Grundens Gets Stylish with Weather Watch Gear
May 25, 2011
Grundens is best known for the rugged, baggy orange bib overalls worn by commercial fishermen, but now the company has introduced a line of stylish (and affordable) foul-weather apparel aimed at the recreational boater.
Weather Watch is part of the new Gage Technical Gear collection from Grundens, and is designed to provide lightweight, breathable protection from the elements during a wide range of outdoor activities.
Weather Watch garments are constructed from heavy-duty 420-denier nylon (note: Hi-Vis Yellow Weather Watch rainwear is made from 300-denier polyester for dying consistency and color fastness).
The Weather Watch family includes jackets, bibs and pants in a variety of colors and full range of sizes from XS to 5-XL. Weather Watch Hooded Jackets are offered in Forest Green, Navy Blue, Black, Red and Hi-Vis Yellow, featuring drop tail adjustable hems, full-sized adjustable hoods with elastic drawstring closures and 2 large, zippered pockets. The double storm flaps and fully taped seams keep rain, spray and moisture out under extreme conditions.
Weather Watch Bibs come in Black, Red and Hi-Vis Yellow, featuring fully taped seams with adjustable suspenders and leg cuffs for a snug, watertight fit. An inside zippered chest pocket and right leg cargo pocket provide handy storage for things like pliers, keys, wallets and other personal items.
The Weather Watch collection also includes waterproof, breathable pants with a sturdy elastic logo belt, Velcro cinch ankles and leg zippers for easy on/off. Two front zipper pockets and a right leg cargo pocket provide plenty of storage. The pants are offered in Black or Hi-Vis Yellow.
- Weather Watch Hooded Jackets: $53.
- Weather Watch Bibs: $65
- Weather Watch Pants: $51
- (sizes 3-XL to 5-XL are priced slightly higher)
