The Rivers West Pioneer Jacket is a 100% waterproof and windproof fleece jacket designed for outdoors activities in the wind and rain. This jacket utilizes the soft quiet exterior material that made Rivers West a household name within fishing and hunting circles. Hunters have become especially fond of this feature as it maintains their stealth when moving through the woods -
something most raingear simply cannot do. As we all know, typical rain jackets and pants make that squeaking squishing sound caused by the friction of the material against itself - not the Pioneer Jacket. In addition to this quality, the Pioneer Jacket possesses a lot of desirable qualities. This jacket is extremely packable; its a very light, thin and stretchy fabric that condenses down to the size of a 2 liter bottle when packed. The jacket is fully lined with a special material which is designed to cool the wearer down making it an excellent choice when you're layered up to the max. The jacket uses a full length front zipper which extends all the way to the chin and is completely covered by a button down storm flap. Comfortable, elastic cuffs conform to the wrist to minimize water entry, but isn't so tight as to feel restricting. A fixed hood with visor adds another source of protection from the rain and can be adjusted to offer a snug fit. Two large, zippered side pockets offer a great deal of storage or serve as excellent handwarmers. The Pioneer jacket can be adjusted around the bottom hem for those times a snugger fit is preferred - maybe a heavier wind or cooler temperatures. Ventilation is largely achieved through the breathable fabric, however, additional air flow is possible by simply snapping down the storm flap closure without zipping up the jacket.
