I used to rock the sleeves on my mtb but for fishing I now always wear a hooded sun shirt.

I have a few brands but the Columbia one I have is my favorite.

I worked in oncology for long enough that I even wear them when I’m mowing the lawn. Neighbors thought I was crazy at first. Now a couple of them are rocking them. Haha.

I have stage 4 metastatic Melanoma. The danger of skin cancer is real.
When I was a kid, I slathered Sea-n-Ski on myself for many years until they discovered the lotion caused cancer. Then I switched to a lotion without the offending chemical. Recently, they took that lotion off the market due to causing Cancer.
I no longer trust the Pharma companies that claim to provide ”safe” lotions that prevent cancer.
Melanoma is linked to Sun Exposure, however there is no real evidence the Sun actually causes it. It appears to be a genetic immune system weakness. You can get Melanoma in the crack of your ass literally “where the sun don’t shine”
.
So, rather than slathering possible cancer causing chemicals on my skin, I cover.

Hat, HUK sun mask, Sun glasses, Columbia PFG long sleeve shirt, Buff fingerless gloves, long pants, sandals with socks.
