Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good fit I bought this a few weeks ago for summer sun protection in the Sierra Nevada. I love the fit, the look, the feel! The neckline stays high and the hood is good over a hat or under a helmet. One bummer, however, after 2 washes the seems on the outside of the sleeves have started to pill and fray-definitely lower quality than I expected out of this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit--a few suggestions Highly recommended. PROS: It did a great job protecting me from sunburn on a 7 day trip on glaciers and snow in bright sun. I am 5'4", 120 and the small fits perfectly. I was pleasantly surprised how little this smelled at the end of a trip compared to other synthetics I've tried. The hood also fits nicely over a helmet. CONS: The hood has no drawstring so blew off frequently in windy conditions. I'd love to see a cinch option. I'd also have appreciated a pocket and/or thumbholes. It does take a very long time to dry unless in direct sunlight. I washed it one evening and it was still quite wet the following morning and took much longer even than my softshell pants did to dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sun hoodie I’ve worn many sun shirts for work but this is by far and away the best. I wore it for the first time climbing up Long’s and it did not disappoint. The material is thin and breathable, the hood fits nicely under a helmet. The fit isn’t the most flattering on me, but that doesn’t bother me at all. I was worried the silver pine color would be see through because it’s so light and I don’t like wearing a layer beneath a sun shirt, but it wasn’t, even with a black sports bra. I’m 5’4” and 105 lbs, the XS fit well. I also wear an XS in the Alpine Start hoody. Highly recommend the two together for climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sun Shirt Out There I have had this about two months, I have worn it every weekend since I got it. I am pretty pale, so a sun shirt is a requirement for me in the summer. I skied in it, climb, and hiked half dome with it on. I have a Patagoina sunshade shirt as well, but I prefer the fit of the Alpenglow and need to order another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sun hoody I use this over 100 days a year as a professional mountain guide and it's amazing! Ideal baselayer for climbing and mountaineering; light, breathable, dries quickly, sun protection, there's really nothing to complain about here and I plan to get another once i wear through this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best women's sun hoody on the market! I shopped around for several weeks looking for a super-lightweight sun-protection hoody for long distance hiking - I'm not a fan of the more common "button up" UPF shirt options, and wanted something with a hood that I could also use to cover my neck/sides of my face. I settled on the Alpenglow hoody for two main reasons: 1) Material. Surprisingly, a lot of "sun hoodys" are made with fairly heavy material. The Alpenglow hoody is not - it's lightweight and breathable but still substantial enough to hold up to wear and tear. 2) Fit. I have the BD Alpine Start jacket (which, I will also say, is a far superior wind shirt compared to others I've tried! It's awesome!) so I knew BD products fit me well. I'm 5'6" 140 lbs with a muscular build and wear a size Small, which fits perfectly though I wouldn't want it any smaller. I love that BD makes their women's products long enough in the torso. After using the hoody on a John Muir Trail trek this fall I have to say it performed wonderfully. There were no contact spots with my pack where seams rubbed, etc. It got a *little* ripe by the end of my trip but EVERY synthetic product will, and I couldn't find a suitable merino substitute for this hoody! I love this product and when I wear it out to its death I will gladly purchase another. Fit, material, quality, color, etc. - all are great! (PS I'd highly recommend this + the Alpine Start jacket as a layering system. Perfect for playing in the mountains.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Just add thumb holes. LOVE this product. I use it on river trips, climbing trips, and backpacking. It's super light and doesn't get too smelly after multi day use... I would add thumb holes to the next model though to add sun protection to the backs of my hand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for warm temps, breathable The shirt has a nice breathable material which allows you to keep your skin covered from the sun's rays. I am fair skinned and do a significant amount of mountaineering so staying covered is important. I have found that when the temps are below 70 or perhaps 80 with a breeze, the shirt does fine. Much warmer than that, and it feels like I'm wearing a long sleeve shirt on a hot day. Sure, it stays breathable, but don't expect it to feel weightless. The bottom seam is a little tighter than the rest of the shirt which is a weird design, perhaps to keep the shirt from riding up. Sometimes it rides up and bunches beneath my backpack waist strap which is annoying. I also find that the snuggness down low, prevents some airflow which might otherwise exist. The hood is nice but does not stay up in any sort of wind so I wind up having to hold it up over my ears and neck which is kind of a pain. All in all, a good shirt for the purposes, but I'm not sure I found the best shirt that exists for this end.
