We’ve seen the Simms Women’s Guide Jacket perform at its best and made many ladies happy on the water. The perfectly fitted hood and comfortable GORE-TEX shell gets the job done even in the Chilean rainforest.
The Women’s Guide Jacket from Simms has been re-designed bringing an even better fit protecting you from the elements. The new GORE-TEX soft shell technology creates excellent protection with a soft and comfortable fabric. There are two large concealed chest pockets to accommodate gear as well as hidden built in retractors for your hemos or nippers. Hand pockets are flannel-lined and zippered for warmth and a high collar provides added protection from the wind and rain. There is a lightweight and adjustable storm hood that stows away easily in the collar. Storm cuffs feature watertight stretch fabric to close off entry for water entry and all zippers are saltwater friendly YKK zippers.

I bought this jacket over other fishing jackets because of the style, function and durability. I fish in the Rocky Mountains 10 months a year and this jacket will be used every month. I am 125#, 5'3" and bought a size Small. I was going to get the XS, but am VERY happy with the small. It does not look too big, but does allow for layering under the jacket. I would fully recommend this jacket, as long as you use it!
Too thin wrist?
Being a happy owner of Headwaters waders I recently decided to complete my fishing gear with this jacket. Looks pretty, great quality, very pleasant soft lining. Waterproof and comfortable. But one thing disturbs me: when I pull my hands into the water or rise them up while raining - water gets into my sleeves through those storm cuffs, though they're tightened quite good. Do I have too thin wrists (water gets in through little folds of so called "watertight" fabric) or what? Size is OK, it's S (167 sm tall, 90 breast, 65 waist, 95 hip)
