The fleece pile liner in this jacket makes it very warm and comfortable in cold weather. The outer layer is a wool blend sweater material. It also is cut a bit slim in the arms and body so that it fits well under my waders or not excess bulk in the sleeves. The only draw back is that when the bottoms of the sleeves get wet as when I hold fish to release, it takes a long time to dry. Also, in cold wet weather, I recommend wearing a waterproof shell over this jacket.

Redington comes through again. This is a quality jacket that performed beyond my expectation. I used it for the first time on a recent trip and the warmth and comfort exceeds any fleece garment that I own. The only regret I had was the weather wasn't cold enough to wear it all the time. The cut of the jacket leaves ample room for a base layer or two and still have the flexibility to throw flies all day long. I can't wait to put it to a real test this winter because this will be the first jacket I pull out of the closet when I head out into below freezing weather.
