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.

Love it!

I love the hoody. It feels great and is not too warm and not too cold. It works well against sun and most mosquitoes/sand flies. I usually always wore tsirts when hiking, but the hoody now replaces these, especially when I'm on long hikes. It takes quite a long time to smell bad (comparable to e.g. icebreaker) and then you can wash it in cold river water (without soap). It dries quickly. The material is thin and you have to be a little bit careful, but I don't know of any nice&thin merino shirt where this isn't the case. First I wanted the blue hoody but it was sold out. However, it only took two days for me to fall in love with the orange color. I would also like to thank the customer service for quickly processing my request after something went wrong. In summary I am extremely happy with the hoody, its simple, fitts well (have it in S), looks good and does what it needs to do :)

Great lightweight hoodie

1. It's lightweight, warm, and sweat dries quickly.
2. Thumb loops work well for me. A bit concerned about their durability, but look simple to repair, if needed.
3. Love the scuba hood -- best simple hood I've found!
4. It's sewn in USA! It does not cost 2x as much as those not made here!!
