ICAST 2013 Coverage


STORMR Offers Serious Foul Weather Gear

 

Date: 7/23/13
Location: Las Vegas, NV
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: STORMR
Reviewer: Zander








Introduction:
Have your heard of STORMR? If not you will soon. This company is bursting onto the bass scene with new foul weather gear that makes use of neoprene core technology. Neoprene has long been used in waders, wetsuits and even rescue gear and STORMR has found a way to use this material with a special lamination process enabling the company to create thinner warmer garments that still exhibit all the benefits of neoprene including a water repellant finish, positive buoyancy and excellent wind resistance.

 

New of this season from STORMR is the Surf Top

STORMR products all look very technical and remind me of tactical gear with their clean lines and yet the apparel looks like a proper armor from the elements. The jackets looked a little bulky to me at first but the minute you put one on the weight isn’t an issue and the material stretches easily allowing for free range of motion. The jackets are lined with micro-fleece so they trap the heat between your body and the shell, making them excellent for fishing in cooler conditions.

The Surf Top has internal neoprene cuffs to keep anglers in the surf dry

New for this ICAST is the STORMR Surf Top, a neoprene semi-dry top that is designed to be extremely comfortable pullover. This windproof garment is designed to be high stretch allowing for long extended motions and the two way adjustable waistband provides a tight seal as does the neoprene cuffs.

One of the benefits of the Neoprene based Swell Hoody? Extreme stretch and flexibility for free range of motion

There is an adjustable neck gasket and durable hood to shield anglers from the spray as well. The new Surf Top looks like a great option for hardcore surf anglers looking to brave the waves and this new garment will retail for $249.95 when it is released in October.


Completing the gear are new STORMR Cast Gloves

For anglers that want a really hard-core hoody able to take on the worst weather STORMR is introducing the new Swell hoody. This hoody has a complete neoprene outer layer and it virtually holds no water whatsoever so it is both wind and waterproof. Designed with a relaxed cut the micro fleece lining keeps anglers comfortable while the outer layer protects from spray, rain and high winds. The STORMR Swell looks like an armored hoody and will retail for $179.95 and will also become available in the October timeframe.

These gloves has Kevlar index finger and thumb tips

To complete the outfit STORMR will also be releasing new gloves including the “Cast” which are neoprene gloves with Kevlar. These gloves are 3mm thick providing plenty of protection and the Kevlar index finger and thumb provide additional dexterity with protection.


Plenty of grip with this glove

 

These gloves are great for use with braided superline and the palms are lined with high grip surfaces which provide plenty of tack even when wet. I tried the gloves on and found them to be easy to move in, and it seems feasible that you could fish with a baitcaster with these anatomically fitted gloves. The Cast gloves will retail for $39.95 and will be released in October.

 

STORMR jackets are as stylish as they are hard-core. This premium foul weather gear offers something unique with the neoprene core design

Premium foul weather gear is all the rage now and anglers are looking for more comfortable and reliable options to help them stay out and fish longer. STORMR joins the likes of SIMMS and Gill in the bass foul weather gear market and offers something unique with their neoprene gear. Loaded with plenty of features and unique designs we expect to learn more about STORMR and see just how their Neoprene based garments perform in real world conditions.
