If you’ve fished or hunted in wet weather, you know how Neoprene excels at keeping you warm and dry. The elastic nature of the fabric eliminates baggy and bulky fabrics and is extremely flexible, whether wading a stream or bursting from a goose blind.
STORMR is a new product that combines Neoprene with high-tech fabrics and shows so much promise for mainstream outdoor use that it won a technical award at the recent ICAST show in Miami. This new gear is a waterfowling dream, and should be an excellent pick for deer and elk hunters as well. Here are the details from the manufacturer.
STORMR brand clothing, introduced to serious outdoorsmen in the Fall of 2012, has quickly become irreplaceable foul weather gear for thousands of sportsmen from coast to coast. Up until now, the company’s rapid spread among anglers, hunters and other enthusiasts has been mostly the result of word-of-mouth, but at the recent ICAST 2014 trade show, STORMR’s Fusion Bib won the coveted “Best Technical Apparel” award and now it’s apparent that the brand’s advantages are obvious and numerous.
“We’ve only been in the industry for a few years, so it’s gratifying to know that our colleagues see us as innovators,” said Brand Manager Nick Lassor. “We look different, we approach design differently and it’s working.”
STORMR’s Fusion Series jackets and bibs utilize VAPR Tech (Variable-stretch Advanced Performance Rain-gear) to create windproof, waterproof, breathable shells that strategically incorporate high-stretch neoprene panels for an increased range of motion and superior comfort – all while remaining extremely lightweight. In a sea of copycats, STORMR stands out as the first and only company to combine high-end neoprene with high-end technical fabrics.
Even before the Fusion gear was officially introduced, pro anglers who must persist no matter what Mother Nature throws at them had adopted STORMR’s foul weather gear as essential equipment. It could be seen on over a dozen competitors at this year’s Bassmaster Classic, and both Bassmaster Elite Series and FLW Tour pros wore it religiously as the country emerged from a prolonged winter. Now, with the lighter Fusion Series available, they’ll be sporting STORMR gear nearly 12 months out of the year, and so will an increasing number of recreational anglers who value comfort, innovation and a fair price.
