Weather Gear 2018: New Rainsuits, Hoodies, Footwear

Most hard-core anglers already know this. There's more to staying warm and dry in adverse weather conditions than what many rain gear options offer.

After all, a leaky rainsuit is no fun in a steady rain.

Here's a look at new fishing gear that will keep you warm and dry
