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.

Where's the Simms quality?, 2/2/2016

Got these as a gift for Christmas. Was really excited to try them out but on my first outing there was a slight drizzle all day. About half way through the trip 8hr trip, there were large patches, especially on the seat area, that were absorbing water.

I also don't like how the zipper doesn't go down far enough to allow you to take care of business when you're on the boat without having to take your jacket/top layers off to get the shoulder straps down.

Really comfortable

Rich, 2/6/2015

I bought these and love the fit and simplicity more than the pros. I am concerned about the above and my pants not holding up in the weather? Especially since this line is discontinued. Any input Simms?

contenter legging??????

turracoo, 10/29/2013

Bought the contenter suit at the start of the year however due to the dry summer never got a chance to try it out until last week,Went out fishing on a local Stillwater conditions were very windy and heavy rain all day fished up until lunch time.Found that from the knee down on both legs were wet and some patchy spots above the knee.

On a good note However the jacket kept me nice and dry.
