Best Moisture Wicking Long Sleeve Fishing T - Shirt ?

Recommended Posts

As the title states , what is your favorite moisture wicking long sleeve T- Shirt / Jersey style fishing shirt with the following features :

 

* Comfortable , non - scratchy material

* Ability to wick moisture away and help keep you dry

* Ample room / Relaxed fit for movement

* SPF 50 sun screen protection

* Larger sizes available

 

Thanks in advance for replies - I need to ditch all my cotton T-Shirts used for fishing as I'm tired of feeling like a soaking wet rag in Georgia heat and humidity !

Columbia and Aftco seem to be the lightest and most comfortable for me. Columbia’s seem to have a little more “room” in em.

I have several of the Magellan shirts and have been really happy with them. I have little to compare them to since I've never spent the money on any higher end shirts, but they seen to meet everything you're looking for in a $20 shirt.

Agree on the Magellan shirt from Academy. Works good, plenty of pockets, and reasonable price.

I like my Columbia shirts, haven't tried any others though.  Haven't felt the need to!

Another Columbia fan here  - and I'm bigger guy - 6-5, 285  - and I find their shirts to be very comfortable

Orvis Tech T-shirt. Micro polyester. Comfy on the skin. SPF 50 that's legit. I never get sun burned wearing them and I'm as white as a sheet of paper due to the Irish half. I prefer the white shirts over the grey on high sun days. They dry quickly once wet. They're pricey but worth it to me. But they only seem to come with a big fish plastered on the back if that matters to you.

Yep, that's them. I need a few more. They're really light and breezy for our 100 degree days.

I've got a couple of the HUK shirts, a couple of the Magellan shirts, a Patagonia shirt and a Simms shirt.   They all work. I find that I wear the hoodies more than the non-hoodies.

Might want to check Hanes website out, they have long sleeve spf50 shirt up to 3XL for $10. I have 4, for the money, they are hard to beat.

I really like the Huk shirts I have purchased.  I always buy on sale:  Sierra Trading for example.

Good point. I find Columbia and UnderArmor often at Marshal’s and Ross for under $20.

Columbia may be the best bang for the buck and is always on sale somewhere.

Orvis is expensive, but the most comfortable for me

Under Armour's Coolswitch or Isochill shirts are really nice.  They really do get a cool feeling when wet.  Those have been the best for me. I have a couple Huk shirts but the mesh back pills so badly.  Wore them once and they look like trash.

I wore Columbia & Under Armour for a long time but it's HUK now.

All Day Every Day ~ Big fan.

Works especially well south of the border - and believe me - there's plenty of moisture to wick during those trips.

I’ll recommend one step further to buy Columbia PFG hooded version. You pay a little more but extra cover around your next.

Another vote for Columbia PFG.

I appreciate the replies - I have an Academy nearby so I will try the Meggellan version to begin (anything is better than my cotton shirts ) then I will explore the other suggestions listed here . *There appears to be a lot more dry / moisture wicking fishing shirt options today - why suffer right ?

I wear an UnderArmour with a T-Shirt over it. UA is still the best IMO. But I went crazy ordering the SA Company arm sleeves this season. I am keeping my fingers crossed on them making whole shirts some time soon.

I have and have worn the Huk, Simms, Orvis. The Huk is definitely cooler than the others.

 

I bought a two-pack of the hanes cool and dry mentioned above on amazon for 18.00. Lots of colors and great reviews. And I just bought an iso-chill (because Texas). Haven't tried either yet.

I have mostly Columbia but also have an Under Armour fish with a cool graphic that works great too.

I like my HUK shirts. Use the vented for summer, they work great but I don't think any shirt will keep ya really cool with the humidity we have. 

 

On a Slight side note, I like the Magellen fishing shorts. Good price and dry really fast for a decent price.
