We love the bear necessity hoodie. The fabric is so soft and I'm grateful to know our little one is safe from the sun in our summer outings!

Perfect for outdoorsy families

We are constantly on the go in the summer, whether it’s at the beach, hiking, nature preschool events, soccer practice etc. I take so much peace of mind knowing I have a safe option to keep my 3 month old safe from the sun. The hood is super great to put up for those 5 minute trips to the garden when I don’t want to find a hat. The zipper goes all the way to the bottom of the leg so it is super great for diaper changes. If I had to pick one outfit for my baby to wear, this would be it.

Summer must have

I could not find any other full body sun suit, I was so excited to find this one! It’s super soft, stretchy, and cool. It is perfect for hiking in the heat when your baby is strapped to you. It’s nice that it has mittens for baby claws. I will be ordering one for my baby each summer!

My two complaints are that the hood is really big and under the zipper there was some sharp fabric that scratched my baby’s chest. All I had to do was cut it back (it was extra sticking out).

Great Option

I live and Colorado and wanted a sun coverage/UPF option for my newborn as I get back outside after his summer birth. I was surprised while looking that this company was one of the few options that are available for infant (0-3 month) sized UPF that aren’t also swimwear material, which are also all mainly 3-6 mon sizing. Pricepoint is what I would expect to pay and feel like I got my money’s worth. Fabric is very soft, accurate color, and true to size from my new parent standpoint. He is 11.5lbs and 22(ish) inches right now and the 0-3 month fit great. We took this on a hot, 6 mile hike for its first time out and I felt like it performed well. He/we sweated in through the stomach part and it was relatively quick to dry. Will be recommending to other hiking babes!

Cons (all minor, would still purchase again)
-The hood is too big for his 85 percentile head (aka hood needs a cinch or less fabric)
- Legs are shorter then ride up. As an infant it would be nice to have some sort of foot coverage option since their legs are exposed in the carrier (I use an ergo).
-the zipper is more of a hefty zipper than I expected and I feel like it could be less intense but when it’s on, it’s not a big deal and I actually like that the two way zip.

For the record, I found this shop through google searches for infant UPF and sometimes don’t trust reviews so if you’re reading this I am a random shopper and paid for this full price, ha!

Love it! It’s so stretchy and soft. My son will be able to wear this for a long time. I only wish that the zipper didn’t go all the way down to the ankle, but I still love it. 10/10 would recommend.
Also, FAST shipping and the customer service was WONDERFUL!
