Essential Fleeces

Fleeces have become an essential piece of clothing for many fishermen, I wear them all the time. In differing thicknesses, worn under a waterproof shell or on their own as an outer layer, they are a very useful garment.

Vision Thermal Pro Jacket

Vision Thermal Pro JacketShaped and developed from the same one-way stretch as the Thermal Pro overall. A basic, but well-shaped design for a comfortable fit and a warm,
soft feel.




Snowbee Fleece Jacket or Pullover

Snowbee Soft-Shell Fleece JacketWe all know that the most effective way of keeping warm is using the ‘layering system’, whereby thin ‘layers’ are built up, trapping a layer of air between each garment. However, this is not always possible with a thick fleece, which is simply too bulky for comfort. Our new range of Fleece Jackets and Pullovers are therefore constructed in a soft,
Snowbee Soft-Shell Fleece Pullover240g polyester fleece which is warm enough to wear as an outer layer on chilly days, but thin enough to use as a mid layer on cold days.
The jacket has a full length front zip with two side pockets and a vertical chest pocket, while the pullover has a ¼ zip neck and 2 side pockets. As versatile as a sweater and offering sensational value for money, these garments are sure to become a favourite in your wardrobe.

Snowbee Fleece Pullover – Sage Green

Snowbee 1/4 Zip Fleece PulloverSnowbee’s high density 360g polyester fleece pullover it has a ¼ neck zip, 2 side seam pockets plus an elasticated draw cord and

Snowbee ‘Breeze-Bloc’ Technical Fleece – Sage Green

Snowbee Breeze Block Fleece JacketA truly ‘technical’ fleece offering outstanding warmth and ‘Wind-stop’ qualities. No fleece can be 100% ‘windproof’ and ‘waterproof’, due to the stitched seams, but this is as close as it gets. Over the past two years, they have received numerous testimonials from happy customers, who have been caught out in extreme conditions, yet remained totally warm and dry. This ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight, totally windproof fleece can be worn either as an outer garment, or as a mid layer under any other waterproof and serve to keep you really warm and dry in virtually any conditions.

Top And Bottom Set

All breathable layering systems rely on one simple principle to perform at their best – a good quality base layer designed to wick perspiration quickly away from the skin. The new Snowbee ‘Base-Layer’ Thermal Underwear does just that. Made from a high-tech, double layer knitted fabric, consisting of a permeable polyamide inner layer to wick moisture quickly away from the skin, with a cotton outer layer, which absorbs moisture and allows it to quickly evaporate.



Vision Thermal Pro OverallVision Thermal Pro Overall

Our very popular Thermal Pro overall is the best value mid layer fleece available. Its simple design hides a technical item of clothing with a complicated cut. As standard fleece stretches in only one way, we cut it in pieces to position both vertical and horizontal stretch wherever needed for better fit and function. Instead of using normal straps that have no thermal qualities and are bulky under the waders, we made ours to fit and feel snug while offering the needed stretch. Keeping wading shoes in mind, we made the cuffs high and tight. This will prevent bulky ankles and give maximum comfort. Dark Grey with black seams.
