Baby Capilene® Cool Daily Hoody

True To Size
October 13, 2022


I bought the baby Capilano cool daily hood for my 27 month old grandson. Both he and his mom couldn't be happier. It's lightweight and soft, no chafing on tender toddler skin. Perfect for keeping him protected from sun whether he's home in colorado or on vacation at the beach.

Washes Easy

Fits my kiddo nicely, and blueberries came out of white surprisingly easy.

September 7, 2022

The cutest ever

Soft, comfy, easy on and off. A great alternative to trying to get sunscreen on a wiggly toddler! He loves it and so do we.

September 7, 2022

Best sun protection

I have bought these in every size since my first child was 18months old. Offers great sun protection and is super light weight. The hood is great especially for kids who dont want to wear hats. Good for the beach, boat, hiking, playground, garden and so many more adventures Our entire family wears them!

Great Summer Beach Shirt

This kid's hoodie is perfect for beach days and cool nights. The leight weight shirt is perfect for my kiddo and our days in the sun. The fit is loose and ideal to layer with a t shirt.

Favorite clothes for my kids

These are my favorite items of clothing for both my kids. We've gotten them in every size as they've grown (from 3m to 5T) and it's always money well spent. During the summer, my kids live in them as a way to beat the heat and sun and during our wet PNW spring and fall they are the perfect layer under a rain jacket. Love them.

August 16, 2022

Great for covering up

These shirts are great for covering up kid's arms and they're nice and lightweight so they work great in hot weather.

Tags for toddlers wear

For toddlers base-layers, can we put all tags outside/exterior? They are 3 inches long, and we have to cut them anyway very short so that it wont be scratching our kids skin. I know it may not look too fashionable having them tagged outside, but good for little ones, maybe up to 3T.

July 28, 2022

Perfect outdoor shirt for toddlers

Love this shirt for my 2 toddlers (1 1/2 and 3). It is cute and soft so kids are delighted to wear it all the time. Keeps sun off so I don't have to constantly be reapplying quite so much sunscreen, dries quickly when wet or we need to hand wash on the go, washes clean after even the dirtiest of toddler camping weekends, fabric holds up and st... Read Moreill looks new after a summer of living in this shirt.

July 9, 2022

Love it.

I had bought a smaller one about a year ago for my granddaughter to use when on our boat. We loved it so much I bought this one for her to have now. It is so soft and comfortable my granddaughter loves to wear it.

June 16, 2022

Awesome kid's shirt!

Great adventure and every day shirt for kids! Keeps the sun and bugs off. Our two-year-old loves the hood, which is nice and big! She tries to wear this shirt every day.

June 7, 2022

Gets used all year long - very functional

Ive been buying this for my son since he was 12 months and Ive continued to buy one as he put grows them. Works great for hot and cold weather. Used it for hiking, beach, pool, and layering in cold weather. Highly recommend it

June 3, 2022

So Soft

My little guy loves this hoody! It is so soft but light weight and breathable. Perfect for keeping the Sun off his skin during beach days. I wish they had more patterns, I would absolutely buy more!

May 25, 2022

Perfect Summer Layer for Babies

Bought two of these for my twins' first river trip. It worked like charm to keep them well protected from the sun and cool in the heat.

April 28, 2022

Baby sun shirt FTW!

For the win! We love these shirts and bought three of them. They have been great for all of the kids and the hood it makes it must have her summer. Wish the hood came with a little soft brim to keep the sun out of Babys eyes.

April 1, 2022

Perfect cover up for little ones

Great sun protection, dries quickly, and the hood is great when she loses her hat!

March 22, 2022

Great summer sun layer for baby, in and out of water

We use this at the beach and during hot sunny days here in Israel. It does the job, works fine when wet. Dries fast.

March 18, 2022

So cute, easy to clean

If your little alligator is already wet this can be tricky to put on, but once on it stays on. Hood mostly stays put but my lil buddy is mostly bald so perhaps that is helping. Looks super cute and is easy to clean when it inevitably gets covered in food and baby barf.

