A good wading jacket is critical to your enjoyment, and safety. A good wading jacket is designed to keep water from entering over the top of your waders in the event you take a stumble. The cuffs on most wading jackets also prevent water from entering up through the sleeves and into the body of the jacket. If you get water running down your sleeve its very uncomfortable! You can trust these jackets and brands to keep you dry, safe, and happy while wading and fly fishing.
