Fishing Gear: Simms Challenger Jacket and Bib

Simms Challenger Jacket and Bib

Description and Application: Simms’ Challenger Jacket and Bib run fast in any weather thanks to a new proprietary shell fabric that’s waterproof, windproof, breathable and extremely durable—at all speeds. The jacket features a 3-point adjustable storm hood, zippered chest pocket with interior sunglasses chamois, kill switch attachment and reflective logos for increased visibility off the water. The Bibs’ come standard with two chest handwarmer pockets, internal waist adjustment, kill-switch attachment at beltloop, drop-in plier picket and zippered cuffs for easy on and off. The jacket is available in Small through 4XL and six killer colors, and the bibs are available in Small through 4XL and three colors.

Staff Perspective: I’ve been through countless rain suits, and so few of them actually keep you dry, comfortable and mobile—let alone provide years of use. Anything from Simms comes standard with a level of reliability that confidence is built upon. Whether you need an extra layer on a chilly morning or a dark horizon suddenly becomes wet and rainy clouds, you can rest easy knowing the rain suit in your second rod locker will stand up to Mother Nature and the abuse most anglers can dish out.

Cost:Jacket $199.95; Bib $199.95
