1st...thanks to ULOG... I called in at the showroom after checking my desired sizes were available. Excellent service as usual (even if there's no drink machine or coffee offered for long distance travellers ) The hoody... Wow Very comfortable and an excellent relaxed fit. I bought it for its weight, sun protection and its ability to dry fast. I've used it for back packing, Fastpacking and trail running. PROS .. WEIGHT. Very light 127g for a Large. FIT. Very comfortable next to skin. Relaxed yet makes you look more athletic than you maybe? Hood is generous and let's air in to help keep you cool. It also does a good job of keeping sweat from your eyes. If you've a shaved head or a days growth... It will stick fast on your head top and this works great if the wind is blowing or your running. If you wear it down and it blows onto your shoulder... You don't notice it.. It's that soft and light. Thumb loops are good and best yet, the sleeves can be pushed up for venting or preventing soiling when cooking or pitching shelter. Neck is also comfortable FUNCTION. Very breathable yet oddly insulating depending on tempreture and activity. Works well on its own, keeps the worst of the sun off. Dries very quick if damp from sweat. Strange magic is... It breathes that well, and dries that quick.. I've yet to get damp.. I've had small damp spots on my downy athletic belly... But that's it. Add a thin fleece layer over or under and its a great combination when the tempreture gets below 8c. I use my Macpac Nitro alpha layer. Colours.. Good strong colours ULOG was the only place I could find my beloved Orange How does it wash? Great! Comes out of the machine after a gentle spin almost bone dry. Ideal for multi day treks where you need to launder as you go. CONS... KEEP IT AWAY FROM VELCRO. It will destroy its look and performance. The material is similar to the older Rab Interval shirts.

In the worst, I wore a water resistant jacket above it and wore a Brynje compression layer beneath... It performed admirably. When I got home, I weighed it to see how much rain/sweat it held... Less than 100g.... That's good going considering the exposure and suffaction it had under the jacket.... It really is proving to be more than just a one trick pony.
