I've often said that your gear (waders, boots, pack, baselayers and jackets) are key to a GOOD quality outing! If you are not kept comfortable in other words warm, dry and protected from the environment an awesome trip has the potential to be a disaster! Living and guiding in the central part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula keeps me exposed to all kinds of weather. The kind of weather that can swing 30-40 degrees either way in no time flat. With that being said the Simms G-4 pro jacket has been an absolute blessing to me. I am now in my 2nd winter with this jacket and I find it to be invaluable!
Now these are just a few of the high points that I personally value as I spend half my year fishing in the extreme cold and wind. The only negative in my opinion is the sticker shock but I look at it this way, If i have it as long as I had my previous jacket (9 yrs) and I divide the cost by that time well then I actually didn't spend that much considering how much it has helped me!
