Field Test Favorites: StormR Typhoon Jacket
My first fishing experience with the StormR Typhoon jacket was in some late February freezing rain. I hadn’t been fishing in weeks, and with the day off, I was going to find something to catch, come hell or high, freezing, water. Over a couple layers, I put on the StormR Typhoon Jacket. I’d been impressed by the neoprene jacket’s flexibility when I first tried it on at the Atlantic City Boat Show. The jacket is comfortable and allows complete freedom of movement. Out in the February weather, the jacket was equally impressive. It shielded me against the wetness and the cold, and helped me stay out long enough to land a couple largemouth bass and get my winter fishing fix.
I used the jacket on almost every cold or wet trip right through June. It was an especially good surfcasting top. The tough neoprene withstood the abuse dished out by the surf. I even used it on windy, cold nights while wetsuiting, and other than a little eel slime here and there, the StormR Typhoon is no worse for wear. This is a great fishing jacket. For one that is even better suited to surfcasting, check out the StormR Strykr Jacket.
