Simms Launches New Challenger Gear for Fall 2017


Bozeman, Mont. (for immediate release) – Fall starts now in Bozeman, Montana as Simms Fishing Products releases its Fall 2017 line to anglers around the world. As is customary, the line includes gear that spans across multiple catagories.

In the Outerwear Category, Simms Fall 2017 line features the Contender Insulated Jacket and Bib, both of which utilize 2-layer GORE-TEX® fabric and Primaloft® Gold Insulation to ensure anglers stay in the moment during cold and wet conditions. The jacket and bib come fully loaded with popular Simms features including a shingle cuff design, zippered chest pockets, microfleece lined hand-warmer pockets and a tuck-away, 3-point adjustable storm hood in the jacket and YKK® AquaGuard® Vislon center-front zipper in the bib.

A new windproof jacket graces the fall line with the new Challenger Windbloc® Hoody.  Constructed of Polartec® Windbloc® Hardface fleece with DWR treatment to help shed water, the Challenger Windbloc® Hoody is the perfect outer layer as the temperatures drop.    Two new flannel offerings—Guide Flannel LS Shirt and the Gallatin Flannel LS Shirt—and the all-new Rivershed Sweater Quarter Zip add critical layers for chillier temperatures.

Carrying and protecting critical gear is a huge initiative for the Fall 2017 line which can be seen in an all-new line of Dry Creek™ packs and bags.  Inclusive of duffels, roll-tops, backpack and hip pack, this rugged yet light collection offers roll-top closures, bomber new fabric and improved features sets.  All of this allows anglers to keep precious gear protected while traveling or fishing.  The new Dry Creek™ Boat Bags are the perfect boat storage companion and offer new features and construction.

Women anglers receive a fine compliment of fall offerings, including the toasty Women’s Guide Insulated LS Shirt, Women’s Coldweather Pant and the Women’s Challenger Windbloc® Jacket.  Each offer protection and complete the Simms layering options for women.

The complete Simms Fall 2017 line can be viewed at [http://www.simmsfishing.com<http://www.simmsfishing.com]www.simmsfishing.com<http://www.simmsfishing.com> and is available at specialty fishing stores worldwide.
