Fishing Jackets and Coats
Angling has been a popular global pastime for centuries, so its no surprise that fishing clothing items - especially fishing jackets and coats - are in high demand. Required to offer protection from the elements for long periods of time, fishing jackets and coats must meet specific criteria if theyre to live up to expectation.
Fishing jackets for stealth and style
Many anglers want their clothing to be as inconspicuous as possible while theyre out on a fishing trip. Natural olive greens, slate greys and earthy browns are popular because they help the wearer to blend in. Camouflage print combines style with stealth, so its a perfect look for fishing jackets and coats. As theyre often worn for long periods of time, fishing coats and jackets must be comfortable too.
Waterproof fishing jackets and coats
From a light drizzle, to a torrential downpour, its inevitable that UK anglers will spend lots of time in the rain! A waterproof fishing jacket is therefore essential. Durable, waterproof fabric keeps the wearer protected from the elements - ideal for offshore fishermen and experienced anglers - and specially designed cuffs stop water getting into the sleeves.
Thermal insulated fishing jackets
Thermal or insulated fishing jackets and coats enable anglers to face the elements, whatever the weather. From hooded fleece jackets , to multi-layered coats complete with breathable mesh lining, thermal fishing coats (which often have fleece lined hoods and collars) will keep the wearer warm and comfortable even in extremely cold temperatures.
Soft shell fishing jackets and coats
Soft shell fishing jackets are soft, comfortable and flexible. Usually made from a hardwearing waterproof, windproof and also breathable fabric, soft shell fishing jackets combine the functionality of a waterproof jacket with the warmth of a fleece. Perfect for UK anglers who tend to spend lots of time getting cold and wet!
