You have two pair of Simms Pro Dry? Or one of the lower end Simms models?

BPS 100MPH - GORE-TEX - $470
BPS Pro Qualifier - GORE-TEX - $ 440
BPS Bone-Dry (not gore-tex) - $260
Cabela's Guidewear - GORE-TEX - $550

I'm leaning towards the Pro Qualifier, since they seem to be lighter weight, but still GORE-TEX.


Just check out the main zippers between the BPS and the Cabela's guide wear. Not sure which one is the best but they are significantly different. One looks more waterproof and one looks more durable to me.

I have owned just about all of them. I would say in this order

Gill
Simms Pro Dry
Simms Challenger
Huk
Under Armour

I cant comment on the cabelas or BPS but the GILL is above and beyond all the others.

I am old school and have had GREAT luck with Walls bibs and jacket, but that is OLD SCHOOL stuff. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I DO have a BPS bib, too, works fine for me, too. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck. I have heard NOTHING BUT GOOD about the Simms stuff AND all the 100 MPH suits, including Cabelas, too.
