The ESP brand was launched in 1999 and has been enjoyed by an avid following from early days. Prior to the ESP brand name launched, the company had a number of different names that were kicked around, but it was actually an off the cuff remark from Terry Hearn, a long time consultant for the brand, which inspired the final name. The initials literally stand for Extra Sensory Perception – or ‘sixth sense’. ESP specializes in carp fishing and is best known for its feeder fishing innovations, but the range includes everything a carp angler's heart desires from catapults to clothing.
The ESP clothing range all adopts the muted colours expected for carp anglings, from maroon to olive green. There clothing keeps you hidden whilst offering a refreshing take on carp fashion attire.
The ESP camo hoody, offers the classical camouflage pattern, allowing you to mask your presence when near the bank. This makes the jumper perfect for carp fishing as they tend to be easily spooled by bright clothing and gear.
The ESP jacket is made from a heavyweight 60/40 poly cotton material, this poly/cotton blend allows for the hoody to be breathable, durable and hypoallergenic. The ratio of polyester makes the jacket more insulated and resistant to the sprinkles of water you may come across when splashing a fish back into the lake or from the drizzles of rain of the British climate.
The heavyweight to the hoody comes from the amount of insulation the blend of fabric offers. This is great for those cooler sessions at the more open waters or for a layer in the winter season. In addition to the warmth, the main part of the hoody provides your torso, your hands can also be kept warm with the two hands warmer pockets on the exterior of the jacket. Cold hands make tying lines and fiddling with hooks that much harder so in between tasks you can rest your hands in the comfort of the warm pockets ESP provides.
The hood to this jumper is also great for insulation thanks to its double layers. This makes the hood a lot more roomy so if you are wearing a hat or head torch, the hood can simply slip over these accessories and then be tightened by the pull cords around the neck. This will prevent the wind from blowing the hood back down again.
Unlike other jumpers, this hoody can be zipped fully using the chunky YKK full-length zip. This makes removing of the jacket easier, with one quick zip rather than struggling to yank off a hood over the top of your head. The hoody also comes in sizes a range of available sizes including medium, large, XL and XXL, providing you with the choice of what best tailors to your measurements.
For a roomy, classic camo hoody that is going to keep you comfortable and warm, look no further than ESP.
