Conquer the Sun with Aftco's Fish Ninja Shirt
Total Score: 8.25 -
Sun-protective shirts and masks are two of the most crucial items I bring along
on a fishing day. Wearing these pieces of clothing aren't likely to help you get
more bites, but protecting your skin is just as important as catching fish! With
the Fish Ninja shirt from Aftco, they have blended both a mask and hood into the
shirt for the utmost in convenience and protection. I've never worn a shirt like
this before so let's see what it's made of!

combination of polyester and spandex makes for a soft, smooth, modestly-stretchy
garment. Overall quality looked quite satisfying with tight seams and good
stitch work. The seams also withstood some moderate pulling to test their

long-sleeve design and built-in mask/hood do a great job covering up a lot of

holes at the mouth keep your glasses from fogging up. I found it breathed well,
kept me comfortable, and didn't restrict movement.

Putting the mask/hood on over my head and face was pretty easy, but I found the overall
fit was slightly tight. Of course, results will vary regarding the comfort
The mask and hood section fit
really will depend on each individual
When not in use, the mask/hood can either be left to hang behind the neck
or can be quickly folded down and tucked in if desired. Doing this basically
turns the shirt into somewhat of a turtleneck and offers good neck protection.
The whole ensemble can also be tucked down a bit further which makes for an even
lower collar. Lot's of configuration flexibility for anglers to adjust based on
their unique conditions and personal preferences.
Air holes extend
down both sides of the garment....
up past the underarm region for maximum cooling effect.
