Here are a few items we have in stock with a description!
SOL PATROL II
In theory, chasing Indonesian surf and bonefish for weeks on end is like going to heaven; in practice, it’s really damn hot. To make sure you’re covered, the Sol Patrol® Shirt is made of lightweight, quick-drying polyester ripstop with 30-UPF sun protection. This long-sleeved shirt features a double-layer collar that stays put with hidden snaps at the collar points but can also stand up for extra protection against the rays. Cooling mesh (center back) and side air vents are receptive to any breeze, providing comfort in a wide array of circumstances. Two button-through chest pockets are lined with mesh; there’s also an inset zippered pocket on the left. The Sol Patrol has our casting logo stitched above the chest pocket.
ISLAND HOPPER II
The Island Hopper helps you keep your cool whether you’re working your way through the Marquesas or the baggage line at Key West International. The new, ultralight blend of soft, moisture-wicking 60% organic cotton and 40% all-recycled polyester provides big-time ventilation and 15-UPF sun protection. It also washes easily with a quick dunk in the sink and dries fast. Made with vibrant colors to reflect the sun’s rays and a straight hem and side vents for casual, untucked comfort. The oversized, drop-in chest pockets (sized for a fly box, passport or both) with mesh vents now feature a larger opening for improved access.
RIVET LOGO TEE
The Rivet Logo Cotton/Poly T-Shirt encapsulates the mountains and oceans we hold dear in one enduring design. The tee is made from an exceptionally soft fabric blend of post-consumer recycled polyester and Texas co-op organic cotton. Artwork by Peet Kegler Design is screen-printed using PVC- and phthalate-free inks. Taped shoulder seams for comfort and excellent fit retention.
SANDY CAY SHORTS
Our new Sandy Cay Shorts are tougher than a cheap carne asada, yet unexpectedly cool and light. The quick-drying 3.5-oz 100% nylon taslan fabric with 50+ UPF sun protection takes care of the weight—or lack thereof—and a double fabric layer on the high-wear leg-front zone ensures serious durability. Two mesh-drained slash pockets in the front, two pockets (one drop-in and one zipper) on the back and a bonus drop-in utility pocket on the right thigh provide ample storage. And if you’re packing more gear than the comfy, elastic-back waistband can handle, the belt loops are always there for backup. Inseam is 11 inches.
If it’s been done, it’s been done in Baggies™. They are made from a quick-drying Supplex® nylon with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and have a casual fit and an elasticized waistband with internal drawstring. Other features include a polyester mesh lining, a rear snap pocket and front pockets (with self-draining mesh corners) that are positioned to reduce drag in the water. With 50+ UPF sun protection. Inseam is 7″.
