DescriptionTour de force stretch-fleece meets core warmth performance
Step inside Simms’ new Kinetic Jacket and tame the maelstrom in angler-driven comfort and style. PrimaLoft® Gold insulation stacks warmth where it’s needed for optimized layering options without the bulk. While plush Polartec® Wind Pro® stretch-fleece—located in underarm and body panels—enhances breathability and increases range of motion for making casts that count. Brushed tricot-lined handwarmer and zippered chest pockets are low-profile and won’t catch lines. And a low-profile insulated hood, designed to layer perfectly under Storm Hoods featured on Simms’ shell pieces, adds fortress-like performance to your on-the-water arsenal.

- Warm and slick Review by Sandy
OverallThis is a great layering piece. The outer material is very slick and slides under your gore two shell with no binding like you get from fleece. The insulation is good, really good. I haven't had the chance to test the claims that is retains 96% heat while wet because I'm pretty careful about having my rain smell ready at the first hint of rain.
It fits pretty true to size with a fit on the slimmer side. I wouldn't expect to put much more than a thick base layer beneath it, but I would not thing you would need too much.
The stretchier material under the arms really does work, I would say one of the best things about the jacket is the absolute freedom of movement. No restrictions on movement at all,m very comfortable.
My lost stars are due to the fact that it is made in China instead of Montana. I'm worried Simms is going to start making all of their gear in China and then the quality will slips like many other brands. Simms has a premium price m

- The Jacket That Does It All Review by Nate Sipple
OverallThis is the jacket I've been waiting for Simms to make for a long time! Simply put, this thing rocks! Worn alone or under a shell, the Kinetic will keep you warm while letting your core breath. The stretch fabric under the arms and along the cuffs is smart as it will hold up longer/better than the nylon material. The hood is perfect for blustery fall/winter days and the zippered chest pocket is great for a phone, tippet, etc. It is a slimmer cut, which I like, so keep that in mind when ordering I'm 6'2", 210 pounds and the large is great. If you plan on layering a lot underneath, order up a size! Truly a great jacket... Looking forward to other colors in the future!
