Ladies apparel was out in full force at this years ICAST in Orlando, Florida. It was incredible to see so many companies really taking time figuring out what ladies need to be functional on the water while also figuring out a way to keep it stylish and comfortable. Lets look at some great new apparel that will be available soon for the lady angler.

The ULTIMATE CATCH ZERO LONG SLEEVE SHIRT. MSRP $80.00

You really can never go wrong with Columbia Apparel.  Their fabric is incredibly soft and the cut of the shirts are always tailored for a great fit. I like the small features they have on this new Ultimate Catch Zero- like the sunglass cleaning cloth and the tab holders for when you want to roll up those sleeves. Personally, I don’t like pockets on the chest, they can be unflattering and not functional if you have a larger bust but, with the quick dry and UPF 50 technology as well as the vented back- this is a great shirt for a long day on the water.

The ULTIMATE CATCH ZERO KNIT LONG SLEEVE SHIRT. MSRP $55.00

The knit long sleeve options have become very popular recently. This new Ultimate Catch Zero knit from Columbia has a great look to it and with the activated cooling and UPF technology it has, makes it great for on and off the water. This can be worn almost anywhere and will keep you cool and comfortable.

The AIRGALL LONG SLEEVE SHIRT. MSRP $70.00

The Airgall Long Sleeve was my favorite new shirt from Columbia at ICast this year. It has many of the same features as the new Ultimate Catch Zero discussed earlier, but it has an added bonus of the vents on both sides of the shirts as well as the back. Talking with Columbia at ICast, I was told they call this the “mommy shirt” because, not only does it look great and can be worn anywhere, but it also has a repellant technology that creates a barrier against stains. At $70, this is a great price point for a shirt that should hold up and last a long time.

The ULTIMATE CATCH CONVERTIBLE PANT. MSRP $65.00

The Ultimate Catch Pant was the first thing at ICast that had me truly excited. I am always having problems finding a great ladies pant for the water. They have all the technology that comes with the shirts; UPF 50 protection, stain repellency, quick dry, etc. but what I really loved, was the fact that they are able to convert from pant, to capri, to short. So no matter what situation you find yourself on the water, or simply your comfort level, you only have to buy this one pair of pants. Get to hot? Zip off to shorts. Need additional sun protection? Roll the capri down to the full pant. At $65, you cant beat it.

The LADIES DOLPHIN LONG SLEEVE SHIRT. MSRP $50.00

The new ladies line from Mojo Sportswear is very impressive. Like the new Ladies Dolphin Shirt- the fabric is very soft and has a nice stretch with the nylon/spandex combination. The long sleeves have the thumbholes (which I personally love) to keep those sleeves in place and let’s admit, it looks great too! Mojo uses bright bold colors and designs that will definitely make you stand out and be noticed. This performance has UPF 30 protection, quick dry, and moisture wicking technology, and at only $50, this is a very affordable option for any lady angler.

The MS. COOL LONG SLEEVE SHIRT. MSRP $69.00

The new Ms. Cool shirt from Mojo Sportswear was my favorite performance shirt at ICast this year. I cant describe how incredible this new fabric is. What makes this shirt stand out, was how lightweight this material was. You could sleep in this shirt, it is so comfortable; yet with the UPF 30 protection, vented back panel, roll up sleeve capability- it doesn’t just look and feel great, it is very functional for the outdoors, especially in the summer heat. This will be available Spring 2016, and I definitely recommend you check this one out.

MAVENFLY CLOTHING

I was introduced to MavenFly Clothing Company at this years ICast. They focus mainly on Fly Fishing apparel, and what was unusual (in a GREAT way) was they only manufacture ladies clothing. It was so refreshing to see a company catering solely to the lady outdoorsman. I was drawn in by how beautiful the clothing was, then after studying it a little, I began to see how much functionality it had as well.

The MAVEN FISHING SHIRT. MSRP $124.99

The Maven Fishing and Fly Shirts are very soft, lightweight, and breathable. Moving the standard chest pockets to the sleeves, was an inventive way to make them functional for a lady angler (we don’t get much use of out chest pockets). The back of the shirt is made a little longer, which is perfect for me, being a kayaker, it really cuts down on the “ride up” you get when paddling. There is also a zip pocket located on the lower back of the shirt, for essential items that can be stored out of the way. The shirts are water repellant and have UPF 50+ protection. These are available now, so please check them out!

The MAVEN VEST. MSRP $148.99

I was instantly drawn to this item with its styling for fishing, hunting, and shooting, the Maven Vest is a must have for any lady outdoorsman, plus it is very feminine looking, not big and bulky like many of the other vests on the market. This vest has a mesh back for added breathability, numerous cargo pockets, a longer length with a contoured waist, and being 100% nylon- it is water and wind resistant and surprisingly lightweight.
