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 Long-Sleeved Sol Patrol® II 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, and can also be worn up to give the back of the neck extra coverage against the rays. Cooling mesh fabric at center back and side vents is receptive to any breeze, providing comfort in the most stifling conditions. The two button-through chest pockets are mesh-lined, there’s also an inset zippered pocket on the left. Sleeves secure with self-fabric tab when rolled up, button cuffs. Our casting logo is stitched above the chest pocket.
