As Autumn kicks in, it’ll be soon time to look at that extra layer of clothing, even during the day. Gone are the days when fishing clothing was nothing more than “something green” and fashion conscious fishing men and women will certainly want to look the business when out on the banks.
So with that in mind, we’ve taken a look at 5 different hoodies, designed to keep you warm, while looking cool on the bank.
Fox Black / Orange Pullover Style Hoodie:
What we like about this hoodie is that it’s actually very understated. It has the fox logo on the front breast, arm and shoulder and also the logo on the back. It’s a pullover style, so there is no zip at the front and it also has an orange collar and chord. It’s classy, not too over the top comes in a range of sizes to suit all. Prices online from around £35.
Nash ZT Ice Hoodie:
The Nash ZT Ice is a little bit more robust than the Fox and features a double thickness thermal main body for extra warmth. It also comes with elbow pads, zip up kangaroo side pockets and a very handy velcro phone pocket. The hood is also double lined and like the Fox, it’s a pullover style hoodie. It retails for around £49, so a bit more money than the Fox but it will certainly do the business on those colder afternoons.
Guru Black “Knowledge is Power” Hoodie
For those that fish carp matches, this Guru Black & Orange Hoodie, should prove to be a real winner. Its got thumb holes in the cuffs to keep your hands warm, elasticated panels for “no restriction” casting and the front hand warmer pouch has 2 concealed safety pockets built in. Priced at about £35, it represents decent value for money too.
Navitas – Camo BSC Hoodie
Offering the more traditional Camo coloured hoodie, The Navitas comes with a 300gsm 3 thread fleece, a double layered hood and an internal storage pocket for your phone. It probably lacks the out and out style of some of the other hoodies but it’s functional, the logo is discreet and if you love your camo, well this might be one for you. It’s retailing for around the £35 mark.
Wychwood Black Tech Hoodie:
This Wychwood Hoodie uses a high performance fabric, designed to keep you warmer than a traditional hoodie, due to it’s bonded fleece. It’s also been given a water repellent finish to protect against the elements. It comes with an SBS zipped chest pocket plus 2 further hand warmer pockets and comes with an adjustable hood. It’s priced at around £49.99, making it a little more in most but what it might lack in overall style, it should make up for in overall performance.
So there are our 5 hoodies of choice but there are plenty more out there for you to look at. Just make sure you protect yourselves against the elements, keep warm and dry and stay safe on the banks at all times.
