We took this Columbia Cascade Wading Jacket to Alaska to see if it could keep us dry. Two and a half days of steady rain later, we still were. Their Omni-Tech membrane makes the jacket waterproof, windproof, and breathable. The cut of the Cascade is roomy enough for comfortable casting. The neoprene cuff will keep your arm dry when releasing fish, and there are functional elastic pockets to keep your fly or lure boxes in place. The garment is guaranteed for life and costs around $160.
