Conquer the Sun with Aftco's Fish Ninja Shirt

Tackle type: Apparel
Manufacturer: Aftco
Reviewer: Wolbugger

Total Score: 8.25 - GREAT

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!

Introducing the Fish Ninja from Aftco!

Quality/Construction: The 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 strength. All of the ventilation holes are laser-cut for a perfectly round and consistent appearance. 

The shirt's cut isn't baggy which is something I can always appreciate.

Performance: If you want maximum sun protection the Fish Ninja shirt is a solid choice. Its long-sleeve design and built-in mask/hood do a great job covering up a lot of skin. The air holes along the side of the shirt help circulate air, while the holes at the mouth keep your glasses from fogging up. I found it breathed well, kept me comfortable, and didn't restrict movement.

The mask's air holes work wonders for reducing fogging of your sunglasses and allow for added ventilation.

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 level.

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....

.and up past the underarm region for maximum cooling effect.
