Vass-Tex 405E ‘lightweight’ Camouflage chest fishing wader

Filtering through stock from August 2022

The new Vass-Tex 405E ‘lightweight’ Camouflage chest wader will supersede the popular Vass-Tex 355E lightweight wader.

What’s changed? Vass have increased the material performance coating thickness to further improve reliability and strength without losing the lightweight and flexible feel. Although a relatively minor update, it shows Vass’s commitment to constantly improving their products.

The Vass-Tex 405E ‘Camouflage’ wader benefits from the usual high quality workmanship and raw materials anglers have come to expect from Vass. The upper part almost 50% lighter than its Camouflage brother the ‘Vass-Tex 785 Heavy-Duty wader’. This wader was developed for anglers who require a lighter and more supple chest wader which is compact when stowed away. It’s lightweight and flexibility is ideal for the warmer months as well as taking abroad on fishing trips due to its compact size when stowed away. Although not as hard wearing as its heavy duty Vass-Tex 785 Camo’ brother, it retains reliability unrivalled by other lightweight chest waders in its class!

"I push net, dig bait and fish in my ‘Vass SuperNova’ waders, they are without doubt the best PVC / Rubber waders on the market, and these are the reasons why. They are totally comfortable, allowing me to bend and kneel with ease, the Double layer on the knees cushion me from the ground as well as add strength, and the waders don’t restrict my movement , speed wins matches , these waders don’t slow me down . The straps adjust easily and are comfortable even over just a thin t-shirt and most important of all they don’t restrict my upper body when casting. The straps are elasticated but unlike some other brands they don’t need constant adjustment, once you set them they stay set .The boot part is tough with a thick sole offering plenty of grip, strength hasn't compromised the comfort on your feet, walking distance in these boots is no problem.

When I’m fishing in my waders I am warm and dry whatever the weather, keeping me alert and allows me to concentrate 100% on fishing the match

"I have to say they are the best waders that I have owned over the many years that I have been fishing.

I always buy quality waders and have owned many pairs of Ocean waders studded and non studded, I noticed over the years that Oceans quality has dipped thinner rubber and the last pair I bought were very snug fitting. However the Vass wader I have worn to death and found them to be the best waders I have ever owned. Hard wearing soles and the extra room in the body for those that are carrying a bit of extra padding is fantastic! The upper chest draw-cord and also the detachable straps, again, is a great idea so you can role the waders down to your waist and secure using the unique Vass braces as a belt with no problems. Additional reinforcement on the knees is also a great idea as with previous wader I have found that I put holes through them when kneeling down.

"For the past six months I have been using the new Vass-Tex ‘SuperNova’ Chest Waders, and I am very impressed, good strong reliable waders. The benefits I have found with these Vass chest waders are the reinforced knee area, Velcro storm flap on the internal pocket (to stop phones, clippers etc from falling out when bending over very important when stood in water) and the studs on the soles of the boots are superb, giving excellent grip on slippery surfaces.

I would recommend these to anyone thinking of purchasing a new set of chest waders.

"Earlier this year following discussions with a former well established company (Vass Rainwear & Waders) who were trailing a new style of chest wader. I was really pleased to be sent a pair of studded chest waders to put through the daily rigours of hard competitive match and pleasure angling.

The knee areas on the front have been ‘reinforced’, this is a brilliant improvement as over the years this has been an area, given the varying grounds, that anglers face in the UK the strain on the knee area of other waders caused damage. I can now confirm that the modification has much improved the product given the user plenty of confidence when kneeling down and scrimmaging around the rocks when collecting bait.

The internal pocket has also been improved especially when faced with severe conditions it allows you confidence to know your keys/Mobile will stay dry no matter what weather is thrown at you.

Finally and most importantly the boot has been improved that to me is the most important part of the regeneration of these fine Chest Waders coupled with studs they are brilliant, well done Vass
