I tried the Hardwater bibs and jacket but the XL jacket was too big and the L was too small. I kept the Hardwater bibs and I love them. I ended up going with a Predator jacket because it fit better. There is a difference in sizes between the Predator and the Hardwater series. The jacket is only OK to me, it doesn't seem to fit me well and I keep getting quite a bit of air down the back of my neck if I don't have the hood up. On the back of my Predator jacket, there is an adjustable air vent and on windy days with the vent closed, this air vent lets through air and my back gets cold when fishing outside. There were a couple of windy days that I chose my Carhartt jacket over the Predator jacket just because of the wind coming through the air vent. I love the Hardwater bibs but I will probably see if I can find a different jacket next year.
