Top-quality Vass waders are sure to please
Vass is the choice of top carpers
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.
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.
