SKI Magazine Weekly Gear Review Selection
"...I’ve put [the] 100-percent spun polyester top through its paces during chilly morning runs and variable-temperature mountain hikes, and it hasn’t disappointed, moving moisture away to keep me cool and providing warmth when my inner furnace powered down..." Read more
Whether hiding from the sun’s UV damage high in the alpine, weaving through trees on your weekend trail run, or working on your roll cast, the Solstice will keep you cool and covered up. The oversized hood blocks harmful UV, and sleeves with thumbholes and chafe-free seams provide all-day protection and comfort. Also ideal as a lightweight baselayer in cooler temps, the highly versatile Solstice Hoody will quickly become a mainstay in your layering system.
FABRICS: 100% Spun polyester

I was really pleasantly surprised by the fit. It was relaxed yet not overly baggy. Fitting yet did not restrict movement. On one occasion used it in a whole day of light rain and it dried really fast. The hood also stayed on in all activities. Was sufficiently warm in high activities and cool in tropical weather. I also appreciated that the sleeves had room to accommodate my watch - no more digging around to check the time.
Super soft and somehow seems to keep me cool when wearing in the bright, hot sun.
Bought this for my wife. Excellent functionality and design. Material is soft, comfortable, and drys pretty fast. Ended up buying one for myself as well and am planning to pick up another. Great hoody! Keep up the good work.
I used this hoody for 10 days climbing in the alpine in the Wind River Range. It held me together thru sun, wind, snow and ice. The hood is so well designed for helmets, and you can cinch the hood down any direction you need it. The fabric is light weight and not only wicks away moisture, but stayed pretty stench free from day 1. The teal color is awesome (I LOVED having a color other than pink and magenta to choose from!!!) and was a big hit with other friends on my trip. I will absolutely buy from Bight Gear again, and can't recommend the gear enough!! Thanks for making a great product for us gals to wear!!
Love the Solstice Hoody! Bought it for a five day mountaineering trip that I needed sun protection and a base layer. I also needed the hood to fit over my helmet. Very functional and super comfy! Highly recommend for your next adventure!!
