Rated 5 out of 5 by tailfin1 fits me well
Well made for price point. I haven't used it in rain yet but did use it in icy river. Fits me well in the XL at 5'-9" and 215 lbs. It needs a zinger loop on front.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jimi52 Happy So Far
Got the jacket Tues.tried it on and the fit was great, got a medium, I'm 5' 9" and weigh 165lbs. Went fishing yesterday, no rain so I can't say how waterproof it is. However it was 15 degrees out and along with an under armor cold gear top,a sweatshirt , and fleece pullover, with the jacket I was warm as toast. I rode my mt. bike two miles to fish and the jacket prevented the wind from getting thru.I would give 5 stars if the jacket holds up to rain the way it has to wind and cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Britty Nice jacket for the money!
I purchased this jacket for my husband for Christmas. It was true to size, and good construction. It seems pretty short in length, more so when he raises his arms, but he'll be wearing it with chest waders. So, no worries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeeper2424 Best Wading Jacket I Have Ever Used
Absolutely amazing jacket. Great for wading, fly fishing, and as rain gear. I use this all the time, but especially when I am fishing for steelhead in November on the tributaries of Lake Erie.
This jacket is not super thick (nor should it be as a wading jacket), but it blocks the wind and rain 100%. I normally layer up and run hot as it is, so I prefer jackets that are not very thick. The built in hat brim is great, the chest pockets are deep and hold just the right amount of stuff, the fly holder is perfect for your always used, go to flies and the Velcro cuffs keep any water that might run down your arms out. The zippers have always worked perfectly and the flap that folds over to to protect them has never failed. It also has a net loop that works very well.
And I think my favorite feature is the fact that I can roll this jacket up and make it so compact that I can stuff it into the back of my vest so it is with me all of the time. The fact that it is water/wind proof and is highly portable means I can stay on the water longer when the weather gets lousy because it is ALWAYS with me.
The only thing I would like to make potential buyers aware of is the lack of traditional front hand pockets. This jacket DOES NOT have pockets for your hands. This has never bothered me but felt it was worth mentioning

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJLColorado Emerger II Rain Jacket Lives up to its Billing
I just finished a very wet 4 day fishing trip and had ample opportunity to test the effectiveness of the Emerger II wading jacket. I replaced two other fairly new rain jackets with the Emerger II because they simply failed to keep me dry. I fish throughout the year in the rocky mountain region and we've had lots of rain this spring. You will not be disappointed in this rain jacket for fishing. I found the fit quit good, the cuffs do a great job of keeping under layers dry when you reach into the water, the hood adjustments worked great and the draw strings at the waist helped lock in the warmth. It rained three out of four days on my recent trip to the Bighorn in MT and the wind was a constant companion. I stayed dry and comfortable with temperatures in the 40's. Highly recommend this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1923 Waterproof, Roomy
Excellent for wet and cool fishing conditions. Wear a 200polartec jacket if cold weather. Rubber lining with nylon outer layer. You will sweat if you wear for extended time in warm weather. Reminds me of rubber and canvas hip waders years ago. Great and plentiful pockets. Velcro patches. I put A-positive patch on one side(we are both the same blood type). I will add a Velcro American flag also. Velcro wrist closure, will not hinder blood flow like elastic band does.
Thank you for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by walyfish2 Wading jacket
Just got it. Definitely waterproof, zippers, pockets, fly patch, net loop all work well. I have not tested it to the extreme, but my guess would be it would be sweaty on a hot rainy day. Works well as a light raincoat around town

Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyFishCincy Great Value Wading Jacket
This is a great value-priced wading jacket. Fits great with room for layers. Lots of freedom of movement. Great pockets with good edges for hemostats today attach to. This is a much nicer jacket than I expected for the money and has great styling. Waterproof and I like the way the cuffs keep water out as well.
