We take feedback from the AFTCO Pro Team seriously. AFTCO collaborated directly with Jason Christie to produce a performance sun protection shirt that would help his comfort and effectiveness when dealing with long hours of sun exposure on the water. Meet the Jason Christie signature sun protection hoodie by AFTCO. Jason’s direct feedback was instrumental to fine tune our already popular Samurai hooded performance shirt. Jason took additional measures to modify the hood of his Samurai shirts to improve the sun protection coverage on his face and prevent glare. The AFTCO product development team worked alongside Jason to adapt his unique modifications and produce a performance sun protection shirt with an increased hood size, neck closure system and an integrated hat visor sleeve. These specific features requested by Jason improves the surface area of sun protection on your face, neck, and ears while reducing overall glare from the sun’s reflection on the water.

Good and Could Be Better...
Used once and felt some improvements could be made. I felt the face shielding portion needs to be improved to ensure the nose can be covered. At the same time I think some kind of ventilation is needed for breathing…since we wear sunglasses they tend to fog up when breathing, especially through the nose. I would like to see finger coverings added to the end of the sleeves…four half fingers instead of the elastic thumb band would add protection. Did not use the pocket…don’t see a need for it. Otherwise I like the shirt and will continue to use it.
Made to fit , made by Hunters-Fisherman, made in the USA!!!
This was a early Fathers Day gift . I love it . Made out of quality material . Not the cheap super paper thin polyester gear that other companies charge an arm and. Leg for . This is made to last . Made to do what it says . That’s the way made in the USA Gear should be . You get quality made fabrics that are made by and for fisherman and hunters and etc. like the saying “ IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE”. Same here with your Hunting/ fishing gear or clothing!!!
I fish bass tournaments every weekend and fish at least 3 times a week and this hoodie is the best I've ever experienced. I have tried huk, free fly, Columbia and nothing can out perform this product. Anti microbial is the ticket. But the quality is where it's at. Looking for an avid tournament fisherman to represent your company in your guy.
Best sun shirt made
I have tested this shirt. Many days fishing 10 hour days in the sun at 90-100 degrees clear lake California. This shirt is very comfortable and keeps you cool in the sun. Excellent sun protection Around the face area. The extra fabric on the hood really help and is adjustable when waring a hat, you can pull back the hood slightly or forward for complete sun protection on the face. No sunscreen needed. Just purchased for my sons also. I have the samurai sun shirts also but this one is much more protection. I’m 6’3” 270 lbs 56” chest, the 3x fits great not tight at all. Best $50 you can spend. No shin cancer on the face! Nice job aftco!
Positive review you may not want to publicize
The Jason Christie Hoodie was over-the-top for me. Perfect for Florida at midday I’m sure. On the other hand the Samurai is a wonderful garment for me. I recently ordered a heather one which I noticed after awhile does not come emblazoned with logos. The NASCAR driver look isn’t me. I have two of the emblazoned ones already—also wonderful garments. Here is the part you might want to keep on the down-low. Samurais make excellent pajamas . You see my wife wants to sleep with the windows and patio door flung open and the covers thrown back. I’m cold that way. But, with a Samurai I pull up the hood and I’m cosy and domestic detente is reached. Mind you as a bed partner I do look like the Creature from the Black Lagoon or an Ingmar Bergman anti-hero but so far that hasn’t inhibited us. In fact . . .
