Bigfish Gear REPEL shirts protect you from bugs

BIGFISH Gear is a fishing apparel and graphic design company based in Darwin.

All Bigfish Gear shirts are made from the highest-quality, Australian-knitted polyester. This ‘sports dry’ material is designed for the tropics and is incredibly soft, unbelievably cool, durable, UPF50 and lightweight.  The material is much cooler than cotton, will not fade or shrink like cotton, does not require ironing and is far more durable.

Quite often the difference between a great-looking shirt and a great-wearing shirt is the quality of fabric and Bigfish proudly stands by (or in) its fabric. Bigfish Gear’s REPEL clothing range has all the features of the normal fabric (soft, cool, lightweight, durable and UPF50) but now you’ll also be repelling 95 percent of mosquitoes and other biting insects at the same time, cast after cast, all day and all night.

The new BFMaxflow REPEL is an advanced-formula, micro-emulsion treatment that ensures almost perfect transfer from the aqueous phase of the repellent to bond to fabric. It’s very effective at repelling – in fact it’s so good that it’ll retain 80 percent efficacy even after 50-70 washes.

For most, that’s an incredible number of days on the water to still be 80 percent effective after all that fishing, washing and wearing. All Bigfish Gear products (except hats and caps), from concept and design through printing to final seaming, are produced right here in Australia.
