Ultimate Jacket E-mail

Fishin  copy The folks at Refrigiware provided me an Arctic Duck jacket last fall for review.  Problem was, the darn thing is so warm, I had to wait a few months before it got cold enough for me to wear it!

Even in Santa Cruz California it eventually gets cold though.  When nighttime temps dropped down to the 20’s in December I started using the Arctic Duck for my favorite wintertime fishing- surfcasting for perch. As long as my upper body is warm, I can surfcast in shorts all winter.  If the upper body gets cold, then all bets are off!

I’m more than pleased with the look, fit and performance of this jacket. Love the hood and the Sherpa lining.  Pockets are all where they are supposed to be and this style is long enough to cover my vulnerable and expanding beltline. I use this jacket with just a t-shirt beneath.  Plenty toasty even waiting for sunrise on the chilly beaches of Monterey Bay. You can tell a lot about the quality of a jacket just by the zipper. The Arctic Duck has a heavy-duty brass zip that projects quality and endurance for long-term use. While this jacket would be appropriate for Ice Road Truckers, it works just great on early-morning beaches, and also is a good snugly when I’m watching NetFlix late at night.  Contact Refrigiware directly or find a local retailer www.refrigiwear.com.
