Product Description

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 with headphone port, 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.

Nothing cheap about this design; mastery in Producing it.

Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

This product will stay crisp and pristine in color and appearance under heavy use in harsh weather swings. Would have paid more for another brand; however when I found out who produced it I said why spend more money West Marine relied on a superior co. to manufacture there own product: and thats why I buy there in house brands and thats exceptional.

Jacket blocks wind well, untested in wet weather

By Hurley's next adventure

from Atlanta, GA

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Blocks wind
  • high collar to block wind
  • velcro holds extra flaps over zipper

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Coastal cruising
    • lake sailing

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    Have the bright red version of the jacket. The large side pockets are handy for holding anything you can imagine stuffing in them with a large close flap held down with velcro. Instantly putting on the jacket over other layers blocked the wind.

    Third Reef Jacket - Great Buy

    By Marneman

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    This is a great jacket. It moves well, so I don't feel constrained while wearing it. Really love the interior cuffs...keeps water out, but still gives me an outer cuff that fits more loosely. Very happy with the purchase.

    Nice jacket, affordable; could be better

    By Pete

    from Seattle, WA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens Third Reef Jacket:

    Great hood. Too much Velcro... Hard to manage an open unzipped jacket because of the Velcro, sticking to the wrong thing. Easier to put button/snaps. Cuff on sleeve too cold/abrasive

    Service and delivery comments:

    Picked up product at store. Excellent customer service at Bellevue, WA location.
