Essential Gear Upgrades Ushood's Top Picks for 2023

As outdoor enthusiasts, we understand the importance of reliable and high-quality gear. In 2023, Ushood, a renowned company based in the USA, continues to set the standard for outdoor and sports clothing. With a commitment to protecting your skin and a dedication to producing 100% American-made products, Ushood stands out in the market. Their range of designs and sizes ensures that every adventurer, from adults to youth, can find the perfect fit. Join us as we explore Ushood's top gear upgrades for 2023 and discover how they're revolutionizing how we experience the great outdoors.

Ushood Pinnacle Base Layer (Adult) - For Cold-Weather with Adjustable Mask & Hood

Your new favorite cold-weather layer is the Pinnacle base layer, which is as soft as butter. The UPF50+ sun protection, antimicrobial protection, thumb holes, and our unique mask/hood versatility are all great features. For cooler weather, Pinnacle is a good choice. Its 4-way stretch cloth lets air flow through and wicks away moisture, keeping you warm. A face mask/hood you can adjust gives you the most protection in a soft base layer that looks great. There are no gaps for cold to get in.


Ushood Ultra-Light Liteside Sun Shirt - UV Protection, Fitted Mask/Hood Design

Liteside sunshirts are the perfect light layer to keep you safe when it gets warmer. The cloth is breathable, quick-drying, and stretchy in 4 directions. It also protects against UV rays and germs so that you can wear it longer between washings. Our sun shirts have thumb holes and a custom-built-in mask and hood that fit snugly over your head and cover your whole face. This makes Liteside the perfect, easy layer to keep you safe and cool when it gets hot.

Available in Classic design and with a Ponytail opening.

Even though May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, you should always try to avoid getting it. The Liteside fabric from Ushood is UPF50+ and protects you from the sun's harmful rays without losing style or comfort.


Ushood Liteside Sun Shirt (Youth) - UV Protection, UPF50+ Fabric, Hood

It is very soft and light, and the UltraLight Liteside sun shirt is excellent for hot weather because it keeps you cool and protects your skin from UV rays. With a built-in face mask/hood, your kids will retain their face coverings at school or other events away from home. Kids will gladly wear this safety gear because it makes them "feel like a ninja!"

Now available with thumb holes, a ponytail opening, and our new XS size for toddlers!

While May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, prevention is essential every day of the year. Ushood's Liteside fabric is UPF50+ and provides vital protection from the sun's damaging rays without sacrificing comfort or style.


Ushood Liteside Sun Shirt with Ponytail Opening (Adult & Youth) - Hood Design

Introducing our new Liteside Sun Shirts with a ponytail opening at the back of the hood for comfortable wear with the hood up. Our stylish and functional Liteside sunshirts revolutionize outdoor comfort. The unique ponytail opening at the rear of the hood lets you enjoy the sun without sacrificing comfort. These shirts combine fashion and function for hiking, beachgoing, and other outdoor activities.

They offer maximum sun protection and let you express your style with high-quality materials. Boost your outdoor wardrobe with our Liteside sun shirts for superior comfort and style on every journey—adult and youth sizes.


Ushood Switchback (Adult) - Mid-Weight Breathable 4-Way Stretch Performance with Hood & UPF50+

Our new Switchback line provides superior comfort and protection as our Pinnacle base layers, but in a lighter weight, ideal for mild temperatures or people who "run hot." UPF50+ sun protection, antibacterial protection, moisture-wicking, breathable, 4-way stretch fabric, and a comfortable, breathable fit are all features of Switchback Ushoods. The Switchback collection is the first to include a ponytail opening in addition to our trademark mask/hood and thumb openings.
