Redington Cascade Hoodie Review

Category Clothing, Clothing


When I go fishing there are two items I always have: a trusty hat and a good hoodie. What do you do, though, when it’s 75 degrees out, too hot for most layers? Enter the Redington Cascade Hoodie.

Here’s the breakdown:

Made of 100% polyester, it is fast wicking, quick drying, and breathable. Because of this it is comfortable on both hot summer days and cool wet days. With UPF 30+ protection and a large hood, it provides great protection from the sun and wind. The thumb holes in the sleeves make layering a cinch, and help out with the cold and sun exposure to your hands. With two zippered hand pockets, and a zippered pocket on the sleeve, there is always a safe place for drivers license, money, car key etc. Unlike most poly layers this one is treated with an anti-microbial treatment to keep the stink off, allowing you to wear it for extended periods of time.

Whether I am chasing summer steelhead in the early morning, stalking carp on the Willamette or layering up for winter steelhead on the coast, this hoodie is in the game. It is light enough and protective on hot days and warm enough on those crisp fall mornings. It’s not itchy like some polyester layers and is easily packable when you want to travel light. It looks stylish and is available in three colors: Yew Green, Black and Indigo.

The conclusion:

The Cascade Hoodie is a great choice for the multisport enthusiast. I have been extremely pleased with the hoodie’s performance and would dare say it is my favorite layer! Spending many days a year on the river, in different weather conditions, I know a good layer when I see one. It is so good I own three of them and you will rarely catch me without one in reach. This hoodie truly is a champ! At $69.95 it is affordable and versatile, I highly recommend adding it to your arsenal of comfy fishing hoodies, you’ll be very happy you did.
