- 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.

OverallI purchased two pair of jackets and bibs, the second time my wife wore the jacket the cuff (neoprene ) started cracking, e bibs on the third time, the ankle strap separated. $1,800.00 plus tax.Now it's time to see how well the warranty is, as in, will I have to ship back and be without for weeks, etc.

- Eddie Shanagher Review by ProDry Jacket
OverallI always put my fishing clothing at the top of my list of important items when it comes to fly fishing on the many great Loughs here in Ireland. The weather sweeping in along our Atlantic seaboard is notoriously unpredicatble, and you can often get the four seasons in one day whilst out fishing. I put the G3 and G4 jackets through their paces over the past five seasons and both passed with flying colours. I have handed them on to two of my sons now (both delighted of course) and bought myself the ProDry Parka jacket. I have been testing it for the past month now, and it has already seen some of our harsh spring weather conditions. Its a cracking good jacket theres no doubt. I would only deduct half a point if the option was there, just because I miss the fleece lined pockets that the G3 and G4 possessed (handy to keep one hand warms whilst driving the boat), as well as the noticalbe absense of built in retractors which are vital for quick access to tools such as nippers and pliers as well as my Simms lip balm. These are only small things, but still I do miss them and feel its important to mention as, after all, it is an item of fishing clothing, and it has always been the Simms attention to detail factor that won me over for so many years now. Its hard to please everyone I suppose!

OverallPro Dry jacket Awesome jacket. Dont't expect it to keep you warm, just dry. Excellent features such as high face gator, watch window on sleeve, zippered hand pockets that'll stay dry even if you forget to zip them and a built in removable/wasbable sunglasses cleaner are icing on the cake. You'll never get wet wearing this jacket.
