Gear Review: Simms Fast Action Pants

What is it?

Simms Fast Action Pants

What sets it apart?

Simms conceived the Fast Action Pants with a key objective: to give anglers a high-quality garment with a wide range of motion. Made with 4-way stretch material (91 percent nylon, 9 percent spandex) these pants won’t hinder your movement, no matter if you’re up and down from the console on a busy run-and-gun day or frequently kneeling and reaching to boat the big ones. No tightening around the thighs, no bunching around the knees; the Fast Action Pants were designed with the active angler in mind.

How do I use it?

Designed in a more fitted style with a fixed waist, the Simms Fast Action Pants still offer many storage options. Two slash hand pockets and two deep back pockets will hold your keys, wallet and other essentials with ease, and the pants also feature an additional phone/tool pocket, so your phone or pliers are always close at hand. The quick-drying Fast Action Pants also include a DWR water-resistant finish and UPF50.

Angler’s insight:

Finding a good pair of fishing pants; now that can be a task tougher than selecting the right crankbait color. Fact is, it seems you often end up choosing comfort or functionality. Do you wear something that promotes a full range of motion, something with light but durable material, or something with well-placed pockets? Simms eases the deliberation by designing a pair of pants that hits all three categories. I particularly like the ample pocket space, including a dedicated Smartphone pocket.
