Default Redington Stratus Wading Jacket

After this last weekend spent fishing in an ice storm and being soaked through my "waterproof" rain jacket, I've come to the conclusion that I need a wading jacket.

My question is about sizing. This thing will only get worn during the colder days where layering is a must. I want something that is waterproof and will break the wind. I don't have a local shop that I can try these on at, but am concerned about layering underneath. Are these pretty slim fit, or is there enough room underneath that I'll be able put a few layers on when I'm fishing those 10* days?


Also, besides the stratus does anyone have any other recommendations that would be in the ~$200 price range? The stratus is much cheaper, so it's appealing on that front, but I'll spend the money to get a better product if I need t.

I just bought the Orvis Pro Guide jacket, but got it for $259. This thing is very waterproof, allows for adequate layering yet fits my thin body well, and I can stick my arms down into the water to land a fish or pick up something dropped and the cuffs keep my arms dry. Overall, a heck of a bargain if its still on sale!
