One of the Best Surf Jackets I Own!
March 9, 2014
Just as the title says! It truly is the best. I used this all through the Fall Striper Run up until the end of November early December. I was warm and dry the entire time. Though I did layer some underneath. Even on the roughest days, I remained dry. It is like wearing a Wetsuit Top.
This jacket has 2 outside pockets with waterproof zippers and one interior with waterproof zipper. I had my phone with me each day and it remained dry! The jacket is made of Heavy Neoprene which encapsulates you and cuts the wind. The hood is adjustable so it will not be in your eyes or cut down on your peripheral vision. Which is important in the surf. I wore a base wickering layer and a sweatshirt and I was warm up to the end of the season. It is also breathable, as I did not sweat even a little with everything on, walking up and down the beach.
These jackets are sized big. So if you normally wear a 2XL, and you are planning on layering, stay with a 2XL. Unfortunately I did not have this advice, and bought a size larger than normal. I was swimming in it. So I recently bought my normal wear size, 2XL, and it fits perfect with layering. And cleanup could not be easier. Just hose it down after use and let it hang to dry. That is it!
I would recommend this jacked to any angler who is exposed to the harsh elements. And anyone that works outside day in and day out. Or anyone that wants to stay dry in a wet environment. It truly is a great jacket for the money!
