Happy to stand in the rain
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.
