Vass is a bespoke textile company, manufacturing and distributing high quality workwear and rainwear to stockists up and down the country. With over 40 years worth of experience in performance textiles, and with a wide range of boots, waders, and other clothing items in its catalogue, it is the brand that will keep you dry by the bank.
Based in Milton Keynes, the textiles are produced on site in a purpose built workshop. This ensures that all its products are made to the high standard of British manufacture that customers have come to expect from Vass branded goods.
The waterproof range from Vass is growing year on year, and in the last decade the company has greatly expanded its range of waders. This range now includes steel top capped waders to offer greater protection in uncertain waters, and studded soles to provide complete grip on even the slipperiest surfaces. The range of products now goes from the heaviest duty reinforced waders on the market to entry level waders that don’t compromise on quality. The incredible durability and effectiveness of its good means that this is a brand that is popular across the fishing disciplines – in particular the brand is popular in the carp fishing community, as well as amongst fly anglers up and down the country.
The waterproof jackets and smocks range from lightweight, breathable fabrics which are perfect from a drizzling English summer day, to heavy duty garments that can withstand high pressure water and consistently wet environments. The garments come in a variety of sizes to suit every wearer.
The best-selling Heavy Duty Breathable Chest Waders can cope in even the harshest sea fishing environments, yet remain breathable. Using only the most technical textile technology ensures that these waders are three times more waterproof than any other waterproof wader on the market, and triple bonded technical stitching means that the product has incredible durability, making it great value for money.
The range of Lightweight Waterproof and Breathable Smocks demonstrates Vass’s capability on the other end of the spectrum. The smock is completely metal free, so it comes with a corrosion free guarantee. It comes without a winter lining, so the product is very versatile, and can be layered with other clothes to provide full winter protection, or on its own over a t-shirt in warm, wet, weather. Despite the lighter wear of this smock, Vass hasn’t sacrificed quality and employs quad welding on the seams.
The Vass Studded Winter Boot demonstrates some of the ways the brand thinks ahead of the game when it comes to boot production and practicality. Not only does this boot feature a studded sole for added grip, but also a ladder grip for extra reinforcement over rock ridges and debris. It has a wider calf and foot fitting than a summer boot to accommodate chunkier socks and still allow the foot to fit comfortably. It also features a deep heel kick, which gives extra grip on the heel making it incredibly easy to remove when wet.
The Vass Waders and Rainwear Facebook page features testimonials from anglers who love their Vass gear. It includes stories of nights spent sea fishing, staying warm and dry thanks to its heavy duty gear, and days by the bank when waders have been integral to keeping a catch. It also shows images of many anglers stood chest deep in water, looking comfortable and dry thanks to their Vass waders.
