Speero's Adara might just be the only angling coat you need

Speero might not have been around for long, but just over a year since they arrived on the carp scene they have certainly solidified a reputation for quality fabrics. The luggage range, which we’ve reviewed before, has been a big hit and the clothes have been equally well received. This jacket has the hallmarks of a typically well-considered product.



THE BIG FIVE
1. Protected but not smothered
Most jackets can offer protection from the elements, but you can pay the price in sweat! This one’s not like that. It’s got a 10,000mm breathability rating alongside a 10,000mm hydrostatic-head waterproof rating. That means you’ll stay dry but you won’t be baked alive in warmer conditions.

2. Solidly stylish
This is undoubtedly a stylish garment that isn’t trying too hard to be something it’s not. The orange detailing on the zippers sets off the lovely muted green outer and no-nonsense dark lining. It’s elegantly cut, too.

3. Plenty of storage
There are a total of four zipped pockets on the Adara. There are two large pockets just located just above hip height and two more side-access compartments at chest level. The latter pair is fully waterproofed for storing expensive essentials.

4. Fully adjustable
When the weather is closing in and you’re out in the elements, a snug fit is crucial. The Adara offers an adjustable hem with elasticated drawcord and cuffs that can be tightened or loosened with Velcro. The hood also has a toggle drawcord.

5. Ease of access
There’s a lovely finish to this jacket, with its nylon outer given a PU coating. It’s also easy to slip on with large, high-quality zips that can be undone from the bottom up when nature calls or for making adjustments to any under garments. £89.95
