Why Outerwear?


GORE-TEX® Technology and Simms Gear

Product Care

GORE-TEX® Outerwear Care:

Cleaning your GORE-TEX® garments regularly will extend the life of the product. It will also keep them breathable as dirt and oil can clog the GORE-TEX® membrane over time.

It is critical to wash jackets. Natural oils can damage the GORE-TEX® tape and adhesives causing a peeling effect.

Machine wash warm. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.

Remember to zip all pockets and close all Velcro cuffs before washing to prevent any damage caused by the machine.

Tumble dry on warm setting making sure not to use a high heat setting. Drying on warm will actually reactivate the DWR coating.



  • GORE-TEX® Performance Shell outerwear is waterproof, lightweight, durable and breathable. It’s designed to provide excellent, long-lasting performance in a wide range of conditions.

  • Little Parts from the YKK® Fastening Products Group create The Big Difference for our customers — fastening solutions intelligently integrated with the finished product to provide the highest quality, most durable gear.

great jacket Review by Gnatbagger
You did it again Simms! Great fitting jacket, completely airtight, and very comfortable. Gives lots of room with vest on for all manuevers. Many compliments on our trip just completed to Colorado. Well worth the price. Thanks again Simms!

Bang For The Buck Review by Dakota Mercer
Bang for the buck, this is absolutely the best fishing jacket available. I feel very comfortable while wearing it, and it keeps the rain off of my skin. For anybody interested in a jacket, I would automatically point them in the direction of this great jacket.

Wind & Rain Review by Arni Jonsson
This is by some distance one of the best investments I have made. In Iceland there is always wind, and most of the time when it rains, it does so horizontally. This Jacket keeps everything out! I love, love, love it!

The best jacket ever Review by Jeff
This has been the best jacket I have ever owned. I have put this jacket through the ringer, guiding in the Pacific NW, and it has preformed without flaw. Large pockets placed in just the right spots, great cuffs, I feel bullet proof in this jacket.

Chest pickets not waterproof Review by Texas coast fisherman
Loved everything about the jacket until I learned that the chest pockets are not seam taped or waterproof . Why ?

Guide jacket Review by David
Have had several high quality rain jackets over the years and continue to use and maintain some of the older traditional waxed cotton. The guide jacket is in another class. The design is so well thought out and clearly suited to fishing. The quality of construction and material is outstanding. When it comes to keeping out the rain, it does exactly what it is designed to do and as such it keeps you on the water longer.

Awesome Review by Gregory Wood
Great jacket.... price is right... I do most of my guiding in upstate N.Y. the best thing about this jacket is inside the hand pockets is an additional pocket to insert hot hands for thise wonderful snowy cold days chasing chrome....

Buy it, you'll like it! Review by Capt Clay
As a guide, products have to work for me. If it isn't functional, then it gets tossed. If you want a good investment, this is it, as it has huge pockets to carry all kinds of stuff, whether on the river chasing salmon or on the flats for bones. Have even used it for deep sea fishing, just to stay dry. Big factor is extreme durability, which interprets to money well spent. Even has velcro inside the sleeve tips so your body heat stays in and water doesn't run inside if you dunk your arm in the water and raise it up.
