I am an unabashed fan of all things AFTCO. I love their innovative gear, amazing team of employees and pro staff, and their unique conservation ethic. Generally, I have some piece of AFTCO gear on me or near me at all times. So, when I saw the new Ahoy 1/4 zip fleece in Khaki, I was hooked. It is non-fishing-looking enough to wear out to dinner and not look like a fishing geek (which I guess I am), but it is also an amazing underlayer for a cold winter wade. Tuck it into your waders with a rain jacket over it, and you are wind proof….period. I also like that it has a hint of a Jeff Bridges as The Dude look (Check out movie The Big Lebowski), which makes the fleece even cooler. Bottomline….I abide.
