Shifting gears here a bit, but I was amazed how much sun protection that Captain Carl Ball was wearing on this trip. It has become serious business and they work hard at staying protected from the sun. For the first time in my life I was trying to stay more covered and took along the Patagonia Sun Hoody. It is really comfortable and covered the sides of my face from the sun, which in turn allowed me to spot more tarpon. added bonus.

We have a solid lineup of UPF rated styles TP and the Sun Hoody is fast becoming a mainstay. The Sunshade Shirt, Sun Hoody and Sun Mask all share the same 30 UPF fabric package. Add in the Sun Glove and you're covered. The side benefit of this gear is that it's good against bugs too.

Good suggestion. I'll pack it for my trip to Alaska this year. BUGS!!!!!

...if I may suggest, depending on when you'll be in AK, consider the R1 Hoody as well......I literally only took mine off twice during a month long trip to AK last year, and that was to wash it. More form fitting than the Sun Hoody, warmer, thumb holes help keep bugs off the backs of your hands, hood keeps you warm during the day, is your hat when sleeping, and keeps the bugs/sun off when they're out. If you're doing a lot of backcountry hiking, fabric is tougher than the Sun Hoody as well, won't get caught on as much brush. If you'll mainly be easy access/floating during the AK summer, Sun Hoody will rock though too.

Good suggestion D. R1 is a good fabric for Alaska. The tightly woven face is better suited to resist snagging in the wilds plus the grid texture provides warmth......but for Biscayne Bay and other sunny haunts, the 4.3 oz looped knit fabric with activated carbon layer used for the Sunshade and Sun Hoody is the ticket.
