If you’re looking to extend the fall run well into the winter – and we trust you are – you might want to take a look at Huk’s new Icon X Superior Jacket and Bib. The Icon X Superior Jacket is loaded with angler-friendly features, including 10 total pockets strategically placed so there’s a place for terminal tackle, cellphone, and whatever else you need to keep close at hand.
Made from durable, 100% polyester construction which ensures the top is both windproof and waterproof, Huk’s outerwear also incorporates a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish to help repel water. Abrasion-resistant wear areas should help keep this jacket in your foul weather arsenal for quite some time.
With two-piece hood, the Huk Icon X Superior Jacket also features internal cuff gussets on the sleeves for advanced protection against the nasties, while a breathable design makes your day of casting more comfortable. The “body-mapped” insulation will keep you warm on the tautog or cod grounds, with fleece-lined hand warmer pockets to keep fingers toasty.
The Icon X Superior Bib features the same windproof and waterproof construction as the jacket. Ever-Adjust suspenders allow for total mobility, while fleece-lined hand warmer pockets offer hands another safe refuge from the cold. A waterproof relief zipper and chest zip provide an excellent barrier to external moisture, while leg zips make for easy on/off in ever-changing weather conditions.
What’s truly unique about Huk’s new Icon X Superior Jacket and Bib is Huk’s new Float Technology. Float Technology inserts are located at the seat and knee regions of the bib, as well as along the chest and back of the jacket. The inserts are easily removable yet comfortable and are barely noticed when worn. Sure, accidents happen; but it appears that Huk has your back if you do end up in the drink.
Huk’s new Icon X Superior Jacket retails for $300, while the Icon X Superior Bib comes in at $290. Add $10 for the XXXL size for each. Keep an eye out for The Fisherman’s video product spotlight coming Monday, November 22, and learn more at hukgear.com.
