This jacket has become the favorite of the crew at D&H. It breathes so well and does not have huge pockets sticking out that I wear around town and on vacations for non-fishing use. - Mark The River Salt Jacket is Patagonia's toughest, most durable fishing shell, made with 4-layer waterproof/breathable H2No® Performance Standard wader fabric for long-lasting technical performance. Chasing the Montauk blitz into late October requires industrial-strength protection from the elements. The River Salt Jacket stands up to salt spray, hard use and serious nor’easters. Now made with an even tougher H2No® Performance Standard 4-layer, 6.1-oz wader fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, this is the burliest waterproof/breathable fishing jacket on the market. The waterproof, corrosion-resistant YKK® front zipper and watertight, adjustable cuffs seal out wind-driven precipitation. Three large, streamlined front pockets hold fly boxes; close with coated, water-repellent zips; and won’t snag flying line on the shoot. When you have to crank up and run into the teeth of it, the innovative, vented hood stays in place at speed. The River Salt is a medium-length fishing jacket.
