The latest version of a Simms classic, the Simms Gore-Tex Paclite Jacket provides waterproof protection in a lightweight, packable package. For anglers lucky enough to do some globetrotting in pursuit of fly fishing nirvana, the Simms Paclite Jacket is the single best jacket for travel, but it also makes a great choice for fish bums who spend most of their time on their homewaters, but don't put their wading jacket through hard use day in and day out.
Tropical flats fishing is a high-stakes proposition. The typical bet revolves around cast-killing winds, blinding overcast skies, variable tides, changing moon phases, raging weather fronts, and whether or not you draw any or all of the above during your brief stop in paradise. The featherweight Simms GORE-TEX Paclite Jacket lessens the risk, allowing you to focus efforts on more fruitful pursuits, such as hitting that once in a lifetime permit windfall.

Great jacket. Totally blocks wind and rain. We were recently caught in a driving storm while boating- as always our Paclite jackets kept us dry and warm. This jacket is built to take the weather and is very packable.

Lite weight and smooooth! Great for heavy rain in the tropics or fog in the Pacific northwest (or is that humidity in the tropics and heavy rain in the PNW?). Zip it up and cinch it down. Ultra dependable.
