In high heat and humidity, our Tropic Comfort Hoody II is the next best thing to a cool breeze. The stretchy, ultralight 94% polyester/6% spandex fabric provides 50+ UPF sun protection, wicks away perspiration and stays fresh with Polygiene® permanent odor control; it also floats over the skin with a relaxed silhouette and soft, cotton-like feel so you can stay comfortable and focus on the fishing. The generous hood design fits over a baseball cap, while longer sleeves with thumb holes cover the hands for additional protection in heated conditions. All told, it’s a simple, one-piece, pullover sun solution for anglers who’d rather not mess around with gloves, neck gaiters and broad-brim hats. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
I fugured if this could work in the Florida Keys at keeping the sun out why could it not do the same in the Midwest. I love to kayak and standup paddle board and was always having to be so afraid of getting sunburned going out during midday. It was such a relief to be able to go out at noon today on a 100 degree day on Big Spirit Lake and be able to enjoy the lake. Full sunlight for 1 hour at noon and no sunburn. It was great. It was a extra layer to have on but very comfortable. My wife loves to wear it to take the kids out on the boat also.
