The hoodie might be the quintessential top for fishing. Stormr’s hoodie might be the ultimate. Its benefits go far beyond any other, the company says. Some of the reasons hoodies work well for fishing are that they’re oversized, fitting over other garments, and comfortable, including warm. But the Stormr Swell Hoodie features a neoprene exterior. That sheds water and is entirely windproof, unlike the usual sweatshirt hoodie. The Swell is oversized to fit over layers and is warm, retaining body heat. The hoodie has a fleece lining. It features two large front pockets, a cinch cord around the waist and a front zip. You’re fishing. Weather’s chilly, windy. Threatening rain. The ocean is spraying. But you can concentrate on the task, because you’re comfortable.

These include gloves, a warm hat, waders or hip boots, wading boots for stocking-foot waders, spikes if you fish the rocks and a jacket of some sort. The requirements of a jacket for surfcasting are many, and each individual angler has his or her own set of must-haves that they look for. Some prefer tight gaskets on the cuffs while others are fine with a loose-fitting neoprene cuff. Others look for a large storage pocket while others require a breathable material—the list goes on and on. Like many other surfcasting tools, if you ask ten anglers what they look for in a jacket you are likely to get ten (if not 11) different answers.

CUSTOMER PRODUCT REVIEW By Reel Tight Sportfishing SOURCE
I have tried everything from Cabelas, Grudens, Mustang, and Guy Cotton. We fish year round in the cold and rainy seasons and have always used the 3 layer science. 3 layers Base to remove moisture from sweat, insulation layer/windproof layer(windproof fleece), and then shell layer, to battle water elements. The science is then to trap 3 layers of air in between these clothes, your body will heat the trapped air to body temp. and this is what keeps you warm in harsh climate. You would be very surprised to see the minimal amount of clothing necessary when wearing the typhoon jacket to survive in harsh climate. I have used as little as a long sleeve t-shirt to as much as a fleece in low 30’s temps with cold seas spraying down on you. This jacket has been amazing not only on the water but during many of those rainy and snowy days in the northeast.

The Stormr beanie is by far the best out there for anglers wanting to keep their head warm and dry. Also, it holds on well when going 75mph which is a big plus.

CUSTOMER PRODUCT REVIEW BY: Matt
The words “weather permitting” no longer apply. Stormr has changed the way I look at the weather channel. Rain, snow, or winds have nothing on this jacket. I own the jacket and the bibs, and there is nothing on the market that compares. I have a Mustang suit, a Fribill suit and Bass Pro 100mph gear. Each one of these suits has been replaced by my Stormr suit. When your warm and dry, you can focus on what’s important… fishing!

I’m going to set myself for ridicule by saying that I’m a lifetime resident of New York, but I’ve probably only fished Champlain about 10 times. Now before you pummel me with stones, understand that I’m about 4 hours away from Ticonderoga and that Plattsburgh is an hour further. The fact that I’m less than two hours from Cayuga, Oneida, Ontario, St. Lawrence River, and only 3 hours from Lake Erie, should help explain a bit why I haven’t made the trip more often. However, I recently learned that the water temp there was in the middle to upper 50s last week, which would put it about 10-15 degrees ahead of my more traditional fishing spots in Central New York, and means that prespawn jerkbait bite should be HOT. So we packed up the boat, and headed up.

CUSTOMER PRODUCT REVIEW By Bobby SOURCE
I will start off with the negatives about this jacket. I have always had a hard time finding clothes that fit, especially jackets, I am roughly 160lbs, 2% body fat, 5’11, with a wingspan of 6’4 and about an average torso length. I saw that one review claimed that the individual had a large wingspan and the length of the sleeves fit him, sadly I did not have the same experience, I bought 2 of these jackets and both of the sleeves were about an inch to short (one was slightly less). Along with the short sleeves came a shorter torso, it was again roughly an inch or two shorter then comfortable. That being said the jacket did not look strange, it just allowed air to flow when I moved specific ways. The torso of the jacket was also huge, I mean probably 1.5x me could fit into it (a size small). That all being said this is the best jacket I have ever worn, hands down.
I have tested it by biking around in well below freezing temperatures (18 degrees) and kept it on in a home that was in the highs of 70 degrees and it felt about the same. The wide torso stores air in it and creates a barrier of comfortably warm air in it to keep you a good temperature. It is completely water/wind proof, biking in the windy rainy weather is nothing, I felt like i was sitting at home next to the fire in a t-shirt, the only times I felt a breeze was when the sleeves/torso would come up for a moment but the cold air quickly (within 5 seconds) achieved the comfortable temperature matching the air barrier already in the coat. I have sprayed it with water and it beads off quicker then you can pour it on and though I have not been in a downpour the pacific northwest has thrown some pretty rainy weather at me and it did not even phase the coat. The zippers are super heavy duty and moderately smooth and the hood is nice due to the adjustable storm hood that allows you to form it to your head. The fleece interior or extremely comfortable as well as the exterior, so much so that my girlfriend uses it as a pillow occasionally. Also it wicks away moisture quicker than you can sweat, it was the strangest feeling when I was testing it and making myself sweat, but I could not feel any sweat when I reached into it seconds later.
Overall this jacket is brilliant, I have extremely high expectations for jackets and my only complaints would be the sleeve/torso length and that it did not have Velcro straps on the sleeves. If you want an incredibly durable jacket that will stand up to harsh climates–look no further. I plan on buying a lot more of their products in the future and would recommend this to anyone.

CUSTOMER PRODUCT REVIEW By Big J SOURCE
I like this jacket for a colder weather jacket it seems to run a little larger than the Stryker jacket so you have some extra room to throw an extra sweatshirt under it. Put it this way I wore this jacket this past February in 10-20* weather with stiff 20-30 mile per hour wind and I was the only one toasty warm while we were ice fishing in Maine!
