January rain slapping my face in Alaskan winds.
I’m in a full jog.
A Kodiak bear, 150 yards back on the other side of Karluk River, is following at the same effort.
My seaplane’s 300 yards upstream.
My guide (and pilot), jogging next to me, drops his fishing gear and bursts to a sprint. I do the same, as does the bear now crossing toward us.
It’s about this time I take stock of this jacket.
It’s lightweight but has a warm fleece backing. Soft shell exterior stretches naturally as I run, yet is double-layered to protect against this vicious rain. Zip pockets keep my fishing flies dry. Velcro closure cuffs. Band collar. Eyelet mesh vents under my arms. It’s almost equipment.
And, stylish. Yes, I will wear it to dinner tonight.
