Bamboo Clothing - The Benefits

Bamboo is a versatile natural resource that has been used throughout Asia in various industries. For centuries, people have used bamboo in cooking, construction, transportation, textiles, and medicine. Recent developments in the fashion industry have led to more clothing manufacturers using bamboo as an Eco-friendly alternative to cheap fabrics. Bamboo is sustainable, requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, and is 100% biodegradable. While plastic continues to pollute oceans and landfills, those who switch to bamboo products will help preserve the environment.

Join Hook & Fly and preserve cold-water ecosystems with our environmentally conscious products. As outdoor enthusiasts, we carefully consider which materials we use in our apparel. In order to create the most functional performance apparel, we blend bamboo viscose fibers (70%) with organic cotton fibers (30%). Our long sleeve bamboo shirts make for the perfect warm-weather outdoor wear because the material is more breathable than cotton and will wick away 4x more moisture than most synthetic materials.

Is Bamboo Clothing Warm?

When preparing for a fishing trip, packing for cold weather is crucial. Whether you plan on standing in the river feeling the cool, Autumn breeze or relaxing on the riverbank brushing your knees against the tall grass, wearing form-fitting, functional material that keeps your warm will make your trip unforgettable. The team at Hook & Fly has engineered a bamboo and Merino blend that will keep you warm without ‘bunching’.

Merino wool helps to transfer sweat and moisture away from the body. It can absorb up to 35% of its weight in water vapor and still feel dry to the touch. Outdoorsmen prefer Merino wool for its ability to regulate temperatures while protecting the body from the elements. Merino wool fiber is elastic, flexible, and durable. Shirts made from Merino wool feel soft against the skin and will last for years. Both Merino wool and bamboo are odor resistant because they prevent the growth of odor-producing bacteria. Keep warm with Hook & Fly’s Bamboo/Merino wool mock top or our bamboo stretch fleece. Never has fishing been more comfortable.
