Pros Inexpensive, bombproof, great coverage and sun protectionOff-trail style, dobbyweave fabric wears well, ideal length, good overall sun protectionGreat value, lightweight, very breathable, looks good off-trail, excellent comfortVery comfortable, breathable, functionalComfortable, good sun coverage, versatile, water-ready, lightweight
Cons Durability comes at the cost of breathability, heavier than other hooded sunshirtsTight in the yoke, expensive, not as breathable as some competitorsOnly UPF 40, doesn't pack as well as others, difficult sleeve-capture tabsComfort at the cost of durabilityNot as durable as some options, too minimal for some
Bottom Line A great value that packs the essentials to keep you covered from the sun's raysA comfortable, good looking, feature-packed, and versatile button-upAffordable and super light for its feature selection, this shirt competes with the most technical outdoor brand namesThe comfort of this hooded sun shirt along with its sun protection make it quite the catchThis hoody is a great base layer, sun-blocker, and daily shirt for summer
