L.L. Bean Paclite Wading Jacket

L.L. Bean Paclite Wading Jacket

Good-bye, Quasimodo; hello, Cary Grant. This superlight Gore-Tex laminate folds extremely flat and small, avoiding the dreaded and uncomfortable hunchback effect common among anglers who have to carry a rain jacket in the rear pocket of a fishing vest. Two big front pockets will accommodate large fly or lure boxes, and a well-designed zipper system keeps rainwater from seeping against your soft, white underbelly. Available in men's sizes small through 2XL; $199. L.L. Bean, 800-347-4552; www.llbean.com.
