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.

I 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!

Im 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!

The G4 waders are dry, comfortable and a great tool for any Guide or fisherman. I put these waders through a very harsh salt water environment. They have never let me down.

I spend close to two hundred days in my waders all over the world, and these are far and away my favorite wader. They are good and tough for those trips where they wont get hung out to dry every night. Just upgraded to the G4z for the upcoming year. hopefully they are as good as the G4pro.

Winter Wading , 11/27/2013
I have owned/tested different waders from various companies and the Simms G4's have been the best quality waders by far and away. The build quality of the G4 waders has lasted over 4 years with fishing over 60 days each year. This is incredible as I have never had a pair make it over 2 years previously (even with the patches). The G4 pair has never sprung a leak as well even in a few interactions with barb wire fences.
The breathabilty of the GORTEX is incredible and makes the waders comfortable even in the summer although I do much of my fishing in the dead of winter. Many of the winter fishing trips I practically live in the waders and they take a beating. I am curious how many more years I can get out of them as GORETEX fabric and the neoprene booties have all held up. I test products for GORE and I am very impressed by the G4 Waders.

Just returned from Alaska where these were used pretty hard. Good fit, comfortable and so sturdy I was afraid they would cause a TSA inspection of my duffle bag at the airport in Anchorage. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a very tough, durable comfortable wader.

I live in Wisconsin on the Mississippi River. I wear my Simms stocking foot waders for trout fishing Wisconsin, Iowa, Alaska and duck hunting and trapping. I switch to neoprene waders for winter trapping but continue wearing my Simms all winter for fishing the streams. I Am in my Simms waders at least 120 days a year. They last longer than the breathable waders my hunting buddy's buy every two years. I can't say enough good things about Simms waders.

NW Steelhead & Salmon Stalker, 4/8/2013
Simms waders are unmatched in the industry, hands down bar-none!
I fish 100+ days a year, often hiking 5+ miles through forest, river bank and water with zero complaints about being waterproof, comfortable and stylin! I prefer the G3 & G4 series, yes they're more expensive, but they're worth it!
Made in the USA (and made by Simms) makes all the difference! And no, I don't work for Simms, nor do I receive any endorsements for speaking to my experience with their products - I just fish a lot and love well made gear!

I got this wader early October 2012 and used it about 15 days so far on the River and it is built so well, it is HIGHLY breathable, very durable, and the most comfortable wader I have ever worn. The new G4 is as good as it gets!
