This smock was put through its paces on a recent trip to Chew when it rained for six hours solid.
Back at the car at the end of the day I was bone dry! Vass clothing tends to be associated with the sea angling market but this smock doesn’t look out of place for those who cast a fly. It is lightweight (approximately 1lb) and ideal to keep in your bag in case of emergencies. It is titanium grey and charcoal black and comes in sizes six sizes from small (36-38in) to 3XLarge (48-49in). It has a wide collar and press-stud front that can be opened between showers. It has a large hood, which is ideal for those who like to wear a hoodie or cap when fishing because it gives plenty of room to do so. It has a large front pocket with Velcro and funneled storm flap, which is ideal for a large fly box and accessories.
The smock is extended in its body and has an elasticated lower hem that allows for a low, snug fit and the rain to run off. The elasticated cuffs did let rain in when the rod was held vertically – on the hang. The smock dries quickly and is machine washable. This is the ideal waterproof to have in the bottom of your bag for a rainy day!
