Grundens Gore-Tex Gear
September 13, 2019
Grundens has partnered with Gore-Tex to create a new line of rugged fishing and foul-weather gear. The line includes 3 jackets and 2 bibs, all designed with thoughtful fishing features and utilizing Gore-Tex’s proprietary waterproof breathable technology.
The Buoy X Gore-Tex jacket and bib both feature a Gore-Tex three-layer laminate. The 150-denier face fabric is treated with C6 DWR for maximum water-beading performance and avoids “wet-out” that can be created by contamination from oil, blood, or slime. The jacket includes neoprene shingled cuffs in the sleeves, dual zippered storage pockets, and a kill switch anchor. The jacket is available in three colors, in sizes ranging from small to 3XL.
The Buoy X bib features Grundens famous adjustable suspenders, removable belt, and water-diversion system at the front lower closure. Available in two colors, in sizes from small to 3XL.
The Downrigger Gore-Tex jacket and bib are based on Gore-Tex two-layer laminate technology. The garments maintain the same rugged exterior and water beading performance of the Buoy X, but at a more affordable price and with the comfort of a liner. The Downrigger jacket has a single chest pocket, an adjustable hook-and-loop cuff closure and a unique hood that handles wind and rain without flapping. It’s available in three colors, in sizes ranging from small to 3XL The Downrigger Gore-Tex bib has handwarmer pockets and lower leg zippers for easy entry/removal. Available in two colors, in sizes from small to 3XL.
The most portable jacket in the line is the packable Charter Gore-Tex jacket. Featuring Gore-Tex Paclite Plus, which provides an improved interior feel compared to classic Paclite technology, the jacket is extremely breathable, packable, and offers a broad range of motion. Other features include zippered hand-warmer pockets and adjustable hook-and-loop closures on the sleeves. Available in two colors, including refraction camo glacier, the Charter Gore-Tex Jacket is available in sizes from small to 3XL.
