The relaxed fit works better for me. I'm 5'9", 165 lbs and aging so the medium sizes are getting more snug. The slightly larger size feels better in the heat too. I get chilled all the time and this is my first go-to item in the summer and warmer spring/fall days. Being a sailor requires covering up and this is my favorite hoodie. Wi...

perfect light shirt to wear for hot weather and sun protection
I work outdoors for 10 hours a day and really wanted something to prevent tanning and most importantly protect my skin. This hoody is perfectly breathable and light, so it's very pleasant to wear on those really hot summer days. I loved it so much that this is my second set so I could have some variety. Would also appreciate if this came in da... Read Morerker colorways!
Fantastic for everything
These are great from spring to fall in the Deep South, including triple-digit summers. Breathable, moisture-wicking and the relaxed fit is a bit more forgiving in the midsection. We desperately need more normal colorways, Patagonia. And please bring back pumice. I've been waiting for many, many months at this point.
Very good, but not quite perfect (fit)
The material is great - light, stretchy, comfortable & breathable - but the fit & cut could be better in my opinion. The length and sleeves are juuust long enough to keep me from returning it, but I'd easily prefer another inch on each if not more, and every time I put the shirt on I think about that. For a sun shirt, I like having amp... Read Morele coverage and having the length and sleeves be just barely long enough isn't ideal and I think it a bit unflattering as well aesthetically. Going up a size would have been swimming in the torso I think. For reference, the fit & cut of the Tropic Comfort Natural in the same size is PERFECT. Would love to have this in a similar cut & fit to that. Would still recommend it, but the fit may not be for everyone.
Great fit for shorter people
I am a shorter adult male and have successfully bought Patagonia jackets in Mens XS in the past.

My favorite Sun Hoody
The Capilene Cool Hoody is my go-to hoody when I need protection from the sun. The smooth cool fabric makes it easy to wear while protecting you from the blazing sun. This is a must-have piece if you spend any time on the water, on the beach, or if you are looking for a lightweight long sleeve.
Runs small, for small heads
I was really disappointed in this sun shirt. I have a different version from several years ago in XL and the XXL in this version is smaller. I fish quite a bit and a big draw for any sun shirt is a hood to keep the sun off of my head and neck. The hood on this is so small that it barely fits over my head, so its not very useful.
We're sorry to hear this hood didn't fit you better! We want you to be happy with everything you get from us. If you haven't done so already, we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it. Thanks for sharing this feedback, Garth!
Good for warm weather sun protection
Patagonia traditionally has awful oversized fits, and I was afraid with the "relaxed fit" this would be huge, but actually fits quite good.

Only complaint is that the hood is a ta... Read Mored large and if its windy can catch wind gusts, wish it was a tad bit more form fitting, but it fits over a helmet/hat better this way.

Love all Patagonia Capilene products. I have about a dozen long sleeve Capilene shirts/hoodies. The size XL relaxed fit is just too big. I should have trusted my instincts and ordered a large. Other than it being too big its and amazing shirt. Keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.
Flats fishing dream
I love this hoodie and own three with 2 more on the way. The material is super soft, comfortable on the skin and quick drying. It offers great protection in the beat-down Florida sun.

My partner is a huge fan of these shirts. We purchased the first two after visiting Maui and staff on a boat tour were wearing similar styles to protect from the intense sun.

Well-designed, Good Material, Comfortable.
I wear this casually. It is quite comfortable, exactly what I wanted. Capilene is a favorite fabric for me. Others have suggested that a 3-part hood design might be better--to remove the center seam. That sounds good to me, although I have not had an issue with the center-seam design.
Very nice. Generously sized
Very nice, well made shirt. You can tell the stitching is well done, I don't know anything about stitching, but with these spandex-like stretchy shirts you know how the stitching is the first to go with other brands like Huk or even Columbia PFG.

I like a more relaxed fit, and don't buy into this "athletic cut" most companies are selling so they can get more yield out of the same bolt of fabric.

Very soft too and not scratchy like other "sun shirts". Seems to dry very quickly as well. Very happy with this shirt.

It also provides excellent sun protection. It is the comfort provided by the fabric that makes this possible.

