The William and Joseph Tech jacket stuffs under the boat seat and fits in the back of your vest. The Tech Jacket offers waterproof breath-ability for under $60. William and Joseph has produced two or three versions of this lightweight packable jacket. The 2008-2009 model is by far the best yet. The jacket packs down smaller than a football and weighs 5 ounces, it has taped seems, two chest pockets, two side/hand pockets and a hood.
The Tech Jacket is not the coat you take to Alaska or B.C when you need a bomb proof, heavy duty rain jacket. But it’s size, weight and “waterproofness” make it a great coat for your fishing bag or vest. You may run into the odd squall spring or fall when fishing your favorite local water and this coat could save the day. If you are travelling to warmer climates this jacket serves to block wind on the boat ride out to the fishing grounds or flat out keep you dry in a rain shower. For $60 the William and Joseph Tech jacket is well worth owning.
