Fantastic jacket! Review by bcolvin

This jacket is one of the best pieces of outerwear that I own. The jacket has many features that set it apart from other jackets that I used to fish with. The primary reason I purchased this coat was for the GORE TEX material. I am very impressed by the GORE TEX material as it is very breathable but also blocks wind, rain, and snow. I fish primarily in Wyoming and Colorado where the weather changes rapidly and this GORE Tex fabric is great in all of the conditions I fish. Another plus to having this weather proof outer layer is I can reduce my underneath layering allowing me to be less bulky when fishing which is a huge plus for hiking, casting, and my overall fishing experience. As for the features of the coat that I am impressed with I am really happy with the pockets. The two huge front pockets take the place of a vest or a waist pack now. I can fist most any fly box I would want into the pockets and still have room for spare spools, leaders, tippets, and my camera. Having your gear inside the jacket compared to outside the jacket on a vest has been a huge plus as I do not have anything to get hung up on when rowing a drift boat or when casting. Another feature I have liked are the cuffs in the sleeves. I have never given these much thought but the sleeve design prevents water from flowing down your arm when your hands are wet. This has been great after releasing fish on a cold day. I have am really pleased with the performance of this jacket and look forward to many upcoming seasons with it. I review fishing gear for GORE and can tell you this jacket is worth the cost.
