Description of the Simms Guide Vest - Vests:

Even more functional and larger storage capacity than its predecessor, this 18 pocket classic comes with a power stretch mesh yoke and padded breathable collar for all-day comfort on the water.

"Simms. The choice of professional guides; and anyone else who lives to fish. "

Why do professional guides choose Simms?
Because we take pride in what we make, and products have been designed to go the distance. Our in-house design team has a combined 50 years of experience in making durable technical outerwear. We work closely with top material suppliers from around the globe, and continually test both our new and old products in the lab and out in the field to make sure we meet or exceed your expectations.

What does this mean for someone who's not a professional guide?
Anything that's designed to meet the performance needs of guides is gear you can count on.

From the Simms Team "Nothing pleases us more than to see our products, like those on the guides featured in out catalog and on our website, go the distance."

The only thing worse than being cold and wet when fishing is heading home because you are cold and wet. Simms outerwear is designed to keep you dry, comfortable and casting whether its raining, the wind’s blowing or the snow’s starting to fall. Featuring advanced technologies and incredibly functional design, this is essential gear that can truly help you fish longer and more effectively.

Simms Guide Vest
Rating: 5 of 5 [5 of 5]

Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 1 - 4 Months
Pros: Quality fishing vest through and through. The vest is light-weight and dries quickly. It has just enough room for all I need to carry on a days fishing trip without being bulky. I'll be buying another when this one wears out!
Cons: I'm 6 feet tall and I'm used to a vest that is slightly longer than this one. I previously had a Pflueger vest that went almost to my waist. While it had more pockets, the pockets themselves didn't have as much room!
Other Thoughts: I like the design on the pockets that are built into the face of the vest rather than being a pocket which is simply sewn on. There was obviously a lot of thought that went into the design of this vest. When it comes to fishing gear, I consider it as important as my tackle!
Top notch Simms vest

Pros: I love this vest! True, it's costly but you could pay more and get less. It's got more storage than you're likely to need... I don't think that I've even found all of the pockets yet! Simms quality is top notch and this vest looks and fits great.
Cons: None... it's expensive but worth it.
