When you're getting dressed in the dark before dawn to hit the water at first light remember: not all shorts have what it takes to be fishing shorts. These Simms Guide Shorts have fishing in their DNA. Made of a quick-drying nylon/spandex material with COR3™ performance treatment for odor control, moisture wicking knit and UPF 50 sun protection, these shorts are river-ready. Angler-specific utility at every angle, the Guide Shorts have a gusseted crotch for range of movement and functional pockets galore.



  • Quick‐drying, wicking, anti‐odor & UPF 50
  • 1 zippered, hook & loop cargo pocket & 1 zippered back pocket
  • 2 slash hand pockets with a double‐layer abrasion panel
  • 1 internal cell phone pocket
  • Crotch gusset & adjustable waist
  • Inseam: 10in 
FABRIC TECH: 94% nylon/6% Spandex



  • Products using the COR3™ Technology fabric finish have a UPF rating of 30 or greater, properties to minimize odor and outstanding wicking performance for important moisture management. The anti-odor finish helps control odors caused by a wide range of microorganisms (mold, mildew, algae, yeast) is compatible with virtually all fabrics. All of our performance cotton clothing utilizing COR3™ also feature COR3™ EZ. The "EZ" means easy care and indicates that garments featuring this treatment will travel well and resist wrinkles.

  • At Simms, sun protection is a critical component of our sportswear offering.  Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, we offer a wide range of clothing that features a minimum UPF of 30 (very good) up to UPF of 50 (excellent).  UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and indicates how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed.  A fabric with a rating of 50 will allow only 1/50th of the sun's UV rays to pass through.  This means the fabric will reduce your skin's UV radiation exposure significantly.  All of our UPF finishes last the life of the garment, an industry standard of 30 washings.

Best shorts ever

Drew, 8/15/2017

Bought a pair a year ago from an outfitter in Tampa. When I got back home, I ordered two more pairs from the Simms website. Two weeks ago I found out they had this darker color so I ordered two more pair. Once they arrived I threw away all of my other shorts. Nothing comes close to comparing to these guide shorts.

Great Quality

Nanny, 8/6/2017

Another great product from Simms. I liked the first pair so much, I ordered two more pair. Great fit, dries quickly looks new after wash. Perfect amount of pockets and features.

Best fishing shorts

Mattymointx, 8/18/2015

I love wet wading and these shorts are great for it. They have been my go-to shorts in the Amazon, in Kiribati, and in the keys. Once you hop out of the water they are dry in ten minutes, and haven't yet held a stain.

Typical Simms quality, but ...

Robert, 6/28/2015

I have been a loyal Simms customer, and these shorts meet my expectations for quality. There are, however, a couple of minor design issues: (i) the back pocket is very deep, causing anything in there (typically my wallet) to calling around on the back of my leg; (ii) the inside front pocket is too narrow for either my phone or my money clip (not sure what it is intended for).

[Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Thanks Robert. We will pass this along to the product team. One of the uses for the inside pocket is for a cell phone. Thanks for supplying your contact info. We will email you to find out what kind of cell phone you have. This will help with our dimension for the future.

These shorts are awesome! Love the length and the new pocket designs. These shorts also dry very easily. Get a pair!
