    So, I only gave 4 stars because, although I have fished in the jacket a couple of times now, it wasn't raining that hard any of those time. It was cold and misty but not really raining. I'm sure it will work well in a downpour but so far I haven't had to test that. Here is what I do know. The jacket is really stiff initially but softens up over time, the hood fits well and isn't so big that it impedes vision. The velcro flap in your sleeve does keep water from running down your arm after your hands get wet and you start casting again. That alone almost makes this jacket worth the price. The built in retractors are a good idea and I might use them at some point but most of my stuff is already set up on my pack the way I like it and so I doubt they will see much use. They also aren't really that long so not sure if they'll stretch over time. I'm 6'2 215 and got the double xl cause that was what they had. For me the jacket isn't too large and will allow for adequate layering underneath if warranted. Plus with it being a double XL it doesn't seem as short and I would be able to wear it for other things if the weather was nasty. Very pleased with the jacket and would recommend it to anyone.

    You always expect to find great deals at STP. This item with an additional 25% of was no exception!

    I have purchased three of these jackets (for me any two friends). We all absolutely love the jacket, all three of us are avid fisherman (60+ fishing days per year).
    As you probably know it rains a lot in Vancouver, I have used this jacket in heavy rain and it kept me completely dry and worm.
    I love wrist cuffs that allows you to stay dry even if you submerge your hand in the water.

    A little stiff material but overall good quality and sized correctly

    It's as advertised. A very functional wading jacket at a great price. The color is questionable but the jacket is made for the pouring down rain not a fashion show.

    You have a picture of the jacket in Honey Brown but STP calls it Army Green. Very misleading. I will be returning this jacket tomorrow.

    I was reviewing sizing as well as features on a number of Jackets from Simms to Patagonia. This particular jacket did not have all the bells and whistles that the Guide G3 jacket (?) had like the back inner pocket and all the vertical zippered pockets but it does have the inside cuff clinching of the sleeve ends and the line will not get caught on the sleeve. It also has a WONDERFUL HOOD that looks like it could really be an excellent rain shed feature. I was also worried about the ability to layer under the Medium size as I recently lost 20 lbs in a diet / lifestyle change and am trying to downsize some of my clothing. There IS room to layer for me in this jacket and I couldn't be any happier with my purchase of this jacket. I am looking forward to being dry and enjoying myself this fall on the rivers. Thank you Serra Trading Post for the great price and I am surprised no one had yet to review this jacket. I believe it will be great. I may write another review once I have had It out a few times to see the features in action.
