Skinny Water Culter Microfiber

Skinny Water Culture is a local fishing wear clothing designer who makes fishing shirts and products designed to protect us from the sun and make us look cool while we're out doing what we love to do. Keep an eye on their site though because, like any gear manufacturer prices tend to fluctuate. They also have a ladies line of products. Since I'm always preaching about sun protection while kayak fishing, I figured I'd follow some of my own advice…

I recently picked up a Skinny Water Culture “Tarpon” long sleeved microfiber shirt. I have to say that I really like it. It looks cool, it protects me from the sun, and I don’t end up looking like an Easter Egg with a vented, pastel colored sun shirt that everyone else wears.

This shirt also boasts a “UPF + 50 Mega Solar Opacity” which means that even though it’s thin, the sun doesn't burn you through the fabric.

I’ve worn this on a few daytime fishing trips and can say it does do an nice job of keeping the sun off of me and it does dry fairly quickly, but when there is no breeze, any microfiber shirt can be a bit on the balmy side, and this product is no exception.

Pros & Cons

Groovy design
Rather warm for a shirt that is supposed to keep you cool + price point = better options elsewhere
