Pjosh06, I know that the Orvis Pro Guide has a cable that can be tightened around the waist. I'm sure the Simms jackets and others have a similar option, can anyone second that?

The Cabela's Dry plus reef drifter has a bungee with spring clips around the bottom. Actually exposed in two locations pretty close to the front so it's easy to get to underway. Also in the hood.

This is the first "purpose made" fly fishing foul weather jacket I've had, and its fairly budget compared to some. Not that I haven't had other equally good rain protection in camo, blue, yellow, about every color, etc, for hunting and mountaineering, but just not designed with pockets and features particularly useful for fly fishing. I'm really liking it, even though I don't have any real like for like comparisons to offer.

Simms Guide!!! Straight up. The cuffs cover the seals so lines will not hang up. Great construction...still fishing mine third winter with out any issues. Retractors, great collar, big pockets and even a good back pocket for extra gloves or cap. I will go straight to purchase another of the same when I am done torchering this a jacket. I've fished three hard winters on the Erie tribe for steelies...can't say enough about it.
