Charleston, SC (April 26, 2022) – Huk, the nation’s leading performance fishing brand, is celebrated and embraced far beyond the water’s edge. The iconic fishing brand has a wide-reaching appeal that resonates with the NASCAR fan base. Huk has recently enhanced its relationship with Richard Childress Racing and team driver Austin Dillon. Dillon will race the No. 3 Huk Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the NASCAR Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway on Sunday, May 8.
Recently, Dillon took a short pitstop from his busy schedule and shared with the Huk team some of his passions when he is away from the track. Dillon is an avid outdoor enthusiast. When he gets the chance to do something on the water, he must make that time count. Dillon depends on quality gear that keeps him comfortable and protected, no matter the condition. Huk’s extensive stylish and performance-driven apparel line quickly became his first choice. “I love how each product is thoughtfully engineered and designed to excel with features such as superior breathability, sun protection, cooling fibers, and quick-drying fabrics,” Dillon commented. “I enjoy a very active lifestyle and one thing I enjoy about Huk is that the clothing is very versatile. It works whether I’m on the water, at the golf course, or casually spending time outdoors with my family and friends.”
Austin wears Huk clothing during his outdoor adventures and is pleased to share his personal picks. “Huk is a great brand, and I’ve enjoyed representing them and look forward to our continued relationship,” said Austin. “Huk’s passions for the outdoors align with mine, and I know NASCAR fans will enjoy the fun styles and designs that Huk is launching in the 2022 season.” Following are some of Austins’ favorite picks.
Icon X Polo
The Huk Icon X Polo is built for the ultimate comfort, fit and feel both on and off the water. The Icon X polo transitions from the river to streetwear without changing. Hydrophobic fibers transport water and sweat away from the skin to the exterior of the clothing, where it can evaporate more efficiently. The lightweight, breathable, quick-drying, moisture-wicking 50+ UPF-rated material allows for all-day comfort on and off the water pursuits. Featuring Huk’s laser perforated underarms and back for supreme breathability, the fit and function of the Icon X polo will quickly earn anglers’ respect.
The Waypoint pants are perfect for style and comfort. The performance pants are made from 37% recycled polyester, 35% polyester, 20% cotton and 8% spandex and feature a moisture-wicking waistband. This combination provides superior stretch, mobility, and sun protection for a full day of water-filled activities. Ideal for both fresh- and saltwater fishing applications, the pants are quick-drying and stain-resistant. The shorts are constructed with a zippered front fly and zippered back pockets to secure gear and wallets while moving around the boat. A conveniently designed plier pocket helps keep essential equipment close at hand.
Vented Pursuit Hoodie
The Vented Pursuit hoodie has paved the way for being anglers’ staple piece for long days on the water. Anglers rely on the 30+ UPF sun protection technology the Pursuit hoodie offers to block them from harmful UVA and UVB rays. If anglers look for added sun protection, they will appreciate the Pursuit hoodie’s full head and neck protection. The hood is “Samurai” style which is taller around the neck, allowing for extra protection from the sun. The Vented Pursuit hoodie features 90% polyester and 10% spandex designed to fit all sizes comfortably.
