Tacky Flydrophobic SD Waterproof Fly Box.
The Flydrophobic SD is literally the first of it's kind.
IT'S WATERPROOF, AND IT BREATHES. That's right, it breathes. Not only does it keep water and moisture out, but it also vents and allows moisture that's inside the box to escape. If you put a wet fly in your box the venting system will dry out your fly.
Waterproof with Benefits
The eVent fabric used in the Flydrophobic SD fly box is truly amazing! The molded trout skin pattern not only looks amazing, but it plays a crucial role in the venting system, allowing the space for moisture to escape. The inside of the lid is covered with an eVent fabric which is waterproof but breathable. This allows moisture to pass through the fabric from the inside out but does not allow any moisture to pass from outside in. The image below will give you an idea of how this fabric is both waterproof and breathable. The eVent fabric combined with the gorgeous trout skin pattern lid combine to make the very first ever waterproof and breathable fly box. It's waterproof with benefits.
The rate of evaporation is also demonstrated in the chart below. You can see a typical sealed box (every other waterproof fly box), compared to our Flydrophobic SD. The difference is obviously incredible. You can also then see the rate of evaporation of the Flydrophobic compared to a completely open box. The difference between those two is not all that much and is quite impressive!
One thing that's been consistent about our boxes from day one has been our latchless closure systems. We all know that latches are often the first thing to break on a box, which is why we've never used them. Our neodymium magnetic closures securely hold our boxes shut without a latch. When it comes to a waterproof fly box, not using a latch has never been attempted. It was something that had never been done... until now.
The Flydrophobic SD is the first ever fly box with a waterproof tight seal and no latch. As you close the box you can feel how the latchless closure system in action. The silicone gasket is molded in a way that it creates a tight seal between the base of the box and the lid. You feel the seal between the two pieces happening, keeping all moisture out, while keeping the box securely closed.
As you can imagine, we're very excited about the Flydrophobic SD Fly box. We can't wait to get it in your hands and on your shelves. It was awarded Best in Show in the Fly Box/Storage Category at IFTD we're confident it's going to become a staple in packs of avid fly fishermen everywhere.
