Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard is the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week. Here's his lowdown on the Drennan Wind Beater Jacket …


DRENNAN have released this warm waterproof stylish jacket that you would happily wear on or off the bank.

Nicely padded to help keep you warm as well as protected from the elements it also comes with a 5000 mm waterproof and 3000 g breathability rating.

We like the chunky zips, even on the handwarmer and security pockets as well as the front.

It’s a ‘modern’ cut, the neoprene storm cuffs, waist toggles and adjustable hood – you’ll find it fits neatly over a cap – have all been well thought out.

Another quality product from Drennan, it’s available in seven sizes – from Small to 4XL.

Price: £119.
