WHO WE ARE After spending too much time battling the brutal sun, stinging rain and biting bugs avid tournament angler and outdoor enthusiast Kent Hickman created Breathe Like A Fish Gillz, LLC in February 2009. The company changed its name to Gillz in October 2015 to match its brand name. The rebranding eliminated any confusion between its corporate and brand identities.

Every Gillz shirt and mask is 100% polyester, machine washable and quick drying. GillzTechTM resists stains, odors and snags. Blood and oil rinse out of our high-performance antimicrobial fabric the fights odor-causing bacteria. The fishing apparel’s microfiber provides the highest UPF50+ sun protection, blocking 98% of the UVA and UVB harmful rays. And the material’s tightly woven weave means the UPF50+ protection will NEVER wash out.

Our Tournament Shirts have built-in Cross-Breeze VentilationTM. These mesh side vents run on the inside of the sleeves and down the side of the shirt, keeping you dry and cool – even on the hottest days.

Our GillzMaskTM features GillzVentsTM on the sides, channeling air to your neck and down your shirt, to keep you cool and protected from sun and insects while reducing sunglass fog.

Finally, our Pro Striker Shirt gives you the both of best worlds by attaching our GillzMaskTM to our long sleeve shirts. Our fishing apparel truly is the Coolest Gear On The Planet.

MEET KENT I just want to stay on the water from sun up to sun down without fighting the sun or the bugs. It’s really man versus nature out there. So I drew some chicken scratch on the back of a napkin; I wanted clothes that protected my skin from the elements and breathed like a fish.

In February 2009, I designed a comfortable shirt with mesh panels on the side and a vented mask with gills. That sun gets brutally hot out there. Now I stay cool, dry and protected for the whole day while I am competing in a tournament or fishing with my family.
It’s that simple.

--Kent Hickman, Gillz Founder
