Rated 2 out of 5 by from Missing the original Sol Cool My husband purchased these Hyalite hoodies as I have worn out last year’s Sol Cool Hoodies. (I have purchased a over a dozen of the sol cools and wear almost daily). Unfortunately, the Hyalite fabric is too heavy/hot for Florida and scratchy for my sensitive skin. Also, the Hyalite hoody does not provide the head and neck coverage as the older Sol Cools. I wish the old style was still available. (I am allergic to the bug repellant version).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and comfy! I always debate between a small and medium...I chose the small in this and the fit is closer to skin, which is fine by me - I'm planning on using this over a bikini for sun protection. If you are hoping to layer this over a tee, you might want to go one size bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am very happy I got this Hoody. It's perfect for hiking. The material is light and I cannot wait to take it out on the trail. I did size up, and am happy I did so. I am usually a size small, but got it in a medium, to allow for a little room, and to keep me a little cooler while hiking in the desert. Also if you would like to have a little room in the hood, I would size up too, but the hood is nice and roomy, can fit a good hat underneath if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sun protection hoody Wore several times hiking and climbing. Very light and protect from sun. In a hot weather, it could get a bit warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for hot humid climate Thicker than I thought it would be. I think it is meant to keep you warm. I bought the shirt for sun protection in a tropical climate so it might be too heavy for hot days. But I love the pink color and have been wearing it around. I think this would be better for cool days and good sun protection. It’s almost like the fabric is foamy, filled with air. The shirt feels very light but almost insulated in a way. I would wear this as a base layer when skiing or climbing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff Got the yellow and liked it so much I went back and got one of the blue-ish ones too. I fell in love with these backpacking over the summer- good sun protection, super breathable fabric that wicks sweat, the hood is super handy for getting the sun off your head and neck, and the thumbholes are a great touch- I don't think people realize how much the backs of their hands are exposed to direct sunlight throughout the day. Only thing that stops me from 5 stars is the fabric could be a bit smoother and softer, but that's not super noticeable once you have it on and are moving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from EXOFFICIO make the old model! This hoodie is OK but not near as nice as the model they used to make that had drawstrings in the hood and a high neckline with vent spaces in it. I believe they would sell a lot more of their old style hoodies. I believe it was model RN79137 or ESCC 116? I work in the Mojave desert and use sun hoodies daily - I had 3 of that old model. Unfortunately, they're wearing out after many years of use....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heavy for a sun shirt This fabric is heavier than a normal sun shirt and also it is short in the sleeves and length. I ordered the xl (I'm 5'9 and 165 lbs) because I have wide shoulders; the sleeves only go to my watch (even though they have thumb loops) and my stomach shows when I raise my arms. It's an okay shirt but too heavy for summer wear and too short for sun protection.
