I LOVED the previous versions
I LOVED the previous versions of this jacket! Sadly, I returned this one because it now actually has LESS pockets! In a fishing jacket, in particular, the MORE pockets the better! I was super bummed out, cause I like every other aspect of the jacket. My suggestion, bring back the three chest pocket design and the drop in mesh internal pockets for w...

Perfect for wet conditions
This jacket delivers. The fit is spot on with the usual Patagonia sizing. The jacket is a little stiff but that's probably what makes it absolutely impenetrable to whatever nature throws at this jacket. Comfortable to wear with waders during Fall, Winter, and Spring for fly fishing. Hood is excellent with keeping elements out.
Wrist Cuffs not well designed - Warm and Waterproof
The jacket is very warm and waterproof and perfect for using as a shell, however there is too much material in the wrist section of the jacket and it bunches up and exposes the velcro to my wrists. I wore it for two days stripping streamers and my left wrist is rubbed raw.

Hi Nick, we never want you to feel uncomfortable in your gear. Please feel free to begin a return or exchange here: https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
Abrasive Velcro Cuffs
The velcro straps on the cuffs are so abrasive on their edge that they cut into my wrists rather badly. The flap at the bottom of the chest pockets would hang up on the steering wheel of my boat. The previous model had a totally smooth front which I prefer.

Best jacket for Montauk weather
I guide out at Montauk and I have worn this jacket for at least five years straight. I fish an open boat and this jacket has kept me warm and dry through months of the worst weather Montauk can throw at you. It has the right pockets in the right place. The hood provides great protection even at speed. The cuffs keep my arms dry even when lipping fi... Read Moresh. This is the jacket to fish Montauk.
Adaptable, warm and dry jacket
I live in California and mostly fish Norcal. It can get chilly on the coast fly fishing the salt and since I hate waders in the ocean, I use wetsuit bottoms and booties. I am dry and warm with minimal layers underneath. Pockets are amazing and just where they should be in a wading jacket. I am a minimalist and so the pocket profile is great and I c... Read Morean easily store a large fly box if needed. Also the cuffs - awesome! I know Simms gets points for the shingled cuffs, but I love these - super easy and no snags or water leakage. Also this top notch jackets is a shade cheaper than the competition without sacrificing quality and is eco based which is a must for me. I got the XL in case I needed to put a down jacket underneath, and for a bit more movement, but at 6'3 230 (yeah thanks Covid for that weight increase) the XL is still big. I'd recommend going with the L if you are at 210 or less. I have also used this jacket in 70 degree sunny weather and I was perfect - it breathes well so a good range in temps without having to strip layers losing valuable fishing time. 5/5 for me and then some. Pair it with the waterproof Patagonia rolltop bag and you can walk the beach, fish and zen out after a tough day at work.
Great all around Rain Jacket
This rain jacket proved to be one of the most used items in our closet. It folds in on its self, making it a very portable option for hiking, rafting and fishing. I put it on over a Nano Puff mid-layer and it works as a great fall/winter combo when the wind is blowing. It doesn't wet out in 12+ hours on the river in the rain and is easily repa... Read Moreirable on the fly just like there waders. The only issue I have had is if you have larger forearms you can't quite get the sleeves pushed up all the way. Even with this I would buy them again. Over all, best of show in the rain jacket category!!
Superb Fishing Jacket
I had originally saw the River Salt jacket and thought that it's features were absolutely amazing. When I found the jacket in the Rock Camo, I immediately bought it, and I am ecstatic that I did. This thing is an absolute tank of a fishing jacket. It has 4 pockets: 2 for fly boxes and 2 hand warming stations. The hood fits perfectly over the b... Read Morerim of your hat. The wrist cuffs allow you to release your fish without getting wet. In my opinion, it can be used in any season. It's not ~too~ hot for the summer, and with additional baselayers it has been perfect for me this wintery season Steelheading. Not to mention it's the coolest looking jacket out there. I am 6'7" 260 and ordered the XXL and it fits me perfectly.
Rugged Rain Protection
I have a lot of the Patagonia H20 gear but this Salt Water jacket is special compared to them. The material is definitely thicker and provides large chest pockets so I can store my most important items during some pretty consistent rain. Already looking at picking one up for the wife for fishing.
Great Foul Weather Fishing Jacket
This is the best Patagonia piece I've purchased in a long time. Everything from the fit to the detail in the cuffs is perfect. The hood is killer and fits well. And most importantly, after six hours in heavy Eastern Idaho rain while floating, I was still dry as could be under the jacket. I highly recommend.
This jacket is well worth the money. The camo is so cool in person and the neoprene wrist cuffs are awesome and keep water out when dunking fish. The jacket fits large but when layering is perfect size. Zippers and high class and the water shedding on this jacket is great. Pockets are high for wader accessibility witch takes a little getting use to... Read More but other than that its an amazing jacket
Superb performance in all-day drenching rain
Comfortable on a boat for several days in 45-degree all-day rain with the liner and a wool t-shirt and fleece and good rain pants and wool long johns. The hood is just right -- close to the face to keep the spray out and still moves when needed. Sleeves work well with gloves. Length in the back is just right -- not too long, so it doesn't get ...

Nothing but good things to say about this jacket. I have to hide it from my fisherman son. I'll have to break down and get him one when he's old enough to take care of it.
Chris B.- there isn’t pockets lower because it’s a wading jacket, lower pockets can potentially get water in them. A quality wading jacket will always have pockets higher up. Unreal, tough as nail jackets. I found the jacket true to size with enough room to layer for Great Lakes Steelheading where temps can be chilly in the early spring and late f... Read Moreall. Love the pockets and the blend of camo. Great attention to the details with this jacket for a wading angler in mind. Another great quality Patagonia product.!!
