The bean counters in control of what used to be good fishing/boating/kayaking pants have lowered the quality of what used to be good pants.
One area is very low UPF ratings, often well below 20. A low UPF rating in fishing pants for use in a Yak, could be a severe problem.
Another area is the quality of the pants. Cabela's house brand used to be great, and now their customer ratings are dropping like big rocks in a lake.
I have been using UA shirts/tops for over 5 years. All of my tops are still in great shape. I wear them fishing, walking and hiking. My wife has no problem with me wearing them to go places with her. My wife has outfitted me with UA's bright yellow long sleeve tops to be seen in my/our yaks.
I started using their t's a couple of years ago, and I will go to their Charged Cotton long sleeve t's when it heats up out here.
This season as my Cabela's an C brand pants go past their safe use, I will be replacing them with UA' pants. I will probably go with the tan as the black colors in summer sun can heat me up more than I want.http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/en/pid1205777
Can anyone recommend a brand of long pants for fishing in warm/hot weather? I always wear long sleeve shirts and big hat but really need to cover the legs too.
