Patagonia River Salt Jacket

I had to upgrade my rain jacket during these last multi-day storms so that I did not freeze while fishing on the river. I had been eyeing the Patagonia Women’s River Salt jacket ever since I started working here in the shop. I ended up making the purchase on a whim right before I headed out on the river this last weekend. The guilt I was feeling while driving to the river immediately evaporated as soon as I got out and started to rig up in the rain. I couldn’t be happier with the purchase. The H2No Performance standard of Patagonia has raised the bar for outdoor rain gear with the waterproofness, durability and breathability being guaranteed and no doubt high quality. This jacket is absolutely perfect for fishing not only in torrential rain storms but also for those cooler days that may or may not bring rain. It is definitely a great jacket to always pack with you on your fishing or river adventures. The features that I love most about this jacket starts with the fact that it keeps you warm while keeping you dry, very few rain jackets have kept me warm. I love the rubber cuffs and that I don’t have to pull up my sleeves before I reach in the water to release my catch and still stay dry. I hate wet sleeves more than anything! The hood with the cinch allows for you to be fully covered and comfortable, it does not get in the way and fall down over your face like many hoods do. Patagonia has definitely hit the mark with this jacket, I would confidently suggest it to anyone that is in the market for a top quality rain jacket.

Here I am wearing my new favorite jacket for an awesome fishing day on the Ruby in the rain.
