Hodgman® cut its teeth on developing gear that keeps anglers fishing, even in the elements. Coming this fall, are a few new Hodgman Aesis™ Jackets that build a barrier against inclement weather and keep focus where it should be – on the fish.
Constructed of the highest quality, Hodgman Aesis jackets possess intuitive features that benefit anglers at every turn of the creek. The Aesis jackets for fall or winter use include the Aesis 3-in-1 Shell Jacket, Aesis HyperDry™ Down Jacket and Aesis Soft Shell.
Whether outfitted in the Aesis HyperDry down jacket or the Aesis 3-in-1 jacket, anglers notice the dryness and versatility of each fit.
For anglers battling a wide variety of conditions, the Aesis 3-in-1 Shell Jacket is the all-around answer. The two-layer VTecH™ construction doesn’t allow water to enter and the fully taped seams guard against unwanted moisture. The removable inner jacket is a Thinsulate™ insulation piece designed to be worn inside waders while the outer waterproof/ windproof shell is meant to be worn on the outside of the waders. This systems-based jacket inspires confidence to go beyond the limits of conventional outerwear.
For years goose down jackets have been sought after by mountaineering experts due to the lightweight insulating properties and avoided by anglers due to the lack of warmth in moist environments. Hodgman merged the best of both worlds to solve this problem by using Allied® HyperDry pure goose down, which utilizes nanotechnology to successfully repel water, increase loft and speed drying time.
The HyperDry Down jacket is the first down jacket designed specifically for anglers, especially those looking to push limits of cold-weather performance. A convenient belt catch loop keeps the jacket in place while putting on waders, a feature common to many styles in the Aesis jackets. HyperDry stays dry longer and dries quicker than other down systems, all while maintaining a higher loft and fill power for greater warmth retention, even in extreme situations.
Equipped with a high-water hand warmer, the Aesis Soft Shell Jacket is lighter and designed for milder days on the river. This waterproof/windproof jacket is fleece lined with a soft outer shell, giving anglers a comfortable option when heading out to the stream.
Wherever anglers roam, from the remote reaches from Oregon to New York, Hodgman Aesis fall jackets were constructed to keep anglers warm, dry and on task. The Aesis 3-in-1 Shell Jacket, HyperDry Down Jacket and Soft Shell will be the last piece of equipment to worry about.
The Hodgman Aesis jackets have an MSRP of $119.95 to $299.95.
