Simms Bulkley Jacket
Simms Bulkley Jacket delivers fortress-like protection from washing-machine weather. Its waterproof breathable GORE-TEX shell envelopes heat-generating Primaloft Silver insulation. Storage pockets house multiple large fly boxes while the water-resistant zippers keep contents secure and dry. Shingle Cuff construction in the sleeves eliminates line-catching points for snag-free casts.
The Simms Bulkley Jacket is an all weather, Gore-Tex jacket designed to offer both an outer waterproof layer and an insulated interior layer for warmth. Redesigned for 2015, this jacket provides a lightweight outerlayer for wear in both precipitation and cold weather. The jacket's water proof nature is derived from the use of a 2-layer Gore-Tex outer shell which repels water keeping the wearer dry when exposed to rain, snow or direct water contact. The design features a longer cut, in between a jacket and parka, which provides additional coverage extending over the waist with shock cord hems enabling adjustment of fit. Additionally, the jacket possesses a high, front zip design which affords additional coverage over mouth when fully zipped up. Further water resistant considerations include the use of easy cinch cuffs that reduce the chance of water entering the interior of the jacket.
The unique design element of this jacket, and what sets it apart from other rain gear, is Simms' PrimaLoft Silver insulation used in the jackets interior. PrimaLoft Silver insulation was developed by Simms to provide the most warmth-to-weight ratio possible without sacrificing the necessary rang of motion demanded by anglers. While many companies boast their rain gear to be both warm and completely water resistant, the gear is often bulky, restricting and quite heavy leading to reduced mobility and the onset of fatigue. Simms' Bulkley Jacket delivers the warmth without the size; this jacket is quite lightweight and sleek in comparison.
The small details of the Bulkley Jacket were of great importance to Simms'. Such considerations include Simms' use of corrosion resistant YKK zippers enables more versatile wear that will withstand even direct contact with saltwater. Additionally, the jacket possesses large chest pockets for storage and fleece lined hand warmer pockets for comfort. The Simms Bulkley Jacket will prove an excellent choice for just about any angler looking for a nice, lightweight all weather jacket. Freshwater, saltwater, wading - the Bulkley Jacket has got you covered!
