Received my jacket a few days after ordering. I was showing it to my wife this morning. She took the jacket to wear during a cold and windy morning. When she returned, she said she loved it! When going hunting or fishing, I will have to fight her for it.
Unfortunately the first day of my last trip rained like we were under a fire hose. Fortunately I had just received my new Simms jacket from Stillwater. I fished all day with the jacket and ended as dry as I started, not like my mate who's jacket ended up leaking like a sieve.
I bought this jacket because of Simms's reputation for quality product. I just received the parcel and opened the package. I am a bit disappointed due to it did not come with a neoprene cuffs. It won't keep my arms dry when you need to reach or release the fish. But it may serve the main purpose of not getting wet during the rain!
Dry in Rain City
I bought this jacket because of Simm's reputation for quality gear and because of its price. The day after I got it in the mail, I took it out to the lake fishing with me. It started out to be a light rain but soon turned into a sideways downpour. I fished for 3 hours in the downpour and was able to stay completely dry!
