Patagonia's durable, newly redesigned 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, its the burliest waterproof/breathable fishing jacket on the market. The waterproof, corrosion-resistant YKK Vislon Aquaguard front zipper and watertight, adjustable cuffs seal out wind-driven precipitation; a new overcuff keeps line from catching. Two large, streamlined front pockets hold fly boxes, close with coated, water-repellent zips, lie flat when empty, and wont 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 Patagonia's medium-length fishing jacket, with a hem 2 inches longer than their shortest fishing jacket, the SST.

With its ultra-burly, four-layer waterproof and breathable fabric, water- and corrosion-resistant front zipper, and fully adjustable hood, the Patagonia Men's River Salt Jacket is tough enough to handle full days chasing wild steelhead in the Pacific Northwest or paddling rainy rivers up in Montucky. An adjustable storm hood allows you to buckle things down once the wind starts to rip, while an elastic drawcord at the hem prevents wind-backed rain from blowing up the coat. Mesh panels readily shed water if you happen to wade one or two steps too deep. The jacket is equipped with three zippered front pockets, giving you a place to warm your digits before you switch out flies or space to accommodate a fly box for quick access. Multiple tackle loops allow you to attach nippers and hemostats, and two internal pockets keep any valuables you want to kept warm and dry next to your body.
