Great jacket for trout fishing in Northern New Mexico
Reviewed by Trout Stalker from Taos, NM on Wednesday, December 04, 2013
Well, we all have our reasons and expectations for purchasing fishing gear. This jacket, for me, was to provide warmth that would allow me to stay on the river longer in cold weather. I really wanted a size medium, but it was not available through STP, however, in retrospect the large I purchased is great when I'm already "layered". This jacket is my last line of defense against the elements, except when raining, it is not water proof.
Here's what makes the jacket work for me, as mentioned above, the size large works great in cold weather with layers already in place. The Columbia jacket provides tremendous warmth without adding huge bulk and weight. It has very good range of movement in the shoulders for casting.
