Leland on the Patagonia: Men's Sunshade Technical Hoody
When the air's so thick and hot you can barely breathe, you still need to cover up from the sun. Which is exactly why we created our ultimate sun shirt, the new Sunshade Technical Hoody, with its ultralight, airy 3.54-oz polyester double knit fabric and 45-UPF sun protection. Thumb holes pull the sleeves down to cover hands, built-in sun mask and hood fit easily over a baseball cap, reinforced stretch-woven inner forearms and side panels protect against push pole abrasion, and there's a convenient zippered pocket on the front left chest. In punishing heat, this hoody is the next best thing to cranking up the motor and running full tilt just to cool off.
Lightweight, quick drying 100% polyester jersey with 45-UPF sun protection

Hidden zip closure on lower front pocket; heat-pressed thermoplastic tape reinforces pocket construction and resists abrasion
Forearms and side panels reinforced with stretch-woven fabric for durable protection from constant contact with the push pole

Seriously...bought this shirt for my flats trip. Easily the best purchase for my trip. Blocked the sun, kept me cool and happy. Highly recommend it.
