When rough water and chaotic weather conspire, reach for the Simms Contender Insulated Bibs. These bibs bring warmth and waterproof/breathable confidence to any fishing program thanks to 60g Primaloft® Gold insulation encased with bomber 2-layer GORE-TEX® Shell fabric. Fully-padded suspenders improve all-day comfort, while a cut-out hem with a Cordura® overlay enhances durability across critical wear zones. Additional pant attributes include a YKK® AquaGuard® VISLON® center front zipper; two large micro-fleece lined pockets for heat-seeking hands; and a spacious cargo pocket with a YKK AquaGuard® zipper closure and a Cordura® sheath for plier safekeeping.
The GORE-TEX® membrane is the heart of all GORE -TEX® products. The GORE-TEX® membrane contains 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch. These pores are so small that water droplets cannot get through but water vapor can still escape. Water from the outside cannot penetrate and cold winds cannot pass through, but perspiration can escape easily, keeping you dry and comfortable all day. GORE-TEX® fabrics are created by integrating the GORE-TEX® membrane between an outer fabric and lining.
The AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper is a revolutionary new design from the global leader in containment closures. The zipper's new tooth design provides enhanced fluid repellency vs. coil or standard individual element closures.
Primaloft® Gold insulation maintains 90% of its warmth when wet and provides the highest warmth to weight ratio of any synthetic insulation available.
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.
