FishComm LTD an international fishing industry consultancy company with business in 16 countries and is owned by ex commercial fisherman and avid sea angler Cormac Burke.
A regular aboard My Way, Cormac knows the requirements to fish at sea in all weather. Recently, he launched an exciting new venture to FishComm Ltd, their own brand clothing division. Their first range of gear is named Brizo, after the Norse God.
Both items have received great reviews from field-testing on a commercial fishing boat and also by an angler for the past nine months with excellent feedback. I recently received both a Bib & Brace and Jacket from Cormac as he went over to his native Ireland for a fishing expo.
Oilskins have long been the traditional wear of commercial anglers, with various manufactures offering a wide range of one piece and two-piece suits. So this had to stand out from the crowd. Designed by Cormac, the clothing range is made from PE by PROS EXTREME in Poland, one of the world’s biggest manufacturer of waterproof clothing for the marine commercial and leisure industry
With many hardshell jackets that are 100% waterproof, you are often susceptible to becoming clammy as sweat moisture fails to evaporate within the jacket. The FishComm jacket, as well as offering the luxury of full oil skin dryness is a fully breathable jacket with, an additional breathable welded breathing skirt across the shoulders.
The jacket is closed with both a zip and pop rivet flap that closes securely over the zip area. With a good sized hood and fleeced collar, the jacket has a cotton lining & elasticated cloth wrists that are seemed a couple inches up the wrist area, again to save on water / rain ingress. Two outer pockets, protected by a loose flap and inside pocket for storage of small items.
The jackets are fully lined with brush cotton – allowing for this gear to be machine washed, but allowed to dry hung up and not in a tumble dryer as the heat might compromise the integrity of the waterproof material.
The bib & brace made from the same waterproof material and feature elasticated bottoms to seal over your footwear and strong elasticated braces, incorporating push close plastic fittings.
Both the Jacket and bib & brace come with a small square section of spare material and glue for the small fixes often required when the unfortunate amongst get hooks for example caught and hole our waterproofs.
Impressively FishComm Ltd, offer1 year guarantee on general wear and tear, Cormac obviously has a lot of faith in these items. With extra strong welded seams, and reinforced knee and chest patches, it seems that faith is well placed.
Sizes from small to XXXL
The suggested retail price for the Brizo jacket with bib & brace is £150
