Windproof and Warm: the Frabill FXE Fleece Fishing Jacket
By Jose Chavez

The cold wind need not feel so cutting. Frabill’s FXE windproof fleece is built to meet the demands of anglers fishing in harsh winter conditions. The FXE packs enough warmth to work as a stand-alone piece of outerwear in milder winter climates. The sleeve cuffs are made of waterproof material. You’re arm will get wet, but this fleece won’t soak in the water. The rain-shedding waterproof fabric extends to the shoulders, elbows and hem.

The extended collar keeps the crisp winter winds off your neck, and vents under the armpits can be opened or closed to manage your personal microclimate. Zippered chest pockets are handy places to stash gear or cold hands. There’s even an internal lycra stretch pocket for sunglasses or other items. I use it to safely stash my phone. $130; frabill.com.
