Simms Special Edition G3 Guide™ Stockingfoot Wader
This Veterans Day, Simms is honoring those that have served our country like only it knows how – with the creation of a special edition Made-in-the-USA fishing wader. For a limited time only, Simms is offering a special edition G3 Guide™ Stockingfoot to benefit WQW.
The G3 Guide Stockingfoot – Warriors & Quiet Waters wader is the company’s first foray into a custom wader, made possible by utilizing the country’s last remaining wader manufacturing facility. The new special edition G3 Guide wader features 5-layer and 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro Shell fabric, Multicam® camo pocket, belt loops and top hem, WQW custom patch, and all of the same features found in the award-winning G3 Guide™ Stockingfoot.
“We have been partnering with Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation since their launch in 2007. The benefits are extraordinary for everyone involved,” says Diane Bristol, Simms’ Sr. Director, Employee & Community Engagement and WQW Board Member. “Each time the warriors come to Simms, we are honored and humbled to be able to play a small part in their recovery.”
Simms has been supporting WQW, hosting each of the organization’s week-long Fishing Experience (FX) trips to Montana during the fishing season. Each warrior is outfitted with a selection of Simms gear and is given a tour of Simms’ wader manufacturing facility.
“To witness the power of fly fishing on these true American heroes is breathtaking,” says K.C. Walsh, Simms President. “We hope the fishing community will embrace this special product offering because its story is much more important than just staying warm and dry.”
The special edition wader will remain on sale until all inventories are gone. In total, the offering is attempting to raise $100,000 for WQW. Anglers can see the wader at simmsfishing.com or at select special retailers across the U.S. For a complete list of retailers, visit www.simmsfishing.com/wqw.
Who would have thought that a little belt from a small town could make such a big impact?
Inventor, Jen Perry, visualized a 100% recycled belt that could not only keep her pants on, but help combat-wounded veterans at the same time. From the Big Sky Country of Bozeman, Montana, first time Entrepreneur, part-time Guest Ranch Operator and full-time Mom came up with the idea for a truly low-profile, stretchy belt, that could be worn either under fitted shirts, or as a modern-retro fashion accessory. Jelt’s grippy inner gel design holds up the pants of both men and women, and with no metal parts, Jelt can be worn straight through airport security! Jelt is made from 100% recycled yarn and for every Jelt sold, $1 is donated to warriorsandquietwaters.org.
