Great cover and great comfort!

I prefer wearing long sleeve shirts over wearing sunscreen. I have many long sleeve shirts and buffs that I wear together. The long sleeve shirts can get very hot on those summer days at the beach. With BLAF shirts, I do not feel as hot as my others. Also the buff being connected to the shirt keeps you from getting burned in the gap between a regular buff and shirt. I always wear sunglasses and I do not have breath fog on them when I wear my BLAF shirt. This is another positive for me. I would highly recommend these for someone who likes full coverage from the sun.

Outfitted the whole family!

I used to love baking in the sun all year long. My mother always called me “gingerbread boy” because I got so dark in the summer. No shirt or a tank top was my normal hot weather fishing attire. The older I get, the more concerned I become about the harmful effects that the sun has on me. I decided to try out a few different long sleeve fishing shirts and see if I could possibly bear to wear them in the heat...

To my surprise, I found that not only do the high performance fishing shirts protect from the sun, they keep me much cooler than going sleeveless or with no shirt at all.

Out of all the shirts I have worn or tried, one stands FAR above the rest - so much so that I have outfitted the entire family with them. I was introduced to the Breathe Like A Fish shirt by a friend of mine and after the first purchase I was hooked. Incredibly fast shipping, really personal service, and lower price than most on the shelf fishing shirts are some great reasons to purchase. One of my most favorite features of the shirts is written right on it in bold letters: MADE IN THE USA.

You can get the shirt with or without a mask, and you can also buy the masks separately. I prefer mine separate; it just gives me the option of wearing it or not. The BLAF masks have perforations in them that make breathing easy and helps prevent fogging of glasses. They even have a new style with “gills” on the side to make them even cooler. We plan on adding some of those to our gear bags soon.

The shirts have a serious mesh panel down their sides and another on the inside of the arms. These panels work together to allow air movement across your torso at any breeze or body motion. The lightweight material dries superfast so you are not left feeling soggy all day long. It doesn’t collect odors, and I have found that a couple of days in one will not have your fishing buddies hating you or a cloud of vultures circling overhead.

I have worn Breathe Like A Fish shirts on several all-day trips in triple digit weather where the folks with me were in serious heat distress. Even my bride (who confesses her severe displeasure in sweating) has learned to love her BLAF shirt. She will be the recipient of a new Caribbean blue one for Christmas, and I can’t wait for her to see it. The only thing I have to watch out for is to not wear the same color as my teenage son. That seems to create some storm in reality that destroys any sense of pride that a teenager has if they end up dressed like their dad accidentally.

Whether you are hunting for temperature control or protection from sun damage, Breathe Like A Fish shirts are awesome additions to any serious fisherperson’s wardrobe - and they look pretty darn snazzy, too. Give one a shot; you will probably end up with a whole set before long!

Great Shirts

These shirts are great. I have the long sleeve without the buff. It is very comfortable to wear and "breathes" really well. UV protection is awesome. They are also great at wicking water and sweat. Got caught in an hour long rain during a tournament and within 10 minutes of the rain stopping it was completely dry. Even the swimming trunks I had on weren't dry by then. I would definitely recommend these shirts!

Awesome Fishing Shirts

Was going down to Lake Chicamauga in Tennessee for some serious bass fishing. Last time I was there it was hot and humid. The Hawaiian shirts that make up the over 50 crowd uniform weren't cutting it, so this time I ordered the bass digital and blue long sleeve micro mesh "Breath Like a Bass" series of shirts from Breath Like a Fish. These shirts are the most comfortable and functional shirts a fisherman can wear. I got the shirts with the buff built into the collar, which worked like a champ. The sides and portion of the underside of the sleeves are a big mesh, which really keeps ya cool in the heat. At $45.95 they are a bit spendy, but they are any more than their competitors and a lot more comfortable. I give these shirts a big "Two Thumbs Up!"
