Tenkara USA is proud to introduce a new, truly functional piece of apparel, the Fly-Weight Jacket. Often the best fishing conditions involve inclement weather, and having a portable and effective rain jacket can turn a cold, wet slog back to the car into a banner day on the water. Also, a light rain jacket is a wonderful windbreaker when the temperature is pleasant until the wind kicks up.
Compact Design for Easy Storage and Deployment
The Fly-Weight Jacket is designed to be easily stored. It can be rolled up into its own pocket, making for a very tight package. For my use, I’ve found that rolling it up into the hood and then cinching it down with the tension string on the hood is packable enough and a bit easier to do on the fly. Either way, it’s very easy to keep in your pack or vest and easily deployed when bad weather hits.
Clean, Low-Profile Features for Hassle-Free Fishing
A huge gripe I’ve had with “fishing” jackets in the past is that they’re not “clean”. The few zippers on the Fly-Weight are well constructed but very low profile. This minimizes the chance they’ll snag on your line when hand-lining in the fish of the day. A favorite feature is the “pit-zips” on the jacket, which allow the already breathable jacket to be even more comfortable. The pit-zips can be closed up when that pleasant light summer rain turns into a gusting sideways downpour. Even if the weather ends the fishing for a bit, it will help you stay dry until the squall passes.
Standard Features and Stylish Olive & Black Colors
The jacket also has the standard features of a modern rain jacket, with velcro cinching cuffs on the sleeves and a reinforced (but not overbuilt) hood to help hold its shape and coverage. The olive color is exactly what I want in a fishing garment, natural in tone but nice looking enough that I’m not afraid to wear it to my favorite burger joint on the way home. The Jacket also comes in a classic black tone.
