The Story

A minimalist jacket within the Ultralight Wading System that offers solid protection against wind and rain that can be carried in a small daypack or even the Guide Sling Pack. Most wading jackets are heavy and bulky, but this new approach to foul weather protection offers more comfort, freedom, and a significant reduction in bulk. Combined with other components of the Orvis Ultralight Wading System this is an extremely comfortable and streamlined approach to wading and weather. It doesn't have to be heavy to offer great waterproof and windproof protection. Two-way stretch, three-layer shell fabric with 20K Waterproofness / 30K Breathability rating offers the durability you need with the comfort and freedom you desire. Moves with you while keeping you dry and comfortable over a wide range of temperature and activity ranges. Fully-taped seams for added weatherproofing enhances the longevity of the jacket. DWR finish (Durable Water Repellent repels water from fabric surface. YKK AquaGuard® water-resistant zippers are flexible, easy to slide, yet keep the elements out. Two front storage pockets and side zip pockets feature power-mesh pockets for breathability, less bulk, and more pocket room when you need it. Integrated Dolphin Skin Cuff system prevents water from running up the arm when reaching into the water to release fish. Rubberized tabs for tool docking eliminate punctures in fabric when hanging tools, and offer greater security for tools. Internal power-mesh pocket for added storage. Three-way adjustable storm hood with laminated brim. Rear yoke D-ring for net. Nylon with PU lamination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Awesome I've fished with this jacket in all conditions and it's just a finely-tuned piece of gear. Don't think I've ever been as excited about pockets with great zippers. These pockets are placed perfectly and are comfortable when loaded with a fly box or two. There's places for zingers and a net both of which I enjoyed using. Warm when you want it to be, wicking when you want it to be and a great fit too. Looks great too. Nicely done

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket Keeps me dry and blocks the wind. Love the cuffs that keep water out. Good size and location of pockets. Packs down small which is convenient on the river. The orange color is great
