Tahoe Sun Hoodie

Sunny summer days are some of our favorite days to visit the crag, go camping in the desert, or enjoy long winding trails with our furry adventure friends. For such occasions, we pull on the Tahoe Sun Hoodie to keep us cool, comfortable, and well shaded, all without slowing us down.

  • A performance hoodie for warm-weather adventures in the backcountry
  • Lightweight fabric offers abrasion-resistant, sweat-wicking comfort
  • Stretch construction ensures that no handhold is out of reach
  • Thumbholes keep the sleeves secure as we climb, hike, or run
  • Built-in UPF blocks harsh UV radiation from harshing our vibes
  • Slim fit delivers low-bulk convenience that's easy to layer

Runs small- size up

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XS

I am returning it, because it's just too tight. It was digging into my armpits and the hood was super snug. I am 5'2 and 110 pounds and got an XS, should have ordered a small.

Love this sun shirt

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

Bought this on a whim in a size large. I’m 5’9”, 150 lbs.Have worn it hiking in San Francisco on a sunny and breezy day and was comfortable. Also, worn during a backpacking trip in 80-90 degrees in Yosemite. Again, I was comfortable, it fit well under a pack and kept the sun off. Love that the sleeves have thumb holes and are long enough to be comfortable. It dries quickly.

Best sun shirt!

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

Love this shirt and have now ordered one in another color. Best sun shirt I have ever worn-light-weight, protective, and flattering! I wear it on the river, on hikes, and basically everything on hot days. Quick to dry and cool feel for hot day protection!

#1 Favorite Sun Hoody

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I love sun hoodies, so I thought I should give the Tahoe Sun Hoody a try. It is by far my favorite and I've pretty much tried them all! I've been hiking and paddling in it all spring and summer and have been really impressed with how cool and comfortable it has kept me. My favorite features are the super airy and breathable 30+ UPF fabric that has kept me more protected than using 30 SPF sunscreen and the offset seams under the arms to protect you from chafing when paddling. These really set it apart from all others I've tried! I found the fit to be trim, but true to size, similar to Arc'teryx's fit. If you are on the smaller end of your regular size, go with your regular size and if you are close to in between sizes, I'd consider sizing up. I'm a pretty consistent large in most clothing (including Backcountry) and the large in this fits me perfectly. I loved it so much I bought two and one for my husband!

#1 Favorite Sun Hoody

Soft and Protective

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: small

This sun shirt is wonderful. It is set aside from others in my opinion because the fabric used is soft, but also feels more durable than others on the market. I would be comfortable wearing this product on a rock climb, and also on the river! It fits slightly small, I normally wear a small or (smedium) so I am on the larger side of the small spectrum. I ordered a small, and it fit me pretty snugly. If you like a roomier fit size up!

Soft and Protective

Nice, but unsure about UPF

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XXS

I purchased this to wear on summer dog walks because I hate having to slather on sunscreen every day. It's lightweight enough for the middle of summer, but it's also see-through which gives me doubts about the UPF. Cute top, but since it did not seem like it would fulfill my primary reason for buying, I sent it back.

Just what I was looking for

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: L

I was looking for a casual mountain biking shirt for cool, comfortable temps in Salt Lake. This shirt has a heavier, mesh feel. I really like the sleeves, they have extra, heavy elastic ends that will stay in place. I ordered a large for a looser fit and I'm happy with it

New Favorite Hiking Shirt

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

I've been wearing this on cooler hikes, and for sun protection, and am loving it! Fabric is relatively soft to touch, very light and breathable, and hood has a nice fit as well. Can be worn over hat for additional protection from sun or bugs. It's really an all around adventure shirt, I've worn from hiking to casual biking for a full Sunday outdoors. Also looking forward to using this on the lake or river for sun protection when paddling and hanging! I'm 5'3" and 128 lbs and happy with the medium. The fit is a bit looser for hiking with a pack and easily taking on and off as a layer.

Best Sun Shirt Yet

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

I've tried Patagonia's and OR's women's sun shirts, and I have to say this is by far the best one yet. I'm 5'8, 125lbs, and I ordered the medium. The fit is perfect. I wanted it to be a little bit looser so it wouldn't ride up while wearing a backpack.


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: S

See-through. Like I think my sports bra that day was black, and you could totally see the entire outline of it. Other than that, very comfy and liked the thumb holes!
