  • NEW FRABILL STOW SERIES

    STOW, STOW, STOW IT IN YOUR BOAT
    NEW FRABILL STOW SERIES GEAR EASILY THE BEST PACKABLE RAINGEAR

    PLANO, IL (July 8, 2015) – Wikipedia defines a raincoat as, “A waterproof or water-resistant coat worn to protect the body from rain. A rain jacket may be combined with a pair of rain pants to make a rain suit.” (My times have changed….citing Wikipedia as an “official” source of information.)

    In fishing, we prefer the term “raingear” – a matched top and bottom. And at the core of raingear performance is this simple little notion of keeping you dry – raindrops outside, happiness inside. Beyond that, differentiators from suit to suit and brand to brand range from multiple layers of space-age fabrics to a precious little viewfinder on the wrist to apparently Snap Chat while you’re fishing.

    The fit, finish and performance of Frabill’s new Stow Series raingear shockingly great in its price-range.

    Frabill says never mind the bullocks. New for 2016, the company that redefined fishing-specific raingear, ushers in the most sensible, peak-performance and light-on-your-wallet raingear to date: the Stow Series.

    As the name implies, it’s stowable. That doesn’t mean cramming a moldy suit back in the clear plastic bag it came in – Frabill saves that torture-treatment for the other guys. Rather, the Stow Series literally packs back into itself. The left-hand pocket of the pants becomes its own storage. Same goes for the left-hand pocket of the jacket. Easy as that.

    So, you know the Stow Series packs like a pro and travels like a champ. But that’s only the icing on the cake…

    New Stow Series jackets available in Coastal Blue, Black and Brown; sizes S – 3XL

    At the root of all Frabill outerwear is fabric selection. Frabill uses the highest-quality and most technologically advanced materials across all of its outerwear models, raingear and winterwear. The Stow Series marries a trio of technologies to create total waterproofness and breathability. The outer shell is constructed of durable Nylon ripstop fabric. Beneath that lies a waterproof and breathable membrane. Sealing the deal is a topical treatment of 3M™ Scotchgard™, providing a powerful first line of defense against moisture. All told, with seams 100% sealed, Stow Series is a veritable safe-house for anglers.

    Features on the jacket abound. Large outer pockets with zipper closures accommodate fistfuls of gear. The main zipper is protected by a pair of storm flaps, the innermost with a rain gutter to stream water droplets away.

    A two-way adjustable, waterproof hood with reinforced brim/sun visor eases your eyes from squinting as well as water dripping off the tip of your nose.

    New Stow Series pants available in Black and Light Brown; sizes S – 3XL

    A-grade accoutrements continue with an adjustable bungee cord at the hem for a precise fit and internal elastic sleeve cuffs to keep comfortably snug at the wrists. A side-seam D-ring is perfectly placed for tethering your corded kill-switch or trolling motor remote. Augmenting safety, the Frabill Stow Series features 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material on the front and back. Last but not least, all Stow Series zippers are branded YKK or SBS, not nameless bargain-bin componentry.

    The Stow Series pants are equally as exceptional. Like last year’s revolutionary F-1 Series Storm Gear release, the Stow Series pants feature removable, full-elastic shoulder straps. So if you prefer the feel of pants over bibs, simply shed the shoulder straps. The pant cuffs are also adjustable with cuff-to-knee, half-length leg zippers for easy in and out.

    Other standout components include Frabill’s signature ergonomic, articulated knees. None of that straight-legged (aka “linear patterning”), starchy feel. The Stow Suit kneels and flexes with you. And like the jacket, the bottoms feature large hand pockets with zipper closures and a handy D-ring.

    Stow Series jackets are available in Coastal Blue, Black and Light Brown. Pants come in universally matched Black and Light Brown.

    Sizes span from S to 3XL. And, the Stow Series is backed by an impressive 2-year warranty.

    Wear it. Stow it. Stay dry. That’s how Frabill fishes.
