Well I ripped my favorite waterproof wading jacket and I need a new one. I have looked around at Academy and Bass Pro but haven't really found anything I liked. What are y'all using and where did you find it at? I'd like something lightweight and wind/waterproof with a drawstring or elastic bottom and a hood.

I got Gander Mountains guide series brand and like it. It was about $200 got it on sale after christmas for less. Nice jacket, has hood, no draw string but made well.

Thanks guys. Got some good ideas now. I looked at Academy for the Magellan jacket but did not see it anywhere. Where did y'all buy them?

Not all of the Academys have them for some reason. I have seen them in some of the stores. I got mine last year on clearance for $20.

They tend to hang them mixed in with other jackets, so they can be hard to find. I'd ask!;)
I got one when my Simms was in for repairs. It's a good jacket for the price.

They did not have the Magellen at Academy at grand parkway and I-10. They said they don't carry it, only the mag2 waders. So I got the H20 Express for $69.99. It has the neoprene cuffs. Just picked it up today.

Howdy Folks,

Just got back from the Pasadena Academy and they had the Magellans there. About 5 khaki and 4 olive in various sizes from medium to XL. They are going for $59.99, are very well made and a great buy for the price.
