Redington Wayward Guide Jacket
Where I live and work, it rains nearly every day from November through May. Sometimes I put things off just because there aren't easy alternatives. So it was with the search for a new wading jacket. I had put up with an over-expensive, leaky wading jacket for two winters. When the defective jacket was brought to the manufacturer's attention the CEO replied that maybe one of their other models would be better, so like a sucker I spent another half a grand and it leaked just as bad. Now I had two leaky jackets. Each got me through half a day. But between the two I was dry for most of a day. But both jackets had overly large hoods that obstructed my vision while rowing a boat. Once again there didn't appear to be any alternative. One day a gust of wind blew the hood over my eyes as my boat entered a particularly bad spot and we went through it with me completely blind. Fortunately we were lined up perfectly before the lights went out.
That's when I decided to cure the situation and I purchased jackets from several other brands. All the new jackets had objectionable design flaws or leaked...except for the one on this page: the Redington Wayward Guide Jacket. It doesn't have a lot of cute features. It is simple and because of that it doesn't have many places for water to get through. MB
The all new WAYWARD GUIDE JACKET is constructed using durable 3-layer waterproof/breathable fabric to withstand whatever Mother Nature throws at you. It features zippered chest pockets with fleece-lined hand warmer pockets that offer plenty of room to store your essential gear. The sleek design and standard length cut of the jacket makes for stylish performance both on and off the water. From downpour to day around town, the WAYWARD GUIDE JACKET has you covered.
