Patagonia River Salt Jacket Review

Patagonia River Salt Jacket Review

It’s always so easy to write a product review on something that is a not just a good product but a really, really, really good product.

The Patagonia River Salt jacket has been an outstanding product for us and well, when you sell someone a rain jacket that doesn’t perform properly you hear about it and rightfully so. To the best of our knowledge, most people don’t wake up for a day of fishing and think “man I can’t wait to go out there and get soaking wet right to the bone”. Just by feeling the River Salt jacket you get a sense that it is waterproof and tough.

Patagonia River Salt Jacket

This jacket is constructed using a 4-layer waterproof/breathable material known as H2No (clever name). It also has a DWR (durable waterproof repellent) finish to ensure that the water stays where it is supposed to, on the outside of the garment.

The River Salt jacket weighs 22.6 oz. The 4-layer construction may not make this jacket the lightest on the market but we would rather the jacket have a bit more weight than the weight of our shirts increasing significantly as they get waterlogged.

The heavy-duty front zip is a YKK zipper and it is waterproof and corrosion-resistant. The two breast pockets have a vertical zip with a water repellent zipper. They are sized to accommodate large fly boxes. The front left pocket has a small mesh inner pocket as well as a clip that you can attach a key ring to, ensuring that your keys remain with you for the duration of the day.

The River Salt jacket also has two fleece-lined handwarmer pockets. There is one internal pocket on the left side of the jacket. The cuffs are adjustable and are made with a non-absorbing material. This is a well thought-out, nice clean design. There are no plastic loops for synching which could break over time. The simplicity and the great functionality are the common themes with the River Salt jacket.
