    Great Value - 1/17/2015

    Have purchased this rain jacket in three different sizes for my three grandchildren. It has been very effective on summer Montana rainstorms. It is well made and a good value. As they grow older in age and stabilize in size, I will invest in higher end technical rain gear for them.

    This was a Christmas present for my husband, and he was so pleased. It was true to size and very well made. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for good quality at a reasonable price.

    Solid built - 1/2/2015

    I have not had a chance to try it out in the field yet, but it looks very well manufactured and fits well. Sizining chart that Orvis has is very accurate. Looking forward to testing it out.

    Purchased this for my son who on occasions will travel with me on flyfishing trips. This is the perfect jacket for the few trips that include a rain storm or cooler weather. Basic product but good value for the money.

    Met Reasonably Set Expectations Very Well - 11/26/2014
    By: from Ithaca, NY

    If you're in the market for a simple wading jacket, and don't need all of the bells and whistles that other jackets may have, this is a good option. I was looking for a simple waterproof shell, and this was a relatively inexpensive, solid option. The seams are constructed well, the actual feel of the jacket is sort of soft and supple, but still durable, and the product overall seems to be very quality. It's also just an overall good looking garment aesthetically. The absence of a back net D-ring is a little disappointing, as others mentioned, but I knew that going in. Also don't expect handwarmer pockets, as this jacket only has the breast pocket. The only suggestion I'd have, if feasible to keep the jacket'a cost down at the same time, would be to make the cuffs more waterproof and the cuff straps slightly more snag less when shooting fly line. The jacket fits true to size. I'm a L-XL with most shirts and hoodies, and the L in this jacket was a perfect fit
