As a lupus patient, sun protection is critical for me. I bought this hoodie for spring/summer protection. It is much thinner than other hoodies and remains cool even in hot weather. I love it so much, I bought another one! I wear it literally every day. I'm also glad to buy a larger size than my regular size so my hands are covered most of the time. When I need to use my hands I can just pull or roll the sleeves. It's not bulky so it's no problem. I highly recommend this.
