Great Jacket -
By: Rickzzzz from Gilbert, Arizona
I just purchased this jacket for a trip to Montana. So far, I have fly fished from my kayak and waded for 3 days. It rained and the wind blew hard off and on all the time. This jack took it all. Very comfortable. I'm 5' 11" about 215 pounds. The large fits perfect. Room enough for layers. Again Orvis made the grade.

A great jacket for all weather on the river. Loads cheaper than some alternatives but looks and performs just as well. Really happy with it, just wish I could fish as well as I now look!

I was looking for a rain jacket for fly fishing, and here it is! It has big front pockets for all my stuff, and a cell phone pocket on the inside. Heavy duty enough to withstand a down poor, yet light enough to fish all day. Awesome.

I bought this as an anniversary gift for my husband. He goes fishing in AK every year, plus we live near the Big Hole River in Montana so we are always fishing there as well. This jacket will be PERFECT for him! He loved it!
An worthwhile addition -

I used the jacket in thirty degree wet weather. It provide a warm water resistant extra layer. The pockets were used for flies, gloves, and other fly fishing items. I am looking forward to using the jacket in the spring and summer.
Blizzard Proof -

Lucky for me this jacket arrived the morning I was departing for my annual January FF trip to the San Juan River in NM. Southwest CO & Northern NM are known for big snow and driving blizzards this time of year. But, also many nice sunny days. I like to float the river and I wore my new Orvis Clearwater Jacket the first day out. I immediately noticed the snug fitting cuffs around my wrists. I was glad for them because if the fishing is good you are reaching into icy water several times a day and it is quite jarring to have ice water running inside your jacket sleeve. The morning started out sunny and cold with no wind..but as expected that didn't last long. A dense dark cloud bank soon moved up river and the snow started to fly as the wind blasted the river basin. I put the hood up on my Orvis CW jacket, zipped the collar and began to row - down river ! The high collar on the CW is nice but a little fleece lining would make it great. Thankfully the hood pulls were easy to cinch with cold hands. I soon lost sight of the river bank due to the severity of the storm as it attempted to blow me back up river. I rowed for two hours down river through the blizzard to my camp below. The Orvis CW jacket never failed me and kept me absolutely dry and comfortable despite the extream conditions. I would recommend this jacket.

I believe my title explains how I feel about this jacket. It's roomy enough to add layers underneath as and when required. The fleece lined pockets are perfectly positioned and the pockets have enough room for spare fly boxes etc. I love how the hood can be adjusted to fit nicely over your head and not get in the way on a windy day. Great product Orvis.

Excellent, breathable jacket that hit the perfect price point. Extraordinarily waterproof and cut roomy enough to layer appropriately in the most challenging of conditions. This jacket is a winner on and off the water.
Super wading jacket -
By: retiredtroutbum from Arkansas
Warm, comfy, and waterproof. Perfect. Only 4 stars because I'm not a bellows pocket fan, but... I do like the fleece pocket lining and that they're up high. I'm a woman, this jacket is unisex. Does fine. I ordered a small based on size chart but sent it back for extra small. Extra small fits perfect. Im on the water 300+ days a year, need serious gear. This and the women's silver sonic waders fit my requirements perfectly. I like the value. I got the waders and jacket both for about what I'd pay for a new pair of goretex waders from simms. Had 3 pair of their waders and a jacket. All leaked and wore out in abouta year on the waders. Still have their goretex jacket. I'm excited to see how Orvis product lasts but already can say fits great, watertight, and looks good.
