Fortis Snugpak FJ6 Jacket
What happens when you cross the pin-up of carping cool, with veterans of the outdoor clothing industry? Well, this…

Just when you thought the collaboration between Fortis and Snugpak couldn’t get any sweeter, they go and drop the FJ6 on us! The brands already have an enviable following among even the most hardcore of cynics, perhaps because each garment that leaves the Snugpak factory has been designed, cut, stitched and filled right here in the UK.

The experts at Snugpak have poured every last second of their 30 years of experience making extreme-weather clothing into this new jacket, following the clever design brief from Fortis. As an angler, your every need has been thought of, designed for and met in this pioneering garment. Its three-quarter length proportions have been tailored to keep out draughts while you’re sitting down and articulated patterning and precise tailoring allows the FJ6 to move as you move. Specially lengthened sleeves won’t restrict your full range of movement when casting and then of course there’s the materials…

Snugpak’s Paratex outer shell is a clever micro-fabric that sends the wind back the way it came, and even repels rain (choose from painfully cool DPM and classy Olive finishes). The guts of the jacket are made from Softie Premier filling, which traps heat and will keep you toasty in temperatures down to a flesh-pincering -5 degrees. Ultimately, this is a jacket that we can confidently say has been designed with us in mind. Whether you’re a fashion-conscious carper, or you simply appreciate mountaineering-grade outerwear, the Fortis/Snugpak collab is bearing fruit for you, in a big way!

We've always loved Snugpak. We've always loved Fortis's style and the modern-twists they apply, so the outcome of this collaboration can only result in one thing: complete awesomeness!
