Simms 2020 Fall Line overview:
New for Fall 2020, the Dockwear collection features a variety of lifestyle equipment and outerwear pieces. Built with extremely rugged CORDURA® nylon, the Dockwear outerwear pieces include the Dockwear Jacket, Hooded Jacket, Vest, Pant, and Insulated Cap. The Dockwear Pack and Tote offer classic function and durable use to meet the needs of anglers, captains, and water-based enthusiasts everywhere. Rooted in Simms’ fishing DNA and balanced with angler inspiration, these pieces fulfill the need for go-to carry solutions, equally at home, at the ramp, brewery floor, boardroom, and beach.
With long time partner, Veil Camo, Riparian Camo is the next evolution of scientifically driven concealment built to keep anglers in tune with the natural world. The Riparian Camo collection features the Men’s G3 Guide™ Stockingfoot wader, both G3 Guide™ Tactical and Bulkley Jackets, ExStream® Foldover Mitt, Infinium Neck Gaitor, and Rain Cap. The new Riparian Camo pattern allows natural breakup with both large and small shape distortion that’s randomized and blended to perform at any distance, with a color palette tuned to North American freshwater environments.
The ExStream collection offers a superior warmth-to-weight ratio and stitchless quilted construction for optimal durability, making this thoughtful collection perfect for anglers layering under waders or bibs. The ExStream collection uses small, silky plumes of synthetic fiber, fused with silica aerogel to mimic the lightweight warmth of natural goose down. Not only does PrimaLoft® Silver Thermoplume have a long-lasting water repellent finish, the ExStream collection is constructed with DWR treated Nylon water shedding fabrics. The special blend of fibers delivers superior compressibility and the ExStream Jacket styles come with a dual slider self-stowing pocket for easy storage.
Gear Transport System (GTS)
New for Fall 2020, the Gear Transport System is designed for all anglers who seek a solution for gear protection and transport, to and from their fishing destination. GTS is a collection of cohesive products, built from burly materials and thoughtfully organized to merge seamlessly together. The new pieces within the collection include a 100L Roller, 80L and 50L Gear Duffels, packing kits, and rod & reel vaults. Be it land, sea or air, this is the go-to kit for all fishing travel needs.
Simms is proud to release the first ever technical rain suit, specially designed by and for female anglers. Constructed with a waterproof/breathable 2-layer Toray fabric and a women’s specific fit, the Women’s Simms Challenger suit delivers comfort, and technical performance throughout. The jacket features an adjustable hood, a center-front zipper with a waterproof storm flap, a chest pocket with a built-in sunglass chamois, and handwarmer pockets. The bib comes equipped with a pass-through handwarmer pocket, plier port, and knee-high zips for easy on/off. Jacket and bib sold separately.
The Dockwear Hooded Jacket combines a durable CORDURA nylon face fabric treated with water-shedding DWR and a warm brushed flannel lining for a rugged, yet stylish piece. The YKK Metaluxe zippers and rubber-coated snaps are just a few of the thoughtful, angler friendly details that make this jacket one of a kind. The jacket also features 100g of insulation throughout the body, hand and interior pockets for storing essentials, and an insulated hood with a quilted lining.
For anglers who refuse to let wet conditions impede their fishing, Simms’ all-new Pro Dry Jacket and Bib is their foul weather fortress. Built with the most performance-driven fabrics in the GORE-TEX portfolio, the new Pro Dry Jacket & Bib are more durable and waterproof than ever. The jacket features tons of on-body storage, shingle cuffs to lock water out & a newly designed hood built for speed. The jacket and bib are sold separately, but when worn together, the weather doesn’t stand a chance.
