Pant advantages start with 25-percent more breathable 5-layer GORE-TEX® Pro Shell fabric, intuitively tailored to bolster mobility, breathability, and durability where it matters most.

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.

For a lot of my fishing, above the waist/chest coverage wasn't necessary and I found myself rolling the top portion down, which, is not a big issue, but, one I tired of. Both costing the same, I deliberated about have 2-pairs of waders and finally ordered the pant. Very pleased with it...same quality/durability as my other waders. The zip fly is a nice feature and I find myself using these much more than my chest waders.
I do pack them both in the truck but find I seldom have to walk back to opt for the chest waders.
Great product...worth that moeny

Spent the weekend (20 hrs) in 85 degree sun fishing with these waders. IMHO these waders have set a new bar for to all to follow. The design has gone from bulky cuts that cover what you are wearing to being actual pants. Properly fit and wearing a base layer of moisture wicking fabric, they fit like pants in every sense and are all day comfortable on top of all the other features. Up unto to now, I held off moving away from neoprene because of the bulk of breathable waders. Never mind all the other benefits of the materials, the merits of these waders stand on design, fit and finish alone.

Bozeman River Guides, 7/16/2015
A full-length wader is necessary while wading in deeper water and provide added warmth during cold days. However, I couldn't be more enthusiastic about a pant wader that you can easily take on and off. I use these waders primarily to guide out of a drift boat. Sometimes you need to scramble to get on or off the water. These pants, in combination with the BOA Rivertek boots, make a great speed combo. At the end of a long day when everyone is tired, I like how I can quickly rip these off and throw them in the truck. These have classic Simms durability and a very good articulated knee construction. Lastly, I love the zipper for using the "outdoor restroom" and there is a convenient loop inside the pant for hanging them out to dry.

I fish/work on the upper Weber river....lots of beaver destruction...willows chewed into punji sticks and submerged beaver holes everywhere....as I expected the pants are very durable with the G3 guide boot.... I wear them far more than my chest waders and can comfortably wear them all day

I was in the market for a new set of waders but I have always felt the top part of waders being useless for me. Plus, I do more fishing in and out of my drift boat so I gave the G3 Guide Pants a try. I instantly noticed the durability of these pants. The 5 layer Gore-Tex Pro Shell is the most durable on the market. But its doing take away from the comfort when walking the bank or sitting while on the oars. As a fishing tech for Gore-Tex and an avid fisherman, I recommed these pants to anyone in the same situation.

Heavy Coffee drinker in the morning before finishing requires ingress and egress quickly. I love the pants and my platter agrees. Quality, fit, color, Made in USA , Fantastic. I have two pair of Simms waders, Chest and pants. The small zip pocket on the pants was a great idea for trucks keys. Going on two weeks without premature failure. Hope they last for years.
