Had the heavy version 3 years ago, lasted 6months if that, seams started to go, pure rubbish and no side pockets to keep hands....they might be better now..
Went and got the bass boats smock and never looked back, have it over 2 years now and never let in a drop of water, and it gets used for bait digging and all, best money i ever spent...

I have the Vass heavy duty smock . . Never leaks. Best jacket I've had and I've been out in some orrid weather . Only downside is no side pockets. Just a big pouch on the front
