Winter time is not the only season that the avid fisherman needs to protect themselves from the elements. Granted, a big goose down waterproof parka is most likely not appropriate during the warmer months but a lightweight breathable waterproof jacket is the most likely the best candidate.
The trouble with most waterproof jackets is the issue of breathability. Most of the inexpensive jackets are made of plastics that don’t let any water in or most importantly any air out. As the day warms up so does the inside of the jacket, the water and your sweat, starts to condensate inside the jacket and soaking back into your clothes. Have you ever experienced taking off a rain jacket only to find that your shirt is as wet as it would have been if you wore no jacket at all?
At Fishfield our most popularlightweight jacket is the Stormr Nano. Now granted you wouldn’t typically wear it if you were fly fishing a Northwest stream in 100 degree weather, but it does come in handy when fishing coastal rivers and waters during the summer when the Pacific fog has rolled in and the thermometer is stuck at 60%. With a Stormr Nano jacket you will be comfortable and dry for the entire day.
Some of the features of the Stormr Nano jacket are:
- 20k Waterproof & Ultra-Breathable
- Fully seam sealed
- Modern ergonomic fit
- YKK Aquaguard center-front and pocket zippers
- Hand pockets
- Drawcord adjustable waist
- Attached, two-way adjustable hood
These jackets are very durable and are built to last season after season. Cleaning them is easy and the upkeep is minimal. Just hang them up and they will dry out quickly.
