Our men's Katafront Hoody is a technical fishing jacket that meets all conditions. Layer it under a rain shell or wear it on its own on drier days.

  1. Great fishing jacket


    This jacket has been amazing. It is super comfortable and is an ideal wading jacket. The hydrophobic cuffs are perfect for dipping your hands in the water to land or release a fish. I recommend this jacket to an angler.
  2. all around winner


    How often do you check the forecast and see wind, clouds, maybe light rain? Next thought, what to put in the pack? This hoody covers all of those needs. It pack small and it is great for all but a rainy day. It blocks wind, is warm, nice hood and repels water nicely! It works well for happy hours too...It's a an all around winner!
  3. Excellent layering hoodie


    As a full-time guide on Northwestern Pennsylvania's Allegheny River I fish in extreme weather. Typically I use the Katafront Hoodie as a layering garment, underneath a Kinetic jacket or Challenger jacket. Its weight to warmth ratio is outstanding. When you zip it up tight the hood provides excellent protection during cold boat rides. And when the weather turns warmer it's also an excellent stand-alone hoodie.
  4. Awesome confort and look great


    Top comfort and great look ! Good jacket Simms
  5. Fur magnet


    The bottom of the sleeves collect dog worse than anything I've seen before. Other than that this is an excellent piece of quality gear.
  6. Just bought


    Bought this yesterday. I’m 6’ 180 and the large fits great. Good lookin, good feelin jacket
  7. They look great but the sleeves are way too tight


    The sleeves on this hoodie are very restrictive for their sizes. Range of motion is limited to the point where I don’t think I could fish in it. Had to go from a large to a 2x to get sleeves that actually fit comfortably but by then the rest of the jacket was huge on me. Other than the restrictive sleeves I like the hoodie
  8. Nice


    Tight fitting sleeves at the cuff good for releasing fish. Superb shell toasty and blocks wind
