New Rain Jacket Suggestions...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys need some input on a new rain jacket. im looking for one that is 100% waterproof and durable add in a lil comfort. I just tried the bps pro jackets and the neoprene cuffs were too dang tight. i would really like to have a jacket with some neoprene cuffs so the rain doesnt come in as i raise the arm. even the velcro cuffs allow some water in. well any ideas or suggestions throw them this way. and if it comes in a tall even better!!!!!

thanks

Granted, it's not easy to find 100% waterproof raingear that's both strong and lightweight..

When I fished the Atlantic Ocean with a center-console, I wore "Helly Hansen" raingear,

Although I consider Helly Hansen the ultimate in wet gear, it's lobsterman gear and weighs a ton :angry:

My last rainsuit was "Frog Toggs", which was lightweight, surprisingly strong and well-suited to Florida storms.

Today I'm using "PATAGONIA" wet gear and have no complaints. Though it's not Helly Hansen, the Patagonia rainsuit

is totally dry, is made of highly durable polyamide, has a drawstring hood, zipper-down front and velcro sleeves.

BPS 100mph!!!! Incredible rainwear. Gore tex. You get used to the cuffs and believe me they are awesome. No rain dripping down your sleaves. When you pick up a fish no water up your sleave. This suit keeps you 100% dry.

Stormhide. Light, flexible, super dry and well made. I've had mine 5 years and they are great. I live in the Pacific NW where rain gear gets a workout.

Thanks for the Stormhide suggestion. I'll check into it.

My Goretex does a good job as long as I do the ReviveX treatment every year or two. If your Goretex loses its water shedding ability, get a bottle at Bass Pro for renewed life!

I'm with RoLo on the Frogg Toggs. They still have the bad rap from when they came out a few years ago. The zippers and fabric are better now. I used mine in the Poconos a couple of weeks back and I was in some downpours. My suit is a jacket and bibs that weigh in around 17 ounces total. They will keep you dry and the fabric does breathe well as advertised. They kept the wind out reasonably well and I never broke a sweat. My only complaint is no pockets on the jacket or bibs.

Would I wear them walking through the woods with briars and branches constantly tearing at them ? No. Would I wear them in a monsoon ? No. But for under $50 nothing else comes close.

Here's a link to the place I got mine and they have free shipping. I think you can buy the jackets and pants seperate also.

For lightweight gear Frogg Toggs are awesome. I have a new pair and the zipper still sucks but with just the velcro on the front I still stay dry and never get hot. Cabela's Guidewear is good if you need something for colder weather. Their Dryplus is pretty nice too but you do have to treat it every couple years to keep it waterproof.
