TRAVEL WITH ORVIS
With Orvis there’s no need to compromise on quality and durability when you want to travel light and save space at home or abroad
HELIOS 3D 9FT FIVE-WEIGHT ROD £849
Although there are many models available, the Helios 3D rods are renowned for their power and accuracy at distance. The 9ft fiveweight is probably as close as it gets to the perfect all-rounder for just about any trout-fishing scenario you will encounter around the world. Helios 3 is a great leap forwards in rod-making technology. Tracking has been improved by much reduced oscillation and ovalisation. As a result, maximum energy is transferred during the cast.
LONG-SLEEVED OPEN-AIR CASTER SHIRT £79
This light and highly ventilated shirt will keep you cool and shield your skin from the sun. It has a mesh-lined back and upper chest, roll-up sleeve tabs, and a sunglasses cleaning cloth in the shirttail. There’s also a zipped security pocket and UPF 40 sun protection. Available in moss, white, pale orange, sky blue, navy or red.
ULTRALIGHT WADING BOOTS £179
Durability and performance without heft. Excellent for negotiating airline weight restrictions and reducing the energy expended when walking. The upper is made from fast-drying Clarino, which has a better strengthto-weight ratio than leather. A Vibram EVA midsole gives comfort over tough terrain. Vibram outsole has Orvis’s lug pattern for solid traction. Accepts studs. Men’s and women’s styles available in many sizes.
ULTRALIGHT WADING JACKET £249
A smart, minimalist jacket that packs down so that it can easily be carried in a small day bag. It’s made from a two-way stretch, three-layer shell that’s waterproof and windproof. The jacket moves with you, keeping you dry and comfortable whatever the temperature or activity. Fitted with lots of pockets, Dolphin Skin cuffs and an adjustable hood. Women’s version available.
ULTRALIGHT FOAM FLY-BOXES FROM £16.50
Made from light, moulded foam and fitted with micro-slits that allow flies to be backed in without damaging the foam. Drop the box in the water and it floats, making retrieval easier. A magnetic closure keeps everything safe. In medium or large (£18.50).
ULTRALIGHT CONVERTIBLE WADERS £325
A light, durable, high-performance wader. Its modern fit with anatomically correct feet provides great comfort. Fidlock Snap magnetic fasteners allow easy conversion to waist-high and back. The four-layer shell resists punctures and abrasion. Storage is provided by an external pocket with waterresistant YKK zip and fly patch, and a large stretch-mesh inner pocket. Ultralight Waders and Boots come in men’s and women’s sizes.
Box available in storm grey or citron (pictured).
