From Orvis:

The ultimate wet-wade boot and made to cover miles, our popular PRO Approach Shoe morphs into a salt-perfect hiker specifically designed for the rigors of the marine theatre. The PRO Approach Hiker for saltwater offers generous ankle support required to explore endless flats, jetties, and mangrove muck quickly and safely. It’s built with an Intuition®-based foam footbed that molds around your foot for a custom fit unlike any other wet-wading shoe ever designed. Featuring the same exclusive Michelin® outsole as our PRO Wading boots, these saltwater hikers feature superior wet and dry traction in the boat, and on rocks and notoriously slick docks with a massive bonus: The teal outsole won’t scuff and mark up boat decks. PU cast exterior with a scratch rubber toe for next-level abrasion resistance. The built-in, zippered gravel guard with hook-and-loop closures and lace-up interior gives you the best fit possible and makes a separate set of wading socks unnecessary unless you’re battling cooler water temperatures. An EVA midsole with a soft liner protects against hot spots. Easy-grab heel loops on lace cover and liner heel help you suit up and get to the water quickly.

New Women’s PRO Fishing Jackets

From Orvis:

This waterproof PRO Fishing Jacket features a finessed fit made specifically for women and tailored for unrestricted casting and rowing from revolutionary, breathable three-layer stretch CORDURA® fabric. The next-gen fishing jacket stands as a pillar of abrasion- and puncture-resistance made to serve the boat and bank angler for years instead of a mere season. Comfortable and quiet, with a remarkably soft feel, this fabric is simply the best we’ve found from both a comfort and durability perspective. Evidence our design team pushed deep into over-engineered protection from the elements, the PRO Fishing Jacket gives you further weatherproofing features like a YKK AquaGuard® zipper, fully taped seams, a longer cut, and even a redesigned internal cuff, which holds moisture out even when submersed, yet manages to feel more like a soft knit than neoprene. The forward-thinking design of the pocketing can’t be beaten, with two upper-hand pockets, dual chest pockets with rubberized zipper garages for streamlined tool docking, and a zippered internal security pocket. Note the pit zips that work as part of the PRO System, offering easy, unrestricted access to the PRO Bib or Waders without needing to remove the jacket. A three-point storm hood rounds out the design and can be cinched down in high winds or wide-open throttle scenarios, with hidden hardware that keeps cords out of your way when casting. Athletic cut.
