Backcountry x Simms Flyweight Technical Shell Jacket


Why We Built the Flyweight Jacket With Simms

Staying dry is crucial to maximizing your casting time, so we teamed up with Simms to co-design our Flyweight Technical Shell Jacket with top-tier waterproofing. Thanks to GORE-TEX technology, this jacket sheds water to help you keep your line in the water even in a downpour. We love this particular version of GORE-TEX fabric—the Paclite Plus layup—which allows the jacket to pack down into its hand pocket to about the size of your favorite one-liter water bottle.

I have taken this rain shell fishing and hiking in some heavy rain. Performed great. It kept the water out and breathed really well. Definitely high quality. It rolls up small and lives in my pack now.
