G3 Guide Tactical Jacket
The Simms G3 Guide Tactical Wading Jacket is everything you want and more for when its raining sideways, the temperature is plummeting, and you're waist-deep in the middle of a river.
With unmatched durability and protection, incredible gear storage capacity, and and enough warmth for the fiercest of conditions, this jacket truly has it all for an unruly forecast.
The G3 Guide Tactical Wading Jacket has a 3-layer GORE-TEX construction with water right cuffs at the wrists and a packable storm hood, which provides you with a top-to-bottom waterproof seal that keeps you dry in the wettest conditions. The layered GORE-TEX 100% nylon face is your armor against the conditions. However, this jacket is lightweight, weighing at 20 ounces overall. The watertight cuffs are a godsend; they keep core warmth from escaping and they also keep you dry when you need to take the plunge and tail a fish. The storm hood is packable so it stays out of the way when you don't need it. But, when you do need it, it is adjustable and protects you from the heaviest of downpours.
You can store every piece of gear you could imagine for a day of fishing in the G3 Guide Tactical Wading Jacket from Simms. There are 9 pockets in total: 4 zippered chest pockets, 2 zippered fleece-lined hand pockets (that are oh so warm), 1 zippered sleeve pocket, 1 internal zippered pocket, and 1 internal stretch mesh pocket. All pockets and main zippers on this jacket are YKK water-resistant. Additionally, there are 2 integrated retrators, 1 fly patch, and 1 net D-ring.
The GORE-TEX membrane contains 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch. These pores are so tiny that water droplets cannot get in but vapor can escape. Water from the outside and cold winds cannot enter but vapor and perspiration can escape easily in this membrane. Thus, you stay dry, comfortable, warm, and breathable all day long.
