Which of the brands do you like best for keeping you cooler throughout the day? I have a few columbia ones and was wondering if any of the others are better

Simms. Also have all the name brands that are less $. Was really excited last year when Columbia came out with the fabric that cools when it's wet. Still, nothing that I have tried is as good as the Simms. Not even close, really.

Don't know about better but I like the Magellan line from Academy. I have Columbia and other brands and they all seem about the same as far as comfort goes. Never tried the Simms but may have to after reading fouzman's post.

Agreed on the Academy Magellan shirts. They go on sale for a really good price and I pick up a few new ones every summer!

I recently discovered HUK fishing gear.

I really like the Perfomance Icon long sleeve because it's vented in the back and along the under arm area.

The Magellan stuff from Academy is great, basically the same as Columbia but cheaper. Omni line aside.

I have tried just about every brand except the Simms. I have found when it's 100+ degrees, you just aren't going to be "cool". None of the ones I have tried work great unless they are a little snug & there is a slight breeze. Of all the ones I have tried, it seems Columbia's Omni Freeze Zero works the best for me. They seem to work a little better than just the Omni Freeze. However, I will never be as cool as most anglers because I wear long sleeves & long pants. I've had skin cancer multiple times & now I cover up head to toe. It's hard for me to stay out there all day in the summer. When I was younger, it wasn't a problem fishing all day. So now in the summer, I just get on the water much earlier & get off the water much earlier.
Have a Blessed Day,
Mike

hard to find, but I have the light weight Columbia PFG long sleeves with hoods! on the water I put the hood up under my hat. Only sunscreen I need is nose and hands. Also works great for seeing in the bright sun, especially sight fishing.

The Magellan shirts and pants do not breath very well and seem to hold in the body heat for me. I use long sleeve shirts to cover my arms for sun protection and it get hot with no breeze. Just my thoughts

Where did you find those Rob? I would really like the hood for these middle of summer days. I am not a huge fan of the tight buffs although I still wear them for the protection.

I got two white ones at an Academy in San Antonio, I'd think the others would carry them, if I'm not mistaken they've only been out like six months maybe just slow getting to some stores!

Those look great. Just wish they had a pocket. These darn cheaters I have to use to tie knots, remove hooks from my hand etc... make something without a pocket a non-starter.
