Sometimes a product comes along that makes you stop and pause. To this day I am still hopeful that Dri-Core will make a comeback although I am not holding my breath. But there is something new out there, from people I have tremendous respect for. Henderson makes wetsuits we all want to have. They are synonymous with quality and innovation
But wait, what does this have to do with jackets? I am glad you asked. Henderson just debuted a StormR Typhoon jacket. I haven’t got my hand on one…yet. In fact one of you will before I do :-)…..but just reading the description below from Saltwater Edge site makes me drool. Wetsuit for land??? Nice description.
So when folks from Saltwater Edge in RI aka Edge Angling (http://www.edgeangling.com) and Henderson offered Surfcaster’s Journal Blog readers a chance to win one, we were very pleased. I will always have a soft spot for crew at Saltwater Edge. They have supported me from a day one when I wrote my first book and trough the years have been a great friends. Today they support SJ via Red Gill you see in the magazine. Truly a first class operation, from top to bottom, and wonderful people I am honored to call friends.
So what is the deal?
Saltwater Edge is making this possible, for one of you lucky dogs to win a new Henderson StormR Typhoon Jacket in your choice of size and color!!!

ABOUT THE STORMR TYPHOON
The STORMR® TYPHOON is an adaptation of the wetsuit for land. Its Neoprene Core Technology provides huge thermal benefits in a thin, soft, flexible, windproof and waterproof shell. The STORMR® TYPHOON is made to withstand the harshest of elements while providing comfort and maneuverability unlike most foul weather gear
The STORMR TYPHOON is lined with a soft, comfortable micro-fleece material which traps warm air between your body and the shell. All seams on the STORMR® TYPHOON are glued, stitched and then coated with an exterior liquid tape, just like wetsuits for surfing and diving. This construction, although significantly more complicated than construction techniques employed on common outerwear, ensures the STORMR remains waterproof and windproof even in high winds, driving rain and freezing precipitation.
The hazards involved in aquatic activities are real and when the temperatures drop, one mistake can prove to be life-threatening. The STORMR® TYPHOON is a not a Coast Guard approved flotation device but its Neoprene Core Technology offers nearly 5 pounds of positive buoyancy. The STORMR® TYPHOON’s warmth, comfort and safety features give you the edge you need to DEFY THE ELEMENTS.
The zipper on the STORMR is also waterproof and is covered with an exterior storm flap to ensure waterproof integrity.
The non-corrosive metal zipper slider ensures years of use in the most brutal conditions.
Interior zippered pocket is spacious for keeping personal items safe and secure.
The attached hood is easily adjusted for a perfect fit and can be worn over other hats or head gear, alone or not at all.
Wrists are adjustable for use over gloves and layering.
Zippered outer front pockets are perfect for keeping hands warm on chilly days, or storing personal items securely.
The STORMR provides a full, relaxed fit with plenty of room for layering, allowing you to perfectly achieve your thermal balance.
Like I said, you lucky dogs 🙂
