Fly Fisherman and Light Tackle Spin Fisherman
Fly Fishing and Light Tackle Spin Fishing
A very light weight and easy to pack jacket. Basically, this wading jacket is made up of the same light weight material like the Pro Action jacket. However, it has improvements like a secure hood "not detachable", lots of pockets, and a neoprene cuff to minimize water from seeping in and down your sleeves. The water proof material is light weight but will keep you dry even if you get caught in one of those 50+ mile an hour Alaskan wind and rain storms. It's only vulnerability is it can be easily torn should you go hiking through thick Alaskan brush, Also, the zippers on the pockets can be easily jammed if you open up the pockets in a rush. However, for it's price point and ability to keep you dry even in a full on nasty rain storm, this jacket can't be beat. They say you get what you pay for and in my opinion, you get a lot when you buy this jacket. On my last Alaskan trip, I used this jacket as my back up but ended up using it on the entire trip when my expensive Gortex jacket failed me.
Pros: Waterproof, Light weight
Cons: Zippers jam easily
