Storm-bucking GORE-TEX® shell for massive mobility and breathability when you need it now.
Simms’ new Vapor Elite® jacket is a Keys to Belize standout powered by 3-layer GORE-TEX® C-KNIT™ fabric that is 10 percent lighter and 15 percent more breathable than comparable shell laminates. Advanced side-runner architecture improves on-body glide. A 3-point adjustable storm hood delivers customizable fit. And a dual draw-cord adjustable hem blocks ripping wind for bolstered comfort. Additional features include a Cohaesive™ cord management system and mesh-lined hand-warmer pockets.
GORE® C-KNIT™ backer technology optimizes comfort while providing durable, waterproof and windproof protection. The reliable and proven bi-component GORE-TEX® membrane system is bonded to an extremely thin, dense yet lightweight circular knit to form a patent-pending laminate. Weighing up to 10 percent less than previous3-layer GORE-TEX® fabric, this new laminate improves breathability by as much as 15 percent in a less bulky, more robust 3-layer construction. The smooth texture of the knit backing is soft to the touch, and makes the garment easier to slide on and off over other layers.

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.
