are the cuffs just elastic like a windbreaker?

Yeah exactly. It doesn’t seal at the wrist, which I prefer for how I’ll be using it.

Ouch. How is that pouch sealed/drained? I wouldn't want that and the hoodie pocket full of water 

 

I have the cheap helly Hansen anorak (Roan?) which is a nice light option

I bet their pictures of nice fish on IG are as fake and misleading as their surf top.

 

Surfcasting success and authenticity cannot be achieved when money and attention is the main motivator.

The pouch is sort of misleading from the photo. That section has openings on the side where you can put your hand in. The actual pocket has (what seems to be) a water tight zipper concealed under the flap. That area is maybe six inches deep. It’s much smaller than it would appear from the outside. I don’t see water getting in there easily between the flap and the zipper.

No comment on their IG presence but I know as an acquaintance one of the people associated with their crew and at the very least the person I know grinds for their fish. Works very hard, is out every night, and very humble.

I have fished with Pete and he is a good guy and hardcore surfcaster who is well connected with other great surfcasters, just wanted to leave that in this thread

To be clear-I  believe that Pete and the rest of the Comanche guys are great fisherman who catch big fish.   I just thought the contrast between the two photos was funny.

Getting back to surf tops, my favorite lightweight top of all time-that I still use to this day- was the one made (or at least branded/marketed) by Lamiglas.   Wish they still made it so I could get another when mine eventually gives out.
