Best $65 I have ever spent!

Best Sun Shirt on the market! Used this shirt on Mt. Rainier and it literally saved my bacon from sunburn and heat. Light weight and wicks away the sweat while booting up to Camp Muir. Other than a well fitted pack, this shirt is a must have for snow field and glacier travel in the Spring and Summer. Highly Recommend!

I have heard that exact same feedback from another mountaineer! Thank you for writing, Mark!

Light as a Feather

Sometime, you want long sleeves without tons of warmth. Sometimes, you want to be hugged by a layer of polyester so thin and breathable that you are basically not wearing it. This is what exactly this layer is. It will give a small amount of warmth just because it is long sleeve, but its really made to breathe more than anything else. This is perfect for runners, fisherman, or even just wearing on chilly summer mornings. I bought mine the minute I heard about it, and I personally love it.

Slick hoodie

Super light thin stylie hoodie ! Bought this just as the weather started gettin chilly up here in Montana so it's a comfy indoor gym favorite of mine for now but I suspect I'll wear it plenty in warmer outdoor temps... Feels silky almost like nothin is on! I'm happy with it for sure and there's a little Zipper bonus pocket behind the hip perfect for an id debit card and a little cash! Nice job OR

Perfect sun shirt

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This shirt did 10 days with me on the JMT. I wore it every day as sun protection and it kept me nice and cool and comfortable the whole time. I was initially concerned about the UPF rating being "only" 15, but I had no issues with sunburn through the shirt. As a single top layer for hot conditions I believe this shirt is the best available.

Light, warm, comfortable

The material is so soft and light. It is so breathable I wore it when it was in the high 80's on a blue bird and stayed dry and comfortable. I really like the thumb loop features. They were comfortable and not super bulky when layering. It is a big long in the waist so it fits well under a harness but the sleeves are just right. I'm 6' -165 lb and went with a Large and fits perfect.

Super Breathable!

The Echo Hooded Shirt is the lightest material shirt I have worn. The AirVent fabric is super breathable and is almost like not wearing a shirt at all. I use it kayaking, splitboarding, and biking and found that I sweat less in it. It's amazing on a hot day because the wind blows right through and cools you down. The UPF 15 sun protection will also help keep the sun off you. Other features include a zippered pocket for your keys and nice reflective logos.

Breathable Warmth

I was initially attracted to this shirt based on the soft and supple fabric that it is made off, which feels amazing against the skin, but I was quite surprised by the warmth and breathability of it. This is a great base-layer for activities where you are working alot, and the material pumps out the excess heat, regulating your temperature . Than it is still great when it is hotter weather, the temperature regulation working as well and this shirt cooling you off while also protecting you from the sun. I wore this down in the desert of Utah and it was great from sun-up, to high-noon, and back to sun-down. My father was so impressed by that, and the UPF 15 sun rating, that he went and picked up his own.

Excellent Hooded Shirt for Activity

This shirt is excellent for a variety of use. Overall on a cool sunny day touring, you will find its best use. You will have the long sleeves and hood with sun protection helpful. Other than this at the beginning of a hike on a spring day it will keep that crisp morning air off and when your heart rate begins to rise you will not be too warm.

This is super thin so either high activity/cool day or low activity/warmer day is best use. The shirt also looks great so you can wear it around after a long day of moving around.

Keeps ya cool

I've been using this hoody for glacier travel for the last month which it may not be designed for but it crushes!
The fabric is light and breathable while still can keep the chill off.
Nice fit, not trim like it says but its just loose enough to breath and keep the torso cool.
The hood is a great feature and stays in place better than I expected and better than more trim fitting stretchy hoods.
the small pocket fits keys, GU, and the jacket.
I'm sure I'll love using this for running also.
One con though.. The hoody will get a funk even if worn over a layer faster than expected.

Great Active Hoody

The Echo Hooded Shirt is solid. Very comfortable, lightweight and breathable. The fit through the body is a little larger than I had anticipated it being for a Trim fit, but it's still a solid lightweight active hoody.
