Canadian company brings bibs to a new market
What does it mean when a manufacturer says its foul-weather gear is incredibly durable ? For Climate Technical Gear it means you can attack the fabric used for a coat or bib pants with an electric palm powder sander with course grit , a power drill with a steel wire wheel , an electric drill with a brass wire brush , then ending up , with an oyster knife , and it won´t be a problem .
You can watch that taking place on a video shown on Climate Technical Gear´s website .Then water is poured over the layers of fabric to indicate all that abuse has not caused any tears in the material .It´s why Clinton Desveaux , global sales manager for Climate Technical Gear has no problem saying :” the product is incredibly tough .If you are hauling wire traps or are getting stuff with barnacles on it , it doesn´t rip or tear .”
Climate Technical Gear is a Canadian company based in Dartmouth,Nova Scotia.It ´s been in business for over 30 years but only in the last fiver years has is turned its attention to manufacturing and marketing marine foul weather gear under the name Sevæn.In that time , just one item has been returned , due to what Desveaux says ” a defect in the manufacturing process .”
Climate Technical Gear started marketing the Sevæn brand to fishermen in the United States this past January , with most of the effort in the North-east , from Maine to New Jersey .
The top of the Sevæn line is the Industrial Deluxe Jacket and Industrial Basic Bib Pant , which feature a tip-stop 420D nylon outer shell with polyurethane-coated polyster knit waterproof fabric .
On the jacket are neoprene cuffs and a detachable lime colored hood , which makes you visible when working on deck or if you end up in the water .The inside lining is waterproof , and there´s an inside snapped storm flap .The buckles on this bib pants are good to minus 30 degrees Celsius .
Both the jacket and bib pants are made up of layers .”That creates an air pocket that runs up and down the jacket and bib that keeps you cool ,” says Desveaux .”If you don´t have that air pocket you start to sweat like crazy .”
“Customizing for big guys is available ” , says Desveaux , “and we also do women cuts .”The jacket is priced at $235.99 and the bib pants are $142.99 .