Keeps the little guy out of the sun

These are awesome for keeping my little guy out of the sun while he is playing at the sandbar or at the beach.

FFS Patagonia, Please make NEUTRALS

I love Patagonias kid apparel (and adult) so much. BUT I am so shockingly tired of them offering neutral colors one year (plain pink, blue, etc.), selling out, and then only releasing bright colors and prints and graphics the next year. Or they make a neutral and then slap a bright colored trim on it like the navy coat with neon green zipper. Ple... Read Morease, please, please make neutral colors for those of us whose kids dont like wearing obnoxious colors and prints. The bright blue is the only slightly passable one, but they got rid of the very lovely light pink they had last yearheck even the relatively muted floral from last year was better than whats offered now. I cant wait to see what they release in the big kids style. Sincerely, A parent who just wants neutrals

Hey Megan, thanks for sharing your input with us on the Baby Capilene Cool Daily Hoody. Every season we try to provide options for those who prefer neutral colors and those who'd like something a bit more bright. We'll be sure to share your feedback with the team for future consideration. We do have some new colors coming out in April of 2022, so keep an eye out for that. You can sign up for emails by going to the homepage of the website, scrolling to the very bottom and entering your email in the bottom left-hand corner.

Summer Must Have

Better than sunscreen and the coolest option out there. Patagonia bring these back!!! Despite the recall we love these. Might not be 50upf but if buy more in a heartbeat.

June 1, 2021

Runs small

Love these sun hoodies for our kiddos and have been buying for the last 4 years. This year we bought 2T and 5T for our kiddos and they are WAY smaller than the ones weve bought previous years. Love the sun protection and good but bummed about how tight they are this year. Wish they made the hooded version for the boys sizes.

Perfect for sun protection and comfort!

Adorable and useful

So easy and useful for a morning hike in the sun, riding bikes in the culdesac and camping!

May 13, 2021

Great under helmets

Works great under a MTB helmet or a climbing helmet for my three year old.

May 11, 2021

Lightweight and cute!

Super lightweight and seems pretty durable. Purchased a 3T for my 20 month old. He is currently in 18mon-2T but bought larger so he can wear longer. Fits him a little big as expected but it super cute and not too big that he cannot wear it now.

May 6, 2021

Perfect for fair-skinned baby

This shirt is exactly what we needed... something high quality enough to be comfortable in the heat while saving us from needing to slather our toddler in sunscreen everywhere. It has good coverage around the neck.

May 4, 2021

Excellent toddler sun shirt

Quality sun shirt for a toddler. Fits true to size, unlike much patagonia baby stuff which I find to run on the larger side.

May 4, 2021

Perfect Kids Sun Shirt

I Love these sun shirts for my two boys, and have purchased them again and again in larger sizes as they've grown. The ones my oldest has grown out of (and worn a ton!) still look great for my youngest, and I'm sure will hold up well to all of his wearing as well. They are light, cool, and protect my kiddos sun. This shirt and a sun hat a... Read Morend they are good to go in sunny Colorado.

Great sun shirt for busy toddler

Bought it in pink size 3T for our very fair 2 year old daughter who is currently in between sizes 2T and 3T. Easy to put on before we head outside and she loves it! Hoping this will be good for summer camp and school to protect her from sunburns.

April 30, 2021

Runs small

Got this sun shirt for my 8 month old fair skinned mermaid to wear on her grandparents sailboat and at the beach. Fits perfect in April but afraid she will outgrow it before sailing season begins. Returned for the next size up

April 30, 2021

A must have for every kid

No matter the activity, my kids live in these shirts. Perfect for those long beach days. light, soft, quick to dry. I buy these for every friend who has a kid. amazing... 11 out of 10.

