FILSON UPGRADES FLY FISHING PRODUCT OFFERING IN SPRING 2013
In Spring 2013, Filson will introduce a fly fishing assortment that will offer updated design technologies to better suit the angler. Borrowing design cues from Filson’s current wading jacket, the Men’s Guide Wading Jacket is constructed from a waterproof, breathable 4-layer fabric and features designs that will enhance the fly fisherman’s experience. Enhancements include: highly, water resistant YKK zippers, a drawcord hood, and adjustable, double cuffs to seal out water. Large front flap pockets and D-ring hooks allow for plenty of space to attach tools and store gear. MSRP: $375.
To accompany the Guide Wading Jacket, Filson also introduces the Men’s Guide Waders. Available in regular and king sizes, the waders use a combination of four-layer and five-layer fabrics in strategic areas for maximum performance. The waterproof, breathable design is salt water resistant. Performance elements include a gusseted crotch and articulated knees for freedom of movement, outer leg seams for greater durability, neoprene booties for a watertight seal and heat retention for standing use in cold water. The suspenders are removable for quick conversion to waist-high waders with a removable belt and drawstring top closure. Classic Filson design elements include bridle leather trim, Filson brass snaps on the mesh front pocket and lined Mackinaw wool hand-warmer pocket. MSRP: $450, $470 for king length
Designed for wear under your wading jacket and waders, the Men’s Midweight Polartec® Pullover and Men’s Midweight Polartec® Pants provide added warmth for extended time outdoors and feature a clean design that make them suitable for after the drift. The Fleece Pullover and Pants are constructed from a polyester and wool blend Polartec Power Dry fabric that features moisture management properties. The fleece top has elbow patches for durability and a snap front shawl collar for easy adjustments as you fish. The fleece pants have an elastic waistband for comfort, and zippered security pockets providing a safe place for essentials. MSRP: Pullover $148 / Pant $138
