I’ve needed to use a lot of wet weather gear over my fishing life so I know how important it is to have gear that you can really rely on. The Snowbee Classic Breathable mid length jacket and trousers give anglers the perfect peace of mind to go out in all weather.

Mid length jacket

The jacket is purpose designed to be used in a boat, shore or bank. It has ample room to move yet the light weight coat allows your body to breath without over heating or perspiring.

The coat features a two way zip in the front, four main Velcro flap front pockets of a very useful size, a pair of fleece lined hand warmer zip closed side pockets. Its dark moss green colour, matching the trousers, is ideal for wading as it won’t disturb fish so its perfect for those cold days on trout water!

There’s also an elastic waist draw cord for a snug and completely water proof fit, an adjustable draw cord operated hood concealed within the snug neck collar and, best of all, are Velcro adjusted sleeve cuff sections to keep water out of clothing worn under the coat.

trouser Smart

The coat is good enough to be worn on its own, such is its durability and length, but complementing it are a pair of very smartly tailored 100% waterproof high waisted trousers; they’re as efficient as rain gear but as comfy as a tracksuit.

It has a host of special features designed to keep you dry and comfortable, which include a full length fly with two way zip, quick release and adjustable braces, Velcro waist band and an inner waterproof gusset that has over 30cm of adjustment. They trousers also feature a rear elasticised waist section to ensure the trousers don’t open the slightest bit when sitting in a boat.

A pair of large, bellows style, side pockets will take care of lunch and a bit of other tucker when on the water and there’s an additional pocket on the right thigh area for any extras.

Ankle areas of the trousers can be zipped open to make them fit over boots or waders, and the heavy Velcro section right at the bottom (the same as the cuffs) will ensure the user will remain as dry as possible.

Most importantly heavy use contact areas, such as the seat and the ankle section, are heavily reinforced with extra material to withstand scuffing or chaffing for prolonged use.

Overall, this is a top quality wet weather outfit that should last the user a life time. Sizes range from M through to XXL.
