From bitter early morning cold through battering late-afternoon storms, the outside elements can be a distraction when you're zoning in on the end of your line. Simms men's Challenger Fishing Jacket fights back against the elements with heavy-duty Toray® fabric and fully taped seams for completely waterproof, breathable comfort. Fleece-lined pockets warm your hands in the most numbing weather. An adjustable storm hood packs away in the collar, and a storm flap with water-resistant zippers adds protection from the driving rain.
2-layer Toray® laminate for 100% waterproof, breathable protection.
YKK® water-resistant zippers with center front storm flap
3-point adjustable storm hood with stowage in collar
This is a must-have for fishing in a CC boat offshore chasing tuna and Mahi. Warm comfortable and great style. The fleece-lined neck is so awesome. Love the jacket! the material is very heavy duty and can take a beating! This is just a great all-around boat jacket. I won't get on my boat with out.
I bought this jacket after getting soaked in a water resistant windbreaker. When I received it I fished in pouring rain just to try it out. The water just rolls off like no other jacket I have owned. I have also used it in my kayak in moderate wind and was very comfortable and warm. I’m not that familiar with this type of hood tie so I’m getting used to it. If you got H2O, it takes one zip to be water tight.
Great product,, kept me dry when was out fishing. I do recommend this product. My problem is the first day I wore the jacket I fell against a lure while walleye fishing and drove a treble hook through the sleeve..maybe wax should repair it..
Fit great. I,m 5,5” 220lbs. Neck is 19”. Big broad shoulders. I need room in my arms. It has good room in the arms to move and fight that fish on. I have short arms, so sleeves are 4” to long but the Velcro helps keep the sleeves off my hands.
Excellent fit and has ample amount of pockets, however the neck is made for someone with a huge neck, need to be more versatile in the neck adjustment and incorporate additional adjustment for tighter neck adjustment.
