Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two May Not Be Enough I liked my first Open Caster so well I bought a second. If I am not fly fishing when I wear it I would like to be. With long sleeves I get the sun protection I need with being too warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Open air caster I have several of these shirts and love both the look and material. I will say the sizing is a bit inconsistent-I have an xl in light blue and a large in it’s a bit tricky ordering online. Regardless it’s a great shirt that is very breathable and high SPF for a day on the water.
