  • Made for fishing from the Keys to Belize, Simms' men's Vapor Elite® jacket is made with three-layer GORE-TEX® C-KNIT™ fabric that's lighter and more breathable than comparable shell fabrics. The smooth texture of the knit backing is soft to the touch and makes the garment easier to slide on and off over other layers. A three-point adjustable storm hood delivers a customizable fit.

    GORE-TEX® OUTERWEAR CARE:

    Cleaning your GORE-TEX® garments regularly will extend the life of the product. It will also keep them breathable as dirt and oil can clog the GORE-TEX® membrane over time.

    It is critical to wash jackets. Natural oils can damage the GORE-TEX® tape and adhesives causing a peeling effect.

    Machine wash warm. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.

    Remember to zip all pockets and close all Velcro cuffs before washing to prevent any damage caused by the machine.

    Tumble dry on warm setting making sure not to use a high heat setting. Drying on warm will actually reactivate the DWR coating.
