Riverworks X Series Wading Jacket – Let’s Sum It Up

This jacket is one serious piece of kit – it looks the part, and performs completely. Hiking and wading hours on end whether it’s New Zealand’s backcountry or Australia’s high country streams, inclement weather is always a challenge, but it’s never going to be an obstacle.


Made with 3 layer HydrafuseTM PacTough fabric, this is the lightest 100% waterproof wading jacket available. It only weighs 670g! Seam sealed HydrafuseTM fabric repels water keeping you dry, and is unbelievably comfortable being totally breathable. So countless hours walking, wading and casting, working up a sweat, you won’t find you feel like you need to take your jacket off and then put it on again (because it’s still raining…but you’re feeling so damn hot!) If you need some extra air flow there’s ‘heat-dump’ armpit zips, and also hand warmers – perfect for helping get your blood flowing to your fingertips again when it’s freezing cold, and you can’t feel the line between your fingers to tie on that fly!


Waist level design allows restriction free movement across your body and a little extra depth wading, whilst the fully adjustable TunnelTech hood can be cinched around your face and at the nape of your neck – there’s also an inbuilt visor so your head stays dry, without limiting your movement or impairing your vision when checking your back cast. Your sleeves will also stay dry with internal concealed cuffs, adjustable and sealed with Velcro tabs.

There’s dual D-rings on the front of the jacket positioned perfectly on your chest for quick access to your integral accessories like your nippers, and a perfect place to secure your net on the larger D-ring placed thoughtfully on your back between your shoulders. Even more storage space is found in the large, vertical zipped pocket on the back, internal zipped pocket on the inside, and on your front with 2 ample sized chest pockets – perfect for your fly boxes because the YKK zips are weather tight. Oh, there’s also a nifty fly patch and rod holder.

This is essential fly fishing gear - it will keep you dry all day - so you can explore further and fish longer.
