SIMMS CHALLENGER BIBS + JACKET

 

OF all the gear I own, my Simms jacket and bibs are probably the most indispensible to my year round comfort, and are pretty much close to hand. Winter guiding I’m probably walking out the door of the house in my bibs at least, and given the amount of pop-up storms we have been getting, they are indispensible at this time of year too.

At some point every trip over the last couple of weeks I’ve been climbing into the jacket at least _and a couple of days I wish I’d added the bibs earlier rather than thinking the shower would be brief. You can get colder than you would wish pretty quickly even in August.

But not everyone wants to splurge $800 and up for a rain kit when they have waders at home. Which is why we are so excited about the new Simms Challenger Bibs which will keep you dry and comfy for $400, or buy them seperately for $199 apiece.

Built from the same Toray breathable material as in the Freestone waders, the Challenger series are going to be tough and dry, they look good and feel good. You will dig the features
