Turning its youthful, dynamic focus exclusively on the modern coarse and match fishing world and its participants, Matrix is a new brand delivering stylish, practical tackle, equipment, and bankside essentials with an established focus on quality and performance, and their winter suit, featuring a combination of fully insulated jacket and salopettes, is no exception.
When you’re part of a match fishing session, you don’t want to have to leave the water for any reason, and, sometimes, you’ll need to get right into the swim to have the best chance of bringing those fish out of hiding and onto your line. During winter sessions, however, you may feel understandably reluctant to get into potentially ice-cold water, or even to stay out as long as you’d ideally like to. With the Matrix Winter Suit, however, neither of these concerns need be an issue anymore.
Designed from 24hr breathable, 3000gsm nylon on the outer layer, with a 100% polyester lining, and quality thermal insulation, this fishing suit features a 5000mm hydrostatic head, ensuring you’re kept warm and dry without becoming clammy, and that however bad the weather is, you can carry on your fishing session as long as you need to, giving you the best chance of bringing in a new personal best haul.
The jacket features a micro fleece lined removable hood, giving you the option of total warmth when you need it, and unrestricted visibility when the weather’s cold, but dry, while a hook and loop fastening chin baffle, adjustable via bungee cord toggles, provides a complete and effective barrier against even the most biting wind and driving rain. An internal zipped chest pocket keeps your valuables safe and secure, and also offers a handy place to keep rod licences and fishing permits, while the micro-fleece lined collar gives you the warmth and comfort of a scarf, without the unwieldiness, leaving you free to enjoy fishing without distractions. Zipped, micro-fleece lined hand pockets ensure you can keep your fingers warm, and prevent joint stiffening, on the coldest winter days – vital when you need to be able to reel in, and adjust rigs and tackle, quickly. Meanwhile, a two-way zip with full length baffle keeps you completely wrapped up, warm, and shielded from the elements. Hook and loop adjustable cuffs, and a bungee cord-adjustable jacket hem, ensure you can get the closest possible fit from the jacket, guaranteeing a seamless barrier against wind, rain, and all other winter swim conditions. Snug neoprene inner cuffs ensure your wrists remain warm and dry, giving you that all-important total freedom of movement when you need to cast out, reel in, or grab your landing net in a hurry, while complete thermal insulation ensures all-round warmth and comfort.
The salopetttes feature elasticated shoulder straps, with quick-release buckles so you can quickly and easily get into and out of the suit, and elasticated waist panels for optimal comfort and ease of movement on the bank and in the water.
Like the jacket, the salopettes include zipped hand pockets and thermal insulation, with pleated knees, boot zips, and hook and loop adjustable ankle straps for the best possible fit and feel while fishing.
On the match-fishing circuit, where time spent in the water really counts, increasing your chances of a catch, and adding to your running total, bringing you ever closer to a new personal best match record, you need to ensure that, no matter what the weather, you’ll be out there for as long as it takes. Being fully involved in all aspects of modern angling, Matrix completely get that, which is why this winter suit is designed for complete comfort, durability, and protection, so bad weather need never again mean a bad match.
