The Best Long Sleeve Fishing Shirts

If you’re planning on going out on the water for extended periods of time, it is necessary to have a long sleeve fishing shirt with sun protection.

Although it may seem silly to wear long sleeves when it is incredibly hot and sunny, it is a necessity if you want to be comfortable and well protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

There are many benefits to wearing a long sleeve fishing shirt vs. a short sleeve shirt, especially when you will be out in the sun. More protection means less sunscreen application which makes more a more comfortable experience on the water! 

Choosing the right fishing shirt may more important than you think. Spending long days out in the sun can be tough on your body. A good long sleeve fishing shirt can help combat:

  1. The constant sun beating
  2. Warm temperatures
  3. Annoying insects
  4. The mess that a day of fishing can cause. 

So where can you find a long sleeve fishing shirt and how do you know it’s the right one for you?

Historically, anglers would settle for a cotton blend or low quality polyester fishing shirts that provided adequate sun protection but would stick to your skin and be uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. 

Over the years, polyester has become much more popular and polyester blends have become more comfortable and stylish. These polyester fishing shirts perform well, however, there are some notable flaws. 

Most significantly, polyester has detrimental effects on the environment as the fabric requires an exhaustive amount of chemicals to produce. Although the fabric makes for a good long sleeve fishing shirt, it is not ultimately good in the long term. 

So what’s the best long sleeve fishing shirt out there?

What if I told you that there was a fabric that performed in line with top polyester blends but did not have the same detrimental effects on the environment. 

Now that we have your attention, let’s talk about bamboo (yes, like the grass). Bamboo fabric comes from a natural source and has incredible performance attributes. These attributes, like sun protection, odor resistance, moisture wicking, and more come naturally and do not require excess chemical application. 

Plus, bamboo is the softest material on the market!

That’s why here at Navillus Apparel, we used bamboo to create the next generation of long sleeve fishing shirts.

These shirts are not only good for you, but they’re good for the environment too. 

We want you to experience the comfort of bamboo.
