Wild steelhead, native bull trout, and mice-sipping rainbows don't come to net easily. In fact, you'd better be prepared to spend a good amount of time bushwhacking through soggy riparian zones in the pissing rain if you plan on hooking into aggressive char and drool-worthy salmonids, and that's where the Simms apor Elite Jacket comes in. Made with a three-layer Gore-Tex shell and a C-Knit backer, the Vapor isn't just waterproof, it's also lighter and more breathable than standard Gore-Tex shells. Simms designed this jacket with packability in mind, so you're not going to find a lot of needless features, but you will find two hand pockets, a zippered chest pocket for your go-to fly box, and a three-point adjustable hood that will remain in place when the winds have made it next to impossible to make a decent cast.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
