Why We Like The Simms Challenger Fishing Jacket

Simms' Challenger Fishing Jacket is one of the most accessible pieces in their on-deck rain-proof lineup. The waterproof-breathable Toray fabric keeps downpours at bay without being overwhelming during the breaks between storms. The deployable hood neatly tucks behind the collar until we need its coverage, and hook-and-loop cuffs provide a snug fit that prevents rain from rolling in.

  • Waterproof Toray shell repels rainfall and maintains breathability
  • Updated fabric made with recycled materials
  • Stowable hood rolls to fit behind collar
  • Adjustable cuffs and hem secure to keep more water out

Fits great and should work great on the boat. Kind of a medium weight jacket. I like it. Ran true to size.

The best set of rain gear at half the cost of high end

I believe that this jacket and bibs, (challenger series) is the best bang for your buck in fishing. High end style and true to size fit, at a price that's half of most competitors. Simms makes ultra end gear as well but like I said bang, for buck, this is it.

Perfect rain jacket for Spring/Fall Fishing.

Nice jacket. Perfect weight for Spring/Fall Fishing. Breaths nicely, but keeps you dry during a sprinkle or a downpour.

Great comfortable fit!!

Fit is perfect! Haven’t used in the rain as of yet but it blocks the wind and water spray from wind very well! Definitely recommend this product!!

Another Great Simms Product

This is my go to everyday coat. I love the durability and room! I’m a big guy but still have plenty of room for layers underneath the coat. As per usual, Simms has outdone themselves.

Second challenger jacket for a reason

Great jacket! A medium fits me perfectly at 5’10” & 170lbs. This is my second challenger-first one flew out of the boat. It was three years old and immaculate. Recommend👍

Great jacket

This is a great jacket. I've worn it in some heavy weather and the material plus shape combine to keep water out really efficiently. Highly recommend.

Great Jacket

Bought this for my son for Christmas, it fits nicely, and I’m sure will get the job done, as I know the challenger line will take care of you in bad weather. It’s not Goretex, but like all other breathable/waterproof materials, you have to give them proper maintenance, take care of them and they’ll take care of you- no matter the price point. Some stuff does last longer than others, and outperforms other items, but it doesn’t take away the fact that it works. You are definitely going to have a windproof jacket with this, layer like you would without rain/snow precipitation in the winter, and throw on this shell. It will cut the wind for you. Enjoy!

Zipper color is not red!!!

This is easily a 5 star jacket! I’m very happy with it and it looks amazing. My only reasoning for giving this 4 stars is because the jacket as advertised has a little red zipper on the front pocket. The zipper I got on my jacket was black. It’s very minor and maybe not a concern for others, however, I personally think the red zipper looks great and that’s what I was expecting to receive. Other than that, no complaints at all, I’m very pleased with my purchase!
