Airflo have launched an exciting all-new range of fly fishing clothing for 2019 which we feel are destined to become best sellers. In this blog post we take a closer look at the Airtex Pro garments.
Airflo Airtex Pro clothing
Featuring a wading jacket, ¾ jacket and a bib & brace trousers, this range has been thoroughly tested in the worst of the UK weather over the autumn and winter months.
All Airtex Pro garments are made of a robust 3 layer material that is extremely durable, fully waterpoof and yet still retains a high level of breathability. Pockets and D ring attachments have been cleverly thought out for maximum usefulness.
Airtex Pro Wading jacket
There is no denying that this is an eye catching garment. Like everything in the Airtex Pro range, they have been styled for functionality as well as striking good looks. The jackets are dark grey, with carbon panels.
The material is a 3 layer, of a breathable, fully waterproof material. There is no lining, which is good as there is nothing to absorb or hold excess water when deep wading. What is noticeable is how durable it feels and looks – just like a set of breathable waders. You can tell that any water is going to instantly bead off. In our tests the jackets have proved to be totally reliable.
The hood is well designed so you can fully adjust it with several draw cords and toggles. It can also tuck away neatly inside the collar when not in use, which is Velcro closed.
The wading jacket has 3 D rings – one on the back for a net, and two on the the lower front for wading staffs or other accessories. Cuffs are fully adjustable and keep water out, and all zips are waterproof.
Airtex Pro 3/4 Jacket
With exceptional good looks the Airtex Pro 3/4 jacket stands well above the competition. Again it is a solid 3 layer, with taped and re-enforced seams throughout – guaranteed to keep you dry.
This 3/4 length jacket is perfect for the bank or boat fishing angler with it’s longer cut, which covers the top part of the leg and rear even when sitting down. It has a simplified design, with 2 x exterior chest and 2 x hand warmer pockets. Like all Airtex pro garments, the main zip and the pocket zips are all fully waterproof.
The chest area and adjoining pockets have been streamlined allowing you to wear a life jacket or fully loaded fly fishing vest over the top with ease. The 3/4 jacket has been sized to fit over a mid-layer, such as a warm fleece. Arms are cut to allow easy casting, with storm cuffs providing protection from water ingress.
The hood is another strong point – easily adjustable and designed to fit over a cap, it provides brilliant protection from the rain, even if it is blowing into your face. It doesn’t fold into the collar like the wading jacket, but it does sit neatly in place when not in use, allowing you to concentrate on fishing.
Airtex Pro Bib & Brace Trousers
100% waterproof and made of the same 3 layer breathable taslan shelled material, this great set of bottoms will compliment both of the Airtex Pro jackets.
Perfect for boat and bank fishers, they are designed for unrestricted casting and movement. The main zips, pockets and leg gussets are all designed in such a way to offer full protection from the elements, while being extremely easy to slip on and off.
The elasticated braces are fully and easily adjustable, allowing you to spend the day in complete comfort. These overtrousers also sit high up the body, completely protecting you from wind and the elements at your back when combined with one of the jackets.
Priced at £99.99 per garment (combo price any two for £179.99) the Airflo Airtex Pro fly fishing clothing represents outstanding value for money. Airflo Airtex Pro clothing can be purchased here.
