High Quality Waterproof Clothing
We’re often asked how our garments compare alongside other brands in the market such as Ocean, Elka, Dunlop or VASS Waders.
The Ollyskins Brand is enjoying a growing reputation for High Quality Waterproof Clothing with a particular emphasis on the PVC Waders we produce for Fishing and Industrial workers.
A little about the fabrics and products
Ollyskins waders are predominantly manufactured using PVC (although we plan to release a Neoprene Wader during 2016). We use a selection of different PVC fabric weights in the waders ranging from 670gms to over 1000gms. Our Entry Level 2780 Chest Wader is our lightest fabric and uses the XT700 670gms fabric which is slightly heavier than the standard VASS Wader at around 600gms and other brands that use down to 500gms.
The heavier fabrics in the Ollyskins collection such as Model 2880 which feature 1000gm (XT1000 range) fabric are more suited to Industrial applications where puncture and tears are more likely to occur.
It’s all in the Detail
Each Ollyskins garment has been redesigned to ensure it is of the highest quality and each aspect including fabric, components, webbing, footwear and even pattern design has been carefully reconsidered to ensure optimal fit and longevity. At Ollyskins, we operate a policy of continuous improvement based on valued feedback from our customers.
All replaceable components are available for purchase separately should any part break or wear out. We even stock fabric swatches and adhesives for any repairs you may need to make should your garment become damaged.
The Verdict – Ocean, Dunlop, Elka, Vass Waders or Ollyskins?
So are Ollyskins garments similar to Ocean, Dunlop, Elka, VASS Waders and others? Perhaps ‘Similar’ but in our view ‘Substantially Different’. Just remember – next time you are looking for a pair of new Waders, give Ollyskins a try.
