The AFTCO Reaper Hoodie swept the fishing world and quickly became the staple for cold weather fishing comfort, rendering traditional fishing sweatshirts obsolete. The Reaper Windproof Jacket is the next generation of technical cold weather gear in the Reaper family. This soft shell jacket still incorporates a built-in face mask and neck warmer but is now lined with AFTCO's very own Hexatron fleece material. A durable 94% polyester / 6% spandex rip-stop outer shell is fused to the Hexatron lining. This combination in a 3-layer fabric provides added comfort, warmth, and wind protection. Built with laser cut underarm ventilation and a zippered side vent.
For the angler looking for a soft shell jacket specifically for cold weather and Fall/Winter fishing, the Reaper Soft Shell Jacket is the versatile piece that checks all the boxes and more.
This is a great garment if you're looking for a windproof shell. I got the XL - the fit is roomy, but the neck area feels just right, so if you have a larger neck I'd err on the big side. I'm 6'-3"/200# for reference. It's a bit heavier duty than I expected - the pictures look a bit like a heavy sweatshirt, but it's definitely a jacket as described. The pro of no zipper in the front is the windproof factor. The con is people can't see my Mr. T neck chains. All kidding aside, this is a great jacket for long cold runs in the boat.
Reaper and Barracuda review / super nice customer service person as well
Haven't had a chance to wear it yet as Temps came up here in S FL but it looks exactly as i imagined from photos and I am so far very happy with that and the Materials used. I bought ur Barracuda UV shirt as well and it looks great and feels great too. Great customer service too as I had to speak to an actual Human when CC processing jammed up. If Taxes ever get too high in Cali, hope U move to Florida!
I wore this on a super windy day that was chilly. It kept me very warm and none of the wind penetrated it. I also got water on it that did not seep through. The facemask in the hood protected me very much and did not slip off my head. I am very pleased with my purchase.
Solid product, would be perfect with one small adjustment
Fits perfectly in the body, I’m 5’11” and 215 lbs and ordered the large. No complaints on the fit there. However the neck is super snug. It’s usable but not super comfortable. It’s not the gaiter, but the actual sizing of the neck in the product. Maybe I just have a large neck, but if you are one of those folks, something to be mindful of. I would have went up a size but then it would be loose in the body and wind would just blow up the overhang.
The Reaper Windproof Jacket is a warm jacket and blocks the wind efficiently without sacrificing comfort. You will forget you have it on. The built in neck gaiter is super comfortable and warm for the cold boat rides. I highly recommend this jacket by Aftco. Mark Sonnier - Current Outfitters LLC
At first I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend $99 on a jacket but once I got it I couldn’t believe it was only $99. This is really well made and protects against the wind and cold. Jacket is form fitting so if you want it baggy I would go a size up.
Fit is weird and jacket looked used when I received it.
This seemed like it was exactly what I was looking for. But when I opened it it was dirty around the outside collar area, the bag looked liked it was rewrapped. When I put it on the fit was off in the shoulder area, the jacket seems like the cut pattern is restricted in the shoulder and upper arm area.
I had ordered the sweatshirt several weeks before I ordered the jacket. The sweatshirt was nice fitting, and super warm, I just could not imagine that the jacket could be even better.It was warmer yet. It did keep the wind out better then the sweatshirt, as it said. (windproof) Both are very nice. I plan on using them when I am in the boat on those cold weather days, ripping up the water.
I purchased the reaper wind proof jacket for my fiancé. He got to try it out yesterday. He was out in his kayak for about 8 hours fishing and said he stayed comfortable and warm. His only complaint is the neck gator that’s attached. Said that it’s a little too tight around his neck when he isn’t using it. But overall he loved the jacket. He purchased the reaper hoodie for me for Christmas and it did not disappoint either. It’s my favorite hoodie to wear while we are fishing. Both of the reaper products are top notch and essential for any angler!
This is a fantastic product. Cuts wind and water while keeping you warm and comfortable. Also has flex to move with you. Very warm with ample room for undergarments as well. I’m 6’2 /220lbs and i wear a large comfortably.
i love this new Reaper Windproof Jacket it is warm and does block the wind very well. The only complaint I have is that the hood is too snug to put it up over my fishing caps . I have to remove them to put up the hood.
Hoodie looks and feels amazing. Ordered a medium and it's way to long for my liking, rides all the way past my butt. 5'10 145lbs. Ill be giving this hoodie to my father and possibly ordering a smaller size.
