jacket recommendation

Hope everyone enjoyed their summer, the overnight temps have been fantastic and hopefully we'll be good to go soon. on that note, i am going to do some scouting hikes, anyone been out that has measured any surface temps?

main reason for the post is i want to invest in a good jacket for pond fishing this fall. there's a million of them and i have a few in mind but looking for anyone that has had a good experience with one. warm, windproof, let me know

g I have a Simms Acklins that I got on closeout last year. I really like it and it's made specifically for fishing with a d-ring for a net and a nice chest pocket. I put it through it's paces this Spring and it kept me warm and dry during rain, sleet, and even some flurries. It didn't help me when I fell of my float tube but that's another story

As far as the surface temperatures go I have been fishing the last few days just South of the Adk Park line. The lake surface temp is 73 degrees and it's dropped 2 degrees in the last few days. I haven't been fishing for trout yet but will do so once the temps fall below 70.

I scouted a few ponds a month ago in the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness and their surface temps were 75 degrees. I'm guessing they are close to 70 now as they are typically about 5 degrees colder than my local lake. I would guess that some ponds farther North and higher in elevation are sub 70 by now or real close.

I did some scout paddling this weekend on a 2000' elevation pond, surface temps were 64-66. Looks promising for the fall brookies.

On the jacket front I've owned one of everything and nothing has stayed waterproof for more than two years. See this thread:

http://www.adkforum.com/showthread.php?t=20189

My conclusion: DWR is a hoax.

My latest experiment is Columbia's Outdry Titanium. Working so far is all I'll say.

I've had the Patagonia River salt 3-1 for about 2 seasons now. Moisture seems to permeate in heavy rain. It wasnt cheap either.