I recommend keeping two in your pack as they are an extremely versatile layer that you can wear from the beach to the snow-covered mountain top.
Nice base layer
Fall has arrived & this hoodie shirt beneath a flannel layer or sweatshirt works great for the cool mornings & evenings. Flipping up the hood really helps to stay comfy.

Medium with relaxed fit is sized just right for the longer torso.
The best thing about this capiline cool daily hoody is the fit. I am 6 feet, 180 pounds, not much gut, but due to a long torso and short legs medium sizes barely cover my belly button. This medium (relaxed fit) is a bit longer than usual and just the right length. It hangs down to just above the important stuff!
Good but could be better
Purchased this shirt as I wanted to get some more Patagonia gear in my closet, typically I wear XXL PFG Columbia shirts (best fitting and comfort) and North Face shorts (best true to size active wear). I have other Patagonia shirts but I've found sizing to be off and fits similar to North Face tops which is tighter vs Colmbia tops giving more ... Read Morerelaxed and comfortable fit and consistent sizing. So this top I went up to a 3XL for sizing. This top is comfortable, heavier than you typical moisture wicking top but I feel it will do me better on chilly early Fall morning hikes and be more durable longevity wise. It does a good job keeping you cool in full direct summer sun, but isn't as airy feeling which can be good and bad. If you're just sitting in the sun baking, it's a bit warmer. If you're on a boat or in windy conditions it cuts the wind pretty good. I do wish it had thumb holes, the absence of these make it less protective on the hands which if I'm out fishing on the ocean is a nice to have. Also if I'm hiking, it's nice to have less loose clothing when it starts getting wet. In all its a good shirt and comfortable. Just be mindful that it has no thumb holes and material is a bit heavier than your typical tech style shirt.
Good, but prefer the 2021 Technical Sunshade Hoodie
I am glad I have bought the Capilene Hoody, but I prefer the Men's Technical Sunshade Hoody from 2021. I was looking for another Technical Sunshade Hoody. It is not offered. I have been told it is being re-designed for Spring 2023. I am looking forward to that. There are four key features of the 2021 Technical Sunshade Hoody that are not inclu...

They are (1) a chest pocket, (2) thumb loops at the sleeves, (3) a button to secure the front of the hoody near the front of the neck, and, (4) 50 spf instead of 30 spf. I miss all of these four features. I have had skin cancer. I need the sun protection. I still enjoy mountain hiking, walking on the beach and being outside. Sunshade hoodies are important to me and I wear them often. Although I wear the Capilene on a regular rotation, I look forward to a new design of the Spring 2023 Technical Sunshade Hoody. I'll buy them if they restore the missing features.
I recently wore the Capilene
I recently wore the Capilene Hoody during a hot and buggy day fishing the Madison River near Ennis, MT. It kept the bugs off, protected my arms, neck, and ears from sunburn, and I was warm but not hot while casting for trout. The 3 big ones got away, but I kept my cool.

Needs 3-panel Hood like Tropic Comfort II hoodie, otherwise great material
Patagonia appears to have discontinued the Tropic Comfort II Hoody (which I love dearly) so I decided to purchase this thinking the design team wanted to streamline the sun-hoody lineup.

Read Moreooler in miserable Florida summers than tight fitting "wicking" shirts because evaporative cooling doesn't work as well in humidity as it does in the desert. My biggest gripe is the hood and it really has me bummed out. The Tropic Comfort II Hoody has a large 3-panel hood that fits easily over a hat, while this Capilene Hoody just has smaller hood with a single seam running down the middle. The smaller hood doesn't easily pull over a hat and the body is actively pulled-upward when you do flip it up. They also did away with thumb-holes on this model which isn't a big deal for me. The medium fits great at 5'11 180lbs.

Very glad I bought it after my wife said "You're buying aNOTHER one??"
I'm liking it!
It's been warming up lately and love to put these on for bike rides, walks, surf fishing and lounging around beaches. After wading out in the surf to cast, it got all wet but I was amazed how fast it dried! I'm planning to wear this in the mountains casting flys for German brown! Yahoo!
