Corey’s insight: 

AFTCO hit it out of the park with this rain jacket. The material is heavy-duty without being hot; the inside of the zipper is lined so it doesn’t rub on your skin; and the hood strings have material sewn over them to prevent them from pulling into the hood. The jacket will cinch around the waist and can be accessed through the pockets. I recently had the opportunity to go saltwater fishing with 10 other ladies on a day when there was a 100% chance of rain. The jacket kept me dry for the duration of the trip without being hot and stuffy. Even when our skiff was driving at top speed through a downpour, it outperformed every other ladies’ rain jacket that day.
