I have been wanting this jacket for a while but can't justify the full price. Luckily, just found the old style version at a deep discount. Can't wait to get out there with it! Right now I'm wearing an Obermeyer ski jacket with sealed seams and waterproof zippers. It works great for cold weather but isn't designed as well as I'd like for fishing. No neoprene cuffs, no d-ring for my net, no fly box pocket, etc. The streamlined design is helpful sometimes, though.
