Here's what other sites are saying:

Hardcore salmon, steelhead and trout anglers around the world tend to share two common traits: obsession bordering on lunacy and SST Jackets. The latest generation of this iconic fishing jacket now features a more modern silhouette and a new two-tone color pattern. Made from H2No Performance Standard 3-layer nylon double ripstop with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the SST is durable yet remarkably light. It has an integrated hood with single-pull adjustment, a YKK Vislon Aquaguard main zipper, and corrosion-proof, highly water resistant PU-coated zippers on the handwarmer pockets and large upper back pocket. The now-classic large, gusseted chest pockets (with forceps stash on the outside of the left pocket) are waterproof, set high for deep wading and have inside zippered tippet pockets and a key clip; new tabs keep the pockets streamlined against the body when not in use. A double belt loop on the back allows you to cinch your wading belt over the jacket and waders, creating a nearly waterproof seal for greater safety in the event of a spill. Streamlined reverse StretchCoat cuffs lie flat, resist line snagging and seal out water. Further details include Y-Joint sleeves with anatomically curved elbows, hidden utility keeper, three Beastie D-rings (two on front, one on back) and hidden rod holder. The SST is Patagonia's shortest-length fishing jacket.

When winter hits hard, don't settle for the couch and movie marathons, fill up your tackle box and get out while the rivers are free of other anglers, and full of hungry fish. Layer up and zip on the Patagonia SST Fishing Jacket to prepare yourself for winter's worst, starting with waterproof and corrosion resistant Vislon Aquaguard zippers on your main zipper, and pockets, so you can stay dry and warm. Two large bellowed chest pockets are fully sealed as well, so you can stay comfortable in high wading, and both are decked out with exterior tool docks to minimize the need for digging through pockets with wet and cold hands. The body is composed of fully-taped and waterproof H2No 3 layer nylon with a DWR coating that allows for breathing and moisture wicking, while remaining waterproof. Y-Joint sleeves and anatomically curved elbows stretch with you, so you don't feel restricted in motion while casting a line. Moving down from the elbow, reverse stretch cuffs wrap around your wrists snugly, so you'll be able to keep the water out when you're admiring your catch, and setting it free again into the icy abyss. Topped with an articulated hood that's easily adjusted you are on your way to keeping warm through the icy months on the river.
