Suits You Sir! Just because you are fishing doesn’t mean you have to look like a tramp. ACF editorial assistant Pete McKenna looks at the Chub Vantage All-Weather Suit.

Fishing suits should first of all be functional but that doesn’t mean that they can’t also look good. The new Vantage All-Weather suit from Chub fits this bill very nicely indeed.

This is very affordable clothing that has been designed without compromising performance or style. Using the latest Climatex and Thermatex technology, the suit ensures that anglers will stay warm and dry.

It comprises a jacket, bib-�?n’-brace-style trousers and a fleece that zips into the jacket when required.

The jacket and trousers are both extremely waterproof and, most importantly, breathable so that you don’t overheat and get all sweaty, which then makes you cold when you stop moving around. The unique laminated fabric makes the suit feel nice and soft to the touch and it is very durable.

Thermatex 500 thermal insulation in the jacket and trousers means you will stay warm in even the worst conditions that the English winter can throw at you.

The jacket has a hood that is insulated and adjustable and plenty of large-capacity pockets, some with zips.

The bib �?n’ brace style really helps keep draughts out, especially when you sit down. They also have zipped ankle openings and a zip fly.

THE VERDICT
If you need a new winter suit then you could do a lot worse than The Chub Vantage All-Weather Suit
