    Default Slmms pro shell delamination?

    I bought a Simms pro shell goretex jacket last july, I noticed this yesterday and im concerned that it's delamination, I've heard of it but haven't seen it. The inside layer at the left shoulder has parted from the layer under it.
    Any advice or opinions welcome.

    Simms a usually very good, I would return it to your retailer. I've had waders,a zip on a jacket and waist bag fixed or replaced over the year's.

    Thumbs up

    I sent the photos to simms and received a reply this morning asking me to return the jacket for repair or replacement.

    It looks like the backer has started to delaminate from the membrane (presuming this is an internal image) this 3 layer fabric has a outside face with DWR coating, central membrane then a backer. Glad to hear Simms are taking it back tho resolve.
