For warm-weather anglers who seek maximum sun protection without feeling sticky and sweaty, the Channel Hooded Performance Shirt from AFTCO checks all the boxes. This new addition to AFTCO’s existing lineup of utility-based comfort clothing was introduced as a New Product Showcase entry at ICAST 2023 in Orlando, FL. Knitted with 100% recycled polyester, the ventilated Channel Hooded Performance Shirt touts a UPF 40 sun-protection rating to provide summertime anglers with a breathable top that covers the most vulnerable spots for sun burn.
Anatomically placed thumb loops cover the hands to minimize sun exposure during all-day outings while a purposefully designed SpeedVent™ active hood gently hugs the head to keep it from blowing down in high winds so the sun stays off your neck and face. The Channel Hooded Performance Shirt is water repellent and quick drying to keep you comfortable through sea spray and splashes while the moisture-wicking fabric eliminates the humidity factor by wicking away sweat. Whether worn under sunny skies on a windless day offshore, or while poling around the bath-warm backwaters in the summer, the Channel Hooded Performance Shirt is equipped with comfortable cooling features that make long, hot days on the water more bearable.
