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.

The jacket was also great for keeping dry and keeping the chill off while fishing the surf.

    $220 bucks!!! That’s a lot of Hogy lures and tackle
    I hope this does not trend to being an ORVIS fisherman wherein the clothes cost as much if not more than the fishing gear used to catch fish. I know you need your sponsors and advertisers but remember there are a hell of a lot more fishermen that cannot afford this extravagance then the few that can. $220.00 = 6 years of OTW subscriptions. HMMMMMM…. decisions decisions decisions. Naw, I am going to be a lifer OTW reader.

      Bill,
      I can not tell you how many more hours I have ben able to stay out in the elements and on the fish, thanks to my STORMR suit. You can not put a price on staying warm and dry. with out the suit… well, your going to need that magazine subscription, because your going to be spending a lot of time on the couch, reading about, what were catching them on out here, in our STORMR gear.
      2 months in you will end up seeing an add for the gear and buying it anyway… common bill…

    Iv been doing a lot of searching on the tempurature range of this coat. I’ve tried it on, I like it, but im planning on using it for duck hunting. I want to know how cold this jacket can go with say a single heavy fleece underneath. Or maybe even just a t-shirt. I understand that eventually in 20* or so, more layers will be needed. I am debating to get this coat or say, a duck hunting dedicated jacket like drake or du.
