Clear water, big fish, and cold, unpredictable weather. Steelhead season on British Columbia's Bulkley River is famous for it all. Our Bulkley Jacket keeps you warm and dry on the coldest, harshest days thanks to a GORE-TEX® build that sheds it all, combined with high-loft PrimaLoft® insulation in the body and sleeves that adds the warmth you need to stay comfortable on the water. You'll also stay unseen thanks to Simms River Camo patterning, developed by Veil?? Camo, that gives you an edge by distorting a fish's ability to detect shape and motion as you work through the run from head to tailout. The jacket hem features waterproof GORE-TEX® inside and out to keep you drier in deep wading conditions. The Bulkley Jacket also features our watertight Shingle Cuff?? design to prevent up-sleeve water migration every time you reach into the river. Fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets help defrost your digits, and two fly box compatible pockets keep essentials within easy reach.
Proprietary River Camo developed by Veil™ uses specific patterning and colors to distort the fish's ability to detect shape and movement
The GORE-TEX® membrane is the heart of all GORE -TEX® products. The GORE-TEX® membrane contains 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch. These pores are so small that water droplets cannot get through but water vapor can still escape. Water from the outside cannot penetrate and cold winds cannot pass through, but perspiration can escape easily, keeping you dry and comfortable all day. GORE-TEX® fabrics are created by integrating the GORE-TEX® membrane between an outer fabric and lining.
Designed to Blend In…Because you’re the last thing fish want to see. Uniquely designed to evade fish, River Camo offers you an edge at beating detection, so you can get one step closer to the fish and that perfect casting position. In collaboration with Veil Camo, Simms® developed River Camo—a cutting edge, proprietary and mathematically driven camouflage pattern for fish—by breaking up shapes. Built with a color palette tested in the river environment and against the fish’s vision, River Camo is technology built to keep you more in tune with the natural world.
