Happy to stand in the rain

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - TACKLE -

Worn over thigh and waist waders or wa­ter­proof overtrousers, this three­quar­ters-length Greys jacket pro­vides ideal cov­er­age when you’re stand­ing on the bank in cold weather. It’s very warm be­cause it has a polyester quilted lin­ing. It also has a DWR coat­ing so wa­ter beads off the out­side. In its new state it’s quite a heavy, stiff jacket. The dou­ble-zip open­ing is pro­tected by a de­cent baf­fle and a good storm­flap. The sleeves ta­per into a cuff with a neo­prene in­ner for a good seal and a pro­tec­tive outer. The hood has a three-way ad­just­ment and a stiff­ened peak. Two zipped hand­warmer pock­ets are at a com­fort­able height, there’s a sin­gle wa­ter-re­sis­tant zipped chest pocket for ac­ces­sories, and deep top-open­ing main pock­ets that sit at waist level and will take a large fly-box. Sizes M-XXL. Greys sell Overtrousers (£149.99) to match the jacket. They have de­tach­able braces and are high waisted for a good fit. Re­in­forced pan­els on the knees and seat make them durable and there are wa­ter-re­sis­tant zips at the an­kle cuffs and fly open­ing. Sizes are M-XXL.

Not cheap, but valu­able if you’re to en­joy a few sea­sons of reg­u­lar stillwater sport.
