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.
All Simms outerwear features nylon YKK® zippers to minimize corrosion and provide high performing, durable wear.
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.

After the first day of use these waders started leaking. It says that these waders cannot be fixed by Simms, what i understand only the ones made in the US so... Did i throw $300 to the trash?
I do not recommend these

I had a pair of Simms Gortex waders for something like 15 years and though they have the tiniest leak they look rough. So I opted to purchase a new pair. These Freestone waders are a great logical and economical choice. The reach thru hand warmer pocket is a nice touch and the external zipper pocket is great. I nice addition is the built in gravel guards. Love those.
I only gave it the 4 stars because of the lack of interior pocket. I am little confused on why they left out the interior pocket and made it an ad on item for an extra $24,95.

So far so good. I've been out on a few rivers for an approximate 20 uses. Everything is working well (as expected).

Bob Mitchell's Fly Shop in Lake Elmo, MN is the best!
Ok, with that out of the way......these waders are a fantastic value. For the price of these and the Freestone boots it was hard to pass up adding another fishing option.
The fit, quality and how they integrate with other Simms products is wonderful.
I have slogged around a few minimal access lakes for Musky, Northern and Bass with a fly rod....and I thought fishing out of my kayak was fun!

After using these waders in the surf through the spring and now into the fall, I've got about 30-40 trips in them and they still don't leak!
I've had such poor experiences with other brands leaking after a few trips.
Highly recommended. Just be sure to rinse them after each use.

I am new to fly fishing and was looking for a wader. I shopped on line and checked out all brands and prices. Shopped the sports stores and looked at all of them. Read reviews on web sites and finally bought the Simms freestone wader. They look to be the best made and price that I had saw. Tried them on at a sports store and the fit was really good. I had tried on other brands and they did not fit as good as the freestone wader. I will try these out this next week and see how they do. Will let everyone know then how they work for me.

Can't get a better product for the price. As always Simms is superior to the rest.

Thought I'd give a little insight to what you are not seeing in the pictures. The reach through hand warmer pocket is a great feature, and I'm able to stuff my GoPro in there plus small fly box when needed. The hooks on the gravel guards work nicely with my Rivertek 2 Wading Boots, the secure quickly to the small D-Ring on the boot. Also there is a zipper on the inside (chest area) where you can zip in a waterproof pouch conveniently produced by none other than Simms. This set of waders will get the job done, and you'll be happy with them.

I've used my new wades for one season now. They have been everything I hoped. The fit is far superb to my previous waders where I looked like a drift sock standing in the river. I regularly hike long distances through the woods and down sharp rock faces to get to the streams I target and have never had a issue. No leaks, great fit and a great company that stands behind its products. Sounds like a win to me.
