Sage, which is renowned as a builder of some of the world’s finest fly fishing rods and reels over the last 30 years, has introduced its first line of fishing apparel.
The company says that it has been designed to perform in a wide variety of conditions, from fishing the flats in the blazing sun to chasing steelhead in an ice-cold river.
“We’ve designed our technical apparel with premium fabrics, creating an aesthetic that combines form and function for anglers who demand the best,” said Sage Marketing Manager, Eric Gewiss. “Each new piece of clothing features angling specific details, extreme weather protection attributes and advanced construction techniques to provide the highest quality possible.”
Sage’s Quest Collection includes technical garments designed for discerning anglers who travel the globe. The outstanding piece in this collection is said to be the Quest Softshell Insulated Hoody.
Sage says that the jacket is unique to the fly fishing world with Primaloft® insulation mapped throughout the main body for core warmth with no insulation in the arms for unrestricted movement.
The high performance 4-way stretch, double weave exterior fabric combines nylon with DWR coating for water and wind resistance. The adjustable cuff with low profile closure, adjustable waist and hood and pre-shaped sleeves add technical features that anglers will appreciate, adds the company.
The Quest Softshell Hoody is available in Canyon and Black for a retail price of $250.
Other pieces in the Quest Collection includes the Ultra-Light Rain Shell, which uses Sage’s new GeoShell™ membrane to ensure that anglers stay dry and comfortable on even the wettest days.
It is easy to pack and weighs just over 10oz. Sage says the 3-layer breathable jacket is the lightest on the fly fishing market. It comes in two-tone Deep Green and retails at $200.
