Warm and dry through the winter wonderland.
It is no longer a secret that the textiles of Patagonia have become the secret uniform of the sustainable-thinking and acting fly and spin fishermen. Apart from the strict regulations regarding fair production and the use of recycled materials, it is also the environmental policy position of the US company that makes it so likeable and transparent.
The now post-autumn dirty weather with rain, sleet and low temperatures is the signal for us anglers and fishermen to arrange the layering of our clothing to suit these weather conditions. The extremely light rain jacket “Rainshadow Jacket” is available in a ladies and a men’s version. Three-layered and absolutely waterproof and breathable, this jacket impresses with its sophisticated fit, adjustable cuffs, a perfectly adjustable and rolled up stowable hood that can be adjusted to any head shape and does not restrict visibility even when moving, and an adjustable drawcord hem for wind- and waterproof use on the next adventure. Patagonia’s H2No technology allows rain to drip off elegantly, thanks to largely recycled materials and all zips and pockets are also waterproof. In addition, the lightweight Econyl shell material does not restrict freedom of movement and the jacket can be packed into a small, easily stowed package (397g) in the left breast pocket. If you want to wear the rain jacket over a warming jacket, such as the Nano Puff or similar, simply choose one size larger!
When it gets really crisp and cold and only huchen anglers and other freaks are out on the and especially in the water, the question of a warm leg section and also the insulation of the pelvic area and everything that is stored there arises. Pelvic inflammation is annoying and not a nice souvenir of a winter fishing trip. The Patagonia Nano Puff Pants represent the absolute non plus ultra for me in terms of comfort and warmth. I wear them myself on the couch when I want to be cuddly and would even bring my VHS tapes back to the video store with them if they were still available. The Nano Puff Pants are simply worn under waders or rain trousers and protect against cold and wet. They are also ideal for winter fishing from a belly boat or even bank fishing! The pants are light and have a small pack size. They are reinforced at the back and have a non-slip character so that the trousers always fit well and do not slide when moving. Two pockets offer storage space and the buttoned waistband and fly allow you to quickly urinate when there is a squeeze.
All insulating materials are made from recycled raw materials, produced with low emissions and are permanently water-repellent. For all those who want to be active outdoors in autumn and winter, an unrestricted recommendation in terms of heat balance – also when hiking and other activities. So if you are still undecided about what you want for Christmas or even what to give away, these two Patagonia seasonal products are certainly always the right choice! You can find more information about the two products on the manufacturer’s website. (fst)
