AFTCO Apparel Protect Anglers from Skin Cancer

IMG_4737

Sunburn. It’s a tradeoff many anglers shrug off as part of the fun involved in pursuing their favorite outdoor activity. This might seem like temporary irritation or redness to the skin, but overexposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays can cause long-lasting damage to the skin and could eventually turn into a deadly form of skin cancer called Melanoma. Skin cancer can be easily prevented if you take proper precautions like wearing UV protective clothing.

Help fight skin cancer with the line of performance sun protection clothing from the American Fishing Tackle Company (AFTCO). Through specially chosen performance fabrics and unique garment construction, AFTCO offers a line of fishing apparel aimed at reducing the risk of skin cancer.

Melanoma and other skin cancers are on the rise, with up to 2 million cases diagnosed each year, according to the American Cancer Society. AFTCO wants to do its part to reverse that alarming trend while providing a stylish, functional means for enjoying hours of fishing fun in the sun.

The Fish Ninja Performance Fishing Sun Hoodie provides arm, neck, head and face coverage in one garment. The standout feature of the AFTCO Fish Ninja is the UPF 50+ UV protection rating that blocks 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

The fabric is made of a 98/20 blend of polyester and spandex for function, good looks and comfort. The Fish Ninja fabric is anti-microbial, lightweight, quick drying and stain resistant. It offers a comfortable range of movement without binding. The attached hood and mask feature laser-cut breathing holes at the nose and mouth to prevent sunglasses from fogging. Additional laser-cut ventilation holes are present at the side seams to keep you cool and dry in the heat.

For more than 50 years, AFTCO has donated proceeds from the sale of AFTCO tackle & clothing products to various causes aimed at the protection of our fishing resources and angler access to these resources. As with the purchase of all products from AFTCO, a portion of proceeds from the fish ninja will directly support marine conservation efforts. In 2012 alone, customer purchases of AFTCO products enabled AFTCO to donate over $500,000 to marine and fishing conservation issues.

If wearing an all-in-one sun protection hoodie is not for you, AFTCO also offers a range of sun masks and other sun protection garments. However, the fish ninja with the sun mask built into your performance shirt is the safest way to ensure that you’ll be protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays at all times.
