Fox Chunk Clothing
Aside from producing award-winning products such as rods, reels and bite alarms, Fox are also now pretty deadly when it comes to clothing...

Less than two years ago, Fox might not have been the first name on many people’s lips when it came to answering, “Who does the best angling clothing?” but after looking at this, their new Chunk collection, you’ll see they’re now a big deal when it comes to dressing you for both the bank and the pub.

From super heavyweight hoods and cardies to technical base layers and super soft and comfortable joggers, everything about this new collection is high-tech, sharp, outstandingly sown and woven together and unlike any other clothing you’ll find in your local tackle store – there’s even an inspired Terry Hearn/Black Mirror heavyweight knitted jumper. foxint.com

Chunky Heavy Knit Jumper

The bid for the ultimate carpy-looking jumper has officially been nipped in the bud and it looks like this (insert finger pointing up). Based on and inspired by the ‘old school’ look (think: Hearn, Sharp and co.), it’s a classic military style, heavy knit jumper with faux suede reinforced shoulder patches. It not only looks stunning, it’s bloody functional, too. All that heavy knit means you’re hotter than a polar bear in a onesie and because it’s ‘old school’, it features very low key branding. Here’s to the return of grunge!

“GIMME”: £34.99

Sizes: S to XXXL

Chunk Mid Layer Comfort Set

The mid layer is a ubiquitous trend when winter arrives – and for good reason. In addition to their Base Layer set, Fox have also developed this ultra comfortable Mid Layer Comfort Set which is designed to be worn over said Base Layer when using a layering system to keep warm in the winter. It’s not only great for the above reasons, but it’s also lovely to sleep in during really cold nights. And like the Base Layer set, this is designed to be quick drying and features moisture wicking performance too. Like the other garments, this is available in S to XXXL.

“GIMME”: £49.99

Chunk Base Layer

When fighting off the cold, it’s easy to overload on the layers and end up looking and moving like the Michelin Man. Enter Fox’s new two-piece, super thin, yet super warm outfit to create your base layer. Comprising of top and bottoms, they’re the ideal base to wear beneath mid and outer layer garments, and thanks to being made from a quick drying and breathable material with moisture wicking performance, they’re your new best friend for avoiding hypothermia this winter. Available in sizes S to XXXL.

“GIMME”: £29.99

Chunk Heavy Hoody

Hoodie of the collection? Under normal circumstances we’d say ‘no competition’, but most collections don’t feature another hoodie like their Heavy Sherpa Hoody! This is a true beaut though, not just because it’s exceptionally warm thanks to featuring a fleece-lining, but because of all the detailing – detailing such as branded metal eyelets and chunky drawcords; pockets which feature hand-warming micro fleece; and high-quality, heavy-duty branded zips. This hood also matches their Joggers should you want a one-piece looking outfit.

“GIMME”: £44.99
Sizes: S to XXXL.

Chunk Heavy Sherpa Hoody

The ultimate angling garment, the hoodie, has timeless appeal. We started the early version, but Fox have just cemented its thoughts on how a hoodie should be in 2014. The Heavy Sherpa Hoodie is even a garment Fox themselves have pulled out as a standout item, and offers the perfect blend of stylish mixed with practical features and a quality to rival any item made by Penfield or North Face. In terms of features, it’s loaded: fleece-lined for exceptional warmth and comfort; it’s breathable to help prevent sweating and has a sculpted fit.

“GIMME”: £69.99
Sizes: S to XXXL

Chunk Body Warmer

Stay warm and weather-resistant this season with the range’s eye-catching Body Warmer. Comfort comes thanks to the quilted lining; warmth thanks to being stuffed to the proverbial seam with a special blend of insulating polyester fibres and a full-length zip baffle to aid insulation; weather protection thanks to being constructed from a hardwearing, shower-proof nylon; and functionality courtesy of an internal security pocket and high-quality, heavy-duty branded zips throughout. And like all the garments within the collection, the Body Warmer features minimal branding.

“GIMME”: £59.99;
Sizes: S to XXXL

Chunk Medium Knit Cardigan

Another classic garment which has ‘old school’ heritage running all through its special blend of knitted fabrics, and another one which will find huge popularity amongst those who prefer this classic knit look. This zip-through cardy jacket is breathable to help prevent sweating and along with a sculpted fit to increase warmth and comfort, it features a turtleneck to help keep draughts out. As with all the Chunk garments, high-quality, heavy-duty branded zips have been used and there’s very low key branding.

“GIMME”: £49.99
Sizes: S to XXXL

Chunk Hooded Jacket

Whilst the age-old hoodie has been the staple of British anglers for years, there’s still a need for technical hooded jacket – one just like this. It’s primarily designed to protect you from the wind, but it also features a rain repellent finish to keep you dry during short showers. The hem and hood feature cinch-lock drawcords, whilst elsewhere you’ll find Fox’s signature heavy-duty branded zips, a check pocket for additional storage and low key branding on the left breast.

“GIMME”: £69.99
Sizes: S to XXXL

Chunk Heavy Joggers

Fox have made jogging bottoms in the past, but for this new Chunk collection they’ve really upped the must-have ante with these Heavy Joggers. Sharing many of the same great features as the Heavy Hoody, namely the 80% cotton and 20% polyester outer and 100% polyester lining, which in carp angler language means they’re incredibly soft, incredibly warm (they have a micro fleece-lining – lush!) and the missus won’t be able to shrink them. Fine detailing and features come courtesy of a chunky drawcord, elasticated ankles and heavy-duty branded zips.

“GIMME”: £34.99
Sizes: S to XXXL.
