Pelagic Sun Shield Buff

Pelagic's Sun Shield offers another line of defense in your battle against ultraviolet rays

Most offshore fishermen you meet aren't beautiful people - unless they're under 25 and just getting into the game. The rest are usually so burnt to a crisp and weather-beaten that you'd add 10 years to their age if you had to guess. Nowadays, youngsters reach for the sunscreen before stepping outside, and we've all learned about the real threat that comes from getting too much sun.

Pelagic's Sun Shield offers another line of defense in your battle against ultraviolet rays by covering up two of your most sensitive areas - the face and neck. With an SPF rating of 50, this 11- by 16-inch buff completely covers even the largest head and face. Made from a lightweight, breathable material, it won't suffocate you on hot days either. It also makes a nice, warm face shield when fishing during the winter.
