GORE-TEX® Wader Care
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Most stain removers will work fine on our waders. As long as the stain remover does not contain bleach you should be o.k.

Goodbye 5-Layer G3sOutstanding construction quality expected from Simms and extremely warm boots when they are not filled with water. For those anglers familiar with previous bootfoot lines the latest change that will stand out is the thickness of the new 4-layer material used in the seat and legs. Upon unboxing the 4-layer material feels very thin and soft leading one to question its durability.
I have been wearing these waders on eight recent winter outings and both legs have developed multiple pinholes leaving both feet wet. By wet I mean: full on squishing water through your toes wet/soaking pant legs wet/bring a extra pair of socks for the ride home wet.
Leaks are to be expected but I have not experienced leak development so soon with past Simms waders.
