Pros Very comfortable, breathable, functionalOff-trail style, dobbyweave fabric wears well, ideal length, good overall sun protectionGreat value, lightweight, very breathable, looks good off-trail, excellent comfortGood fabric stretch and movement, streamlined features, very lightweight and packableComfortable, good sun coverage, versatile, water-ready, lightweight
Cons Comfort at the cost of durabilityTight in the yoke, expensive, not as breathable as some competitorsOnly UPF 40, doesn't pack as well as others, difficult sleeve-capture tabsTight fit, feel of buttons on skin, collar point snaps, stretchy fabrics lose UPF+ protection soonerNot as durable as some options, too minimal for some
Bottom Line The comfort of this hooded sun shirt along with its sun protection make it quite the catchA 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 namesMore pack-friendly than wallet-friendly, this shirt is designed for climbers, but also works for fast-packers and light travelersThis hoody is a great base layer, sun-blocker, and daily shirt for summer
