Finally, a hoodie that meets all the craziness of Fall temperatures. I had ordered this hoodie with intentions to wear it as an undershirt in late fall when temps dip nightly into the 30’s. I was totally wrong. I recently wore this cozy hoodie by itself on a float trip in the north Georgia mountains in late September. Leaving early in the morning when the temps were in the mid-fifties, I felt very comfortable as we began the journey. I had brought a jacket as backup but never needed it.
By mid-afternoon, typical of southern Appalachian Fall days, the temperature rose into the upper 70s. I never was hot, but instead comfortable. The softness and stretchy material never pulled when casting flies all day. Like their other hoodie lines, the sleeves dried quickly when I stuck my hand in to release fish.
With a cloudless day of clear skies, I was glad of the UPF 50 protection. If I am not somewhat temperature comfortable when fly fishing, I find it hard to concentrate on the reason I am there in the first place. Wearing the correct clothing is part of my fishing arsenal and I will put this new hoodie to good use many times this fall.
