I own a longer cabela's $100 rain jacket and a G3. Both work fine. I've had a couple Simms jackets and the only reason I got rid of them was I grew out of them. Too many beers not enough hiking. I'd say as long as a jacket is comfortable and keeps you fishing when it's raining that's all you need. There is nothing worse than having a jacket fail 3 miles into an 8 mile float on a rainy day.
