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.

I never leave reviews but this is truly my new favorite piece of gear. It fits slightly slim but generally TTS. The color is great (I got the green), fabric feels wonderful. I purchased this on sale but would honestly get another at full price if more bright colors were offered. I've worn it on a few warm Colorado hikes (high 80s, very sunny) and it's done a great job of staying cool. Have not experienced any issues with washing so far. This was exactly what I was looking for in a merino hoodie!


We're glad that your hoodie is performing perfectly as intended.

Customer feedback like yours shows us we're doing everything right.

So soft and comfortable!

I have had my hoodie for at least two years now (I got the orange one). I have worn it everywhere; I've used it as a sun shirt and it works great and feels cool because it's super thin. I've worn it skiing as my base layer. I've worn it running on cool mornings when I need something just a little warmish on my arms. I don't baby it and it looks new still. I bought several other items after that and they are all just the best of the wool items I own. They're worth it and beautiful.

Comfortable & great fit

I ordered my normal (medium) size. While I can wear small or medium, I usually prefer a medium fit (not snug); and the sizing for this shirt was great. The salmon is beautiful--I have no other clothing in that color, so a nice change. Also prefer the thumb loops sewn in the sleeves vs the normal slits, Wore it hiking once, but haven't yet tested on a hot day. Happy with this purchase!
