| STRYKR Jacket and a big Tobin Lake walleye!|
For years I have been searching for raingear that would
actually keep me dry. As editor of Hooked Magazine, I have to research new
product that I can tell our readership about. I also like to test things out so
when I checked the ICAST Awards for this year, I saw that a company I had never
heard about won the award for the Best Technical Apparel: Stormr Fusion Bib
experienced exponential growth in the fishing markets over the past two years,
owing to its comfort level, impenetrability and feature-rich design. While the
original jackets and bibs have quickly found a devoted following among thousands
of anglers, the company been inundated with requests for products which harness
that same quality, but for use in warmer weather. In response to those
requests, STORMR announced the introduction of the Fusion Series Rain-gear.
Since I fish in a lot of cold weather conditions I also ordered the original,
most weather resistant gear they have.
The STRYKR Jacket is designed to withstand the harshest
weather and working environments. It utilizes abrasion-resistant material in
high contact areas, along with a fleece lining and PU welded splash proof
pockets. The wrists, waist and hood are all adjustable, and internal neoprene
cuffs and the form-fitting design make this jacket provide maximum comfort
without inhibiting mobility at all. A water-repellent exterior shell, 3M
reflective graphics and nearly five pounds of positive buoyancy make this
jacket the first choice in foul weather gear for all hard core outdoorsmen who
don’t sit by the fire when the nastiest elements prevail.
I had an opportunity to see just how good this gear on my
trip to Tobin Lake this fall. I wore it as a base layer under my floater jacket
and it proved very comfortable. It kept the warmth in but there was no sweat
build up. This product does breathe and with the fleece lining it is warm.
I must warn you though, it takes a little getting used to
because of the Neoprene outside shell but this is what makes the product so
good. While not inexpensive, this would make any hard core angler or hunter a
great Christmas gift.

STORMR® products use Neoprene Core Technology™ and Fusion
VAPR Technology to adapt the benefits generations of divers and surfers have
used to defy the elements to land-based and amphibious activities. If you hunt,
fish in freshwater or salt, or participate in any outdoor activity that
requires superior mobility in harsh environments, no other gear will allow you
to remain as flexible in tough conditions as STORMR’s outerwear. Each element
of this complete lineup of foul-weather gear provides maximum comfort and
maneuverability, as well as huge thermal benefits in a thin, soft, flexible,
windproof and waterproof shell. There’s nothing else like them on the market
