About the New G4 Pro™ Stockingfoot
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.

- Incredible waders! Review by JP
OverallI recently purchased a pair of these, and I am more than satisfied. These waders are a godsend! After going through several pairs of cheap waders, I decided to save up and get these. They are worth every penny! They are extremely comfortable, and warm in the cold water, yet cool and breathable in the sun. They block the wind 100%! They fit great, and seem very durable given how light they are. The pockets keep my stuff completely dry and the gravel guards work better against the sand than any I have used on other waders. As a surf fisherman the breathability of these waders is priceless. Walking miles through sand and in the sun, its very easy to overheat, but not in these. They keep me very very comfortable in any weather.

- You can see and feel the quality of the wader when putting them on Review by Marcus
OverallIve gone through a couple of waders before decided to go over for a more high end pair of waders and then the G4 Pro was the obvious choice.
At the first try they really felt solid and you could see and feel the quality of every stitch and seem.
They really make you feel comfortable by the water and keeps you warm and dry by the river.
The only downside with this model is the size-chart that leaves no room for a perfect fit at least for my body.
A typical medium guy with a 31-32 inseam has to go around with too long legs and have a higher risk of leakage since the only choices for me is to go up or down 1 size since Medium/Short is to short and Regular Medium is to long.
Think the span of 4 inches between Medium and Medium/Short is to much, would love to see an option for people between sizes since I would love to see a Medium sized wader with Inseam 31-32

- I have not yet begun to fish! Review by Andy with Duranglers
OverallI have not yet begun to fish! At least that's what I feel these waders are telling me. I picked these bad boys up late 2012, have over a hundred days on the water with them, and they have yet to have a problem.
No leaks, no noticeable signs of wear. I am still totally dry!
Not only are these great for fly fishing SW Colorado; I would also feel confident in taking these waders into battle in a bog or swamp against a pack of baby T-rexes.
Take care of your waders, they will take care of you! You never know when you will be in the middle of a swamp, carnivores on your tail, warmth and comfort something that isn't even a problem thanks to the G4 Pros.

- bullet proof Review by mikey2378
OverallThese waders are tough! I'm in them every chance I get and the only damage has been in the gravel guards from a stick getting stuck and the rear belt loop started to Frey but I just nicked that with a lighter and it melted and stopped the frey! My only gripe is now they put those nifty shoulder straps on! Wish they would of done that from the beginning!

- All day comfort Review by Akspey
OverallWow! Great set of waders have spent some serious time in these now and I have nothing but good to say. Very comfortable, you feel bulletproof ripping through the river in these things. Will buy another set in a second.

- Could last more then a month Review by Love Simms but....
OverallI'm a big fan of all Simms gear. I have plenty and the coats and technical clothing rock... however.... I have been through 3 different waders in a year. I have the same problem with the g4, the g3, and the classic guides.... they all leak. I have sent all 3 back and they still leak. granted I am in waders 200+ days a year but still.... these things should be bomb proof for the price and they aren't. everywhere there is a seem I end up with random significant wet spots on my lower legs time in and time out. It's very frustrating. I love the features and they seem to be built well but the fact is they leak.

- The Best Wader Period! Review by Eugene Shuler
OverallI had over 700 days on my last pair of G4 waders, and I would bet my new pair will get just as many. Being a full time guide in the Great Smoky Mountains you punish gear and need waders that can withstand not only the elements, but you as well. My G4 waders do that with ease. I put my waders on at 6am everyday and many days wear them 14 hours or more. All day comfort, unrestricted movement, perfect fit, and most of all, superior durability. Simms waders are the best on the planet!

- G4 Pro Stockingfoot Waders - Bulletproof (Figuratively) Review by Ken Hubbard
OverallI am a part time fly fishing guide and test gear for GORE. I tend to be hard on my gear and the Simms G4 Pro Stockingfoot Waders are simply fantastic. The 5-Layer GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric in the legs and seat allow for aggressive bushwhacking to the river without at all impeding range of motion or causing overheating. The zippered hand warmer pockets are ideal for a quick thaw of cold hands and the waterproof zippers keep your phone or other valuables high and dry.
My favorite feather of these waders is the flip-out Tippet Tender Pocket. It has enough room to store leader/tippet, indicators, floatant or whatever else you may need for a day on the river. The outside of the Velcro closures also works great for additional fly storage. Just put a few flies on the Velcro you'll need for the day and leave the fly box in the truck!
There are too many features to list in a brief review, but the Simms G4 Pro Stockingfoot Waders are the toughest out there and worth every penny. With the tried and true GORE-TEX fabrics and the Simms design and exemplary customer service, you can go wrong!

- great waders Review by lou
OverallIm on the water 150+ days a year and I am very rough on my gear. these waders can handle everything that you throw at them. After 2 year they have no leaks, rips or anything like that. I recommend putting the extra $ to get high end waders!
