Great versatile layer

Wore this sun hoodie on a recent backpacking trip, it kept me very comfortable while moving. Super lightweight, but doesn't feel fragile. Love the style of the hood and the thumb holes. Excited to try it out in warmer weather.

Most breathable sun hoodie I've tried

I've used it several times

I have worn this hoodie on three hikes since I received it. Of the two other brands I own, this is by far the most breathable and most comfortable fabric, and has become my new favorite. It is also much less see-through than I expected, and launders well. Be sure to go by the size chart! I didn't; I just ordered the same size (large) as my other two hoodies expecting the same fit. This size large is a TRUE size large, and even the sleeves are long on me (for reference, I'm 5'3" 135#). This is my new favorite hoodie, even though it's big on me!

Love this shirt, wish it was in different colors!!

I've had my echo sun hoody for at least 4 years and it's still one of my go-to adventure shirts. Love the ponytail opening and breathable yet protective material. I've hiked in this shirt anywhere from 1 mi to 20+ in a day. I only wish OR would make the women's shirt in some muted earthy tones (like the men's) !! I would keep buying them, but I'm sick of neon and grey!

Allllmost perfect...

I like this hoody so much I have it in 6 different colors! It's soooo comfortable and extremely lightweight. I'm 5' tall, about 120-125 lbs, with a curvy, athletic figure and the size XS fits well. Overall it's not too loose and not too tight, just slightly fitted on my muscular arms). It's quite long, but I just let it bunch up a bit and it looks just fine. (I also bought one in a small when I feel like having a bit of looser fit and it also looks great!) The only thing I don't like about it is that it's not as breathable as I'd like it to be when doing high output activity in hot weather. I'm one of those people who overheats really easily and I often find myself wishing so badly that this hoody had a quarter zip! This would honestly be the PERFECT long sleeve layer if it only had a quarter zip to dump heat when needed. I have 4 of the old Outdoor Research Flyway hoodies, which have a1/4 zip, and they have been my absolute favorite long sleeve tops to wear for years, but the Echo is just so much lighter. Merging the two would be my dream long sleeve shirt! It would make the Echo so much more versatile.

Solid shirt

I have two of these shirts and really like them. They are cool even on hot days, fit true to size (5'1", 130lb, I wear a small), and are a solid price when you can snag them on sale. Only lost a star for durability -- the seams on the inner arm tend to snag on back pack straps, harness; I've gotten a few holes (none of which impact the use of the shirt) after a season of climbing/scrambling. All in all, I will defo keep using them and then likely replace them when they are spent!

Inconsistent sizing/material

Confused because the echo shirts from two seasons ago had a bit of a thicker material. This one is very thin, see-through, and holds smell, which is unfortunate because I purchase them for working outdoors.

best hoodie ever

I have tried many hoodies and this is definitely my favorite ultralight. Form-fitting but not too tight. Crazy lightweight with great wind protection. Nice long sleeves with super comfortable thumb inserts. Hood fits like a glove and has fantastic neck coverage. I purchased in gray and white.

Saw this in a store and liked the fit and material but did not buy at the time. Saw later on OR website and decided to purchase it. Appears to be not the same material and size. I did check to make sure I was purchasing the same one and correct size. I love OR products but disappointed with the inconsistency of the same product

Best sun hoodie ever!

I love this sun hoodie. It is so nice and light and the hood actually stays up and protects you from the sun. I love that I can stick my ponytail out the back and actually keep my hood up in wind and skiing downhill, it does not fly off. I always feel so hot with a hood on but this one is not too bad. I will never buy another sun hoodie, these are the best. I highly recommend!
