September 13, 2023

Super Comfortable

The shirt is lightweight, soft and does not cling to your skin when sweating. Great product!

September 11, 2023

Awesome shirt

This is my new favorite shirt. Love the hood. Wish there were thumbholes, but otherwise great!

September 9, 2023

Love it

Perfect trail running top for long runs. Keeps me warm enough on cool mornings and transitions Well to the warm and sunny afternoons. No changing of clothing at all. I have way too many of these shirts now

September 9, 2023

Appreciate purchasing from conscientious company

The clothing I purchased were quality look and feel.

September 6, 2023

Comfy and cool

Dry comfortable and cool. Protects me from the sun without all the sun screen.

September 5, 2023

Comfy extra thin layer

For those brisk morning walks when you need just a little more warmth in the summer or a thin layer of sun protection while hiking or biking, this hoodie is perfect addition.

September 4, 2023

Love my new blue pat

Love my new blue pat sun hoody !

September 3, 2023

Cute and versatile

The other reviews are spot-on about the sizing. If you want roomier, go up a size. This is the perfect material for not too hot and not too cold. I’m excited to use it during trips that go from cities to mountains.

September 1, 2023

Perfect hiking sun shirt

I love the Daily Graphic Hoody, I have three of them and it's always my go to trekking/hiking shirt. It keeps you cool and protects from the sun.

September 1, 2023

Softest hoody for slightly cool weather

Love this ever so soft hoody! And it’s so cute! I bought the blue one. Perfect for running or hiking in cool, but not cold weather or just want sun protection. Although it does not have thumbholes.

August 31, 2023

Perfect weight!

I absolutely love this shirt as a light layer over tank tops before and after workouts! I ordered a size up, which was a good decision for layering purposes. The Ridge Rise Moonlight/Peach is the perfect pale pink.

August 28, 2023

So cool!

It’s been such a hot summer! I love wearing my Patagonia cooling shirts.

August 28, 2023

wearing capilene in Hot weather

My long sleeve capilene shirts, that I bought larger than my size( Medium ) worked really great for me! They are loose fitting and breath really well! So far they are the coolest shirt I’ve found to hike in! I definitely recommend them! I ordered Two more and now have 4 long sleeve shirts to protect from the suns rays💖

August 27, 2023

Lightweight and comfy

I have four of these shirts now. They are perfect to keep cool and have some sun protection!

August 27, 2023


Comfy and lightweight. Loving this hoody for hiking. I sized up so that I can fit other layers underneath. Really loving this top.

August 24, 2023

Cool and Comfy

Just tested out my new sun hoody on a warm hike in the desert here in southern AZ. It is nice and lightweight and offers good sun coverage. Just what I was looking for!

August 18, 2023

Love the material!

I am a field going biologist and spend a lot of time in the sun/in the moutains. I was looking for a long sleeve that provided sun protection but also sun and head protection. Bought the pink and the fish design and absolutely love! They are true to size, if you wanted to wear something under this it might be a little tight. I will be wearing with ... Read Morea ball camp and hood up for neck protection. Typically, I'll wear a bandana around my neck for protection but I love that patagonia is coming up with sun-hoodies! I am 5'4", athletic build, usually between small and medium. Small fits just perfectly. I haven't tested the sun-hoodies in the woods yet, hoping they can withstand getting tugged by branches. The material is thin and might be a bit delicate.

August 8, 2023

Lightweight and Cool

Fabric is very lightweight and kept me cool in the hot sun. Feels soft and nice against the skin. Seems durable, didnt get any snags carrying around a paddle board and gear. Only complaint is the hood, which doesn't cover my neck as much as other sun hoodies I have, and is not fitted to stay on your head. Definitely more fashionable than the o...

July 19, 2023

Perfect Most of the Time

I have three of the Capilene Hooded Daily long sleeve shirts and I wear them almost every time I hike, bike, fish, swim, climb. The long sleeve hoody has become for me a necessary piece of equipment, especially at elevation, on the snow or in the water, often combined with a buff. This shirt offers sun protection and is generally cool enough for mo... Read Morest of my activities. If it is a very hot day, this shirt can be a bit heavier than a few other competitors hoodys, made in a very lightweight material. However I have yet to create a snag in the Capilene hoody and my lighter shirts are pretty ripped up. I really enjoy the addition of fun graphics and lots of color options. There are times I wish the shirt had thumb holes for a little coverage over my hands, however I do try to wear sun gloves, and my shirts with thumb holes end up wearing much quicker at the sleeve, so trade offs. All I'm all this is often the shirt I reach for in the drawer when I'm headed out, almost no matter what the activity.

