    Exactly!@# That's why they have extra buttons sown on the inside.

    I have used mostly Columbia products as I find their fit and finish a lot better than most.

    Last year, I purchased "Breathe like a fish" shirts with netting sewn into the body and underarm area. They are made from SPF material and you can even get them made with the scarf sewn in. I didn't particularly like the shirt with the scarf sewn in but they sold me a scarf that I keep in my back pocket.

    Their scarves are kind of nice because they have netting sewn into the nose and mouth area.

    I just recently started wearing Columbia Permit shorts. These are awesome. They are a bit longer and they have lots of loops and pockets and they are made from the new material that dries quickly and are lightweight.

    Good luck

    how do these hold up to blood and guts?

    I really like these. http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/45461?feat=2-SR0

    Columbia or Bass Pro shirts. I also picked up a couple Bimini Bay shirts at Dania Flea market and they seem to be OK too. The BB ones were like $15.

    If you throw a cast net buttons suck

    Yeah, I may have to stick to buttonless or put a frogtog top over while throwing the net, just ordered a few Reel legends long sleeves from Bealls, $20 each, thanks for the info, good stuff! :cheers:

    So I stopped by the Ellenton outlet on the way back to Tampa last week. Found the new Colombia Freezer ****...for $23 (retail is $60). I got a few of 'em, as this is the coolest microfiber shirt I've ever worn.

    The shirts have held up well. I have gotten blood and guts all over them and they wash out nicely.

    The shorts I purchased are black and beige. I haven't really bloodied them up yet but will report as soon as I do.

    cheers

    How do their sizes fit compared to their cotton shirts? Thinking of trying one out

    There is a mesh inside but it is loose enough. I have like 10 pair of these, its all I use, swim, fish, bike etc. The mesh inside does not hold up that well so I just cut it out and then go commando when it wears out. The pockets are good too.

    I like a long sleeved Columbia shirt with a little uv protection. There are many shorts that are very good. I also have a Tilley hat that is a little expensive but worth it. It never blows off and they have a great warranty. I think stains are going to happen at sometime in your clothing's life. A good pair of polarized sunglasses are necessary. Some guys that are out a lot or burn easy have the buff. Plenty of sunscreen tops it off for me.

    I have alight blue long sleeve Columbia, and love it. stole it on sale for $7.00. I also have two long sleeve green under armour spring hunting shirts that I wear and they are great, as well. Other's in my closet are short sleeve Nike Dry-fit, Austin (Academy sports store brand) polo that is similar to U.A., and I also have a wicking T-shirt that is Target's store brand. I love the one from target as much as all the others. If you have a Target close by, I would seriously go try one. Not sure you can get a long sleeve, though. They're cheap, so if I know it's going to be a dirty trip I throw it on and not worry about stains. There's lots of stuff out there, so I recommend going into a cpl stores and trying some stuff on.

    One more vote for WWS/BP shirts and pants. I only but the 100% cotton clothing because I feel they breathe better and keep me cooler than synthetics.
  • ezzriderezzrider Posts: 80 Deckhand
    I find that no matter what manufacturer shirt I wear the newer moisture wicking synthetics work better than any of the 100% cotton type shirts. I wore 100% cotton shirts forever and even the "moisture wicking" cotton shirts. I always found the cotton shirts stayed wet most of the time leaving a grimy feeling. The newer moisture wicking synthetic fibers dry very quickly leaving me feeling less grimy and much cooler.

    So what are you guys using to clean or attempt to clean the SPF shirts? After two trips I'm covered in dolphin blood. I like to at least start the day looking clean. Also where do you get this SPF replenishing detergent that someone mentioned?
  • esoxflyesoxfly Posts: 25 Greenhorn
    I wear Under Armour flats clothes. Their first gen from a couple of years ago sucked, but they've improved 110% and now are all I wear. Long sleeves and pants all summer. I too get asked if I'm baking, but I'm cool and comfortable. Not to mention my skin tone (pasty white) doesn't agree with the Sun, so I'm pretty much in flats clothes from April until October.

    Not sure it is the best price here but it is a start.

    For shirts I usually wear skinny water culture microfiber, or the columbia long sleeve (buttonless) shirts. The skinny water shirts are thinner and lighter, but both are cool enough. My favorite shorts are the regular aftco fishing shorts.
    I don't get many blood stains, but I use the spray sunblock that turns everything orange. Haven't found out how to avoid it.

    The only solution I have found to the shirts turning orange is not washing them while I am in Florida. I think it's related to the water, as I never have that issue with shirts that I bring back to Georgia before washing them.

    I use the Bass Pro version of the Columbia Fishing shirt. 

  • MayaWilsonMayaWilson RichlandPosts: 9 Greenhorn
    I use the Bass Pro version of the Columbia Fishing shirt. Washes up pretty good and has an spf of about 30 or better. Light weight, breaths and wicks away moisture and then dries quick.

    Got to find something cheap that works for the mean time-long sleeve a must

    100 % cotton tees. dickies brand tees fit well and cost about 10 bucks each at wallyworld. been wearing  tshirts to fish in all my life. skin cancer on my face, hands, legs removed a few times, but never on areas covered by cotton t shirts. go figure. and yes its tough to get fish gut stains out of cotton, but the ole lady knows you didn't lie about where you been when you come home.

    I just wear some baggies(board shorts) and a ratty T shirt. I bring a spare t shirt to change into if need be. I guess I would be considered a slob here. I usually jump in the water to get some of the fish smell off before I head in also, hence the baggies.

    Yep....who keeps dragging these back up?

    I got a deal on some Haynes X-temp tee shirts last year and like them...very cool...otherwise, I wait till the local thrift store is running " mens clothes" 50% off...I go in and buy Columbia type fishing shirts for $2 - $3 - $4  ......
