Raindrops are falling

A modern jacket has to be absolutely waterproof - and at the same time breathable. Modern fabrics allow this, but not all are equally good or long lasting.

Try the Cabelas Goretex. I have two, have fished Iceland and British Columbia in constant rain in them, and never had a leak. Just wish they had a pocket on the back for extra stuff. They do have the neoprene half-gloves that you don't like, but you don't have to usr them. And I think they work OK. Look at LL Bean wading jackets too. They have graet products and stand behind them.

The Aquatex jacket is discontinued and finding an old jacket in some store is most likely your only chance. One Google search and I found it here (in Danish).

But there must be more places where they have some lying around.

Hi there!
Where can I get the improved Scierra Aquatex short wading jacket you talk about in your article?
Any online shop?
This jacket is impossible to get here in Spain where I live.