July 16, 2023

The Perfect Summer Top

I love this so much I have multiples. Keeps you cool and protected from the sun. Love the hood. Sleeves might be a tiny bit short but I have longer arms. 10/10 would recommend

July 4, 2023

Light and cool

A great light and cool shirt for warm weather.

June 18, 2023

Cool and comfortable

Perfect lightweight summer sun protection shirt for outdoor activities.

May 9, 2023

Comfy and nice

I love how lightweight but sturdy this is - I was gardening in it and it didn't get any holes, even when pulling up blackberry brambles. The pink color is great, and the fit is comfortable. My only tiny minor complaint is that I wish the neck hole was a bit bigger, since with a hood it naturally pulls back over time and I don't like feeli... Read Moreng choked. But this shirt is definitely a perfect spring fit to easily suit those days with a 20-degree change in temp.

Great desert longsleeve

Wore this for a 33 mile, 9hr run in the Grand Canyon in early May after a few training runs wearing the shirt in sunny New Mexico. No sunburn if the hood is up and material holds up well when wet. Happy with this product, will definitely use throughout the summer months for hiking and long runs.

May 7, 2023

Perfect for warm weather

We really like the feel of this product. The only thing we don't like is the hood is way too big and goes over your face if you don't wear hat over the hood to keep it from falling into your face. It's great for warm weather.

April 27, 2023

From Hawaii's heat to Europe's winters this hoody does it all.

Great as a sun hoody and as a base layer in the colder months. I am wearing it around town, to the beach, and have even worn it underneath a down vest in the winter months. There is hardly any odor when you sweat, it washes and dries well. Ideal for traveling. Size Small fits my athletic build, I am 5.6, 124 lbs. with broad shoulders. Can highly re...

Sweet Material

No complaints. This shirt is very versatile. Super comfy. Bought several colors as I love this material.

April 25, 2023

Super comfy!

I love this top! It is soft, light and comfortable. I plan to buy another one in different color.

April 24, 2023

Soft and comfortable!

My new go to shirt, not to warm, works perfect with a fleece vest!

April 14, 2023


It's light weight and provides good coverage from the sun. It's a little too form fitting for me. I prefer a looser fit. Everything at Patagonia runs small imo.

Response from Patagonia
April 17, 2023

Hi Patricia! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the fit. We greatly appreciate this feedback and we'll share this with our design team.

April 13, 2023

Soft and comfortable

I love this shirt. It fits well, you can use it for sun protection without being really hot.

April 12, 2023

Super soft

This top is the softest top I own. The fit is perfect and it is very lightweight. I love it!

March 22, 2023

Light weight and comfortable

This is the perfect shirt for a hike. Light weight and protects you from wind or sun. Super fun graphics too!

March 21, 2023

A Beautiful Color Blue

This is going to be a nice and light top for Summer in WI. The long sleeves and hood will help to cover from the sun. It's such a nice light weight material too.

March 17, 2023

Lightweight hoody

Nice lightweight material! Sleeves are way too short and dont have thumb loops. Hood is big enough to fit over a hat, but is cut too low to block sun on your neck. Great light layer hoody if you dont want your wrists or neck covered!

March 17, 2023

Wonderful technical T-shirt

I am a convert to these cool trail long sleeve t shirts. They protect me from the harsh South Florida sun during mountain biking, fishing or other outdoor activities. When in the mountains (NC) they are fantastic hiking shirts. They are cute enough to wear with jeans when out and about. I now own four.

March 6, 2023

Lightweight and silky!

I purchased this to take to Jazzfest in New Orleans, where the sun can be brutal, and also to go hiking. The material is lovely. Silky and lightweight and cool. I followed the size chart, which recommended an XL. I probably would have been fine with an L, but I'm fine with extra room.

March 4, 2023

Love it so much I bought one for everyone!

