Top-qual­ity Vass waders are sure to please

Vass is the choice of top carpers

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

LOOK closely at any cur­rent big-carp tro­phy shot and it’s odds-on that the an­gler will be decked out in a pair of bright yel­low Vass shoul­der braces.

These waders now seem to play as big a part in the pic­ture as the fish it­self!

It’s not as though Vass, a com­pany which for more than 40 years has spe­cialised in ad­vanced water­proof cloth­ing and waders, has made a big play for the coarse fish­ing mar­ket.

Its prod­ucts have al­ways been ex­tremely pop­u­lar with sea an­glers, quick to recog­nise that Vass waders are su­perbly com­fort­able, fully water­proof and long-lived – some­thing hard to achieve in a harsh salt wa­ter en­vi­ron­ment.

But only in re­cent times have they pinged the coarse an­gler’s radar – mainly thanks to the Korda-backed Dar­rell Peck and Nash’s Alan Blair pos­ing for cover shots while wear­ing these sig­na­ture yel­low-strapped waders.

By far the most pop­u­lar with an­glers are Vass 700E Su­per Nova heavy-duty waders with knee re­in­force­ments, chunky soles for ex­tra grip, and a large heel kicker to help you take them off.

If, though, it’s supreme com­fort that you seek, look no fur­ther than Vass-Tex 305-5L heavy-duty breath­able waders (pic­tured). This top-end boot has a wide fit on the calf and foot to main­tain good air cir­cu­la­tion and cater for larger wear­ers.

You get re­in­forced knee ar­eas, an elas­ti­cated waist belt, two zipped pock­ets, two D-ring at­tach­ment points, and sturdy box-stitched re­in­force­ments. An elas­ti­cated brace loop has a quick-re­lease buckle for safety’s sake, and 25mm triple bonded seams make these su­per waders vir­tu­ally bomb-proof.

Price: £249.99

VASS T-SHIRT For those who en­joy the iconic yel­low Vass shoul­der straps – but don’t want to wear their waders ev­ery time they fish – this smart, tongue-in-cheek Ringspun cot­ton T-shirt with its camo de­sign and Vass logo should hit the spot. An ideal base layer un­der Vass wa­ter­proofs. Price: £19.95 Medium (38ins-40ins) to XXL (46ins) VASS FRONT POCKET The chest area of the waders has a water­proof zipped front pocket for small tackle items that fea­tures the iconic Vass logo. VASS MA­TE­RIAL Con­structed from a hard-wear­ing but fully breath­able Vass-Tex 305 ma­te­rial. All non-stitched seams are triple­bonded for zero wa­ter en­croach­ment. BOOT With a slightly wider fit, the Vass boot can be worn with thicker socks with­out pinch­ing. The en­larged heel kicker also makes re­mov­ing them a quick and easy task.
