Jacob Freeman

We asked Jacob Freeman of Ballingers Hunting and Fishing what sold him on the Midstream:

“It’s like getting into your own form fitted sleeping bag. The warmth and wind proofing properties are surprising given the Midstream’s small, packable size making it as home on the river, the canals on an icy winters day, up in the hills or down the Saturday morning sidelines. The new Simms Midstream Jacket is my pick for winter 2019”.
