This jacket is great in the features listed: Tough- 4 layers, waterproof, lots of pockets, good color (earth), the wrists are covered well, and blocks the wind. Dislikes: yes the hood is huge but on the upside you can wear a winter hat and baseball cap no problem under it. The armpits are a little tight. Casting or rowing all day they need to be bigger. When the hood is rolled up it is like wearing a neck guard in football. Add some ziggers to the jacket and a sole patch for some flies, decrease the hood size and make the arm pit area bigger.
