REI Bolongo Sun Hoodie - Men'sis rated4.3333out of5by6.
Rated5out of5byfromSo hard to findI have been looking for a nice, lightweight, and breathable summer sweater and they are hard to find. I want to be able to cover up from the sun with a hoodie and long sleeves without sweating like crazy. Sunscreen sometimes makes me all sticky on hikes or at the lake, but I want sun protection so I don't get burned, and this works pretty well. It is basically a large spandex sweater expect breathes better and doesn't get so hot. It is warm and I would say that the sizing runs kind of big, which I prefer; you don't want this thing tight when you are on hot, sunny hike. I really like the little pocket on the chest, but I would have preferred a kangaroo pouch. I wear it without an undershirt because it feels good and is soft, and it is very stretchy and durable. I am glad I got it.

Rated5out of5byfromMy new favorite backpacking shirtGreat shirt, especially since I got it on sale. It is now my favorite high Sierra backpacking shirt. Keeps the sun off my arms, is not to hot while hiking, yet warm enough while resting at passes.

Rated2out of5byfromLUKE WARMBought on sale as light weight sun protection for the beach due to the hood. Seams are a little uncomfortable to wear without an undershirt, but still wearable. Oregon coast can be chilly so this is fine. Not warm enough for a really cold day and too heavy for a really hot day. Don't really care for the giant logo, but as it was on sale...

Rated5out of5byfromAwesome6-3, 210lbs. Ordered the XL and the L. Sometimes I need an XL for the sleeve length. The L worked great. Hood protects my neck from the sun.

Rated4out of5byfromA good UV baselayerI've been wanting a quality wicking base-layer with a hood for a while, but most options are much more expensive. The Bolongo shirt is a quality product. Nice stitching, tight weave, doesn't bind in the creases. I question the colors though. If it were intended for outdoor wear in the sun you think a dark blue wouldn't even be in the running for choices, and I always feel the sun a little more on the grey strips on my green version. Sun clothes = light colors, guys! Other than that it's been a great garment.