This is my third one of these! One had to get thrown out eventually because i wore it so much). I wear these shirts pretty much everyday in the summer. They are super lightweight sun protection but also a great light layer for a hike or light wind in the beach. We just went to Disneyworld and it was hot and sunny every day and I was so glad to have... Read More this shirt. While it is a tad warmer than just a tank top, it is totally worth it to be more protected from the sun. I loved this so much I bought one for my husband and son as soon as we returned from our trip. Still looking for one that my daughter will like. I am 5 feet 5 inches and 135 Lbs and i can wear either small or medium. When I want it just to wear over a bbathing suit or slim tank top, the small is fine. I tend to like the medium so it can layer over anything and it is almost like a tunic at the beach. But the small definitely looks better.

March 3, 2023

Nice color but armholes too small

Color looked good and fit was OK but armholes were really small.

Response from Patagonia
March 8, 2023

So comfortable I love the style.

This shirt is so soft and comfortable. I have had a lot of compliments on it. I want to pick up a couple of the other styles!

February 16, 2023

Perfect fit

I love this Hoody! It just fits perfect. The blue is a little brighter than in the photo but I love it. One of my new favorite pieces.

February 15, 2023

True to size

This is a little tighter fit for me, but I am busty and broad shouldered so I would say a medium fits true to size. I should have ordered the large- the medium still fits, just a little more form fitting than used to.

February 12, 2023

Loved the first so bought another

My go-to-favorite shirt is same material but short sleeve. I wanted another one for cool mornings and late camping nights. This shirt is so perfect for me.

February 12, 2023

Great light weight hoodie

Looks good, feels good --fabric is really soft.

February 12, 2023

Favorite shirts

I own multiple cool daily hoodies because I find that I essentially live in them all summer long outside of work. So silky smooth against my skin and keeps me comfortable in a wide range of temperatures. Perfect for hiking and canoeing - keeping the sun off my neck and arms. Dries quickly too.

February 10, 2023

Beautiful shirt -runs Very Small

Loved the look of this hoodie. Knew it runs a bit small- usually wear size medium- ordered a large- still too small Hope sizing charts will be upgraded to show true measurements/sizes

February 9, 2023

Worked well for summer hiking

It does what it says. It fits properly. If it has sun protection, it'll be the PERFECT shirt for a summer vacation at a tropical island. I m only taking off one star for the UPF.

February 8, 2023

Nice medium to light weight top

I got this primarily for fly-fishing, but wear on early morning, slightly chilly walks/hikes. It is a nice weight and great material, feels very comfortable. I'm 5'7", 155 lbs, over 65, and bought size medium. It is somewhat snug, but my daughter tells me I have to stop wearing things so baggy :~). So some medium perfect.

February 8, 2023

Cute sun hoodie

I like this fabric more than the older version. Silky soft, super lightweight, and stretchy. Hood is huge which is good, covers the neck, and sleeves are long. If it really stays non stinky I will love it even more.

January 31, 2023

The only thing I wear on sunny warm adventures and in the desert.

I love this shirt. I finally had to buy a second one so that I didn't have to wear the same shirt for every summer adventure or spring ski.

January 28, 2023


I own probably 20 sun hoodies and this is my new favorite. Silky fabric, comfortable and stretchy with a big hood. Covers neck area well and if you upsize it it air conditioned. Cute pattern too

Buttery soft

This is my second capilene cool hoodie. They are amazingly soft, and nice and thin for layering. I am not always a fan of hoods, but this one is so lightweight it isn't annoying.

Nice hoodie

This hoodie is made from like t-shirt material, thought it was going to be much heavier and warmer. Need to wear something with it to keep warm. Would not be good by itself on a cool or cold day. But it is a nice piece of clothing, just not very heavy duty.

Just in time for Hurricane Ian

My hoodie arrived just two days before Ian. It was the perfect choice for me to wear while lots of people came to shelter with me in my home. Occasionally I had to run outside and got wet but the hoodie dried quickly and kept me snug and warm.

Perfect early fall layer

Super cute, lightweight, fits great. A nice little layer to have when the sun is warm, but the air is a bit cool.

Lightweight and cute

This shirt is exactly what I needed! I use the hood to keep bugs and the sun away. The fabric is perfect for cool fall weather, warm but not too warm and is breathable for when the sun comes out. The hood is large enough to fit over a bun or ponytail and the pink color is actually really pretty!

September 26, 2022

Breathable and flattering

This piece is great for layering and I love having a hood to pop out of other layers. Don't think it will Be good for winter but definitely spring and fall.

Nice hoodie - a little long in terms of length. Fit runs a bit on the small side.
