North Wales Kayak Fishing

The first thing you notice with the Palm Sidewinder Combi Bib is the quality

Of the material and workmanship of the product.

 This is a superb piece of kit that is made from xp150. 3 layer breathable fabric .

All the seams and zips are glued and taped so no water gets in because they are breathable material you don’t get soaked in sweat either while wearing them .

 

The built in waterproof socks keep your feet dry when launching the kayak and retrieving so the cold feet problem is also solved I wear a pair of normal sports socks underneath the built in socks and a pair of sandals on the outside to protect against any sharp objects when launching on the shingle

The material is very supple so does not hinder movement at all while out fishing and paddling and getting out of them is very easy .

The waist band has Velcro adjusters each side so when they are on you can tighten them up for the perfect fit and maximum comfort.

 

I have headed many people say that they don’t like anything on their neck like the seals on a drysuit  the advantage of the bib and braces is it has no neck so  you don’t get this problem  yet you get most of the benefits of the dry suit .

After a long days fishing I usually just stand in the sea up to my knees and with  a small sponge rub off any fish dirt then once home a quick shower with the hosepipe and a shake dry and away they go ready for next time .

When I bought these they were £179.00 and at the time I thought it was a lot to spend out on a bib and brace but now I have used them for 5/6 months it was money very well spent in fact for the quality of the garment it was cheep .
