Rugged Shark-Bull Shark Shirt

Rugged Shark, known for quality boat shoes for serious anglers and regular boaters, recently debuted its men's high-performance apparel line and with fishing season coming up I decided I could probably use a new shirt.

I had a hard time deciding between the long sleeve and short sleeve versions, but in the end I went with the short. With a suggested retail price of $50 I choose the Bull Shark, which uses a quick-drying nylon that is enhanced by the vented mesh back panels for extra air-flow on hot days. Even though it didn't help me catch a fish that day, I do like the Shark Shield feature that offers UPF 30 sun protection.

Available in six different colors as well as a wide range of sizes from small to 3X, I like the look and feel of the shirt. And because it's backed by the New Jersey-based company that has been providing quality products for years, I know it will be durable and last a long time.
