Rapala Eco Wear Reflection Waders have been honored with the Best New Apparel Award and Sufix Synergy Carp named the Best New Monofilament Line at the 2011 European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition (EFTTEX), Europe's largest and most important international fishing tackle trade show, held in Amsterdam on June 17-19.
Rapala Eco Wear Reflection Waders
Rapala Eco Wear Reflection Waders feature a new design protected pattern that mimics natural underwater light reflections, thus acting as an aquatic camouflage and helping the wearer to blend into the subsurface environment.
Rapala Eco Wear Reflection waders are also the first waders in the trade manufactured with a unique, ecological process from DuPont(TM) that significantly reduces their environmental footprint and the dependence on petroleum. DuPont(TM) Cerenol® Polyol technology is based on DuPont's proprietary family of polyether polyols that are manufactured in a sustainable process using an ingredient derived from agricultural feedstock.
DuPont Cerenol technology is applied as a part of the Eco Wear Reflection Waders' manufacturing process where the fabric is given its outstanding waterproof and breathable qualities with 30% smaller fossil energy use and 35% smaller greenhouse gas emissions.
