The Simms Coldweather Shirt is not an incredibly technical piece of fly fishing gear.
It’s a simple, well-designed and constructed, ultra-comfortable shirt that you’re not going to want to take off…ever?
- The Simms Coldweather Shirt is a polyester faced, polyester micro-fleece lined flannel shirt. The polyester makes it lightweight and quick drying – but it’s super soft and cozy, like a broken-in cotton shirt.
- It’s cut to allow for layering, but it’s not sloppy looking. We wear it about 50/50 “unbuttoned shirt/jacket” mode vs “buttoned up fancy guy” mode. Pro tip: if you’re on the fence, order a size up.
- Because it’s not cotton it’s a great choice for warmth under your waders, but also in steelhead camp / around the lodge in Alaska / rigging up on frosty mornings on the river.
- It should be inducted into the Morning Coffee and Newspaper Attire Hall of Fame. Most comfortable shirt ever.
- You’re going to have to wash it sometimes, and you can’t wear it when you’re washing it.
- You’re going to need to get used to the sarcastic eye-rolling look from your wife/girlfriend/SO when she deadpans “Oh wow, nice shirt you’ve got on again today. Really?”
Seriously, unless it’s 70 degrees or warmer, it’s really hard not to reach for the Coldweather Shirt. Tell your wife/girlfriend/SO that, with all the other shirts you don’t have to buy now, there’s more money for beer.
