NEW TACKLEWORLD GERALDTON SHIRTS
We are proud to say with a little hard work we have finally been able to come up with a shirt that truly represents our store and location, Lloyd our fishing manager set out to get a quality photo of the iconic West Oz Dhu Fish and that he did. The picture Lloyd chose is perfect and captures Dhu Fish exactly the way we wanted to.
These new TW gero shirts are all long sleeve for full sun protection and are made from the highest quality, Australian weaved polyester. This "sports dry" material is designed for the tropics (we'd know, the shirts have been extensively tested in the hot midwest sun) and is incredibly soft to feel, unbelievably cool, durable, UPF 50, 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 we proudly stand by (or in) ours. We produce a range of shirts that not only look great, but our customers want to wear for their comfort, style and of course sun protection.
These shirts are also proudly 100% Australian made.
Our shirt features -
UPF 50 broad-spectrum sun protection from 97.5% of UVA & UVB rays.
Completely designed, printed, manufactured and distributed in Australia
Ultra cool, designed in the tropics to be lightweight, soft and comfortable.
“No feel” - The dye actually becomes part of the fabric and does not inhibit the breathing qualities of the material, no matter what the colour.
The breathable, quick drying fabric won’t slow down an active outdoor lifestyle like a heavy, wet, clammy cotton shirt, yet it provides over 5 times the UPF protection.
Wont wash off like sunscreen. Easy to use-reduces the hassle and uncertainty of applying body-covering sunscreen.
Quick drying, won’t fade or break down - great in all weathers! Bright colors make your child easy to spot!
