It’s important to stay covered and protect yourself out there fishing and exposed to the elements. It might seem counterintuitive to be wearing long clothing in hot temps. I’ve had the beginning stages of heat sickness a couple of times and it’s not fun. Sometimes, your first symptom is instant puking. And, what’s worse, is that for some people, once you cross that line, it’s hard to cool off again. Columbia makes some of the lightest, most comfortable, and cooling materials I’ve seen. Additionally, convertible pants makes it easy to switch to shorts if you feel the need. These are easily an essential piece of kayak fishing gear.
The convertible version of the technical Backcast Pant featuring zip-off legs that convert to shorts, the men’s Backcast Convertible Pant is as versatile as it gets—delivering all the quick-drying performance and lightweight comfort you need for splashing through rivers, fishing off docks, and rambling down beaches. UPF 50 sun protection shields you from the sun’s damaging rays, while a partial elastic waistband and interior mesh brief provide comfort and fit.
