Pentapitch Pullover Hoodie

Pentapitch is a multi-pitch climb in Little Cottonwood Canyon in our home region of Northern Utah, and it stays in the sun most of the day. Instead of applying sunscreen at each anchor, the Backcountry Men's Pentapitch Pullover Hoodie shields your skin from the sun's harsh sunlight. Its light fabric feels great in warmer weather, and it has a four-way stretch for full mobility on the mountain. The hood keeps rays from burning the back of your neck while you belay, and the 1/4-zip front adds ventilation when you get too warm. An adjustable waist helps keep this hoodie under your harness while you climb.

  • Backcountry's lightweight pullover for climbing in the sun
  • Four-way stretch fabric provides reliable UV protection
  • Polygiene treatment ensures odor control
  • Fixed hood with 1/4-zip front for ventilation
  • Shock cord waist adjustment stays secure under harnesses

SO versatile!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I bought this jacket in the mens style instead of the womens because I like the relaxed fit of the sleeves. I have worn this a ton as an evening layer in the summer, backpacking in Glacier National Park and on a week-long rafting trip on the Main Salmon. It does a good job of cutting the wind but is very breathable and lightweight. It also stays super warm when it gets wet!

Real Nice

I really like this hoodie as an in between when you don't really know how to manage your temperature. I wear it inside a lot if a building is a little chilly but doesn't warrant a jacket. It is great for summer mornings and evenings when there is just a slight chill in the air. In direct sunlight, it is great for keeping the sun off your body. If the amibient air temperature is much over 75 or 80 you will definitely be sweating in this, but I'd rather be a little warm and not have the sun hitting me than be in a t-shirt burning all day.

I recently took this to the City of Rocks for some climbing in Idaho. Despite the summer solstice, daytime temps didn't breach 80. This was my favorite piece on that trip.

I am 5'9" and a medium fits really well. The sleeves are a good length and the elastic cuffs hold well. The hood fits nicely under my C.A.M.P. climbing helmet, and the torso comes down far enough to stay under my harness without rising up. It also cinches around the torso which is nice if it's windy. The addition of thumb loops to this hoodie would make it epic.

Also, the Paprika Red color looks a little aggressive in the product photos but is much more gentle in person. I like the color a lot and have received several compliments on it.

Real Nice

Looks like you're wearing the Paprika Red (looks great btw!) and not the Sedona Sage...

Andy, right you are! Thanks for catching that. Just made an edit to the review.

Where’s the Thumb Holes

    Much to my wife’s chagrin, I primarily live in shirts like this. They look good, i can work in them and play around in them. They are versatile and functional. This piece hits all of those marks. Great fit and great look. But where, oh where are the thumb holes? Its slightly overpriced compared to competative pieces but overlooking the thumb hole feature is a bit of a mis step

    Any recommends on others? (sounds like you have some experience)

    Lightweight Hoodie or Heavier Sun Shirt

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Large

    The Pentapitch is a versatile lightweight hoodie for any adventure. The 4-way stretch fabric makes it one of the most comfortable pieces in my closet. I’m taking it on a bike trip to Moab for those cold evenings when the sun drops and you need a little extra warmth.

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.

    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Sleeve:
    Have someone measure from the center of the back neck down the arm, with arm slightly bent, to the wrist bone.
    Waist:
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Inseam:
    Measure from the crotch to the floor with no shoes.
    Hip:
    Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
