    My puffy jacket is missing. It's a Patagonia Special Edition Down Sweater, black in color, size XL (XL size is for layering underneath, you know). I suspect some flat bill wearin' whippersnapper is on a river showing off in it right now. Probably drifting a bead with an egg dropper. Damn miscreants. I want my jacket back!

    That is a serious bummer! If I lost my hooded pata sweater, I'd probably throw my slinkied beanie in the river and cry the whole way home while pedaling my fixed gear bike in my never-washed dark denim.


    Okay, I probably wouldn't cry.

    Tom Cruise could turn around 3 or 4 times in a size XL!

    Just 'cuz he prowls eastern Washington rivers looking to add to his wardrobe doesn't mean he can't afford a good tailor for adjustments!! ;)

    It's no use, you'll never find it. I was in Seattle this weekend and every third guy I saw was wearing a puffy. In fact, I commented to my wife " remember in the 70's when everyone had a puffy jacket or down coat?" Of course todays puffies are much nicer.

    Found it! It was hanging in the break room at work. Glad to have the ugly thing back.

    Should I buy a puffy jacket to keep up with the current fashion trends or become a hermit? I'm leaning toward the latter.

    GAT, according to another thread you should buy a puffy to be warm and comfortable while pursuing diverse fish species with a fly rod. As an added benefit you'll look hip and trendy, although they do tend to add a few pounds to the camera.

    I vote against hermit. That lifestyle seems to offer less fishing than I'd like.

    I don't know... they look sorta dumb to me... something like a space suit from a grade C, SciFi movie in the 60s.

    I think you're describing something like this one:

    If I was a costume designer for a Grade C sci-fi movie, I'd totally buy a bunch of puffys and put colored reflective tape on them. Instant space suit!

    I misread your thread title. On first glance I thought it said, "Miss Puffy Jacket!" I wondered who the heck that was and where you were going with it. :)

    Glad to hear you found your jacket.

    I think you just started this thread to get a rise out of everybody. And we all rose to the fly.
