Review: Eddie Bauer Guide Shirt

I have a new fishing partner; I’ll call him Eddie. He doesn’t drink my beer or eat my food. Hell, he doesn’t even try to catch fish, but he does provide protection. Protection from summer heat. Protection from sunburn. Eddie even keeps me dry when I start to sweat while working the oars or fishing from shore. I’d recommend all my friends fish with Eddie, and luckily he comes in three colors, so we won’t look like total dweebs when we hit the water together. The short sleeved Guide Shirt, from Eddie Bauer, is a great addition to any fisherman’s wardrobe. The polyester/nylon mix wicks away moisture and dries quickly, whether wet from sweat, rain, or a jump in the river. The dual front pockets zip closed to protect any items placed inside and the UPF 50+ sun protection shields your skin. A vented back and special lining around the collar even help keep you cool. $60;
