It was hard to improve on our perennially best-selling coastal jacket, but our seventh-generation model delivers an improved fabric that is even more waterproof, yet doesn’t sacrifice its outstanding breathability or lightweight comfort. This jacket makes the perfect choice for weekend trips in moderate conditions with its fully lined, fully seam sealed, breathable, 100% water and windproof Oxford nylon outer shell with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish. The articulated hood pod and brushed mesh collar have been improved by adding extra room so when the collar is fully zipped it will allow for the additional bulk of mid layers. Hi-vis, foldaway hood features volume adjuster and one-handed aperture adjusters. Internal layering loops at neck and cuffs. Other additions include cargo pockets that are now angled for easier access, super soft handwarmer pockets are located behind the cargo pockets without zippers for easier use, plus zippered handwarmer pockets have been added at the upper chest to make access easy while wearing a PFD. Internal zip pocket, adjustable cuffs, internal Dartex storm cuff, two-way storm flap with drainage channel, two-way non-corrosive center front zipper and adjustable waist with internal shock cord adjusters. Imported.

I've had my Third Reef jacket and bibs for several years now and have used them several times for short duration events like showers and thunderstorms. If I have a complaint its that they are a bit heavy/warm for a summer squall on the Chesapeake, however that was a choice I made towards more comfort when the temps dropped. That paid off when I recently endured a 15 hour overnight passage in cold rain and spray and remained dry and comfortable through out the night.

I don't know how these foulies would stand up to multiple days of constant rain, spray but for what I paid and for my use I've very happy with my Third Reef Foulies.

A must have for a TowBoatU.S. Captain

By Capt. Grant

from Oneida Lake, NY

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Hand Warmer Pockets
  • High Collar
  • High Visability
  • Reflective Material

Cons

    Best Uses

    • High Winds
    • Rainy days

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    Excellent Visibility if you were ever to fall overboard and needed to be rescued, the fluorescent-green colored hood along with reflective material is a must have in those situations for SAR personnel to locate you. I've had this coat about a month now and have worn it on numerous occasions this fall on the rainy/windy days and it has delivered me home dry and with no chill in my bones. Hopefully it will give me 5 years of the same!

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    I wore it just the next day just offshore in a 24' fishing boat. Kinda rough weather with spray over the bow. It kept me dry and comfortable. Not hot but not cold.

    Best Darn Rain Jacket Ever!!

    By Tide-Dancer

    from Carrabelle Beach, Florida

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Since I purchased this jacket it has not rained

    Cons

    • None

    Best Uses

    • Taking up space in my boat

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    Well what can I say after all that. Buy a premium rain jacket and the rain stops. But we have TP #9 breathing down our throat right now and I can see this new purchase coming in handy in the next few days.

    Caution with sizing

    By Thistle537

    from Indianapolis

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    My new "large" is slightly smaller than my ten year old WM 3rd Reef jacket. We purchased a replacement 3rd Reef for my wife and had the same experience.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Quick delivery.

    No hypothermia here!

    By 25yearslater

    from Rochester, NY/ Lake Ontario

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Keeps core temperature up during spring sailing.

    Cons

    • Higher collar somewhat restrictive.

    Best Uses

    • Early spring sailing Lake Ontario.

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    Bought four sets of bibs and jackets 3 years ago. So far no problems. Sailing Lake Ontario in early spring is inviting problems if not warm and dry. Crew and guests find them comfortable and are amazed at their ability to stop wind chills and keep them dry. With hypothermia a constant threat the gear has to perform in function every time. These do it. With temperature in the low forties and wind chills in the twenties as well as spray it doesn't make sense risk substandard equipment. Couple this with a reasonable price and there are no excuses for missing months of extra sailing considering the season is short enough.
