Wrangler adds fishing apparel to its All Terrain Gear with shirts and shorts that stretch, wick, and block UV rays.

The ATG Wrangler Angler Collection was designed for anglers with a focus on function and comfort. Its moisture-wicking fabrics should help you cool off as well as stretch to move with you.

Like the rest of the brand’s ATG apparel, the Angler Collection is available in a wide array of sizes and silhouettes to fit a broader audience.

Angler Collection

The Angler Collection includes men’s and women’s shirts, shorts, and dresses with traditional looks as well as long-sleeve performance tees made specifically for fishing in full sun.

Some pieces emphasize moving moisture away from your body while others offer some protection from splashing water as well. All of the pieces provide some level of sun protection, with some pieces rated up to UPF 50.

Below, we’ve rounded up some of the standouts in the collection to show off the different styles available.

Angler Long Sleeve Shirt — Women’sMen’s

WRANGLER_ATG Angler_SS22_Mens and Womens Angler Shirts

When you think fishing shirt, this is it — plus a few special features and the UPF 50 rating. Starting with a cotton-blend fabric that should give the shirt some stretch, it has two chest pockets (both with drain holes, one with a deployable dry patch), as well as rod loops to give yourself a free hand to swap tackle.

The shirt also has a tab to keep your sleeves rolled up. Mesh vents in the back yoke allow more airflow. And the final touch is a lens cleaner inside the hem.

Angler Short — Men’s

Performance Shirt — Men’s

This long-sleeve shirt’s moisture-wicking polyester is designed to offer protection from UV rays with its UPF 50 rating. If you need to stash it, there’s a locker loop in the neck so it can hang. The fabric and construction should also resist shrinking and wrinkling.

Hooded Sun Tee — Women’s

Utility Short — Men’s

These nylon-body shorts mix in a bit of stretch and UPF 50 protection from UV rays. According to Wrangler, they also have a water-repellent finish to shed water sprays. To live up to its “utility” name, the shorts have five pockets, including one zippered closure for a wallet and one with Velcro fastening.

Hike to Fish Short Sleeve Shirt — Men’s

The stretchy, wicking Hike to Fish short-sleeve shirt employs mesh venting in the back to assist with cooling while still providing sun protection. It’s built with a zip Napoleon pocket, a drop-in pocket with a secure closure, and even a lens cleaner tucked inside the hem.

Stretchy Sun Protection

If you’re an experienced angler, you may have seen someone start to sweat too much and take off their shirt. By the end of the day, they’re beet-red and complaining about sunburn.

It’s always a temptation when shore fishing because there’s often a breeze. But unlike sunscreen, a shirt only needs to be applied once.

Wrangler built much of the Angler Collection apparel from wicking materials and gave them some mesh venting. That should go a long way to keeping you dry and comfortable out on the water, and the long sleeves give you protection from UV rays.

Wrangler includes some of these strategies in its other ATG apparel too. However, the Angler Collection has little touches like the rod loops and open storage pockets that suit anglers better than hikers. Explore the rest of the collection to see more apparel made with fishing in mind.
