Guide Short

As much as you love your waders, it's nice to let your legs enjoy the refreshing feel of a mountain stream in a pair of Simms Men's Guide Shorts. Made with a two-way stretch fabric with COR3 technology, not only are the Guide Shorts easy to maneuver in when you're casting from the bow of drift boat, but they resist odor-causing microbial growth and provide protection from the sun. A gusseted crotch makes entering into a power stance while you make a double-haul cast to the far bank easier, and it makes stepping in and out of an unstable boat simple. A mess of pockets holds just about anything you'd want a pair of shorts to hold.. 

  • Two-way stretch nylon/spandex blend with COR3 technology
  • Antimicrobial
  • UPF 50+ sun protection
  • Traditional fit
  • Adjustable waist with belt loops
  • Articulated knees
  • Gusseted crotch

Guide shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: l

Excited to get these shorts for wet wading and golf. Have worn several times and like the fit. Would probably go up one size for extra comfort but still fits well enough to keep. I would like to see 4way stretch fabric in this style like other Simms offerings. Overall would recommend.

Guide Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: xl

Fit- Runs slightly small still fits but might go up one size if your wavering.
Great shorts. Used for hiking and fishing so far. Quick dry. Only want would be for the fabric to be 4 way stretch. Still would recommend.

Great Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Great fit for the athletic build

Small legs

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 40

Legs are small in large sizes. Other Simms shorts in the size 40 are fine. These are skin tight thru the thighs. Seem to be good quality.

Comfy shorts

    Comfy shorts. For a variety of uses. Hiking, fishing. Or just lounging around. Quick dry material so you don't have sit around in wet shorts all day. I just bought these and have not put them through the ringer yet. But I'm sure they will be my go to shorts for whatever Adenture I find.

    Light weight, Comfortable, Quick Dry

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Sizing seemed spot on to me. I have used them for Hiking, SUP, and general casual lounging. Pockets are mesh lined and the fabric seems to repel water. Great for Water crossings, get a little wet and dry very quickly. Fit was to just above my knee, I would have liked another inch on the length, but overall 5 stars.

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Measure around the base of the neck.
    Bend to the side and measure around the place where your waist bends, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Have someone measure from the center of the back neck down the arm, with arm slightly bent, to the wrist bone.
    measure from the crotch to the floor with no shoes.
