Simms Guide Classic Jacket Review
Rain, Rain go away….said no one ever wearing the Simms Guide Classic jacket. The Guide classic is the revamped version of what was the longest running piece in the Simms product line up that remained virtually unchanged year after year even as other models were discontinued or altered in some way, the Guide jacket soldiered on.
Construction and Materials
The Guide Classic jacket's are constructed of a 3 layer Gore-Tex that will ensure no matter how heavy the rain is you will be dry!
The Guide Classic jacket has two large breast pockets with fleeced lined hand warmer pockets and a large inside zip pocket perfect for important items such as keys or a fishing license.
The back of the jackets have a large D-Ring loop on the back designed for attaching landing nets.
The cuffs do not absorb water and can be easily tightened down to keep the water out there is a slight overhang on the cuff as well to aid in shedding the water.
Not only does the Guide Classic keep you dry it will help keep you warm as the jacket will block 100% of the wind, a cold wind can make you chilled to the bone so this jacket is a useful every day garment not just a rainy day garment.
We have sold a good number of these jackets already and have received nothing but positive feedback from our customers about the quality of the Guide Classic jacket, we can also offer the same praise from our employees who have purchased this jacket and fished it hard, the performance has been on point.
The sizing availability of this jacket has the largest range of any jacket in the Simms line up available in small right up to 4 XL this jacket will fit all body sizes. When selecting a size we always recommend considering the layers you may be wearing underneath, a perfect fitting jacket may become too small with a heavy sweater and a few layers for cold weather so making sure ample room is important.
We recommend layering up at home first before wearing a newly purchased jacket on the water to make sure of a proper fit.
Being constructed of a breathable material taking proper care of the garment is important for performance and longevity while our blog post maybe focused on how to maintain and clean breathable waders the care points are all relevant to a breathable jacket.
If a new rain jacket purchase is in the near future for you the Simms Guide Classic jacket is a choice that will not disappoint.
