WHY PURCHASE THE WESTPORT 277 WET WEATHER FISHING JACKET?
The most challenging occupations and activities require you to wear gear that is both extremely strong and durable – and, of course, that doesn’t fail to facilitate your needs and demands. Your gear has to stay operating for as long as you do, keeping you safe, dry, comfortable and offering extreme protection from moisture. This foul weather fishing jacket is a specialised piece of fishing gear, and with its incredible quality and elastic adjustments, finding a jacket that performs its function as effectively as this one is near enough impossible.

If you work in an industry that is physically demanding or requires you to be exposed to abrasives and chemicals, it is completely necessary that you wear specialised clothes. When challenged with the rigours and hardship of your job, ordinary waterproof coats, pants, and overalls with standard fabrics will rip quickly or start leaking water almost immediately.

– Aquaculture workers
– Fish industry worker
– Saltwater fishermen
– Offshore fishermen

WHY CHOOSE FOUL WEATHER GEAR?
Stormline’s huge range of foul weather gear and commercial raincoats is developed and manufactured to the highest standards to withstand the harshest weather conditions. Our expert range of foul weather jackets and gear is fitted with a revolutionary adjustable neoprene cuff that keeps you completely dry while working without hindering your movement and mobility.
Foul weather gear most often consists of a pair of chest-high trousers accompanied by a matching jacket and serves the main purpose of keeping you dry, along with many additional benefits. It does this in part by acting as a weather barrier and by allowing moisture to exit. The micro-pores in modern fabrics achieve this crucial mix of waterproofing and breathability by allowing small molecules of moisture vapour to flow through it while also serving as resistance to large particles of liquid water. Double seal cuffs act as an effective seal system to provide a chafe protection layer.
There are many crucial features of this high-performance foul weather jacket that make it so unique and a standout competitor in the oilskins and fishing gear market.
FABRICS AND MATERIALS
At Stormline, we put great effort into fabric development and strive to use only the best and most durable materials within our products. PVC is a sturdy and robust material that we use to craft our selection of fishing gear and products. The majority of PVC textiles have a flexible plastic coating over a polyester, cotton, or nylon base. It is a very robust fabric that is ideal for hard labour in all types of weather and industries, as well as being entirely waterproof and resistant to a variety of weather types and conditions.
We carry out the most effective fabric construction and fabric saturation to offer cosy protection in all our products, from our affiliate gear to every water-repellent jacket we manufacture. From the effective neck seal and easy-access hand-warmer pockets to the life jacket straps and elasticated adjustment, every element of every product is crafted with only the best materials and drying fabrics to provide essential protection.
