A closer look at the fishing apparel & gear brand Fox Chunk, where you can snag some military-inspired streetwear.
Sometimes you have to look in left field for some camo classics. Fox International is the company behind Fox Chunk, but they aren’t exactly associated with street wear. They are a fishing brand.
Every day thousands of people around the world people go fishing armed with Fox International products.
But what does fishing have in common with streetwear?
Not much to be honest. But when they look this good does it really matter?
Carhartt and Dickies both began life as uniform suppliers. Rothco made military uniforms. These brands have evolved to become streetwear staples.
Fox International apparel also has tactical qualities you might not find in a streetwear brand. Fishermen have to deal with pretty extreme exposure to the elements at times.
If these are designed for fishermen, then they are some fly fishermen.
This hoodie from Fox looks better than a lot of hoodies from streetwear brands. Featuring a unique Fox Camo pattern, it is fully lined with a soft, insulating tricot fabric.
Kangaroo front pocket is lined to keep your hands warm while elasticated cuffs will help keep out the elements.
The hood features drawcords with branded metal eyelets reinforcing the quality of this garment.
Crafted from soft-brushed back fabric (80% cotton 20% polyester) and a 100% cotton liner, it would be a shame to use this hoodie just for the fish. Matching joggers are also available.
Soft Shell Camo Hoody
Another classic looking hoodie this time in a shower and wind resistant shell, the camo soft chunk hoodie not only looks good it will keep out the elements.
Fishing gear is often rated for waterproofness using what is called a Hydrostatic Head rating. The camo soft chunk hoodie has an 8000mm hydro static head meaning it is highly waterproof and a breathable so you won’t sweat up a storm.
The hoodie is crafted from 96 per cent polyester and 4 per cent elastane, while the lining is 100 per cent polyester. It features a drawstring hood, elasticated cuffs and waist, a zipped chest pocket, pouch pockets and a full-length front zip.
Olive Quilted Jacket
This quilted lightweight hooded jacket features a special blend of synthetic fibers to give it an insulted and comfortable filling. The outer and lining are made from Nylon, while the padding is polyester.
The PU water-resistant coated outer fabric will keep you dry while zipped hand pockets and an internal pocket can handle a set of keys or a phone.
