When the middle of summer rolls around, there's nothing like
wet wading a cool mountain stream. And nothing feels as good on your
feet as Simms Guard Socks. These neoprene booties are the perfect match
for Simms wading boots (or any other wading boot, for that matter) when
wet wading. The Simms Guard sock provides the padding needed to fill your
boot; and keep gravel out of your boots, all the while providing a
little warmth so you can stay in the water longer. These wet wading
socks differ from the Neoprene Socks by providing gravel protection
with the tuck-in top and are thicker to fill your wading boots. If
small streams and wet wading is your gig, you have to get a pair of the
Simms Guard Socks.
There's something wonderful about
wet wading around in a stream. Simms Guard Socks make it even more
enjoyable. The 2.5mm neoprene provides padding as well as a little
warmth and the fitted foot design ensures a proper fit; there is no
bunching in the toes or rubbing at the heels. The polyurethane textured
outer sole improves durability as well as grip. The strong boot hooks
keep everything in place and prevent the top from riding up. There are
4 sizes of the Simms Guard Socks ranging from Small to Ex-large.
Specifically designed for wading boots, the Simms Guard Socks are a
great addition to a fly angler’s summer wardrobe.

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.
