Wizard Neck Sleeve


Rain, sleet, snow. Say hello to our little friend.

More pockets. More features. More awesome.

Stepping up from the original Primo jacket with extra length, more room in the neck collar, and an upgraded main zipper and style the new Primo Rain Jacket excels at keeping you dry on those hardcore bad weather days. This full length fishing jacket is designed to be worn with wading pants, rain pants, chest waders, or just by itself. If Chuck Norris was a fishing jacket, this would be it.

With a full length design the long version of the popular Primo Wading jacket takes it up a notch with a longer overall length, bigger pockets, and new armpit zips for venting excess heat. The Primo Rain Jacket features waterproof and breathable protection from the elements with three layer DWR coated, 20,000mm waterproof rated fabric, fully taped seams and water resistant YKK zippers. The snagless cuffs adjust on the inside of the sleeve, wrapping your wrist tighter than a leather mancuff, and leaving the outside of your sleeve clean from snagging.

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy this jacket. Which is pretty much the same thing.

    Great product! I just fished the Klamath River for steelhead in low 40 degree weather in a steady rain and I was dry as a bone and the only one in my group that wasn’t complaining of being cold. I wish I would have found this jacket soon. It would have made past cold and wet days on the water much more enjoyable.

    Recently, I spent the day fishing a nearby desert river. It was low, slow, frozen at the edges, but still full of browns. A layer of insulation and my Dryft jacket and wading pants did the trick. Both garments are well constructed. They look and feel that way. I’m 6’3”, 240 and the 2XL has good proportions, especially the sleeve length, but the fit isn’t sloppy. I’ll be able to rely on this duo for lots of trips over many years.

    This Jacket is bomb proof. I’ve trekked it all around my local river the last few weeks in dumping rain, and even had it in the snow. It is extremely waterproof and provides great protection from the elements. Sizing is just about right to be able to layer up underneath it. I’ll be using it all winter for steelhead fishing and I’m stoked to be repping a PNW brand that puts this much time and effort into the design and details of their products.

    As the title states, this rain jacket is Primo! Seriously, a perfect wading jacket. Would check this over the other brands for sure!

    Great jacket, fits great, lightweight, and most importantly the best rain protection of any rain jacket I have ever owned.

    Once in a while you’ll have the opportunity to purchase a garment that fits perfect and then there’s the ones that don’t. I’ll have to say this Drift Jacket for all seasons is probably the best of a fitting jacket for any weather that I’ve ever purchased! This product is absolutely the best and I hope to enjoy the use it for years to come. 5***** ✅

    Fantastic rain jacket. Not just for fishing, but everyday rainwear. Super comfortable. Great range of motion. Now, just need Dryft to make a set of bibs to go with the Primo rain jacket. Better get to it Dryft before I have to go buy something from your competition.

    This is great jacket no worries about raining or getting cold!!!!

    I started using Dryft products about 4 years ago bought a wading set that included jacket and waders .. I have use so many other brand before but Dryft hands down the best very good for cold weather fits amazing .. I use them up in the northeast fishing for stripers From the beach so it holds up to salt no problem and they take a beating from the waves and wind and it usually very cold . I just bought the regular length jacket for the boat ..Now it’s all I’m using !!

    Best wading jacket I have ran across and it is priced reasonably. Fits true to size and has plenty of storage. Works great winter wade finishing on the Texas coast.

  13. William (verified owner)

    Fantastic jacket for colder and wet fishing! A little snug, so if you need to wear bulky layers underneath, size up. Same great quality as their waders, kept me dry with all these crazy rains we’ve been getting around here. This beast checks all the boxes for what you want in a fishing jacket, d ring for your net, articulated hood, pit vents, waterproof zippers in large pockets to fit all but the biggest fly boxes and cuffs to keep that cold dam release water from making your arms chilly when releasing fish. Y’all should think about a lightweight version for warmer weather, I’d buy at least one!

  14. Jeff Peacock

    Love this jacket. It’s not what you’ll use in the summer months, but if you’re a colder weather fisherman and/or steelheader, this is the coat, this coat checks all the boxes. Comfortable, great material, durable and practical with lots of pockets and the way the sleeves since up at the cuff and the way the hood fits is perfect.
    Highly recommend this coat!

    Ok like my other Jacket and waders I own from Dryft, These are my go to company of seriously fantastic products! You can’t beat the money you save over those other 1500 dollar waders and jacket. Dryft is a quality product that will last. How do I know? I used there waders over 170 uses last year and still no leaks. Warm breathable waders and jackets that are a quality product for a minimal price! You can’t go wrong. Thanks Dryft for making my fishing experiences great with never any worries about leaks or being cold! See my reviews on there awesome products.
