    Thumbs up Redington Stratus II wading jacket

    I got one of these for Christmas last year. My last wading jacket had been stolen a few years before and I had just never got around to buying one.
    My wife did a bit of research and ended up buying me the Stratus II I am really glad she did.
    For the money I think it has to be one of the good deals out there. Up here it was listed at $170.00, I bought it from a flyfhop south of the border for about $117.00 that included shipping.
    The jacket is well made, looks good and lives up to all of the attributes listed on Redington's website.
    I read a review yesterday that suggested the material may be a bit light for bushwacking, but Ray and I have forced our way though moose pruned brush that was very dense and so far so good. I alsways take a bit of care when going through this stuff anyway, no matter what coat I am wearing. If the moose chewed brush doesn't get you, the beaver bitten pungee sticks will.
    The jacket has a lined collar, two extra large front pockets a back zippered compartment and fits snug arounf the wrists. It goes well with my fishing backpack and there are no extra loose straps or poxket flaps to get in the way of anything including my line while I am casting.
    Wind proof and water proof, it is just a very comfortable piece of clothing and when you are out for eight hours of brush bashing and pouring rain, comfort is a pretty important factor....
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    Jimmie there is a review of them and other foul weather jackets in the winter 2010 issue of Flyfishing & Tying Journal. It may help!
