Best Carp Fishing jacket 2021

If you're serious about carp angling, you won't only be out on the bank during the warm summer months. If you're in the UK, you'll probably find yourself fishing in somewhat chilly conditions more regularly than you would like.

With this in mind, find a good jacket that allows you to be warm and comfortable when fishing is a key step.

As with most carp gear, there are so many jackets on the market that it is difficult to make a choice on which jacket to buy. In this article, I wanted to make your decision quicker and easier by listing what I feel are a few of the best carp fishing jackets available as well as their main features, pros and cons.

Lightweight design


No added insulation so is only intended for use as a waterproof jacket.

This jacket is a well made jacket and for the price seems a good buy.

Waterproof and windproof materials mean you should stay dry whilst keeping out any wind, a bonus  whilst on the bank.

Boasting several pockets, on the chest, sleeves and at the rear, giving you plenty of storage for those items you always need to hand.

With a windproof hood wear resistant and anti tear material coupled with a warm fleece lining this appears to be an ideal jacket for the bank.
