Increased Sun Protection From Daiwa

Cypress, CA – Fishing being the outdoors pursuit that it is, one thing you can count on in summer is feeling the sun’s brilliant rays. Of course, it’s not always that pleasant and we have to worry about exposure on our bodies—especially the face.

Enter two of Daiwa’s latest products—DAIWA US Straw Hat and DAIWA US Sun Mask—that used in tandem can make a sunny fishing day far more comfortable and safe.

Manufactured by leading outdoors attire manufacturer AFTCO, the DAIWA US Sun Mask is a slip-over gaiter that protects both the neck and face. Emblazoned with the Daiwa D-VEC logo, it’s literally as cool looking as it is functional. MSRP $19.99.

The straw hat is a staple to be certain; anglers have been wearing them for decades for protection and comfortability. That’s where the similarities to old school hats ends however. The Daiwa straw hat features an unique outer trim to prevent fraying and a convenient chin strap to keep the lid from blowing off. Also marked with a DAIWA D-VEC patch, you can wear the hat with pride of ownership. MSRP $39.99.
