HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT SIZE WADER
One of the most advantageous and unique aspects of Simms waders is how many sizes anglers can choose from. Why is this so important? At Simms, we firmly believe that a perfect fitting wader will not only greatly improve your overall fishing experience, but it will also drastically increase the life of your wader. Check out this video and see what size will fit you best. If you need more assistance, please stop in at your local retailers and they'll be happy help you get sized.
WHAT TO WEAR UNDER YOUR WADERS
Don't wear jeans under your waders! Jeans are highly abrasive on your waders wearing from the inside out. More importantly jeans and sweatpants do not transfer moisture away from the body. Proper layering like synthetic materials or wool based products will help wick moisture away from your body and compliment the wader's breathable properties. Otherwise, you'll feel wet and clammy even in the best waterproof, breathable waders made.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR WADERS
Do not store inside your car for long periods of time. Excess heat will damage your waders.
Always put your waders on using a protective mat to shield the neoprene feet from rocks. SIMMS makes the perfect companion for your waders, the SIMMS Taco wader storage bag and changing mat. The Taco Bag zips completely open to provide an ideal changing surface. When you're done fishing, you can store your damp waders in a ventilated bag such as a Simms Taco Bag.
When you get home, you can hang your waders to dry thoroughly.
Regular washing helps maintain the waterproof, breathability of your waders. Wader fabrics are actually micro porous, allowing body moisture to move outwards while preventing water from coming in.
