Good Idea poor quality control Review by MnMike

MnMike 12/16/2015

I received the jacket yesterday and I really liked it. Once I put it on I noticed the pocket zippers did not have zipper pulls. The cuffs on the arms stretched out after one use. Will be exchanging it.

Highly recommended Review by Eric Schaaf

Eric Schaaf 10/6/2015

Love this jacket. Slick and easily tucks under waders. Moves naturally with my body, does not feel bulky. Water beads off it. Keeps me warm and chilly temps and wind. Great for spring or fall fishing. Very happy with it and love the soft material and hood.

Warm and slick Review by Sandy

Sandy 4/8/2015

This is a great layering piece. The outer material is very slick and slides under your gore two shell with no binding like you get from fleece. The insulation is good, really good. I haven't had the chance to test the claims that is retains 96% heat while wet because I'm pretty careful about having my rain smell ready at the first hint of rain.

It fits pretty true to size with a fit on the slimmer side. I wouldn't expect to put much more than a thick base layer beneath it, but I would not thing you would need too much.

The stretchier material under the arms really does work, I would say one of the best things about the jacket is the absolute freedom of movement. No restrictions on movement at all,m very comfortable.

My lost stars are due to the fact that it is made in China instead of Montana. I'm worried Simms is going to start making all of their gear in China and then the quality will slips like many other brands. Simms has a premium price m

Great jacket but has fallen apart a bit Review by Scott

Scott 3/19/2015

Being a huge fan if Simms I was so excited to purchase this jacket. It's the perfect fall jacket up here in Michigan. If I recall I bought this jacket in September and by January the pocket zipper has broken on right side as well as the Simms logo on upper left chest has been peeling off. All in all another great product from Simms. I don't think there's a day that goes by when I don't have some sort of Simms clothing on....

warm, light weight and packable Review by Sierraguide

Sierraguide 3/6/2015

A great jacket for walk and wade or rowing the boat. It's not to heavy or bulky but it keeps you warm. Works out great with a rain jacket over it for real bad weather.

Not that great Review by GL

GL 2/8/2015

I really wanted to like this jacket but it continues to disappoint. The inside of the pocket which is a double layer of thin fabric blew out somehow after the first few times in use (fishing), the zippers on the pockets constantly snag the jacket when trying to close and the cuffs on the arms which are a stretchy fleece are too thick, bunch up and have stretched out with only maybe a dozen days wear. :(

Good All fishing Jacket Review by Ben Sierra Guide

Ben Sierra Guide 12/29/2014

Weatehr can be unpredictable here int eh Eastern Sierras of California. You might wake up to a 7º morning and be fishing in 60º by noon.
Throw on a Simms Solarflex baselayer, and this coat, and you'll be good all day.

It is light weight, compressible, and is comfortable iin a wide range of weather conditions. Great for backpacking, skiing, and of course washing your flies.

Perfect! Review by Somoza

Somoza 12/20/2014

Perfect in the Field Review by Craig Schuhmann, Guided Waters Fly Fishing

Craig Schuhmann, Guided Waters Fly Fishing 12/16/2014

Balancing insulation, layers and outwear can be a tough and frustrating. The kinetic has thus far gone a long way to solving this problem. With minimal layering, Insulation and breathability seem just right in a 30 degree wind or 50 degree sunny day, and all variables in between, including light rain. You will still need a shell in a downpour. The fit, stretchy panels, and sleeve length did not make much sense to me in the store, even feeling a bit constrictive, but once in the field this jacket literally molds to your body and moves perfectly with every action whether casting, rowing or scrambling over rocks. The kinetic layers nicely under a pair of waders with almost no additional bulk. When worn, the hood is lightweight, barely noticeable and the edges stay out of your field of view, all while adding significant warmth. This is not a coat for walking down Main Street, but on the river it’s one sweet piece.
