Designed to be wind-proof and waterproof with fully taped seams, the Huk Tournament Bib and Jacket pair is fully adjustable to create the perfect fit and has plenty of pocket storage, including one for pliers.
The Huk Grand Banks warm-weather bibs cut the wind and repel saltwater spray for long rides offshore.
The lightweight and packable Columbia PFG Terminal Tackle suit is perfect for spring trips and is easily stashed onboard for when rainstorms roll through. Pants come with removable and adjustable suspenders, an elastic waist, and Columbia’s Omni-Tech waterproof, breathable material. The jacket comes with adjustable cuffs and hood, and packs away into its own pocket.
The latest iteration of the Simms ProDry jacket is built with a brand-new breathable fabric package that’s more waterproof, durable, and utilizes two of the most performance-driven fabrics in the Gore-Tex portfolio. In the areas of the jacket that take the most abuse such as the hood, the shoulders, and the top of the arms, a slightly heavier denier Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric is used, while in all the other areas of the jacket, a lighter Pro Shell is incorporated for better range of motion, fit, and comfort. To completely seal water out, the new Pro Dry Jacket comes equipped with Simms’ most watertight cuff.
The Simms Pro Dry Bib is built with rugged 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric and its durability is bolstered by highly abrasion-resistant nylon overlays in high wear zones like the knees and the bottom of the cuffs.
Designed to keep anglers dry and comfortable thanks to its well-ventilated, stormproof features, the Bimini Bay Outfitters Boca Grande Jacket features an adjustable drawcord hood to seal out moisture in the wind and rain, a storm flap over the zipper, and a mesh lining and vented back to keep the jacket breathable. It is available in four colors in both men’s and women’s sizes small through 2XL. The performance bib is weatherproof and lightweight—fitted with range of motion in mind—and the adjustable suspenders and articulated knees allow for more free-range motion and flexibility when aboard any vessel. BloodGuard repels blood and fishy debris to keep the bibs looking clean trip after trip. Pliers and tools can be stashed in the flapped cargo pocket for easy access, and the 100% nylon ripstop construction makes the garment resistant to tears, wear, and punctures. It is available in gray in men’s sizes small through 3XL.
Aftco’s Barricade Elite foul-weather suit is built to keep anglers warm and dry through the nastiest storms of the season with its 30K waterproof rating, while the 7K breathable system vents excess moisture and body heat. The jacket is equipped with double dry cuffs and YKK AquaGuard chest zippers to keep water from sneaking into sleeves and pockets while casting.

The bibs feature adjustable suspenders, adjustable drawstring waist, and a magnet flap on the main zipper.
The SeaKnit Lace-Up is Grundens’ take on a classic sneaker. A shock-absorbing EVA midsole and all-day-comfort footbed combined with razor siping in the natural gum rubber outsole makes a comfortable, grippy sneaker great for boat, dock, restaurant, and home.
The Huk Rogue Wave boot has a full neoprene and rubber upper construction to provide durability and comfort. The GripX Wet Traction non-marking outsole helps an angler maneuver safely around the boat, while molded footbeds keep feet happy throughout a long day on the water.
In creating the Deck Boss Ankle Boot, Grundens prioritized a thicker insole to promote both noticeable shock resistance and an anti-odor cooling liner. Built-in razor siping helps move water out from under the shoe, improving grip on wet surfaces that, combined with a natural gum rubber outsole, gives the traction needed to maneuver around the cockpit. It is available in men’s and women’s sizes and styles.
From dock duties to running laps around the deck, the Simms Challenger 7-inch Deck Boot provides confident traction, protection from the elements, and grid-fleece lined warmth on a rugged, non-marking platform. Constructed with a vulcanized rubber outer, the Challenger comes equipped with overlays in high abrasion zones for increased durability.
The on- and off-the-water Columbia PFG Bonehead Shoe is made from lightweight materials while providing high traction. A quick-drying, water-repelling, stain-resistant upper makes the Bonehead Shoe excellent warm-weather footwear for days that begin on the boat and end at the bar.
The breathable, 50 UPF sun-protection material in the Huk Icon X Hoodie spreads moisture over a larger surface area, creating a rapid drying effect that cools the body after it comes in contact with perspiration. The synthetic fibers allow air to pass through the shirt and contain a hydrophobic coating that transports sweat to drier areas away from the skin.
The fabric of the Solarflex Guide Cooling Hoody is cool to the touch thanks to a technology that’s incorporated into the individual fibers before the ultra-light knit fabric is woven. This process allows the cooling technology to last for the entire life of the garment.
Columbia has added Omni-Freeze Zero cooling technology to one of their most popular fishing shirts. With the Omni-Shield Blood ‘N Guts stain and water repellency and the Omni-Shade 50 UPF sun protection, the Columbia Men’s Blood ‘N Guts Zero technical fishing shirt keeps anglers cool, dry, and protected from UV rays.

A zippered back pocket is included for securing easy-access tools and accessories, while the plier pocket keeps your most valuable tool within arm’s reach.
Sidereal Pants are part of the Grundens Net-Sourced collection, with a goal of recycling fishing nets into useful apparel. Created from Econyl recycled fabrics, they are designed for warm-weather anglers who need pants tailored for athletic movement that also have quick-dry and wicking properties. They are available in both men’s and women’s styles.
Like schoolie stripers, young anglers are eager and excited to hit the water and perhaps a bit impatient. They’ll stay warm in the OTW Youth Schoolie Hoodie while showcasing their favorite fish.

The frames are housed with heavy-duty, two-way stainless-steel hinges to provide long-lasting strength and durability, and the no-slip Megol rubber nose pieces remain comfortable all day.
For eyewear that combines style and comfort with function, the Fin-Nor Surf Candy Sunglasses are the pinnacle of practical eyewear for boaters, anglers, and beachgoers alike.
