Life doesn’t get much better than when you’re on the water with the warmth of the sun shining down on you. If that’s you, you’re living the Reel Life™, you were #RaisedOnTheWater. However, that doesn’t mean that the sunshine shouldn’t be enjoyed responsibly. Just like the water, if the sun is given the respect it’s due with some preparation, it will remain a source of great enjoyment. One of the best ways to prepare is by picking up a Reel Life™ fishing shirt for men or women.
Why Protection From the Sun Is Important
The negative consequences of excessive sun exposure are both long- and short-term. The short-term risks include sunburn, overheating, and dehydration, which can ruin an otherwise perfect day out on the water. The long-term consequences of excessive sun exposure can include damage to your skin, which can lead to further issues. So protect yourself!
Reel Life™ Shirts and Shorts for Protection
A terrific first step in protection from the sun is choosing among the Reel Life™ collection of long sleeve fishing shirts and hybrid shorts: Their performance fishing shirts and shorts offer UPF 50+ UV protection. Keeping the sun’s rays off of your skin also helps to keep you cool when it’s hot out. Direct sunlight on your skin can actually make you hotter, so covering up with the right high-quality fabric is often better than bare skin. The shirts and shorts are breathable and lightweight, which is what allows you to keep cool under the sun.
Reel Life™ Accessories for Protection
In addition to the protection offered by Reel Life™ women’s and men fishing shirts, and their fishing shorts, you can find additional protection from their stylish, functional accessories. Most notable among those accessories are their polarized sunglasses and fishing hats. A mesh-backed fishing hat from Reel Life™ keeps the sun off of the top of your head, keeping you cooler and saving your scalp from sunburn. The bill provides shade, while the mesh back greatly increases breathability, keeping the wearer cooler still. Reel Life™ also carries a terrific selection of polarized sunglasses, which block more UV rays than traditional sunglasses and increase in-water visibility.
Additional Suggestions for Protection
Along with the protection from the sun provided by Reel Life™, there are some basic steps everyone should take to stay comfortable outdoors:
- Wear sunscreen. Apply it early and often, especially if you’re in the water.
- Don’t spend too much time in the sun. Take shade breaks when possible.
- Stay hydrated throughout the day.
