You won’t want to kick off your summer without the OR ActivelceTM Spectrum Sun Hoodie. Outdoor Research has outdone itself with this versatile warm-weather layer that offers UPF 50+ protection while keeping you cool on those hot summer adventures.

The Spectrum’s thermo-regulating and self-cooling ActiveIce technology makes for a cool-to-the-touch feel. ActiveIce actually adjusts to your body temperature, preventing overheating. How, um, cool is that?

Moreover, the OR Sun Hoodie is made of polyester/spandex fabric which is super soft, remarkably lightweight, and nice ‘n stretchy for full range of motion. No matter how active you are while wearing this top, the torso stays put when you reach overhead. And best of all: no chafing!

A three-panel hood and thumbholes are other thoughtful details in this quick-drying hoodie’s design.

Both men’s and women’s sizes are available in a variety of colors.

MSRP: $79.00 •
