With its ultra burly, four layer waterproof and breathable fabric, water and corrosion resistant front zipper, and fully adjustable hood, the Patagonia River Salt Jacket is tough enough to handle full days chasing wild steelhead in the Pacific Northwest or paddling rainy rivers up in big sky country. An adjustable storm hood allows you to buckle things down once the wind starts to rip, while an elastic drawcord at the hem prevents wind backed rain from blowing up the coat. Mesh draining components readily shed water if you happen wade one or two steps too deep. Three zippered front pockets give you a place to warm your digits before you switch out flies and will accommodate a fly box for quick access. Multiple tackle loops allow you to attach nippers and hemostats, and two internal pockets keep any valuables you want kept warm and dry next to your body.
