The Carbon Jacket from Skwala fly fishing is a lightweight, packable rain jacket that is purpose built to deliver protection from heavy rains and comfort in the summer heat. This piece features a clean and functional design but it is the 4-way stretch material that really grabbed our attention and sets it apart from every other rain jacket in this category.
Built for anglers who demand flexibility and dexterity but aren’t willing to sacrifice comfort, the Carbon Jacket is fully waterproof, truly breathable, and easily packable. Though designed to pair with our Carbon Waders, this shell stands alone—weighing less than a pound and featuring a four-way stretch hard-shell outer layer that moves unlike anything you’ve ever worn. Whether you travel across the globe, or just higher up your local creek than most are willing to venture, the Carbon Jacket will keep you dry without holding you back.
The Carbon Jacket was developed as a warm weather exterior shell. Built with a performance fit, the Carbon Jacket fits true to size when worn with light layers underneath. If paired with heavier insulation pieces you may want to size up.
- Lightweight, waterproof textiles finished with highly breathable laminates are implemented to provide protection from the elements for your pursuits in warmer environments.
- The Carbon Jacket uses Toray's® Primeflex™ yarns for a full-stretch face fabric designed for mobility and comfort. Cross-sectional structure and spiral yarn allow Primeflex fabric to stretch without the use of elastane. An added laminate creates a full-stretch, waterproof/breathable textile and the interior circular knit backer delivers soft next to skin comfort.
- Built lightweight and packable for warm days with thunderstorms in the forecast, the Carbon Jacket comes in at just under a pound to conveniently stash away until it’s needed.
