When threatening skies approach while you fish on the flats, from the shoreline, out at sea, or on the river, reach for the Simms Men's Acklins Jacket. Designed with Gore Tex three layer shell fabric, the Acklins provides waterproof, lightweight, durable, and breathable performance to ensure long lasting wear in a wide range of weather conditions. Its Gore Seam taped seams also seal out water to prevent any leakage, while the Acklins's three point storm hood with drop collar construction cinches around your face to minimize water entrance in gnarly conditions. The storm hood also includes a rear adjustment that once secured offers full visibility and functional ease of movement so you don't miss a beat while you fish in unsavory weather. A YKK AquaGuard center front, lightweight, and flexible zipper with internal storm flap supplies added protection, as do the hook and loop cuff tabs. The articulated sleeves and fit offer plenty of mobility while you cast, row, or handle a tarpon. Simms also gave this lightweight jacket extended length, mesh lined hand pockets that ditch excess heat when you're working hard to bring in a monster sized trout or a good sized sailfish. A zippered chest pocket houses your fly fishing license, lip balm, or other small fly fishing essentials.
