Vass 700E Nova Heavy Duty PVC Chest Wader
Vass has been around for the past four decades, and as you’ll see, there’s a good reason why their waders are worn by the pros…

Advanced waterproof clothing and wader specialists, Vass, have been around for the last 40 years, but it’s only in recent times that they’ve really come onto the masses radars thanks to the likes of Darrell Peck, Jimmy Armstrong and Alan Blair all posing for cover shots whilst wearing the brand’s signature yellow-strapped waders.

Alan Blair is a big fan of the Vass brand

Specialising in honest, hardwearing waterproof attire, Vass’s most popular waders with carp anglers are these (the ones all the chaps on this page are wearing): the 700E Nova, which for 2015 boasts the addition of a new reinforced ‘Vass Boot’. Said boot has a wider calf and foot fitting for (a) more comfort and (b) to allow you to slip into them with much more ease. These boots also have tougher and chunkier soles for increased comfort, reliability and grip, and a larger heel kicker to help when taking the waders off.

Jimmy Armstrong has been using Vass waders for years

The 700E Nova is produced from the tried and tested high-quality Vass-Tex 700 smooth PVC outer with a soft polyester reverse which has a slight stretch for comfort but also to act as a shock absorber on the seams. And talking of those, these have Quad-Welded seams and elasticated and box-stitched brace loops to ensure extreme longevity and zero water leakage.

If you want the very best in features and craftsmanship, then make sure you check out this surprisingly affordable option – there’s a good reason why all these guys opt for these over the other brands you know.

Readying yourself for the spring showers as well as being able to take on the harsher conditions of the British winter can be tough. But when Vass delights us with this ‘Khaki Edition’ of their award-winning 175 Smock, it makes life in the rain or cold simpler, drier and warmer
