Clint Elliott reviews the latest Halkon-Hunt GORE-TEX waterproof
pole jacket and bib and brace combination…

Halkon Hunt JacketWhen it comes to fishing in the rain as far as I am concerned there is only one material that is waterproof yet lightweight, breathable and comfortable to wear and that is Gore-Tex! It’s expensive but then it is the best.

Halkon – Hunt supply White Acres fishery staff with waterproofs and they are really handy when weighing in, a task that will leave the unprepared well and truly soaked!

We have just taken delivery of the latest short pole jacket with bib and brace. The jacket is shorter than the traditional three- quarters jacket and is designed for comfort and efficiency.

Halkon Hunt Jacket 1It boasts an elasticated hem, two zipped pockets, a zipped inside pocket and the front zip is covered by a Velcro fastening twin placket.

Halkon Hunt Jacket 2Reinforced shoulder panels and new style Velcro fastening cuffs feature and it is fleece lined with an adjustable hood which can be used with or without a cap. Made in three layers the Bib and Brace has been upgraded with a reinforced seat panel designed to avoid seams coming into contact when sitting on poles – that could cause premature wear.

Made to measure, colour schemes, design service, printing and embroidery all available for the personal touch..

Halkon Hunt Jacket 3All seams are taped with Gore-seam tape. The Jacket comes with a Fleece lined hood to keep you warm and dry on winter mornings!

High quality Velcro fastening for unbeatable warmth and dryness whatever the weather.

Elasticated adjustable braces, two zipped bellowed top pockets, a two-way zip with storm placket and reinforced leg panels create a superb garment. The overall length has been increased to afford extra protection of the upper body. Another innovation is that the leg closures now have waterproof vees with a Velcro leg fastening enabling the garment to be worn even with walking boots!

“If you want to stay dry then this is the gear for you.”
