Wicked Catch Pro Staffer!

Post  07_hemi_thunderroad on Mon Apr 28, 2014 7:09 pm

Hey guys I wanted to let everyone know that I am now a member of the Wicked Catch Family. I am a Pro Staffer for them and they sell some great performance fishing gear! There shirts are made from puretech performance (PTP) fabric and the price is outstanding! The shirts are only $26.98! One of the reason I really enjoy wearing their the shirts is the Antimicrobial features in the fabric! If you want to save 5% off the gear use this coupon code: WCPROSTAFF-RHARBER

Here is some info on the shirts!
PureTech Performance Fabric Technology Guide

Sun Protection

One of the most important features a fishing shirt can have is sun protection. What does this exactly mean and isn't all clothing protecting you from the sun essentially, without needing special fabric? The answer is not exactly. All clothing can disrupt UV radiation somewhat but not all clothing can offer you maximum sun protection and that’s why it’s important to wear UPF rated clothing when spending extended periods of time outdoors. The sun’s UV radiation can lead to sunburn, accelerated skin aging and skin cancer so we can’t stress enough the importance of wearing sun protection clothing when outdoors, especially when fishing on the water.

Our fabric is what’s called UPF 50 rated fabric. UPF stands for “Ultraviolet Protection Factor” and the number 50 is the rating of how much UV protection you're receiving from our PTP fishing shirts. In UPF rated garments in general, that number can be between 15 (good) to 50 (excellent).

The way UPF clothing works is when the UV rays come into contact with the fabric a reaction occurs which causes the UV radiation to turn into heat, rendering most rays harmless. A lot of variables play a role on determining how much UV radiation can penetrate your clothings fabric; construction, dyes, treatment, fiber type, stretch and wetness all play a part. For a complete breakdown of UPF technology visit our “What is UPF” section on our site by clicking here.

 

Moisture Wicking

Moisture wicking fabrics help repel or disperse moisture from your skin. With traditional cotton fishing shirts, if you sweat or get wet that moisture will stay trapped within your clothing’s fabric because cotton soaks up moisture. This can become irritable and uncomfortable when fishing with a soggy shirt or boating from one fishing spot to the next with the wind blowing against your soggy shirt. A wet shirt also feels heavy and can feel cumbersome and constricting when maneuvering around a boat all day, throwing out the anchor and retrieving it, throwing the cast net and of course casting your bait throughout day.

How our moisture wicking fabric works is it helps bring the moisture from your skin to the surface of of the fabric so it can then be evaporated away by the sun or cool breeze. The moisture is not able to soak into our fabric because it’s 100% polyester allowing the moisture to pass through the fabric to the surface allowing it to dry extremely fast when compared to a cotton fishing shirt.

 

Lightweight

Our fabric is made from 100% polyester and one, of many, key benefits we gained by using a polyester fabric is it’s lightweight capabilities. When wearing our PTP fishing shirts you’ll barely notice you're wearing a shirt. We know how important it is to feel comfortable and light around a boat and having a light shirt on makes a world of difference.



 

Antimicrobial /an·ti·mi·cro·bi·al/

Capable of destroying or inhibiting the growth of disease-causing microorganisms and bacteria. Our PTP fishing shirt’s antimicrobial fabrics are fiber-based substrates to which antimicrobial agents have been applied at the surface and incorporated into the fibers, rendering a product that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria that can be transferred onto your shirt from fish, blood and guts that most anglers come into contact with on a typical day of fishing.
