Beat The Heat with Under Armour’s Coolswitch Series
Let’s face it; you wouldn’t spend a day ice fishing without wearing some kind of insulated protection. It wouldn’t be fun and it wouldn’t be safe. Well, the same goes for fishing in the heat, humidity and searing sun of summer. You need a hat, sunglasses, clothing and footwear to stay cool, protected and ready to cast at a moment’s notice.
That’s where Under Armour’s new CoolSwitch clothing line comes into play. Designed to perform and protect even under extreme heat and humidity, it uses proven apparel technologies to fend off the dog days and leaves you feeling as if standing beside your own personal air conditioner. In an interesting turn of technology, a ceramic print on the inside of the garment pulls heat away from your body as you start getting hot. This is almost the exact opposite of the company’s industry leading cold weather gear which reflects body heat back for retention.
Made specifically for anglers, CoolSwitch Long Sleeve Thermocline tops and ¼ Zips combine strategic ventilation and an airy fit that lets air slide easily across your upper body while still allowing full range of motion whether casting or releasing that trophy of lifetime to fight another day. Incorporating ArmourBlock® technology, they are also stain and bacteria resistant.
Under Armour CoolSwitch tops are 90% polyester and 10% elastane, making for just the right amount of stretch to combine a great look with super comfort. Even more important, they provide a UPF rating of 30+. That means you can keep comfortable and sunburn free even under bluebird skies. You’ll feel stylish wearing these tops, too, especially should you choose the functional fishing camo pattern. Keep your camera ready and smile with that catch of the day.
Comfortable and secure footing is another important consideration for anglers and Under Armour’s new UA Drainster and Kilchis are perfect for keeping feet dry and secure on deck or around the dock. Lightweight and breathable with a self-draining footbed, they also resist staining and bacteria while ensuring tremendous traction without ever leaving scuff marks.
Under Armour CoolSwitch Long Sleeve Thermocline tops sell for $54.99 while the ¼ Zips are $64.99. The UA Drainster runs $84.99 and UA Kilchis retail for $69.99. Considering their comfort, performance and stylish good looks, boaters and anglers should find them all to be quite a bargain.
