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® PRO SHELL outerwear is waterproof, exceptionally lightweight and offers the ultimate in breathability, durability and extended comfort. Constructed with a woven backer, GORE-TEX® Pro Shell garments slide easily over other layers and offer exceptional tear strength and internal abrasion-resistance.

  • The AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper is a revolutionary new design from the global leader in containment closures. The AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper's new tooth design provides enhanced fluid repellency vs. coil or standard individual element closures, while increasing the number of design and color options for your application.

Good jacket, one issue Review by Ian
The jacket is great. I don't doubt that it does everything it is advertised to do. The pit zips are nice, especially if you keep both zippers at the bottom of the zipper - it is mildly uncomfortable to keep them up under your armpits.

My only issue is the sizing. I'm 6'3 220 (and don't necessarily have the body of an NFL linebacker with the same height and weight) , so I ordered an XL and noticed that I have so much extra room around my waist/midsection/chest that it looks sort of goofy. I have experienced the same sizing issue with my G3: there's just too much material, which makes the jacket look either really wide or baggy. I might try a large instead of an XL

Jacket Review by Nassim Joaquin
Good product for protection for the rain and wind. I love the color and the Gore tex. The only dowsize is that I dont like the way you hide the hood just with a tiny velcro pad, there are better raincoats for that. And also I believe there was no need to have the zippers all the way to the armpits. The zipper is a bit unconfurtable under the armpits. The rest is great.

[Response from Simms Customer Care Team}
Much appreciated Nassim. We have passed your feedback to the product development team.
