- Needs Better Drawstring Material Review by Mike
OverallI have to completely agree with other reviews here about these fleece pants. I tried them on in the store, bought them, took them home and wore them for about 20 minutes without taking the tags off. They're really baggy in the seat and upper legs (I'm 6'2", 200 lbs and bought a size L) but more importantly, the drawstring would absolutely not stay tight. Every time I bent over, the drawstring loosened up so much I thought they were going to fall off when I stood back up straight. I took them back to the store and traded them in for the Cold Weather pant. Now I'm happy. Conclusion: Not what I would normally expect from Simms and needs some redesign.

- Great pants but..... Review by ManJack
OverallEverything about these pants is great but they would be just that much better if they had foot straps.

- HATE THE DRAWSTRING Review by Mack
OverallI run a charter boat out of Sitka AK and these are super comfy and warm pants. Feel great under the raingear or the waders. They run really big in my opinion. I have a 34-36" waist and the large is almost too big around the hips. I'm pretty bummed how Simms designed the waist strap though. Awesome pants but the drawstring almost ruins the whole product cause you cant even tighten them up for longer than five seconds. I spend my whole day on the boat just pullin my damn pants up like a hoodlum. They should give you free suspenders with them or use a little common sense when they read the reviews and see that everyone HATES THE DRAWSTRING

- bad size chart Review by adyak
OverallVery comfortable under waders but the size is way off.I have a 36 inch waist and ordered the large size.Seems like these would fit someone with a 40 inch waist better.The drawstring doesn't work to keep these pants up.That being said the pants are warm ,and very functional as all simms products are.Just need to get the sizing right.

- Summary Review by Topwater
OverallThis is my second season using the Guide Fleece Wading Pants. I am very satisfied with the functionality, except for the waist draw string. I cannot keep it snug. I tie a knot at the spring clip and that helps somewhat, but it still slips. I also found that the waist size seems to run on the large side. Maybe this is to acommodate layering. Before the next season I plan to try and replace the draw cord with a different material. I personally think that Simms should look at switching to a different cord or clip system. If that improvement is made please post, there may be repeat sales from those of us with the old style.

- Draw String Review by Lab Ret Guy
OverallI bought a medium pair, 5'10" and 180# and no gut.The draw string locking device is the same that I use on my decoy line. Works great for my tangle-free decoys but is worthless on my wader pants. I have tied knots in the drawstring to limit the amount of slippage but this has not helped. I am trying to figure out a way to replace that thing , any suggestions ? I am the guy carrying his waders to the truck with his wader pants around his ankles...you can't miss me. I am not moving very fast.

- Warm Review by Jared G
OverallVery warm. I use these in the winter with simms heavy socks and waderwick pants underneath. The whole setup keeps me warm all day. Best part of these is the cuffs. They don't ride up when you put your waders on which is a pet peeve in other fleece pants not designed to be worn under waders.

- Draw String Review by Gone Fishing
OverallI just took receipt of several Simms products and am very pleased with the overall quality,fit,and sizing. However after wearing around the house several times I would seriously recommend Simms change the draw string design. For the price of the Guide Fleece Pant the draw string should stay in place when set. It does not and has a tendency loosen quickly. The result is obvious and for now I will need to use a clip on set of suspenders under the waders. (5"7" 145 lbs no belly fat as an excuse)

- Fleece Guide Pant Review by Capt Camo
OverallA very comfortable pant to wear even around the house or after a long day on the water. The drawstring lock does not hold at the desired tightness and needs to be adjustment every time you bend over or sit down. It gets to be annoying after a while but the pant is so comfortable I still enjoy wearing them, I wouldn't buy another pair unless the lock is replaced.
