Every Season, Any Adventure: Ushood’s All-Weather Outdoor Apparel

Ushood® provides full and continuous coverage through custom-made base layers and sun shirts with attached masks/hoods. We're proud of the thorough testing and analysis we did to guarantee that the hood would fit comfortably under helmets without blocking the wearer's line of sight. No one enjoys having their peace disrupted by the intrusion of unwelcome elements through unsealed seams in their clothing. Ushood® has addressed this issue by creating a fully-covering, lightweight one-piece garment. Whether you're looking for a sun shirt for the summer or a base layer for the winter, Ushood® has you covered with our 100% Made in USA custom-made design and fabrics for any season, sport, or activity.

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.
