A boot above the rest
Vass, the pros (think: Pecky, Blair, Armstrong and co.) most-loved wader company has a new offering for this summer and we believe it’s their best yet

To survive at sea, any garment needs to be pretty darn tough. But for a pair of waders, they need to be extremely hardcore. They need to be super waterproof and tough yet non-restrictive, fitted with comfortable and grippy boots, and come with plenty of reinforcements in the vulnerable wear areas.

Wide braces with quick release buckles

Vass, advanced waterproof clothing and wader specialists, have been setting the standard for quality waders for the passed 40 years, and their latest model, the Vass-Tex 305 5L Breathable Wader, has been designed and developed to cope with just that: the most hostile sea fishing environment.

There’s two pockets on the Vass-Tex 305 5L’s: one on the outside and one on the in, and both are zipped

From the base up, they’ve used their tried and tested ‘Vass Boot’, which has a wider calf and foot fitting for extra comfort and ease of fitting into when in a rush (read: reacting to a one-noter). Built onto these, Vass have used their most advanced material: the ultra-tough and reliable Vass-Tex 305 5L. It’s tough, breathable and in many cases, up to three times more waterproof than other leading breathable waders! And to ensure there’s zero chance of any water ingress, they’ve used the new Vass-Ultra 25mm Triple Bonded Non Stitch Technical Seam.

Reinforced knees

And whilst the quality and reliability is sea-worthy-approved (read: they’ll last a lifetime), they do offer everything a carp angler requires on a day-to-day basis: easy to roll down into position; feature a large heel kicker to make removal easy; a wider fit which ensures good air circulation and comfort; front and inside zipped pockets; adjustable waist belt with buckle; and reinforced knees. Quite frankly, you can’t get a better set of waders – feature and construction-wise. Available in sizes 6 to 13.

“GIMME”: £249.95; vass-tex.com
