Patagonia claims the 2012 River Salt Jacket is the toughest and most durable shell constructed. Even calling it a “bombproof fishing-specific shell.”
Constructed with the same 4-layer polyester plain weave fabric as the new Rio Azul Wader, Patagonia plans to put you on a dry spell longer than the one the kid who played McLovin was on before he hit the big screen. The jacket has many new features such as three TPU-coated front zip pockets sized to hold fly boxes, waterproof and corrosion-resistant riri AquaZip zippers, and an innovative, fully vented adjustable hood.
Available early 2012 for $349.
