VASS waders already had a lot of fans out there in big fish circles, but as technology moves on, their popular Vass-Tex 305-5 design were upgraded.

Incorporating the tried-and-tested Vass Boots, in studded and non-studded formats, these waders are designed using a very tough, breathable material that’s also said to be up to three times more waterproof than some of their competitors’ designs.

The waders were initially developed for extreme sea fishing, but have caught the eye of discerning big-fish anglers looking for a reliable, quality product that’ll last.

These 2017 upgrades include bonded seams, which are now even stronger than the original ultrawide, trip-non-stitch-seal seams, along with Cordura reinforced knees.

Other features include a zipped front pocket and further zipped, fold-out pocket on the inside. The comfortable, wide braces come with quick-release buckles. You will also find an adjustable waist belt and an internal draw-cord in the upper chest area.

Available in UK sizes 6-13, these are nice waders for river as well as stillwater use.
