Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobster9 The Hood
The Shirt is great, but I wish there was a way to keep the hood on/closed.

I salt water fish a lot, mostly fly fish. I like hoodies because they keep the sun off my head and actually allow me to see better through the water when sight fishing. I particularly like this one. I found the material soft and comfortable. The longer sleeves protect my hands without wearing sun gloves. Recently returned from a week bone fishing in Bahamas and I wore it almost everyday. Dries so quickly can wash in shower every night. I own several hoodies and this is my favorite, very functional.

Got one of the blue and one of the metal color. The blue looks just like what you see on the website (Still didn't like the color). The metal color sadly had some sort of sickly mint green tinge to it. The fabric rips easily and that was just going outside walking the dog when bugs were out in full force. I can't imagine taking this out on a trip camping or anything else for that matter.
The only thing that was great about this hoodie is that it definitely keeps the bugs off of you. They really need to work on some better colors (other than ugly pastel) and use better fabric.

I own several of these hoodie-style UPF shirts from different makers, and of course this LL Bean brand ranks at the top.
As always, the quality is top notch and the fit is great. For those who have never tried a UPF hoodie, you're missing out; the fabric is light and airy (MUCH cooler than a t-shirt) so when wearing the hood, you hardly even know its there. More importantly, you'll hardly even know the sun is there on those hot days.
My only complaint about this garment and why it gets 4 stars and not 5, is that it comes with one small pocket which is placed at the shirt's tail and on the backside. The pocket seems worthless to me and not sure this was done??
Hey Bean, a vertical chest pocket large enough to accommodate today's smart phones would be a nice addition.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dlrl cheap fabric
I was really disappointed in the quality of the fabric. It is a very cheap, STIFF polyester. Very tight weave too. It doesn't breathe at all.
The cut is weird too. The arms are about 4 or 5 inches too long. And, the cuff is so loose, it falls past the ends of your fingers, way past.
I REALLY wanted to like this, because of the insect repellent, but I am sending it back anyway. The fabric is so uncomfortable I know I'll never wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jiggafrank great shirt.
i love it! i got it for offshore fishing in the gulf. but it would work as a base layer as well. im 5`9 175 lbs, at first i got the medium but it was tight so i returned it and got the large, perfect. when the sun heats up i just throw the hood on for coverage. ill buy another one.
