The Best Fishing Hoodies, Jumpers & Fleeces

2021 Review by Jason Sawyer

Not only will you look the part, but these best selling fishing hoodies and jumpers will add layers, keeping you warm outdoors during cold fishing seasons. Tactical fishing fleeces can be windproof, waterproof and thermal lined for added protection against rainfall, wind and snow.

If you’re looking to buy carp fishing hoodies, fleeces or jumpers, from popular fishing clothing brands, like FOX, Jack Pyke and Savage Island, then this is the best place to start. Here I’ve put together a buyers guide, with everything you need to be kitted out like a pro!

When I go fishing for carp I like to take a camouflaged fishing hoodie with me so that I can blend into nature. Choosing a tactical fishing jumper or fleece with large zip side and chest pockets will be useful for storing bait and tackle. Keep reading below for my top picks:

    Actually, this tactical fishing fleece just doesn’t stop producing pockets. You’ll find two large pockets on the front, a large zip pocket on the back, on the pocket on the left forearm and one pocket on the left/right bicep with velcro loops. The bicep pockets have small holes inside so that you can run headphones.

    The windproof fleece is tight to wear due to the thermal lining inside. I, therefore, recommend getting the next size up. So if you’re a medium then make sure you buy a large size for best fit.

    Key Features:

    • Waterproof
    • Windproof
    • Warm thermal lining
    • Multiple zip pockets

        Frequently Asked Questions

        Here are some answers to frequently asked questions on fishing hoodies and jumpers:

        Are All Fishing Hoodies Waterproof?

        No, not all hoodies are waterproof so if you plan on fishing in the rain I recommend the TACVASEN Hooded Fishing Fleece which is 100%  waterproof and hooded.

        What’s the Best Size Fishing Hoodie?

        Ultimately this will depend on what type of fitting you want. You will need to consider whether you want a tight fit or a loose fit. A loose fit will free up space for more layers such as a fishing jumper. A tight fit may only allow room for a fishing shirt with not too many layers.
