Vass-Tex 175 Team Vass Smock
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

The uninitiated may associate Vass with just waders – you know the ones: yellow straps which every big named angler parades around in. But the British luxury design house’s angling-wear line has consistently impressed us here at CARPology, particularly with their 175 Smock, which boasts all the same mind-blowing features of the Edition 3 version but now comes in a stunning “carpy” khaki pantone.

Features a foldaway hood
A large front pocket with funnel storm flat

Team Vass 175 Smock Khaki Edition

Sidestep heavy, restrictive jackets and opt for this tried and tested light and comfortable smock which from this month comes in a special new ‘Khaki Edition’ colour. The All-Way Stretch Vass-Tex 175 material used on this over-the-head jacket offers complete comfort with minimal restriction, and isn’t just a quick-wicking, insanely waterproof fabric but also one which is incredibly breathable so you won’t sweat. A wide collar with Velcro fastening, foldaway hood, large front pocket with funnel storm flat complete the detailing in fine style. Available in sizes S to XXXL.

“GIMME”: £69.96; vassrainwear.co.uk

Velcro fastenings
Whilst the bib & brace feature Vass’s iconic yellow elastic braces

Team Vass 175 Bib & Brace Khaki Edition

Bib ‘n’ Braces have been a winter standby among carp folk for generations: they’re waterproof and offer loads of insulation. Now whilst this new khaki coloured offering from Vass isn’t winter lined, just like the Smock (this means they can then be used for summer and winter use by adding layers underneath), their design is based on the Team Vass Sea Fishing Waterproofs which were built and tested in the harshest of sea fishing environments, so performance, reliability and comfort is 100% guaranteed. The ‘Khaki Edition’ feature Velcro fastening ankles, reinforced knees with an option to insert kneepads, along with Vass’s iconic yellow elastic braces. Available in sizes S to XXXL.

“GIMME”: £55.96
