Columbia Women's PFG Solar Shade Hoodie Green - Size - Small. This hoodie would look great on you in a social media post while you're holding a huge fish.Too bad you're home sick from work.Yes, sitting at a desk all day can be excruciating when the sun's out and the fish are biting. Or even when they aren't biting. Columbia's PFG Solar Shade Hoodie is made for those days. You don't want to go back to work with a sunburn that says you were out on the water all day instead of in bed nursing the flu.
