A wicking shirt with Hydrophobic sleeves

Garment with Hydrophobic Forearms

Garment with Hydrophobic Forearms

One of the things that I’ll be covering here a bit will be patents on Fly Fishing, since they are of course public knowledge and available freely I think it will be cool to keep abreast of current fly fishing related patents. The first in this series will be a patent applied for by the Simms company.

This is a fairly new patent applied for in March 2008. Perhaps this garment is already available, if it is, I haven’t seen it yet and can’t find it on the Simms web site. The hydrophobic sleeves sound pretty cool, keep an eye out for it. Wet sleeves are a pain and this seems like its a good common sense solution to a problem we all face.
