Rapala Reflection WadersIt's been a while since we saw a bold innovation like this in wader design. The Rapala Reflection Waders from Rapala's Eco Wear range took top honours in the Apparel category at this years EFTTEX, in Amsterdam.

The innovation is two-pronged.

There's a big tick in the box for the Eco warriors amongst us. Rapala worked with DuPont's Cerenol technology - a first in waders - to create a highly waterproof and breathable wader using sustainable material derived from agriculture. The result is a product manufactured with 30% less fossil fuel and 35% less greenhouse gas emissions.

If saving the planet doesn't turn you on, there's still a big draw. The material used has reflective qualities that are said to mimic underwater light reflections, blurring angler outline and creating the perfect camouflage in certain light conditions.

We haven't seen Rapala's Reflection Waders yet but the idea sounds interesting. We're definitely going to be keeping an eye out for these at this season's up and coming tackle shows.
