I have not really worn this yet in warm weather, so I'm not sure how well this works in keeping the sun off. The material is different from anything I have worn in the past. I believe the weight will be an asset in the warmer weather, and I am looking forward to trying this out at that time. Size is good. I am 5'7" 125 lbs. the small fit fine, even with a tshirt under.

Great water top
I was looking for a hoody to wear out on the water. Sure I'll get wet (it's not waterproof) but that's not a problem. I wanted some protection from the sun. Not as loose as some of the tops from Patagonia have been this year but does have room enough so I'm not sweating after paddling a long distance. The length is good. Stays down even when seated in the boat. The thumb opening is great. It's a pain to use other long sleeved tops without it. Medium worked. I'm 5'9" and 140.

I bought this hoping to be able to wear it as a cover up from the sun in the summer but I'm afraid it will be a bit hot. However, the color is lovely. The fit is a bit loose, but the fabric drapes well so does not look too baggy (I'm 5-5" 120lbs and bought a small, xs would work too).
