Default What companies make fishing clothing?

Other than Pelagic and Columbia what companies make performance fishing gear? I really like Pelagic but a lot of their stuff isn't very flexible size-wise.

I like Old Harbor Outfitters... and not that its specifically designed for fishing but Under Armour gear wears well on a boat.

Most companies have a upf or moisture wicking shirt, I choose to support startups and local guys- in my neighborhood that's southbound apparel s-XXl upf30+ moisture wicking and anti microbial for 30 or less depending on coupon codes. Basspro also has a decent in house performance shirt. I don't know why people would fish in a t shirt anymore with the protective qualities in these upf shirts.

Can you expand on what a upf shirt is? Obviously it is uv protecting but I cant find them.

field and stream also makes some upf shirts that are really comfortable.

basically it does the same thing as sunscreen without the mess. I have a long sleeve columbia that i wear under a thin button up field and stream and don't have to worry about sunscreen at all except on my face

Lure'm in sells a sticky type shirt, with sticky I mean stretchy clothes normally used when water boarding.
Kluch clothing also make some nice looking shirts but that's all I know about them.

From a google search "Both SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) are standards used to measure sunburn protection. SPF, the standard used to measure the effectiveness of sunscreens, has been around for many years. The UPF system is relatively new and was created specially for sun protective fabrics."
I can tell you I wore long sleeves all summer (fl panhandle) and was never any hotter than my buddies and I always had a tan line at my wrist and neck even though sunscreen was applied to the areas outside m shirt. I won't spend a day on the water without a quality shirt... And I much prefer the comfort of these types over the old style Columbia multi-useless-pocket shirts.

All the money I might have spent on expensive fishing clothes, I put towards boat maintenance, tackle, gas, ice, etc. For fishing, I wear clothes that are ready for goodwill but work great for fishing when they get blood, chum, bait stains on them.

Have to go with Tim and the folks at MOJO. The traditional board shorts are the most functional and comfortable I have found. And I have tried most companies. The up on step casual shorts are awesome for when you're not on the water. Also a great line of perfrmance shirts.

Like their shoes...but they apparently don't cater to men with large feet...
