Simms Bulkley Jacket
Whether you need a jacket just to keep toasty while walking the dog, or to keep cold rain from soaking you to the skin during an all day steelhead outing, look no further than Simms Bulkley Jacket. You won’t find 10,000 pockets, tool holders, or built-in battery packs here; it’s just a utilitarian jacket that’s super-comfy, keeps you warm, and keeps you dry thanks to a GORE-TEX two-layer shell and PrimaLoft insulation. Fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets and easy-cinch watertight cuffs are also nice touches. I’ve been wearing one since October for everything from raking leaves to chasing striped bass and absolutely love it. – Joe Cermele

But if you’re an angler and happen to anticipate receiving a few candles yourself, head off those awkward Christmas Day smiles and half-hearted thank you's by sending this gallery to everyone who’s going to buy you something.
Fishing Editor Joe Cermele and Editor-at-Large Kirk Deeter have compiled 22 items ranging from stocking stuffer prices on up, guaranteed to make you—or any angler on your holiday list—all warm and fuzzy on December 25. Happy shopping!
