Size Guide

Our lightweight hoodie is perfect for sun protection or a light layer of warmth. Rated UPF 40, this layer will keep you protected from the sun in the mountains or on the water. And as always, the Lightweight Hoodie is Made in the USA.

Made with Nuyarn® Premium Merino wool, it has the technical chops for long, sweaty days, while a touch of nylon adds durability to more rugged detours. And with real-world adaptability — thanks to a relaxed fix, below-the-waist coverage, and natural odor-resistant properties — everyday excursions become a part of the journey, not the destination.

Perfect Layer!

Was looking for a sun hoody that was as high percentage merino as possible as I will be riding the Tour Divide (6 weeks of bike touring from Canada to Mexico) and wanted something that could be worn day in and day out. My riding partner and I both got one of these to keep us protected and comfortable and in our preparation we've been so excited to have this layer. It's comfy, soft, and doesn't smell after a hard day. Love how lightweight it is. If you're looking for the perfect sun hoody, you've found it. Glad to have found Wuru and will probably pick up a bunch more items for our trip!

Great for backpacking!

This hoodie has been fantastic for a variety of weather conditions. I’ve used it in the desert southwest where it protected me from sun without making me hot. It was also perfect for a multi week backpacking trip across Scotland in the wind and rain. Never got stinky and the hoodie has held up well. I’m 5’4” and 135 and small was a great fit. Definitely recommend!

Love it!

I've worn this sun hoodie on a few hikes and trail runs already this summer and I absolutely love it! Lightweight and provides great protection from the sun. The blue is also beautiful! I'm tall so I sized up to a women's L and the fit is great. It's so versatile- can't wait to take it backpacking.

Hot, sunny day tested

Received this merino lightweight hoodie several weeks ago and had my first opportunity to field test it yesterday paddle boarding on a hot (85 degrees) and sunny day on a lake in South Carolina. It provided great sun protection without being hot or uncomfortable. The fabric is rather remarkable with a soft feel and sufficient air flow to be cool in full sun. Bought this hoodie for a Grand Canyon Colorado River trip next spring. Given its performance yesterday, I expect it will have a lot more field testing in the interim.

Love my light weight hoodie

Bought one for my son and then had to buy one for me. I ordered a medium - I am 5’4” and 130#. It is a good fit and can layer a long sleeved shirt under it. It gets breezy and cold here by the Pacific Ocean, so it works wells as a layer or on its own. It is amazingly warm and it breaths. I normally can not wear wool next to my skin — but this material works well for my touchy skin. It launders well. I hang it to dry. And the neck construction keeps my neck warm not like many hoodies that don’t cover your neck. Love love love this hoodie. Am wearing it now as I write this review. More colors would be great.
