New for 2018 - Simms G3 Waders and Dry Creek Z Packs

Men's G3 Guide Waders

The all new G3 Guide Waders are arriving. We got our first shipment and not every size is available at this time of writing but it won't take long to fill in the gaps.
Starting with the Men's, I think the big news is Four Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell in the legs and seat. Boat rowers can breathe easier knowing that they have an extra layer under them. I like the new zippered reach through pocket better than the last design. Also notice the addition of Super-Fly patch on the front (Super Fly Patch not Included). The New G3 Guide waders now come with a 2" stretch belt.

Men's G3 Guide Pant

Tough 4-Layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell and TiZip waterproof fly zipper give this G3 Guide Pant guide status. Mountain stream or summer days in the drift boat are what this tough lightweight waist high wader is all about.

Women's G3 Guide Waders

Same great construction as the Men's but more than ever the emphasis put on this Women's version is all about fit and comfort. The Women's G3 Guide Waders feature Women's-specific design with a scalloped top opening which fits higher at the chest and lower at the back. I also noticed some tweaks in the sizing chart all focused on fit.

Dry Creek Z

Dry Creek Z Sling

The big news here is the TIZIP Zipper is easier than ever to operate. Note the loop at the end of the zipper providing a solid pulling point. Also note that all three of these packs now feature a water resistant quick stash outer pocket. Simms has really refined Dry Creek Z Sling Pack to be more user friendly than ever with additions like built in D-ring for net attachment, bottom side lash points and a waterproof 840D TPU coated fabric that just feels natural.

Dry Creek Z Hip Pack

This hip pack takes on a cool new approach to entry. The top opens away from you providing unobstructed view of contents. The New Simms Dry Creek Z Hip Pack also features the velcro on top for convenient addition of the Super Fly Patch, (not included).

Dry Creek Z Backpack

29 Liters of dry storage to keep your gear dry whether it be soggy drift boat days or backcountry hikes through the rain forest. The Dry Creek Z Backpack is a rugged, puncture resistant and fully submersible waterproof all weighing in at just 28 ounces.

Simms is always engaged in a non stop pursuit of wader and gear improvement. I believe the 2018 lineup of new Waders and Packs is a solid display of the results of their commitment to anglers.
