One hat to rule torrential days on the water, this tech-laced lid features seam-taped 3-layer GORE-TEX® fabric, with a Nylon face, for absolute waterproof, breathable performance. A removable leash provides catch-and-retrieve options on windy days, while the plastic buckle closure ensures a secure, comfortable fit for all sizes.
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.
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.
This is an expensive cap, but I love it. Very comfortable and of course waterproof. Going back to my local fly shop to buy one for a friend.

Bought this hat 2 days ago at Sportsmans in Kalispell went back to get another for my son in WI. They are out -- will order on line direct -- this is a fantastic hat -- spendy but "Simms" quality is worth it - their stuff is made by folks who "know".

I had been spied this hat online, saw it in store knowing I needed a new hat for 2014, and I came back to Field & Stream I'm Cranberry, Pa and bought it. Fits perfectly w/ a very easy to adjust band in back. Gortex means my head stays dry. My second Simms piece for use bass fishing & competing in W Pa bass tourneys. Simms, worth the investment, no better fishing gear.
