Gear We Love: Simms Gear

Last weekend, we hung out at the Bassmaster Classic. We met a lot of great people and got to try out some cool products. One that stands out is Simms gear.

Simms had a hurricane simulator set up. I put on Simms waders, booties, and a jacket (with hood). Then I stood in a booth that sprayed water and blew fans (simulating a hurricane…duh). I didn’t get a drop of water on my clothes or face! Incredible!

Based in Bozeman, Montana, Simms is gear made FOR outdoors-people BY outdoors-people. Some 20 years ago, their breathable waders were an innovative product with an innovative partnership (with the smart Gore-Tex people). Today, they still work to develop products that are new, needed, and comfortable (see their sun protection line).

We hope you don’t find yourself in a hurricane! But even in your regular paddling/fishing conditions, well-made gear can improve your experience. Simms gear is going to keep you dry…I have the [simulated] experience as proof!
