I was super worried about the size
With all the reviewers saying it was too small, I was super worried about the size. The review that helped me the most listed the size and had pictures so here you go. I'm 5'6", 140 lbs, and have a rectangle/Apple shape. I ordered the medium and it's bigger than I expected. I'm wearing a Venus turquoise swim cover as the bottoms. I was hoping it would match this rash guard. The jacket is super stretchy and the hood hangs over my forehead which may block my eyes from the sun.

Skin protection is super important for me as I have an autoimmune disorder (Lupus). I hesitated before buying this jacket because it is so inexpensive. But I decided to try it and am so glad I did! I waited a few weeks before reviewing just to be sure it was as great as I thought. It is!
First, it feels really cool on. Both temperature and the feeling of the fabric.
Second, it actually works! I put it through lots of situations. For my final test I went hiking for 3 hours and only put sunscreen on my face....in Texas. Y'all, that was a HUGE scary leap of faith for me. No sunburn. Not even a little pink or tan.
Lastly, you can't feel the sun baking through your soul. I don't know where y'all live, but here, the struggle is REAL. I always wear long sleeves, year round, even when it's 106 degrees out. I have to, Lupus doesn't play around with UV rays. So, just driving to work in the morning I will feel the sun penetrate through the tinted windows, right past my jacket like it's not even there, and scorch my skin,bit seriously burns. But this thin little white jacket stays completely cool. I never feel the heat from the sun, even when it is shining right in the window. I don't know how it's possible but, for me, it's a miracle.
I will say, the white jacket does get dirty immediately and as previous posters stated, it won't wash out. So your opinion/rating will depend on why you want the jacket. I say it's still a five star item because I bought it to protect me from the sun. It more than delivered, it far exceeded my expectations. I feel like this will be the best summer I've had in a long time. I will get to actually leave my house and not worry about a flare up or heat stroke. I'll be purchasing several more in different colors.

Loved it! Wore it on th beach because I have lupus and looked like a fool but didn’t get burned! Lightweight, water wicking, and I didn’t get too hot in it. Fit as expected and I loved the thumb holes!!

I question if it is truly UPF 50 because you can see the sun through it and I would not expect that in a garment that protects you from the sun. It frays easily so does not look like it will last long. I've washed it only once and let it hang dry. If it is UPF 50, it is a great summer hoodie because it feels very cool even on a hot day.

Make sure you get the right size
I bought the white jacket with a hood. The reviews said that they run small so I bought a large. I should have bought a medium! This needs to stay on in the pool or lake, so it needs to be somewhat right. Not only the chest is loose but the arms as well. I am an 8-10 5'5 150lbs 34c. I recommend you get a medium. I would have exchanged it, but they were out of the hooded option and I like having a hood.

Would definitely recommend.
I love this zip-up hoodie rashguard! Perfect for covering up during whitewater sports, fits snugly under my PFD. I normally wear a small but ordered a medium and it is a little bit roomy, but since I may layer it over another rashguard on cold days I'm not returning it. I'd say you're safe ordering your normal size. Well-made, super soft, great piece.

Love this! I'm on the boat constantly and this will be perfect for lobster season and fishing here in Florida. Super cute, fits perfect and gives tons of protection. I'm 160lbs, 5'3 and a small fits great.

While this was a little looser than I expected, I did not mind at all. It was comfortable to wear in water and even just as an athletic hoodie. I got compliments on the color too. Definitely a great buy for the price! I'll be running in it come spring time :)

Next time would just order my regular size...
Based on other reviews stating this item runs small, I purchased the X-Large instead of my usual Med/Large. But I should have ordered the Large size, as X-Large was just too "sloppy, big" on my 5'9", 155lb frame. I needed it for a trip, so didn't have time to return/exchange item before I left. Otherwise, hoodie is very lightweight and comfy. Love the sun protection factor!

The jacket fits me better than expected
I'm female 5'4" 150 lbs, and purchased size Medium. The jacket fits me better than expected. I normally wear regular L shirt/sweater, but this medium size jacket still have some room left. The material feel very cooling. I'm very sensitive to the sun and have serious issue with sun burn, so this light weight cooling jacket really help me a lot. I just hope there are more nice design so I can buy more. The price is fair too. I've seen much more expensive brands, but work equally the same. I really recommend anyone who want to protect their skin from sunburn to own one of this jacket. You will find it very useful during Summer.
