Fish Monkey Free Style Custom Fit Glove

and Face Guard now sport autumnal Marsh pattern

Destin, FL (September 3, 2019) – Anglers hunt and hunters fish. It’s in our nature. But the physical demands of tackling both of these hands-on pursuits extend to the challenges of nature itself: skin-baking sun rays one day and bone-jarring wind-chills the next.

Fish Monkey, the emerging leader in advanced hand and face protection for outdoor enthusiasts, offers two exceptional pieces of all-season apparel. The Fish Monkey Free Style Custom Fit Glove and premium Face Guard provide ample protection and performance-enhancement to encompass all outdoor venues, from bass boat to deer stand and beyond.

New for Fall 2019, Fish Monkey’s Marsh pattern is set to arrive in stores in both the Free Style Glove and the Face Guard in September.

“The Free Style Glove is perfect for those cooler fall and winter days on the water,” says professional angler Timmy Horton. “The Free Style fits and conforms to your hand as well as an NFL wide receiver glove, and even offers a tacky silicone print in the palm and four fingers. But the thumb lacks this material so you can effortlessly cast and thumb a baitcast spool with no loss in sensitivity. It’s this level of angler-centric thinking and design that separates Fish Monkey from all the other gloves available today. But that’s far from the gloves’ only high-level advantage.”

Crafted with precise cut-lines on the thumb and first three fingers, each pair of Free Style Gloves can be modified to expose the digits of your choice—or leave them covered— as well as to choose the exact length of each appendage. Simply cut each finger at or above the cut line. And to eliminate fraying or splitting at the seams, each glove finger is reinforced and double-stitched.

Designed by Fish Monkey president and avid outdoorsman Tim Mossberg, the UPF 50+ Free Style Glove serves the individualistic requirements of anglers and bow hunters. In addition to total hand protection against the sun and the elements, special wiring pads on the thumb, index finger and outer pinky finger protect against line cuts and combat with big, tough fish.

Mossberg also notes that while the glove allows for complete customization, its “second-skin-like,” compression fit means many folks opt to wear them as is. “We even added features like a touchscreen-compatible index fingertip,” he says.

Equally important in hot sun or cool winds, Fish Monkey Face Guards are precisely tailored to conform to facial and neck contours without binding. In addition to UPF 50+ sun protection, the Face Guard’s comfortable, feather-weight construction is accentuated by a breathable fabric and “sunglass fog” resistant mouth pattern. New Marsh pattern guarantees you’ll blend in to your surroundings while stalking your favorite quarry afield.

“Our specialized Marsh pattern serves all those anglers who love to hunt, and vice versa,” notes Mossberg. “Outdoors folks who wear our Free Style Glove and Face Guard on the water can now benefit from the same fit, performance and protection while out in the field.”

To beat back the most punishing winter elements, the Yeti glove and mitten employ advanced water- and wind-proof fabrics. “The outer liner uses HIPORA 100-percent waterproof technology—essentially a three-layer membrane that prevents water from entering the glove while letting unwanted moisture out,” explains Mossberg. “This is the ultimate outer glove shell for the ice- and cold-weather angler.”

Finishing touches like a premium goat-leather palm deliver increased comfort and durability. The tough, pliable, slightly tacky palm augments your grip on fishing rods and auger-, ATV- and snowmobile-handles. The material is also easy on fish.

For optimal comfort and maximum finger dexterity, glove and mitten fingers feature pre-curvature to empower everyday fishing tasks. Adjustable wrist and cuff straps lock out the cold. Three other ice-angler-centric goodies include a well-placed goggle squeegee, thumb nose wipe material and touchscreen-compatible fingertip.

For total dexterity and hand protection, fully customizable Free Style Gloves feature a comfortable, fit and UPF 50+ sun protection. High-performance Free Style Gloves utilize Fish Monkey’s lightweight, breathable, fast-drying 4-way Stretch Fabric. Available in sizes Medium to 2XL, the Fish Monkey Free Style Glove (MSRP: $35.95) is available in stores now; new Marsh pattern arrives on September 15.

Fish Monkey’s new Face Guard defends your entire façade, keeping you comfortable and fully protected from the elements. Available at outdoor retailers everywhere, the Fish Monkey Performance Face Guard (MSRP $22.95) flaunts sixteen radical colors, individualized to put your best face forward. Marsh pattern available September 15.

The Fish Monkey Story

No one is sure where the Fish Monkey first appeared. Some said it was in the mountainous jungles of Guatemala near the old Mayan ruins at Tikal, or at the foot of the volcano they call Fuego. Others said it was on the beaches of Isla Mujeres, Mexico’s famed Isle of Women. Still others reported seeing the mysterious creature in other places around the world: Hawaii, Australia, Costa Rica.

But all the reports had one thing in common: wherever there was good fishing, the Fish Monkey was there as well. It was reported to have a phenomenal grip, stronger and more secure than any human could ever have. No matter how slick or slimy, the Fish Monkey could handle the situation with ease.

With those legends in mind, the founders of Fish Monkey Performance Gloves set about to replicate that world-famous grip. Fish Monkey is the world’s premier manufacturer of gloves designed specifically for the water.

Extremely durable, with padding in just the right places, and a fit like a second skin. Protection from sharp teeth and the sun. And all with that legendary Fish Monkey grip.
