ICAST 2013 | Simms
I also really likes the Simms BugStopper LS Shirt. If you frequently fish grass lakes during the summer, you're well aware of how awful the gnats can get. I frequently fish Lake Seminole in Georgia and the gnats can get so thick that it makes breathing difficult. The BugStopper LS Shirt is extremely lightweight, allowing you to wear it even in extreme temperatures. It's also treated with Insect Shield, which repels bugs to allow for comfortable fishing. The sleeves of this shirt are also designed to give you a wide range of motion, which is going to be very convenient for casting. It will be available in sizes up to XXL and will retail for $99.95.
The Hyalite Rain Shell Pant also impressed me. During the summer, it can be pretty uncomfortable to wear a full set of rainsuit bibs when you get caught in an afternoon rain storm. These pants are totally waterproof, but very breathable at the same time. They feature 2-way side leg zippers with nylon sliders that allow you to quickly slide them over your shoes, which will help you avoid soggy socks and feet. The side leg zippers also stop at the waistband which make it easy to access your pockets and increase ventilation. Regardless of what you're wearing underneath, whether it's gym shorts, khaki shorts or jeans, the adjustable waist with belt loops will assure a snug fit. If you're not into wearing a belt, these pants have an interior drawcord while also featuring adjustable Velcro cuffs for a watertight fit on your ankles. They retail at $129.95.
