So you want the best? This is it. No question, this is the best, most waterproof, most breathable jacket out there. As a gear tester for GORE, I have been in some of the harshest conditions out there, and made it out thanks to my gear! This jacket may seem like it has no frills, but i will tell you it is LOADED with features! The reach through pockets came in handy every day! I can reach into my jacket pocket, and unzip the zipper with one hand so i can access my wader pocket, or insulated wader hand pouch on a cold day. The sizing allowing for layering during the brittle cold months, the roll away hood stays neatly tucked out of the way until you need it. And when its on, it stays out of your peripheral vision, and keeps your head warm, and dry of course. I wear this to work when it rains, because it just looks like a really nice rain jacket due to its plain front. But all the features you will need for fishing are tucked away in the zippered front pockets! Sunglasses pocket with magnetic closure, with a microfiber cloth included ! It has come in handy more than i thought it would! HUGE pockets capable of holding all the fly boxes, leaders, tools, and food you will need for a whole day on the water! Who needs a vest when you're wearing this? Attachment for a net on the back of the jacket comes in handy too. Don't forget the insulated, fleece lined hand pockets, and safety pocket inside the jacket for keys, phone, etc. Buy this, you won't need another, it will outlast your days on the water.
