Rated 5 out of 5 by DonW great item
Well made, heavy duty all around. Little bulky but loosens up in time. This is second one I own, one green one blue. Good value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tim51 Not what I was expecting
I do not think this would be a good casual or fishing jacket. Jacket does seem very well made though, and seems heavy duty. The arms are huge, even seems to big when wore over another jacket. I am big and short, so the sleeves are to long for me, which I am use to with other clothes. The problem is this jacket has no buttons or elastic at the end of the arms, and the sleeves ride down over my hand. Also the hood is to big, it comes down over my eyes, even with head gear on. It is probably designed to be worn over a hard hat. This jacket is probably ok with a huge coat and hardhat on. Also the pockets are small and in a strange place if you want to keep your hands in the pockets to stay dry. I will probably just throw this in the truck to wear in an emergency, I will not wear this fishing all day though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SockeyeBob Great Rain Jacket
I have had this same style rain jacket for ten years and used it almost daily in the Pacific Northwest every Winter. It held up from using chainsaws to Installing large culverts until I retired. Can't say enough about it.
Just don't get Halibut slime in the pockets. Its hard to get the stink out!!!

Used the rain jacket and bibs outside Homer, Alaska
in 6 to 8 foot seas with rain every day for 5 days. No tears and very comfortable.
