Charleston, SC – Huk, the nation’s leading manufacturer of performance fishing gear, has tapped up-and-comer basketball star, Keon Johnson, as their newest brand ambassador. The goal of this unique partnership is to grow awareness of Huk’s outstanding line of outdoor gear as well as make fishing more accessible to a new audience. The partnership is fairly new but Keon’s love for fishing and Huk gear is not.
While most fans know about Keon’s accomplishments on the court, very few have seen what drives him when he’s not in the gym. “Most of my fans know about me from my accomplishments in basketball, but I really want to connect with people and share my love of fishing.” He continued, “I hope they can see how fun it is and want to try it themselves.”
Keon has been wearing Huk clothing for quite a while and is pleased to share his own personal picks. “Some people don’t know you can go fishing and still look good. I love the way Huk fits me and the way their clothes look.” He continued, “It was tough to narrow it down, but here are my three favorite Huk items.”
Huk ICON X Long Sleeve
One of Keon’s favorite shirts, Huk’s ICON X Long Sleeve pullover shirt is great to wear around town as well as out on the water. Keon appreciates how it keeps him cool and dry when the heat cranks up. The shirt features a breathable material consisting of synthetic fibers which allow air to pass through unhindered. These fibers have a hydrophobic coating that transports sweat away from the skin to drier areas and spreads the moisture over a larger surface area to promote rapid drying with a cooling effect.

Huk Pursuit Jacket
Keon doesn’t let a little bad weather keep him from his next big catch. He turns to the Huk Pursuit Jacket to keep him warm and dry when the weather turns south. He also sports it around town on the rare occasion it rains in LA. The jacket is a lightweight 4-season 10k waterproof jacket with a full zipper front, zippered hand warmer pockets, and a zippered chest pocket. The built-in hood, 4-way stretch, and 10k breathable layer add to your comfort — and perhaps best of all, it’s 100% windproof. Check it out here for more info.
Huk Waypoint Pants
Keon loves the way Huk’s Waypoint pants look and feel. They not only look great, but they are some of the most comfortable pants he has worn. The pants are made from recycled plastic bottles, to create Huk’s softest and lightest fabric yet, while keeping plastic out of the waterways. The bottles are cleaned, crushed, melted and stretched into fibers that are woven into yarns. No matter where his next adventure leads him, Keon trusts Huk’s Waypoint Collection to keep him comfortable and protected from the sun while protecting the oceans. The pants are extremely flexible, quick-drying, and built to move with your body. The stain-resistant finish makes it easier to wash out stains from a hard day on the water. The Waypoint pants are great all around, grab and go bottoms for any occasion on or off the water. Check it out here for more info.
