      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

question Sun hoodies... who makes them?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for something to cover my skin while crossing snowfields in warm to hot conditions to protect from sunburn but not for insulation. Patagonia used to make one but it's no longer available.

 

Looking for light fabric, light color, hood, cut for climbing. Basically a white Capaline 1 with a hood. I have other hoodies (R1, merino, stretch synthetic, etc.) but they are warmer than what I am looking for.

I'm pretty fond of travel shirts from Coolibar--lots of colors, light fabric, breathable. Lots of folks also like the Columbia one too.

 

The OR Ensenada is very warm, too warm for daily use in my opinion.

I've got a white and olive colored Patagonia sun hoodies that I use in the backcountry and when I was consulting at Owens Lake (high desert). Probably my favorite piece(s) of gear after my Squamish wind hoody.

 

Don't know if they still make them.
