The thrill of a morning hatch that sends schools of fish into a feeding frenzy can be ruined by a biting predawn wind. Get a jacket that warms you to the core, so you can keep your line in the water. Simms' men's Contender Insulated Jacket has a two-layer GORE-TEX® shell that covers you with waterproof, breathable protection. PrimaLoft® Gold insulation blankets you in warmth with a lightweight build. Water-tight Shingle Cuffs™ on the sleeves and an interior Lycra® cuff add extra protection from encroaching water and snags. The jacket is finished with a packable storm hood and plush hand warming pockets.
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 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.
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.

Fished on the Susquehanna from Sunrise with rain and temps in the high 30s, into the mid afternoon hours in the high 40s. Rained all day, and kept me dry and warm, without sacrificing movements for landing the pigs.
