I bought this (in white) to wear in the garden. I am on medication that sensitizes my skin to sun; plus, at age 57, I don't want to "leatherize" my complexion, so even in early morning and evening hours I've been accustomed to slathering on sunscreen.
With this hoodie and my Coolibar cotton sun gloves I now apply the sunscreen only to my lower face and a small portion of my neck in front. I put the hood up on my head and tie the cord so the hood covers most of my neck, then I put a sun hat over it to protect my forehead. The sleeves, hood, and gloves also keep the mosquitos from biting me (we live in Northern Minnesota where the mosquitos are the size of helicopters).
I probably look really dorky, but I don't care -- I'm fully protected. The white version of the hoodie which I ordered is very cool when I'm in direct sun, especially when I wear it as a shirt rather than as a cover. I really like the coverage this garment gives me. I'm planning to purchase another one in white and dye it to a color of my choice for wearing outside the home.
