Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing piece of clothing for any climber I was hesitant to buy this at first, but I now bring this to every crag session and long sunny multipitch climb. It breathes incredibly well, and has saved my butt so many times when I forget to put on sunscreen. It also makes for a great mosquito repellent shirt for those who climb in humid and tropical areas. The hood is super clutch in keeping my ears and neck from getting burned. I just wish BD offered this in brighter colors like Patagonia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!! Got it for everyday wear, on or off the rock. Fits great. I am a 5’6” stocky build and the small fits like a glove with a t shirt under it. Material is great against the skin and so far still smells new with no wash yet, after general wear. I haven’t worn it during activity yet. I love it so much I want to keep it as a comfy shirt after a hard day working out and not able to shower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sun Hoody!! I've used this hoody for the last several months now, and it's great! It is super lightweight and you can feel the sun protection. It's my skin protection for desert sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit - Perfect for high country sun I bought this as a lightweight sun screen. Hot sun fishing or climbing and this keeps me from burning. It's light and packable. I recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and extremely comfortable! I have had two of these shirts now and will buy another when my current one wears out. Lightweight and comfortable. I wear it almost daily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable I bought this shirt for climbing and kayaking when it is hot and sunny. This shirt is cool even when it is hot and provides great sun protection. It would also make a great base layer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Need it! Living in southwest Colorado(Durango) this is my favorite light hoody. Whether its a high country mtb ride, climbing 14ers, climbing, paddle boarding or just grabbing a few after pints at the bar this is my go-to for sun and wind protection. I will probably even pair this with my first light puffy for those spring ski touring days. the is a must need in the clothing quiver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sunshade, surprisingly durable I've recently returned from a 3 week trip to the granite climbing of Spitzkoppe, Namibia. I wore my Alpenglow Hoody for all the muttipitch routes. Despite the wide cracks and rough granite it performed excellently and has little sign of wear. The hood fits over my Petzl Scirocco helmet and does a good job of shielding your neck and face from the sun.
