Battledress for the Boat

MUSKEGON, Mich. – If fishing were a branch of the military, the hoodie would be standard issue battledress. It’s cornerstone to the look and field performance for everyday anglers and competitive professionals alike. And being so foundational to angling apparel, subpar hoodie’s need not apply.

Whitewater Fishing advances the design, construction, and performance of the hoodie to new heights with the new Buoy™ HD Fishing Hoodie.

It begins with the Buoy™ HD Fishing Hoodie’s substantial heft and feel that exudes warmth and durability via its comfortable, heavy-duty cotton-poly blend. This perfect mixture of materials yields the comfort and warmth of cotton with the shape-keeping fit of poly. And, unlike the average hoodie that slurps up water, the Buoy HD Fishing Hoodie is DWR (Durable Water Repellant) treated to repel moisture.

External features are headlined by a zip closure kangaroo pouch – keep open for quick hand warming and zip shut to securely store your keys, wallet, or smartphone. Rib knit construction at the cuffs and waist yields a secure fit while preventing drafts and heat loss. And reflective tape at the front and back of the shoulders promotes angler visibility in foggy, low-light, and nighttime conditions. Lastly, an adjustable hood shock cord locks to customize fit, with or without a hat.

Fishing has a new uniform. Its name is Buoy HD Fishing Hoodie by Whitewater Fishing.
