Test Urus pants & Xera jacket Geoff Anderson

The Urus pants from Geoff Anderson became, from day one, my first choice when fishing from the bank. The dungaree shaped pants is for me the pants i wear from late September until April (Dutch climate). With temperatures around 8 degrees Celsius and under, I use the Urus in combination with thermo underwear.

Besides a good all-round fishing/outdoor pants – the devil is in the detail – I really like the security lock for your keys in both pockets!

I thoroughly tested the Urus 4 (still for sale) but the people at Geoff Anderson keep innovating. There is a Urus 5 and even a 6 available. Salt water proof and first and only fishing pants that are 100% fluor free (Without harmful microscopic particles PFCs).

I use the Xera 4 jacket for almost 6 months now. Took it with me to Norway, Sweden and Denmark. In all kinds of weather. Making a long story short: The Xera4 is doing what it is supposed to do: keeping you dry. Together with its low weight and actually good looks, the Xera 4 is a great companion. One thing I really got to appreciate was the back-side pocket. It is huge and exactly on the right spot. Very nice if you hold your rod in one hand and need to grab something from your jacket with the other. Nice!
