    Wading jackets to end all wading jackets - 9/16/2014

    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 - 8/26/2014

    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.

    1 major issue - 6/28/2014

    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 - 5/20/2014

    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.

    Wading Jacket - 5/7/2014
    By: from East Moline IL

    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.

    "in a pinch" - 4/18/2014

    I was headed to the two-day flyfishing at Millbrook, NY. RAIN! for the second day. I needed raingear and purchased the Encounter Wading Jacket (I could not pass on the great price). Almost waist deep in the stream, in torrents of rain. Bottom line, I'm 100% satisfied with the purchase. After the two day course I purchased Silver Sonic waders..........Quality pays.
