In the Russian Arctic, salmon season means 24 hours of daylight and more great water than you can shake a graphite stick at. The Patagonia Minimalist Wading Jacket fends off fatigue and inclement weather so you can take full advantage of the opportunities at hand. Made from durable H2No Performance Standard 2.5-layer nylon ripstop fabric with a waterproof/breathable barrier and Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish, the Minimalist sheds weather like other premium fly fishing jackets at about half the weight. Two large upper fly box pockets with highly water-repellent zips carry what you need, while the two lower hand pockets keep your off hand warm during the swing. Add in the fully adjustable hood and cuffs plus a bungee drawcord at the waist and it’s clear: The Minimalist provides all the features of heavier, full-featured fly-fishing jackets. It is also our longest jacket (5.5 inches longer than the SST).

Comments about Patagonia Minimalist Wading Jacket:

As one might expect, Patagonia has produced a nice garment, though it is slightly pricey. Since the hold point is packability and lightness, I wish that it packed away into its own pocket, as others do. And a hook on the back would be nice.

      The sleeve on the large is actually a 35" sleeve; the medium is a 34" length.
