Last things first, in the world of professional foul weather gear Grundens is top dog among commercial fishermen, worldwide. If you head out on a long range charter you’ll see deckhands and skippers wearing their bibs and jackets, it’s professional grade gear made to hold up to heavy daily use. For private boaters, those seeking more than something adequate for a brief bit of rain or one-use-and-done sort of disposable stuff, Grundens’ offers long term economy through higher quality production materials geared to the fishing professional. Grundens makes a wide range of foul weather gear, and we can order things not shown on our site. We stock their Clipper series, which is the most commonly used among the LR crews here on the West Coast. The Clipper product line is made for heavy to medium use. If you need foul weather gear, this is the right level of protection for most anglers who are serious about their sport – all year ’round.
