Block Island, RI – December 1st, 2006  Old Harbor Outfitters announces a new concept in sport fishing apparel with their release of the North Rip Jacket.  The new jacket will start their 2007 series of foul weather gear aimed at the recreational angler that desires state of the art, high tech performance features. The OHO development team has combined a water proof, breathable, light weight fleece on the jacket top with the durability and performance of a new blend of Tricot / Poly material on the bottom. The jacket features waterproof zippers and a patented safety knife pocket to ensure the anglers safety while in pursuit of big game. It comes in both ¼ zipper and full zipper versions. The North Rip Jacket is fashioned in yellow and blue colors designed for easy visibility. This jacket clearly defines a new direction in Sport Fishing apparel that is lacking for recreational anglers.
            “Our development team wanted to create a jacket that had the best foul weather performance features on the market and create new safety features that we feel should be standard on sport fishing apparel. The goal was to engineer a jacket that was flexible enough to work the cockpit or cast a line and still incorporate all the best performance features” said partner Chris Benin.   
            At OHO, they pride themselves on creating innovative products for the sport fishing industry. The development team hand selects only the highest quality and most advanced weather resistant and durable fabrics for each application. Their trade mark shark reflects their resolution to evolve our product to a state of perfection.
            All of their products are “fish-on” tested aboard some of today’s most successful sport fishing boats. Every product they introduce is tested by their development team and Pro-staff, which guarantees Old Harbor Outfitters is a name the saltwater angler can depend on.
They have taken the time to think about how people fish and what people need to make their fishing experience better. They create functional designs that incorporate flexible, performance minded solutions to a variety of fishing environments. Their apparel not only looks good but it functions the way it should. Watch for the shark, and look for their full line of innovative apparel and gear for the 2007 season.
