Don’t Get Soaked: Finding the Right Jacket
Protect yourself from the elements this summer!
It's that time of year. Whether you're headed up to north to Alaska, Kamchatka or you're fishing in the Rocky Mountains, it's best to be prepared for everything that Mother Nature will throw at you over the course of the day. With that in mind, we wanted to run through a selection of SIMMS outerwear that will have you covered when the rubber meets the road and the elements make their presence felt.
The SIMMS Guide Jacket has been a staple in the SIMMS outerwear line and for good reason. Designed for long days in mixed weather, the three layer Gore-Tex shell is waterproof, breathable, lightweight, and super durable. With two top-loading, fly-box compatible storage pockets, the Guide Jacket has more than enough room for a night of fishing under the sun in "balmy" Alaska.
With best in class, breathable, waterproof protection, the SIMMS Challenger Jacket features 2-layer Toray® fabric with fully taped seams for 100-percent waterproof, breathable performance. Revive cold hands in fleece-lined pockets and dodge hard rain by ducking inside a 3-point adjustable storm hood that conveniently stows in the collar. Perfect for your next trip to find steelhead in the rainforest of the OP.
If you're looking for the ultimate in Gore-Tex rain and wind protection, the SIMMS ProDry Gore-Tex Jacket is the jacket you need. We can think of no better jacket for chasing rainbows with flesh flies or wrangling King Salmon during an Alaskan summer rain.
It might be summer in the Front Range, but we all know too well that temperatures up in the high country can dip a little lower, especially when the sun sets in the west. Perhaps the best value in SIMMS outerwear line, the Rogue Fleece Hoody is perfect for nights around the campfire or at your favorite mountain town, "locals only", watering hole.
The Simms Waypoints Jacket is the ideal pack and play rain jacket for those afternoon thunderstorms that roll through in the summer. Lightweight, breathable, and very packable, the Waypoints is a must on any summer day trip to the water. It even packs into it's into itself for convenient storage in it's left-hand pocket.
