Design Reasons

We need features that are not available with other jackets

So designed them to bring functional compatibility

We need high waterproof performance

20k Hydrostatic head as a minimum requirement

We need highly breathable capabilities

For when we are on the move or chasing the big one down stream

We wanted an exclusive quiet fabric

Lotic®3L Developed to move away from the noise of other shells

We wanted an exclusive fabric with a quality hand feel

Lotic®3L Developed to move away from the crunch other shells

We need ease of movement

Lotic®3L Developed with stretch for full range casting movement

We wanted and needed hidden storage

Every tool, shooting head, line, leader or tippet we “may” need while fishing should have a place. We just don’t think it should be on the outside of a jacket. Therefore, we have created unique concealed storage solutions to promote both a clean exterior and to make locating tools and materials easy when we do actually need them. Importantly we also avoid annoying line snagging, which always happens when tools hang on the outside of a jacket. The essentials are still with you “if” needed, they are just securely stored out of harms way.

We need storage for decent sized fly boxes

Without restrictive pulling across the jacket chest area

We need a zipped pull out fleece hand warmer pocket

The few premium jackets that actually have hand warmer pockets usually adhere a thin soft fabric to one face of the back pocket lining. We find that after deep wading the pocket can stay wet for a long time thus compromising its desired function. Our formed micro fleece pocket covers the full hand and pulls out to ensure quick drying.

We needed a high collar that tightens in for full protection

Higher collar protection eradicating wind chill to the face and stopping uncomfortable collar draft when cinched in. Fleece lined for comfort.

We need to vent

We do this by means of the two way zip and hem popper system so the jacket can be fully vented in warm and windy conditions, or on the move, thus avoiding a flapping jacket when fully unzipped.

We need a hood that can be zipped away when required

We found it gets rather tedious when you hood flaps around your face like a flag all day with no option to stow.

We wanted clean aesthetics with a streamlined but comfortable fit

Looking modern and moving away from big boxy oversized jackets

We want a thin neoprene inner cuff lining

So we can tighten very securely and speed up drying time when wet

We do not want to snag our line anywhere on our jacket

Hence housing the press hem adjustment internally and designing the anti curl cuff tab, in addition to our internal tool and line storage solutions.

LOTIC®3L

Our proprietary performance three layer shell developed by Driology in conjunction with leading Japanese waterproof membrane and lamination scientists and fabric mills.

We researched and developed the Lotic®3L fabric to deliberately move away from the crunchy and noisy fabrics associated with waterproof shells. The nylon face fabric delivers a hand feel, comfort and quiet stealth like no other wading jacket. Our highly windproof, waterproof (20k HH) hydrophilic membrane also achieves incredible breathability (26k MP) providing both protection and performance. The hard wearing 100% Nylon face has a two way stretch construction that promotes fully unrestricted movement when in action.
