- Product Care
Toray® Wader Care:
Toray® waders are breathable though not as breathable as GORE-TEX®. They do not have the same properties as GORE-TEX® and therefore finding pinholes will not be possible using the alcohol test. Care for Simms wader with Toray® technology then as you would a GORE-TEX® wader. Make sure to dry them out after use and do not wear jeans, and never use a dryer to dry them.
We are not able to replace the feet on Toray® waders. We are only able to put custom feet on GORE-TEX® waders.
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.
Toray® fabric technology was developed specifically for fishing waders. The QuadraLam™ fabric featured in the Freestone® and Blackfoot™ waders is a heavy-duty engineered fabric with a microporous waterproof coating that utilizes 2-layer coated fabric, a single membrane layer and a tricot backer to offer improved durability.
- Punctures easily Review by Oregongadwall
OverallBought a pair for running Noatak River. Didn't last long. I'm glad I had my 10 year old SIMM wader as a backup

- Excellent Review by Cisco
OverallThis is my third SIMMS breathable wader and usually they last me at east three to four years. I live in Kodiak, Alaska and I used it almost daily during the summer and fall months. I like the high quality material and its nice look. The only negative comment I have is the inseam. I am a short fellow and it was kind of long for me. I wish SIMMS make inseam of 29-30 in medium 9-11 foot. I received positive comments from my fishing buddies and had told them I ordered it direct from SIMMS.

- great waders and customer service Review by dwhemmert
OverallI've owned Simms waders for 10 years. These are great waders for the price, Simms stands behind their product. Just had a pair with a leak on the upper leg seam. One week later I have my waders back and I'm on the water with them. If you keep these waders clean and dry after use and stored in a cool, dark, dry place they are worth several years. Simms has always come thru for me. Thanks Simms!!!

- A very good wader for the money Review by DE Williamson
OverallI have had Simms Freestone waders for about 7or 8 years. I am on my 3rd pair, and the only problem I have had is leaking in the seams. I wear my freestones in the winter and spring here in PA, and they are very comfortable. Simms, replaced the waders everytime. Sure some waders will have some problems leaking, but its Simms Warranty and customer service is # 1. Thanks Simms, for your great product and customer service.

- I would change a few things... Review by madasahab
OverallJust bought an older model...2011? Great waders, awesome fit, just wish a few things... draw string top, flip out or waterproof pocket, much more layering around the lower legs for protection...brush is evil! I think this has been corrected on the new model...overall, awesome!

- Didn't Last Review by Joe
OverallI like the features on these waders and they seemed tough enough to hold up well. They lasted less than a year and have started leaking at the seams. My old cheap ones did the same thing but they lasted four years. I'm assuming Simm's will stand behind the product.

- Good waders for a good price Review by Joseph
OverallGood waders in the salt rivers, can hold up to sand and any other thing mother nature throws at me on the tidal flats, has a nice compartment for all of the essentials and a nice spot for a patch to carry all of my good flies. I use them with BOA boots and a great combo i would recommend to anyone who wants to get into the real game of fishing.

- not good enough Review by Jonas Andersen
OverallMy Freestone waders have not lived up to my expectations. I take good care of my waders; no walking through scrubs, always bringing along a towel to sit on, always wash in lukewarm water when used worn in saltwater. The storyline is: 1st pair: Leak in left sock. 2nd pair: Leak in right sock. 3rd pair: Leak in the back. 4th pair: Leak in the crotch. Each time I've sent them back to my local dealer, and it has taken a month or so, before I eventually got a new pair. Hopefully the new version is better than the previous - because that one was really rubbish!!
