Style# 1780791


A lightweight and technical fishing-inspired hoodie featuring both moisture-wicking and Omni-Shade™ Sun Deflector to ward off the sun’s harmful rays. Whether you’re out on the water or exploring dry land, you’ll be cool, dry, and protected. This comfortable classic is a summer must-have.

This product is crafted of our latest innovative fabric - Omni Shade™ Sun Deflector with UPF 50 sun protection. Those little sun-deflecting dots you see are specially designed to deflect sunlight away from the body so you feel cooler and stay protected. The dots reflect the sun's rays so well that the fabric will shimmer in any light. The stronger the light, the harder it’s working. And the soft, stretchy woven material feels amazing next to your skin while staying light and cool to the touch.

Women’s PFG Solar Shade™ Hoodie is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protects from the Burn I bought this hoodie for my wife, in particular to protect her from UV rays when she's outside. She loves everything about the product from the fit to the color. But most importantly, it kept her from getting burned when she spent a whole day in the sun. The thumb holes in the sleeves and the ponytail hole in the hood are great features that help to cover up and protect even more of her from the sun. She also likes the weight of the product. It kept her just the right temp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pony tail slit Wife and I wore our Solar Shade shirts to a parade. We were in direct sunlight for 2-3 hours and were comfortable despite the 85-90 degree heat. This particular shirt has the hood with slit which seems to not only protect against biting mosquitoes and flies but also helps with visibility when turning her head; her eyesight isn't obscured by the hood when she moves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed I fish a lot and was always wearing long sleeves to block the sunshine but during harsh summer times it's just too hot to wear long sleeved clothes and I hate sunblock lotions. My friend who lives ourdoors recommended this Omni shade to me and omg...I'm so impressed! This long sleeved hoodie I ordered here in color lollipop is very lightweight and cute. I never felt so comfortable and cool under the sun. Thank you Columbia for saving my fishing life in the summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves WAY too long I love this shirt! But, the sleeves are way, way too long. I originally ordered a small as I am a size 4/6. The small was too tight across the bust. So I reordered a medium and it fits perfect, except for the sleeves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my ginger skin! I ordered this shirt online a couple of months ago and it has been my favorite shirt since! I am outside for work so I needed something to protecting my fair skin from the Alabama sun whithout giving me heat stroke. This shirt is perfect for that! Keeps me covered and cool! I ordered a large blue shirt because I like things to be loose and it fits true to size. The past reviews are right about its shiny presence, so keep that in mind if you aren’t into the shine. Personally I love it! Overall great shirt and am about to order the other two colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shirt...but.... A little large fit in the underarm area. I do not like a wide crew neck so this shirt is not for me. On a positive note, I do like the length of the shirt. It covers the buttocks so it's a great length. And the feel of the shirt is great. But, overall, the fit doesn't look good on me so it will be returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoping it will be cool enough I bought this top for wearing on a Caribbean vacation because I am sun-sensitive. I'm hoping it will be cool enough. So far, I've worn it in 80-degree weather, and it was a bit warmer than I had hoped, given its Solar Shade feature. I'm crossing my fingers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but I returned The material is ightweight and the fit was nice. However, the shirt has tiny white dots all over it (presumably some material that reflects the sun), and the effect of these dots was that the shirt looks shiny or shimmery. I think it looked a bit juvenile because of this and returned it.
