I’m always on the hunt for the perfect foul weather boating jacket and I think I may have just found it: Stormr Typhoon Jacket. A favorite of Northeast commercial crabbers are serious striper anglers and surfcasters, the Typhoon, I can say from experience, is equally at home along the Pacific coast.
Neoprene Core Technology
At the heart of the Typhoon jacket is what STORMR calls “Neoprene Core Technology,” which features a super thin layer of neoprene that is sandwiched between moisture-wicking fleece and a durable nylon outer shell that is coated with an extra water repellant shell (all layers are 4-way stretch). The result of which is a coat that is waterproof, windproof and also has positive buoyancy…which will help you, rather than drag you down, should you go into the water.
At first glance, you can tell by the burly zippers, heavily taped seams and waterproofing that this jacket is bulletproof!
