Introducing the Whitewater LS Tech Shirt and Lightweight Tech Hoodie

Better lightweight tech garments for boaters and anglers

MUSKEGON, Mich. (May 16, 2022) – Lightweight performance fishing shirts provide comfortable and versatile protection from the sun’s harmful rays while wicking moisture to keep warm-weather anglers cool during the heat of the hunt. But many so-called fishing tech shirts have a downside. It’s called permastink. The lightweight polyester material which forms the fabrics that perform so well in warm temperatures has a very small pore structure that can trap and tightly grip bacteria and odor molecules. Once trapped, these odors can be difficult or impossible to remove, even with repeated washings.

Whitewater’s new Long-Sleeve Tech Shirt and Lightweight Tech Hoodie deliver anglers a triple dose of technology to keeps anglers dry, protected from solar radiation, and smelling fresh. Our 100% polyester interlock fabric delivers supreme, next-to-skin comfort, while wicking perspiration to keep anglers comfy and dry. UPF 30 provides both UVA and UVB skin protection that effectively blocks over 96% of ultraviolet radiation. Finally, an antimicrobial treatment controls and prevents odors, including the permastink that can infiltrate untreated polyester garments.
