No more sunburn!

  • Fit: True to size

I love this sun hoody! I have worn it on numerous backpacking trips and mtn bike rides and just took it on a multiday river trip- on my SUP! I fell in a lot with my pup jumping off the board every hour, but the echo fabric dried quickly and provided a nice light, cool layer when wet. It was awesome not having to worry about reapplying sunscreen every time I fell in! I bought this in a large because I have very long arms and wanted a looser fit as a hoody, but I also fit a medium

In the summer on the river I live in this hoody. Day in and day out this little baby gets a work out.

-Foldover mitts make arms feel like a T Rex, especially if you are a taller lady.
-side pocket barely fits a tube of sunscreen? It is quite odd.

Bottom line: look no further for all around sun protection on the mountain or down a river!

BEST sun hoody

Thanks Kate - I love mine too! The pocket on the side is perfevt for a few dollars or a chap stick, but not much more than that! It's so light and packable. A perfect sun layer!

Thanks for the review,

lightweight but good

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

This is very lightweight, but will be great when summer arrives here in NZ. It fits well and is a flattering cut.

Nice lightweight hoody

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

This is a great lightweight hoody - very good for warmer days hiking or being outside when you want full length sleeves. I do also wish it featured thumbholes.

The material is super soft and the design is nice because the neck is different than most shirts giving it a nice style to it.

The pocket is small but functional for a key or chapstick or old-school flip phone.

I thought the sizing was true to size given that it was labeled "trim fit"

Love this shirt

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

Love this shirt it is so light weight and comfortable. I wish the sleeves had thumb holes or were a little longer. But I have very long arms.

Awesome hoodie!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I am in love with this style and the lightweight fabric. The pocket and the fold over mittens are such a neat features. The red color is great. Since it dries quickly, the hoodie is great for activities on land or in sea. Great for just hanging out, too. Another cool thing us if you need to wash it, it will be dry and ready to wear the next day.

Super Lightweight!

The Echo is the kind of long sleeve you can easily sling around your waist while trail running, completely forget it is there, and then get to the breezy, cool peak you were running to and happily look down and remember you have a warm layer. It is so light and perfect for throwing in a pack or around your waist for biking, hiking, or running. Plus, it has one of my favorite OR women's features, which is these little hand warmers that extend out and around your hands from the cuffs. It's a really cool feature that I use all the time.
