There's nothing worse than trying to tie knots with sunscreen all over your hands (or, even worse, in your eyes). Now, with the Simms SunGloves, this needless irritation is a thing of the past! These lightweight, second-set-of skin sungloves protect like no other. As plenty of saltwater hounds know, a whole trip can be ruined from just one day of lax coverage.
The Simms SunGloves offer great fit thanks to a thoughtful cut and 4-way stretch fabric. The palm is left open to keep you fully in touch with your rod, reel, line, and whatever's happening at the other end. Built of lightweight, breathable, SPF 50 sun protective fabric, these low profile gloves offer anglers the protection needed for long days in dazzling settings. Covering up fully not only saves your energy and keeps you sharp, but is the best way to reduce the risk of skin cancer. (What's more, fish like permit will smell something amiss if you've tied on a fly with sunscreen-ed hands.) As they fit easily in a shirt pocket, you've got no excuse for not taking the SunGloves on your next flats trip.

Bulkley Jacket Review

I have worn this jacket only a few weeks but love it already. In Eastern Oregon it gets cold and this thing is made for the high desert! It's comfortable and warm. Great addition to my gear. Thanks Simms!

Just got delivery of my Bulkley Jacket. Very nice! My only concern is the lack of hand warmer pockets on the front. Very lightweight, but will keep you very warm. Good product despite the lack of front pockets.

This jacket really is absolutely amazing! Got to the river and the temp read 17° I had a thin base layer and my guide shirt. I put on the bulkley jacket and suited up. After getting ready I realized I was actually too hot. I started to take of my jacket and the client asked me what I was doing. I explained I just got this really cool new jacket from simms and I was actually sweating. I wore the bulkley with a thin base layer all day with temps only reaching 40° and wind coming in at 30 at least. The Primaloft is incredible technology and during the cold times this will be my go to jacket.
Guide Jacket or Winter Coat?

This jacket is amazing! It's replaced my winter coat and will be in my pack all season in Alaska when I'm not wearing it just in case the temps drop! Primaloft is really great stuff! Noticed a few reviews complained about no hand warming pockets but they are there under your front chest pockets. This jacket is pretty well true to size. I'm about 6 ft 190 and Large fits perfect. I have worn this jacket extensively now in temps down to 15 degrees with just a light baselayer (Like a fleece) and the cold didn't bother me at all. I also appreciate that it really doesn't scream wading jacket and can be worn just as a cold weather jacket. Love the black as well.

Okay, you folks in Alaska, Montana, Idaho and all those other godforsaken cold places may look down your frostbitten noses at those of us in the mountains of Western North Carolina, but we are fluent in cold, too. The Bulkley works. When you first try it on, you may tell yourself "Geez, I paid a lot of money for this featherweight." No, you made a wise investment. Over my ProGuide G4s, with this jacket I'm comfortable in wind, rain and cold. No complaints at all.
