Techy Thursday - The Simms Katafront Hoody

The NEW Simms Katafront Hoody is a technical fishing hoody with weather repelling technology. With the immense popularity of the Rogue Fleece Hoody both on and off the water, it only makes sense to introduce a more technical fishing jacket with looks to match.

Available in Hex Camo Carbon or Admiral Blue, the Katafront Hoody offers optimum wind and water resistance in a lightweight, comfortable fitting garment.

Stretch fabric is used all round for unencumbered casting and full range of motion. A three way hood ensures you can close up shop when the weather turns the tables and water shedding cuffs prevent water from hanging around your forearms.

Anyway, here’s what Simms say...

  • Water shedding fabrics
  • Hydrophobic cuffs
  • Adjustable hood
  • Zippered, thermolaminated chest pocket
  • 2 zippered hand warming pockets

FABRIC TECH: Main body: 92% polyester: 8% spandex; Cuff: 100% polyester; Pocket: 85% nylon / 15% spandex dobby

More importantly, here’s what Mr Turangi from Sporting Life, Andrew Burden has to say...

“I like the non-absorbent sleeves and overall fit. Your hands and arms are constantly in and out of the water and once your sleeves get damp the chill sets in.”
