The Vass-Tex ‘Light’ Packaway Jacket and Trouser Set comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

GIVEN the vagaries of climate change, this ultra-lightweight jacket and trouser set from Vass will be a boon for braving sudden summer downpours.

Designed to be compact when stowed away, the lightweight set boasts a 4,000 mm water penetration resistance rating, as well as a high breathability rating of 4,000 g.

Taped seams, elasticated waist and cuffs, and a drawstring storm hood all suggest that this set can take the worst weather that a British summer can throw at it. Better still, the material is designed to dry ultra-fast, so it can be packed away and ready for the next time without having to wait.

These come in two colours (Khaki and Titanium Grey), and pack away into a neat, supplied carry bag.

Price: £29.95.
