Why Simms Waders
- Product Care
GORE-TEX® Wader Care:
The #1 tip to prolonging the life of a wader is drying your waders. It is important to dry your waders out after each use. We recommend drying the inside first (if damp) and then the outside. When drying the outside you can pull your gravel guards up until the feet are dry and then flip them down to dry the rest of the wader
Washing - Use a front load machine or hand wash. Use cold water and normal detergent that does not contain bleach. Once you have washed the waders make sure you dry them properly start by drying the inside first. Never put your waders in the dryer, the heat will adversely affect the seam tape on your waders and will void your warranty.
Fit - We offer more sizes than anyone, a good fit goes a long way to extending the life of your wader. Make it clear that people should use their exact measurements as we have already provided extra room for layering and movement.
General Care - Do not store inside your car for long periods of time excess heat will damage your waders.
Use A Mat - Always put your waders on using a protective mat to shield the neoprene feet from rocks. The Headwaters gear bag for example has a pull out mat that works great for this.
Proper Layering - Do not wear jeans under your waders. Jeans are highly abrasive wearing on your waders from the inside out. More importantly jeans and sweatpants do not transfer moisture away from the body. Use proper layering (to view our layering collection, go here). Using layers such as these will help wick moisture away from your body and assist in the waders ability to breathe.
Stains - most stain removers will work fine on our waders. As long as the stain remover does not contain bleach you should be o.k.
GORE-TEX® PRO SHELL outerwear is waterproof, exceptionally lightweight and offers the ultimate in breathability, durability and extended comfort. Constructed with a woven backer, GORE-TEX® Pro Shell garments slide easily over other layers and offer exceptional tear strength and internal abrasion-resistance.

- Durability with comfort Review by James
OverallI was in the market for a new set of waders but I have always felt the top part of waders being useless for me. Plus, I do more fishing in and out of my drift boat so I gave the G3 Guide Pants a try. I instantly noticed the durability of these pants. The 5 layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell is the most durable on the market. But its doing take away from the comfort when walking the bank or sitting while on the oars. As a fishing tech for Gore-Tex and an avid fisherman, I recommed these pants to anyone in the same situation.

- Over 50 Frequent "Your-In-eater" Review by Truthfully
OverallHeavy Coffee drinker in the morning before finishing requires ingress and egress quickly. I love the pants and my platter agrees. Quality, fit, color, Made in USA , Fantastic. I have two pair of Simms waders, Chest and pants. The small zip pocket on the pants was a great idea for trucks keys. Going on two weeks without premature failure. Hope they last for years.

- They are tough and comfy. Review by AKGuide
OverallI needed a pair of wading pants this last fall for guiding moose and bear hunters and these did the trick. I gave them all I could muster and they held together great and kept me warm and dry. Bear brush, freezing temps, and constant hiking were no problem for these waders.
