Just a pinch of salt.
With its ultra-burly, four-layer waterproof and breathable fabric, water- and corrosion-resistant front zipper, and fully adjustable hood, the Patagonia Men's River Salt Jacket is tough enough to handle full days chasing wild steelhead in the Pacific Northwest or paddling rainy rivers up in Montucky.
An adjustable storm hood allows you to buckle things down once the wind starts to rip, while an elastic drawcord at the hem prevents wind-backed rain from blowing up the coat. Mesh panels readily shed water if you happen to wade one or two steps too deep. The jacket is equipped with three zippered front pockets, giving you a place to warm your digits before you switch out flies or space to accommodate a fly box for quick access. Multiple tackle loops allow you to attach nippers and hemostats, and two internal pockets keep any valuables you want to kept warm and dry next to your body.

I had the last riversalt jacket I use it for offshore fishing I gave it 1 star all the zippers corroded. Patagonia ended up giving me a new jacket. It seems they have upgraded the zippers and fix some issues that people were having. I’ve used it 4 times in heavy seas So far so good. Patagonia is a 5 star company in my book. I had the last jacket for a few years and they traded it out with no hassle. I really like the new design. I’m 6’3 200lbs and the xtra large fits good.
