CleanStream™ is a design philosophy that runs through our line of wading footwear. While not specific to a product feature, this designation does indicate that the product includes features and/or materials that are more resistant to "hitch-hiking" organisms – have less exposed stitching, fewer ridges & pockets and utilize non-absorbent materials – all making the boots easier to inspect, clean and dry faster. All of these elements assist anglers in doing their part to prevent the spread of invasive species. For more information, please visit our CleanStream™ page or these organizations: www.cleanangling.org, www.protectyourwaters.net or www.tu.org.
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.

Love these G3 Bootfoots. I do a lot of winter steelheading in the PNW. I have these in felt and my feet are always super toasty. Love the easy on/off. I beat my buddies wadering-up every time by a long shot. Thanks Simms for now putting out the LL sizes for us taller dudes. Only minor complaint would be the boot insole. Rubber boots don't have the stiffness / sole protection that regular boots have. I've somewhat resolved this by replacing the thin Bogs insole with a stiffer footbed insert I bought. Overall excellent waders

Have had a pair for 4 yrs with lots of use even for
duck hunting. I like the easy on & off vs the stocking foot
wader. I now have a small leak after 4 yrs but consider this
a win since my neoprenes rarely last 4 yrs without a hole.
Getting a new pair now. You'll love these despite the price.

I absolutely love my G3 stockingfoot waders but I also like the old school approach Simms took and released these bootfoot waders. I am very anal about making sure my gear is clean after the fishing trip and stockingfoot waders are a bit pain to clean and dry. This bootfoot might be my next wader primarily for this reason. Oh and the fact that ill be the first one on the water is also cool..!
Now to my question. Most of my steelhead fishing is done in colder months with water temps in 30-40's but I do like to take occasional summer trout trip. Im sure this wader will excel in cold but can it be worn in summer comfortably?
[Response from Simms Customer Care Team]
If you are comfortable in your stockingfoots in the summer you will be comfortable in these. In the summer I usually wear mine with the bib part down. i take the shoulder straps and clip them around my waist.

I don't have a lot of fishing days on these waders yet but so far they are everything I need in a wader for winter steelhead fishing. Warm, comfortable, tough, good storage pockets for snips, tippet, flies and license. The bog boots are very comfortable. Not a cheap wader but worth the extra dough for those freezing days. I was a long wait but worth it. Thanks Simms for bringing back the bootfoots.
