Aside from gadwalls and teal, opening day in the Atchafalaya features gators, snakes and mosquitoes. After that runs the gamut of skim-ice, torrential rains, stinging winds and greenheads. Through it all stand the hardwoods, cypress, saw-grass and...you. Under it all is the MUD! It's not a place for the faint of heart. The weather changes by the hour, and the critters and terrain leave no margin for error.
Rugged terrain and the vagaries of weather made this the perfect place to develop the perfect all-purpose waterfowling jacket. We started with our windproof and weather resistant Stealth-Shell and backed it up with a coral fleece layer for warmth. Then, we added pockets. Rear cargo, chest cargo and zippered hand pockets provide incredible storage, and we finished things off with lycra wrist inserts and YKK water resistant zippers.
Until this jacket, we thought the words “all-purpose” had no place in waterfowling.