April 28, 2021


I got this for my fair skinned daughter. It fits great and brings such peace of mind that shes protected from the sun

April 27, 2021

Great Shirt

We bought this for my son who is a tall 2-year-old. This shirt fits him great and there is room to grow. I like that it is lightweight and that it dries quickly. He does wear it as a swim shirt to the pool or beach, but he mostly wears it as a regular shirt.

April 20, 2021

Big fan!

We are on our fourth version of this sunshirt b/c my sons keep outgrowing them. They are really light weight and perfect for hot days. The hood is deep enough that it stays put even with a little wind. My two sons (3 and 5) live in these shirts all summer long.

April 16, 2021

Perfect lightweight option

Got this for my baby for hiking/beach, its the perfect material and fits great!

April 13, 2021

Great lightweight kids sun protection

A friend recommended this to me and Im so glad she did. It is perfect for protecting toddlers in the sun. The material is so soft... now I want one for me!

April 13, 2021

Perfect for playing in the sun

Our daughter is VERY fair so when warmer weather was coming I wanted some options for keeping her protected beyond sunscreen. While it is expensive, the sun hoody is perfect for throwing on her for a quick jaunt outside or for a longer hike. She doesn't mind the hood either.

April 9, 2021

Soft and Comfortable!

I bought one of these for each of my kids, and sized up for each. We do a lot of fishing and kayaking but dont always go in the water especially in spring when theres still ice on the lake but its 80 degrees, temperatures are all over the place in Wisconsin. Its nice they dont always have to put on their swimsuits and can still be protected from th... Read Moree sun and heat. Both of my kids love how soft the fabric is!

March 27, 2021

Perfect for days on the river

We had this in 9-12 mos and just bought the exact same thing again in 2T for our 20 mo old. The smaller size lasted us several months and I hope the 2T will get us through the summer. Perfect for days out fly fishing with Mom & Dad.

February 26, 2021

Super cute and functional

Love this hoodie. So cute in the pink! And great material

September 18, 2020

Great for Redheads

My son is three and a redhead. He kept getting sunburned at preschool, even when sent with a sunscreen and detailed instructions. We have two of these sun shirts now and always keep one in his school bag and he hasnt been sunburned since. They are light enough to wear on hot days and my son likes how they feel against his skin. We have an older one... Read More which was way over-sized, but the ones I bought this year seem perfect - the 3T fits him with enough room for comfort but not so much that it looks a size too big. I also bought one for my daughter and her 18mo old one fit perfectly as well.

September 18, 2020

Love it

This is such a perfect shirt, so soft and comfy and stains come out well, the hood is great too. Fit might be a just a tad on the small side, maybe order up if on the fence... I ordered my 2.5 year old son a 5t, he is 40lbs and 41 inches tall, (size of an average 4 year old) its not that big on him I thought it fit like 4t Patagonia shirts we have

September 14, 2020

Soft Breathable top

Loved the quality of this hoodie. Perfect for summer fall wear. We make him wear on our hikes and during travel. Love it and looks super cute.

September 8, 2020

Perfect for baby!

I purchased this as a present for babies i know. The hoodie is comfortable for baby, easy to clean and easy to put on. Babys first Patagonia garment and will be an outstanding hand me down!

September 3, 2020

Lightweight, good sized hood

I bought this shirt in size 2T for my 14 month old son to grow into. The 2T seems to fit true to size. The fabric feels lightweight enough to wear on a warm day, but the lack of vents does worry me slightly on really hot days. It will probably be best in shoulder seasons. Great color (blue)!

September 2, 2020

Perfect for sun!

This garment is the perfect weight to keep baby covered but not hot! The hood stays on well without getting in babys eyes, too; its one of the only head coverings she doesnt immediately mess with. We love this and would happily pay full price again!

September 1, 2020

LOVE ️ it!

I bought this for my daughter; she's 15 months, and it's perfect for protecting her from the sun without all the sticky, smelly sunscreen. It's super light, but still offers full coverage. It's the only hat/hood she'll leave on her head. I'll be ordering another when she grows out of this one for next summer!
