The Dog Days of Summer are upon us, when Sirius rises just before the sun, and the afternoons become devastatingly hot. It’s the time of year when regardless of how draining the heat and humidity might be, people are making every effort to get outside to fill the final days of the season with summertime fun.
If you’re hitting the great outdoors this August, do it in style and show your support for the United States Naval Academy (USNA) with a purchase from the collection of new summertime apparel!
Keep cool out on the water with this Men’s short sleeve fishing shirt. Available in navy blue, the left breast pocket features a gold N* logo. At 2.35 ounces, this light and airy shirt stays cool with mesh-backed shoulder vents and includes useful features like a microfiber glass cleaning cloth located in a side-seam pocket. Perfect for keeping a pair of polarized fishing sunglasses clear and spot-free. And while water is great at intensifying dangerous UV rays, this 100% micro-polyester provides UPF+ 50 sun protection so you can focus on finding fish not shade.
After a day on the water, spend an evening on the Yard with friends and family playing Midnopoly! This twist on the classic game celebrates the United States Naval Academy.
