The Journey Of A Premium Hooded Fishing Shirt

The Journey Of A Premium Hooded Fishing Shirt

When the Yellowfins rage, the water churns. The crew's clamor escalates to the torpedoing yellowfin tuna smashing a bait pod. The sea mist smacks your face, and you like it. The splatter matches the blood on your hooded fishing shirt. It's a feeling that seaman don't have to write down to remember. This mayhem is what you crave

If you've lost your edge in life, you can find it again out on the water. From feeding frenzies to prepping the day's catch, they are daily dangers and thrills of weather, the sea, and creatures.

These epic marine experiences are the mayhem behind our inspiration, not for the faint of heart. Save yourself a Google search for "fishing shirt with hood," and we'll tell you the story behind the BRINY's hooded fishing shirts.



Behind the Artwork

The yellowfin tuna still vivid in his head, our founder and marine illustrator Simon Cox hit the drawing table. With various ideas swimming around for a new hooded fishing shirt, Simon hoped to document his wild encounter. After all, it’s what every angler loves, and it’s what we are all about.

Narrowing down elements

Our selection of hooded fishing shirts is made from UV protective clothing, keeping our folk cloaked at UPF 50+. Briny’s protective long sleeves are engineered with a lightweight advanced moisture-wicking SeaGuard performance fishing fabric with antimicrobial properties.


Our founder Simon wanted illustrations that interplayed the action-packed scene and a graphic motif to match the intention.


The custom performance hooded fishing shirts we ordered are incredibly high quality. The shirts are cut for fishermen. It's like an athletic cut. Nothing hangs or is baggy to catch your rod. Nor is it too tight. Customer service is top notch too. Highly recommended

Traditionally, the seaman has always looked to the birds, nature’s fish finder. BRINY relies on the Frigate bird, so we’ve given him a place on the front of our proprietary CloakCamo shirts. 

This high baller of a bird is incredibly fast and skillful in the air. Spot him maneuvering effortlessly, gliding over the water, or diving in to catch some tail.


It’s Life Or Death


There’s nothing like a good show. And Simon hoped to capture the sea creatures in their natural feeding frenzy in a dynamic illustration for the new BRINY hooded fishing shirts.


"A flying fish darting away desperately from the yellowfin tuna.

Tunas fighting for a meal.

The acrobatic moves of the frigate bird."


Choosing The Elements For the New Lineup

Our featured selection of prized game fish for our new line is well worthy of an angler’s day on the water:


Yellow Fin Tuna:

  • Their size, some are up to 400+ pounds
  • A true bulldog fighting spirit



  • Aside from being an excellent meal, redfish are loads of fun to stalk and sight fish.


White Marlin:

  • One of the Kings of offshore fishing
  • One of the fastest! They have been known to reach speeds of up to 68mph!
  • Their long, sword-like upper jaw makes them one of the most recognizable fish. Also, they’ll slash through fish without a second thought


Microtech UPF +50 fabric

As an avid angler, BRINY has kept to the elements prolonged the hours of bliss on the water, and kept any discomfort at bay. The key to a seaman’s performance and hooded performance fishing shirts is UPF +50 fabric and comfort.


The Microtech fabric that we developed is lightweight, durable, and comfortable. No one considers the fit of a hooded fishing shirt crucial until it's uncomfortable. Your body should be free to sway with your catch. Keep it off the boat if you ever find yourself tangled in wet gear. The BRINY Hooded fishing shirt is designed for long hours of exposure to the sun during an all-day offshore fishing expedition.


Color Selection

Once the design is approved, our team moves on to adding color, adding some soothing marine colors to the mix. Our choice of lighter color allows the least amount of solar absorption. In this case, the ice-blue makes the warm greys pop.


Designed for Moving

The preference of apparel lies in its ability to stay out of the way. The benefits don't end there. An essential aspect of your favorite clothing is that you forget about it once it's on. Our designers are seasoned professionals in the design & custom art industry; their expertise (and love for the sport) guides every element and stitch on the shirt.


Our upf fishing shirts allow a seamless transition from task to task, designed for a comfortable fit, easy breathing, and quicker drying.

As you run from one rod to the next, your shirt is doing as much work as you are to dry you off, cool you through, and protect you from the sun gods. Sounds like a lot? Well, it'll need a bit more to become your go-to.


The last thing you need to be thinking while you are out on the water is changing to something more comfortable. That's why we've donned out seamen with the lightest, airiest fabrics.

Briny BARRICADE™ Ultra Performance men's hooded fishing shirt is made from a SeaGuard Fabric, 4.1OZ 100% that's odor and stain resistant while coupled with antimicrobial support with reinforced stitching to keep you going.


Performance Meets Art

The weight of designing the perfect hoodie for your next adventure also comes with its perks. From Marlin to Mahi Mahi, these beasts got your back as the artwork is meticulously dye-sublimated onto the microtech performance fabric. Never actually in liquid form, dye-sublimation transfers onto the shirt beautifully, free of textures and disruptions with airflow.


Your favorite new shirt stays out of your way (while you look good) so that you can stay focused on your next catch.



Our goal was to design a shirt that's out with you on the water. The BARRICADE™ Ultra Performance men's hooded fishing shirt is our favorite hoodie and finds itself on land as often as it does out at sea. It's built for the waterman but enjoyed by all.


So whether the sun's out or not the next time you chase some tail, what matters is that you got your favorite hoodie with you.
