The Patagonia Spring 2016 Collection is here and the best way we can describe the saltwater fly fishing line is “battle-ready”. All good armor has a job to do, the new Patagonia gear is no different. Spring and Summer not only bring hot fishing, but also blistering heat and torrential downpours that seem to come out of nowhere. Warriors of the salt, have confidence that you will be protected from sun and rain as you focus on your tropic dwelling targets.
For the Spring 2016 Collection Patagonia put a strong emphasis on performance and protection not only for the completely new gear, but also for new versions of old classics. For example, the Graphic Tech Fish Tee was upgraded from 4.8oz 100% polyester with UPF 20+ sun protection to 4.6oz 94% poly/6% spandex blend with Polygiene® permanent odor control and UPF 50+ sun protection.
Graphic Tech Fish Tee
The Patagonia Men’s Graphic Tech Fish Tee now wields Patagonia’s upgraded Tropic Comfort fabric. Still extremely comfortable, the Graphic Tech Tee now wicks faster, dries quicker, kills odor with permanent Polygiene® odor control and blocks more rays with UPF 50+ sun protection. The fish-appeal of the original artwork makes the Graphic Tech Fish Tee a conversation starting going-out shirt in addition to a technical fishing shirt. [Shop Now]
