Simms® Design Team Focuses On Fly Fishing Outerwear Technology
Fly Fishing Outerwear- The Simms Outerwear line will receive a complete makeover for 2004. Simms will take fly-fishing protective outerwear to a new level with the introduction of 6 new jackets and a new rain pant. All of the new products incorporate anatomical and casting/layering fit to allow for a full range of motion. Features include advanced fabric, zipper, zipper pull and design technologies.
The G3 Guide™ Jacket is the most technical of the rain jackets offered by Simms featuring Gore-Tex® XCR® 3-layer fabric. The dual fabric design offers a heavier 100% nylon face fabric in the high-wear areas. The lighter fabric in the body allows for superior breathability and greater packability. The jacket includes four zippered chest pockets featuring YKK® thermolaminated water-resistant zippers with anti-corrosion sliders. The centerfront zipper is a waterproof Riri® Storm™ developed specifically for people who go to the sea, the mountains or anything involving water and chosen because of its resistance to sun, wind, water and salty environments. All components of this highly advanced zipper have passed severe testing. Other design features include bellowed chest pockets and a horizontal zip back pocket. The unique cuff allows for maximum protection from water entry.
The G3 Guide Jacket is offered in Dark Loden in sizes S – XXL. Sug. Ret. $399.95.
A standard in the Simms rain wear line, the Classic Guide Jacket utilizes Gore-Tex® 3-layer fabric with a 100% polyester face. This combination offers superior waterproof/breathable performance with a soft hand and fantastic water repellency. Built-in retractors, large hand warmer & fly box pockets and a back pocket offer sufficient storage for long days of fishing.
Simms’ Classic Guide Jacket is offered in Forest in sizes S – 4XL. Sug. Ret. $299.95 (not including 3XL & 4XL).
The new PacLite® fabric used in the PacLite® Pullover and Rain Pant offers excellent waterproof/breathable protection from the elements with increased durability while maintaining the lightweight packability recognized in the earlier versions of PacLite® fabric technology. The Pullover is longer than a standard fishing jacket which provides great protection on boats. The ¾ length waterproof centerfront zipper assures quick access when rain is looming. The Rain Pant features waterproof full-length leg zips for easy-on, easy-off over sandals or wading shoes. The design and fit of the Pullover and Rain Pants accommodate clothing and ease of movement. Both products feature a self-contained stuff pouch for convenient storage.

The Freestone Jacket is offered in S – XXL in Slate. Sug. Ret. $199.95.

The face fabric includes a water-repellent finish to minimize water absorption and the lightweight fabric package provides a lightweight garment for windy conditions.
