If you’re in looking for a great deal n a new wading jacket, Simms has a 40% off deal going right now on both the Freestone ( toray......non Gore-tex) and Guide (gore-Tex) jackets. As always......I have no financial ( or any other) interest on this.......just a very satisfied Simms customer.

I’ve had my Guide jacket for about 10 years now, and it’s still waterproof and going strong.

Some places have these in limited sizes ( e.g. s and m) but Sierra Trading Oost has the Freestone in everything from small to extra large, fwiw. I couldn’t find the Guide st STP, but I’m sure any place that carries these jackets will
Price match. Again......no financial
Interest in any of this

The Fly Shack has a good selection and great prices.
As Dave said I have no connection just know they have great prices.

My guide jacket is going strong for 10 years. It is way overkill since I don’t use it as a vest, but I have yet to find a good alternative for name brand goretex, so the guide cost itnis, with a chest pack over it.
