If you're headed into a squall, nothing gives a better feeling than knowing you've got a good set of rain gear waiting nearby. Orvis' new breathable Tailwaters Wading Jacket fits that billing nicely.
Made from the same breathable material as the company's popular No Sweat waders, the Tailwaters jacket uses a No Sweat membrane combined with a microfiber laminate, waterproof shell to provide comfort and protection in the heaviest of downpours. Large cargo pockets store fly boxes and other gear, while distributing weight evenly.
The Tailwaters jacket also features the Orvis-exclusive Dry-Cuff system, a dunk-proof cuff design that features elasticized cuffs with hook-and-loop cinch straps that prevent water from running up the sleeves -- even when the arms are fully immersed. Fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets and a hood with an internally adjustable face gasket protect against winds and hard rain.
The jacket is offered in tan, olive and orange and retails for $225.
