Ditch those old jean shorts and grab a pair of these shorts if you're serious about fishing!
Fishing for reds in skinny water requires a degree of stealth and clothing that lets you withstand the full onslaught of the sun all day long. Although you're on your own when it comes to delivering your lure quietly in the right spot, these Simms Skiff Shorts are designed to increase your time on the water with their quick-dry, wicking and sun protection features. They also stretch to move with you as your activity level rises. Easy-care, 100% polyester with pockets made to hold fishing gear securely. You'll find slash hand pockets, a zippered back pocket, a hook-and-loop closure back pocket and a zippered thigh pocket. Non-corrosive, plastic snap front closure for extra life around saltwater. Traditional fit with proportioned inseams (size L = 11" inseam). Approx. weight: 7.2oz. Imported.
These Skiff Shorts feature an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) rating of 50+. The UPF rating indicates how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed. A rating of 50 means the fabric will allow only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays to pass through. Your skin's UV radiation exposure is significantly reduced so you can stay on the water fishing longer.
Wicking + Quick-Dry
When the action starts to heat up you'll appreciate the way these Skiff Shorts wick moisture to the outside of the shorts where it quickly dries in the sun and/or wind, so they never feel soggy or heavy.
Your Skiff Shorts will also stretch comfortably with you without using Spandex or Lycra yarns, rather they offer a mechanical stretch whereby the fabric is woven to a wider width and then shrunk in the finishing so they stretch when pulled. They return to their original state after stretching so you'll even look sharp after a day of pulling your limit of redfish out of the water.
