PATAGONIA RIVER SALT WADING JACKET
The River Salt Jacket is Patagonia's toughest and most durable fishing shell, made with rugged, 4-layer waterproof/breathable H2No® Performance Standard wader fabric for the most challenging conditions. Our durable River Salt Jacket stands up to rain, wind, salt spray and seriously hard use. Made with ultra-tough H2No® Performance Standard 4-layer, 6.1-oz wader fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, it’s the burliest waterproof/breathable fishing jacket on the market.
The River Salt Jacket boasts some killer features including a waterproof, corrosion-resistant YKK® Vislon® Aquaguard® front zipper and watertight, adjustable cuffs seal out wind-driven precipitation. Two large, streamlined front pockets hold fly boxes, close with coated, water-repellent zips, lie flat when empty, and won’t snag flying line on the shoot; two cozy handwarmer pockets now feature zip closures to keep water and oar handles out; a zinger attachment on the left chest lets you keep small tools close at hand; an elastic drawcord at the hem has a mesh-lined casing that drains excess water. And when you have to crank up and run into the teeth of it, the innovative vented, single-pull adjustable hood stays in place at speed. The River Salt is our medium-length fishing jacket, with a hem half an inch shorter than the Minimalist and 2 inches longer than our shortest fishing jacket, the SST.

Most of my reviews start with a little back story and I apologize in advance for anyone who is bored by them but bottom line this jacket was exactly what I was looking for in a wading jacket. I have worn so many different jackets for so many applications most of them it was always some compromise. The cuffs were too loose the material never held up, some were pure rubber with no mobility and zero breathability. A lot of them were pullovers which makes some degrees of sense but makes it impossible to access anything and unbearable in any moderately warm weather. I ended up resorting to a performance shell which worked ok but the salt ruined all the zippers and eventually the jacket. This jacket is EXACTLY what I want and nothing I don't. High pockets, mobility is great and a full front waterproof zipper all corrosion resistant. I also want to comment on the size, I'm a large, but a large large and this jacket provided ample room for wearing a fleece under it. So for me it was perfect.

Durable material that is breathable and easy to layer with other products for those days when its 40 in the morning and 70 in the afternoon.

I I originally purchased this coat for fishing the Salmon River in NY. It's been great for challenging and cold days on the stream. It's also great for saltwater. I've used to from shore and from a boat. It's tough and warm and cleans up easily.
