Integrated Gear

INTEGRATED GEAR

Talk about smart. Integrated models take the fishing gear you wear anyway – such as high-quality bibs – and integrate life-saving floatation into the chest and suspenders. These models are extremely lightweight and work friendly. They don’t snag on gear, are easy to put on, and they clean up with the spray of a hose. While ranked highly by all participants in our 30-day trial, gillnetters and longliners were particularly pleased with integrated options because there’s nothing for nets, lines and hooks to snag on.
