Backeddy Jacket

The Backeddy Softshell Jacket gives you all the warmth and wind-cutting comfort you expect from a softshell with added water resistance. If you absolutely had to pick one fishing jacket, this would be it—burly protection, with a soft side.

In a world of specialized fly fishing jackets—hard-shells, softshells, pack-shells, wind-shells—the Backeddy is one shell that does it all. This 3-layer, laminated, grid-fleece lined jacket spans the chasm between soft-shell and hard-shell. It insulates, breathes, stretches, and cuts wind like a softshell. But with an abrasion and water-resistant outer fabric and critically-taped seams, it handles abuse and sheds water as well. Built for anglers looking for one fishing jacket to perform across a range of weather conditions and temperatures, the Backeddy will keep you comfortable no matter what you find out there.

Essential gear; exceptional quality.

We build the Backeddy Collection to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable across a range of fishing conditions and seasons. If you’re looking for a single apparel system that offers consistent performance in varied weather, this is it. Essential gear systems usually come with caveats: compromised durability, performance, or both. Our Backeddy Collection delivers Skwala-level quality in a simple kit that covers most fishing situations. Whether you’re gearing up for an annual trip or want to upgrade your weekend angling staples, the Backeddy Collection gives you everything you need with superior design, comfort, performance, and versatility. 

Some Call It Soft; We Call It Badass 

We paired a windproof, breathable, microporous laminate, 4-way stretch woven shell with a gridded fleece interior to create a softshell jacket that can handle all the elements you deal with on the water: wind, rain, snow, and fluctuating temperatures. Then, we also added the same waterproof seam tape we use in our hardshell jackets to keep you dry in everything but the heaviest downpour.
