    Encounter Wading Jacket - 4/8/2014

    Great jacket for teh money. Polartec in the collar is a nice addition. Also like the separation of the hood when fully zipped up (it does not get in teh way if the hood is not up) Jacket needs side pockets.

    Encounter Wading Jacket - 2/4/2014
    By: from Johannesburg, South Africa

    Best light weight waterproof jacket I ever had. It never rains in Africa but it poars down!!! With all our thunderstorms down here in South Africa, this jacket keeps me dry and comfy to fish that extra 2 "wet" hours in the rain. Packs perfectly in my vest and fits like a glove Excelent YKK zips and adjustment cords are very well made and designed. Collar very comfy. This is a true value for money waterproof light weight jacket that "breathes" perfectly. For the serious fly fisherman!!!

    Great Buy! - 1/18/2014

    For the money, this is a great fitting jacket. It is made as well as more expensive jackets from other manufactures and has the good name of Orvis to back it up!

    Lightest shell ever seen - 1/16/2014

    Very light and can be easily packed. Really thin fabric, ideal for shell clothing. Certainly best 'value for money' proposition to date.

    Perfect - 1/7/2014
    By: from Atlanta GA

    The jacket is worth every penny. The features are exactly what I needed and the quality is excellent. A comfortable adjusted wrist closure and originally thought the large size would be too big, but the adjustable strings to tighten around my hips and hood make a perfect fit. Highly recommend.

    Great outer layer - 1/4/2014
    By: from Massachusetts

    I'm tall with long arms and the jacket fits me perfect (XL). The hood also feels comfortable over the head & neck. It lacks side exterior pockets... The jacket is light and great for any wet condition.
