RidgeMonkey | APEarel Dropback Clothing

RRP: From £9.99 | www.ridgemonkey.co.uk


This month sees RidgeMonkey unveil an entire line of clothing, namely the APEarel Dropback range. It comprises a waterproof jacket and trousers, hoodies, jogging bottoms, cargo pants, shorts, T and polo shirts, as well as a trucker cap. The waterproof suit is only available in green, whereas the other items are also available in grey, while the trucker caps also have a brown option.

RidgeMonkey’s aim was to launch a range of high quality clothing, made from technical materials, that was not only comfortable and durable for fishing, but was also suitable for wearing when you were out and about at home. As a result you will find discreet branding, except maybe on the caps, attached to lightweight garments that are designed to keep you sheltered from all but the very worst weather.

The jacket and trousers are wind and water resistant, made from a rip-stop material featuring a carbon 6 hydrophobic coating. The hoody, joggers and shorts are made from a stretchy, air layer composite fabric. The cargo pants also have a waterproof outer, the shirts are pre-shrunk and anti-pill treated, whilst the adjustable caps will cater for any head between 50-62cm in diameter.
