Price Paid: gift
This jacket fails to be useful as a wet weather fishing jacket. Water absorbent material in the sleeves and front zipper liner. Very difficult to open the zippers and when you do open them rain pours in. The goofy sleeves catch on oars, branches, fill with water when reaching into the water and flop around when you cast.
I can't imagine this jacket being tested by anyone fishing in the rain and it is supposed to be a salmon steelhead fishing jacket. Overall this jacket has frankly made me wonder what the heck the people at Patagonia are thinking. Form over function I suppose. Well, it failed miserably. Sad to see Patagonia going this way with their products.
