I really like this jacket, great for my protection: Sun, rain and cold. She is very light and practice to be guarded. Thank you
Wading jackets to end all wading jackets -

Beautifully light... enough room to layer under--no pockets to get caught on. Packable when the time is right. Hood covers it all-- yet is out of the way when you want to show off that back hand move. Who says fish don't care what you wear?
It's just a jacket -
As a jacket it's fine, but without a D-ring for a net that's all it is - a jacket. The word 'wading' just doesn't apply.
Awesome wading jacket -
This is a great Jacket for the money! Easy to store and pack up for trips, very lightweight and durable. Also love the color!
Great jacket -
Lightweight. Packs great. True fit. Great for on the go and all day trips.
1 major issue -
Wore this on the Rapid River in Maine, and it kept me very dry during an all day rain. The one problem is that it is not equipped with a D-ring for a net to be attached. How a jacket marketed as a wading jacket does not have this is perplexing. Sizing is spot on, but it was impossible to fully zip it over my Wasatch vest/pack. 1/2 size fuller cut would probably do it. I'll be keeping the jacket as it is easily packed in a day pack and does keep you dry. I just wish the web description/ photo would have clarified no d-ring attached.
Great Buy -

It's hard to find a light, rugged but affordable rain jacket to fish in and this one fits the bill perfectly. Nice attention to detail for such a simple jacket.

I had reservations about the quality of the material and the zippers before I placed the order for this jacket. I took a chance and ordered it. When I opened the box after it arrived, I was very happy to find the quality exceeded my expectations. The fabric looks to be very durable and the zippers are "welded" to the fabric. The tags used to pull the zippers are very robust and should last a long time. I've not used this jacket yet but will soon. I feel this is a great value for the price.
