WIN: A Simms G4 Pro Jacket Worth £499

We've got an exciting prize in this month's competition - we're giving our anglers the chance to win a Simms G4 Pro jacket  worth £499! The G4 Pro jacket is perhaps one of the best wading jackets on the market right now. Made from Simms' updated GORE-TEX PRO shell fabric, it is 15% lighter than its G4 predecessor and carries improved abrasion resistance, making it more durable against wear and tear. As well as being incredibly lightweight, it's also extremely water resistant thanks to its Dry Cuff design, intended to keep your sleeves completely dry when tailing or casting in wetter weathers.

Pro wader jacket

It may be surprising that a wading jacket could be worth such an amount of money. After all, there are plenty of great jackets out there, many of which perform the same or similar role to the G4 Pro and a fraction of the price. So why, you might ask, should anglers choose it? One of the biggest attractions of this jacket may just be summed up perfectly by one particular reviewer who pointed out that it doesn't take many fishing days at all for £499 to sound affordable. In fact, many dedicated anglers will agree, it takes just about half a day! Not only does a warm, dry body lead to increased fishing productivity; having gear that will prevent you from getting wet should you find yourself in the water at any time is just good sense. The G4 Pro also enables you to fish when it's cold; wade in waters that may be slippery and is a good all-round investment for the future. (Put it this way...you rarely hear of owners needing to 'replace' their G4 Pro...!) It may also be worth noting that this worthy jacket contains a total of nine storage pockets, including fly-box friendly zippered chest pockets and a convenient sleeve stash. Unlike previous G4s, this jacket's dedicated gore-tex material is actually 'shake dry' meaning you can dry off quickly and effectively after a cloud burst or being exposed to the water. The Simms G4 Pro is NOT just your ordinary rain jacket. Enter our competition to win one for yourself and see what all the fuss is about!
