A hydrophobic Deeter takes rain coat “field testing” to the next level—the carwash—and tells us it hurts. After that it was straight to the hot tub to test the latest innovations in women’s waders. We feel your pain, bro.
From Field & Stream: “I’ll go to any length to test gear to its limits…well, almost any length. Remember the motorcycle reel test? Well, my latest “mad scientist” folly will appear in the May issue of Field & Stream, and it involves me wearing popular fishing rain gear through a car wash to check it out. You’ll have to read the issue for the results, but it was a pretty fair test. I wore a gray sweatsuit under the rain coats and pants, endured the jet rinse (that hurts, by the way) and any soaked spots underneath earned negative points.”
