Product Review: Bass Knuckles Clothing
It’s 2013 and I’m a dedicated angler at age 35. People my age saw the birth of MTV and hip-hop. We wore van’s shoes and took skate boarding from a crime to the public park. We are a generation that saw pay phones turn into cell phones and beepers turn into ipads. I even remember my first computer had no hard drive! We are now the future, we are now the creators of our passion. That passion is fishing, and even further down that progression is swimbait culture. Some people from my generation created empires in the skateboard industry like Tony Hawk, others adapted that to the snow like Shawn White. The one thing in common with these industries is that they have a variety of choices for apparel that fits the culture.
Bass Knuckles is one of the companies that is fitting our fishing passion to our industry’s culture. Apparel that lets people know, whether on the water, or in the streets, we are the fishing culture of 2013. Bass Knuckles was founded in 2011 by anglers from the coast of Palos Verdes, CA who wondered one day why they were still wearing surfing clothing when fishing was such a passion to so many. They have partnered with designers from the surfing industry and other industries to create apparel that provides quality on the water, and style off the water…”Off the water clothing for an inshore lifestyle”
Jacob Allen sent me a box of clothing including a hooded sweatshirt, T-shirts, hats and decals from Bass Knuckles. If you’ve seen my videos, you’ll know that I get pretty excited while fishing and a little fist pumping comes out of me when fish are in the boat! The logo and style of the brand fits. The “hoodie” has been a great weight for the Arizona winter temperatures. After a few washes there has been no shrinking or fading. The design fits me great and is functional. When running from spot to spot I can cinch down the hood and keep my hat on my head where it belongs. The design of the Bass Knuckles logo adorns the back with the bass in true largemouth colors. I’ve had quite a few compliments and most importantly, the fish also approve. I received short and long sleeve T’s. The sizes fit me well and the designs are innovative with a small tab with the logo on the bottom of the shirts for that extra touch. My favorite seems to be the red short sleeve with the logo in white. Black shirt with the white logo will also become a staple of my “inshore” gear. For the hat selection I have really been liking the black trucker hat. Here in Arizona it can get a little warm even in the winter. Without proper ventilation and with so much swimbait information to analyze, the human head can overheat and explode. The vented rear will surely keep this from happening. Also in my hat rack is the flexi-fit, fitted cap with a nice logo in gold accent for a touch of class. Snap back hats are making a come back and Bass Knuckles is on top of it with the USA stars logo hat, with a crisp bill.
