Outdoor Research Playa Hoodie - UPF 50+, Zip Neck (For Women)
Closeouts. Outdoor Research's Playa hoodie is a perfect layer for heart-pumping activities in chilly weather. It's made from lightweight, smooth and super-stretchy performance fabric that moves with you and won't hold on to moisture. Elasticized ruching at the sleeves lends style and texture, and a zip pocket at the upper-left sleeve adds convenient, secure storage.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Janet from San Francisco on Wednesday, July 19, 2017I just read "lightweight" but missed the part where it says "in chilly weather". I think I would describe this as mid-weight because it is a bit thick. It'll be a great Spring or Fall hiking shirt (as right now it's 80 degrees where I live). The hoody looks great on your head, the blue color is bright and pretty and as pictured. The rushing sleeves, however, I like the look but can feel a bit itchy and they are too much thread and stitches on the inside. Thumb holes are a big plus as well. It's a quality shirt with a great design.
Reviewed by Momof3ontherun from Illinois on Sunday, May 28, 2017I've only worn this hoodie once but I love it already. I wore it while hiking at a slow pace (many young kids were involved) with friends on a sunny, mid-70's day and it was just perfect. The UPF 50+ kept me protected from the sun but the fabric is lightweight enough that I never felt too hot. I had purchased intending to wear more as a mid-layer for cold weather activities as the item description suggests, but I now anticipate getting a lot more use out of it as a lightweight sun protection outer layer in warm weather. I can imagine wearing over just about anything, including swimwear. I don't think the zip pocket would fit my iPhone 6, but it would definitely fit an ID and some cash, a key/keycard, or other such small items. The blue color is gorgeous. I need to check if STP still has other colors available. I'm 5'6" 140 lbs and ordered a medium and the fit is perfect.
