Grunden’s Gore-tex foul-weather gear

When getting wet is out of the question, Grundens Gore-Tex is the answer. Guaranteed.

Grundens’ reputation is legendary for keeping fishermen warm, dry and safe while facing the harshest forces of nature. Teaming up with Gore-Tex, Grunden’s has combined functionality and durability with Gore-Tex’s breathable, waterproof technology. The new line consists of the flagship Buoy X and the workhorse Downrigger (jackets and bibs), and the packable Charter jacket.

The Buoy X features an ultra-rugged outer shell with exceptional water beading and a three-layer Gore-Tex laminate. The liner is bonded, and neoprene inner cuffs keep water out of the sleeves. The jacket has two zippered pockets and a kill-switch anchor. The bibs have Grundens suspenders, dual cargo and hand-warmer pockets, zip to the knee legs and a removable belt.

The Downrigger shares the same rugged and water-beading face fabric as the Buoy X and is paired with a two-layer Gore-Tex laminate. It has the comfort of a next-to-skin inner liner. A single chest pocket, hook and loop cuff closures and a hood that defeats wind and rain without flopping while running in the boat. The bibs have hand warmer pockets and lower leg zippers for easy on and off.

The Charter jacket provides grab and go packability and features Gore-Tex Paclite Plus for improved interior next-to-skin feel. There is no reason to ever be without a high quality rain jacket. The face fabric is highly resistant to abrasions and tear comfort.

Available at B&B Tackle in Belle Chasse.
