Charleston, SC – Huk Performance Fishing is excited to announce the launch of KVD Signature Apparel, a new line of performance clothing inspired by the world's leading professional bass angler – and all-time money winner – Kevin VanDam.
KVD's performance on the water, coupled with his ability to win, creates an ideal partnership with Huk Performance Fishing.
"Kevin VanDam is a very successful angler and one of the main aspects of his success is his commitment to details," said Ben Verner, President of Huk. "With such a mind for details, we are excited to be partnering with him to provide high-quality fishing apparel that is inspired by the pros but can be enjoyed by all anglers."
The KVD Signature Apparel will initially include gear options such as warm sweatshirts, long sleeve performance shirts, hats, comfortable cooling t-shirts and classic performance polo shirts.
