What’s your favorite mask for fishing to keep the sun off your face?

Besides keeping the sun off me, my most important factor is how breathable the mask is. The only one I’ve found that I can wear for a long time without it fogging up my sun glasses is the Simms Sun Gaiter:

What about you?

I use the same, but they wear out within one season. My HUK one has lasted me over 2.

I bought these, seem to work pretty good, easy to breathe thru, cheap, the next couple months will detemine how much sun they block, but so far so good, comfortable.

SO you just wanted to see yourself make a post? ...as you can't contribute to the question at hand, why post?

I have some Simm's facemasks that have a perforated fabric in the mouth/nose area that seems to help.

Can't remember the brand but the one that Walmart carries in the fishing section. Its thin and really soft. I have one from Amazon i think i paid around $16 for that came with matching gloves.

I like this one the best too. I think it fits the best and also covers the neck better.

I really like this one from Gillz, but they have a note on their site saying that Covid has cleared out their inventory. That's ironic considering the portion that covers your mouth and nose is perforated for ventilation. Either way, it's the most breathable sun face mask I've found.
