Sun Hoodies

Rayward Apparel Sun Hoodies

A sun hoodie is one of the best clothing options when it comes to sun protection. They have all of the benefits of a long sleeve sun shirt plus a lightweight hood to be able to provide head and neck sun protection as well.

Our Sun Bound Collection of Sun Hoodies

Our men’s and women’s sun hoodies are a part of our Sun Bound collection of shirts – the collection that launched Rayward Apparel. It’s the first and one of the most comfortable UPF 50+ sun shirts you’ll ever wear. We were looking for something that was as protective as it is comfortable and we are very proud of where we landed with the Sun Bound Collection of shirts. The fabric is a perfect blend of cotton, bamboo, and lycra to make the shirt extremely soft and comfortable. The bamboo fibers are naturally UV repellent, helping to increase the UPF value while also adding an additional layer of comfort. The hood is made of a single layer of UPF 50+ fabric to cut down on weight and maximize comfort, providing excellent head and neck sun protection without any downside.

Fit And Features

The entire Sun Bound collection is designed to be more of an “athletic fit”. While it’s not designed to be skin tight, it’s designed to be a little tighter fitting than a standard shirt. This helps it to stay in place regardless of the activity. Additionally, it has sleeves that are a bit longer than a typical long sleeve sun shirt with a built in thumb loop. This allows you to pull the sleeves over your hands to help keep them protected. If you are looking for more of a relaxed fit shirt, please visit our shop page. The Crescent City Collection or the Shoreline Collection of men’s and women’s sun shirts are incredible options and relaxed fit.

The collection features a variety of different colors and styles and is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. It includes a short sleeve and long sleeve sun shirt, and also the sun hoodie. All utilize the exact same fabrics, but the hooded shirt is our personal favorite as it covers more skin than the others. Thanks to the additional coverage it limits your potential exposure to ultraviolet radiation.

Other Products To Protect Your Head And Neck

As far as UV exposure goes, the head and neck are often the most exposed areas of your body. However, a sun hoodie is not the only way to stay protected. While a quality hooded sun shirt is certainly one of the best options, there are still some other ways to ensure you are getting ample coverage:

A quality wide-brim bucket hat can go a long way in terms of sun protection. The brim not only provides head and neck sun protection, but also helps cover your face. If the sun is not directly overhead, it’s still possible to be exposed wherever sunlight is hitting your skin directly. However, it’s always better to have some coverage than none. So even when the sun is low, we’d still recommend a hat to help provide some shade.
