itll be perfect this fall.

Too small for me good news for my son!

I love these hoodies and have several of them that I wear constantly for fishing, boating and outdoor activity.

Versatile piece of clothing

Bought this shirt with the built-in SPF in mind so when Im out and about in the blazing hot sun or out in the beach or a music festival, I can be cool and protected from the elements.

July 15, 2022


I've never had a shirt with this material before but I love it. It keeps me cooler on these 93+ degree days and I wear it to the gym and outdoors. I particularly like that it is long sleeve and can protect my skin from direct sunlight when I feel it's too hot.

July 14, 2022

Cool even in the Hawaii sun!

I bought this originally for my husband to wear sailing across the Pacific, but he forgot to pack it, so I took it on a recent trip to Hawaii.

Would recommend!

Fits well, breathable, keeps the sun off!

Super soft, durable and versatile. Goes from beach to pool to gardening to casual dinners out. The hood is probably my fav part. Its just the right size for Sun protection.

June 10, 2022


This one actually my 6th time purchase I love the it.Extremely comfortable for hiking,surfing,fishing, I like recommend for any one.

June 9, 2022


What an awesome material. Went on a trip to Dallas TX and felt very comfortable in it in a 110 degree weather, wore it for a week straight and it didnt even get stinky(used a good deodorant on my self) but still any other material would become nasty in a day of two this cool cap kept fresh.

June 6, 2022

Great piece!

Fit is perfect. I'm 5'7" and the XS is just right. Fabric is silky smooth. It's so lightweight and moves so freely that I forget I'm wearing it.

Great sun protection

Great sun protection and good looks. Great for summer bike rides, climbing and sailing. Stay cool and skip the sunscreen. I now have 3 of these and wear them all the time.

Perfect for summer to protect you from the sun, perfect for layering. Hoodie keeps the sun off your neck, thumb holes to keep the sun off your hands.
