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.

The staff at Simms did everything possible to get a difficult size to us asap. They are M-T size. Workmanship is fantastic. Off to Alaska they go.
Thank you for taking the time to review this product, Joe. It was a pleasure working with you.
Have fun up in Alaska!

I bought these in August this year as I was on a fishing trip from the UK to Norway. Unfortunately my waders and boots were stolen from my hold bag therefore had to buy a pair in Norway. The fishing tackle shop only had 1 pair of waders that would fit me and that was the Simms G3 waders (womens) Apart from them only having a medium size ( the feet were too big ) they were excellent. Very comfortable and very good quality. In inner zipped chest pouch was good . Does it come with a zinger as shown on your video as mine did not have one? Just has a centre holder.

Thank you for your review, constance. We are glad to hear you are loving your Simms G3 waders! If those feet are too large, please feel free to send the waders to us for a standard foot swap into a size that works better for you. We are happy to help get you started if you can email us at [email protected]

Best waders I've owned yet! Being from Alaska, I needed some high quality and WARM waders, and these are perfect! I've owned my fair share of waders, and these were my first pair that were made with Gore-Tex, and I could definitely tell the difference. We do a lot of walking when we fish, and I've had some mishaps with tree branches and logs with my old waders. Not a scratch on these! Very sturdy and durable, and perfect feet on my body length and foot size. I love mine!

I am extreemly disappointed in the choice for the zipper color, why baby blue?? It should be green, brown, orange or at least something that is not goofy or embarrassing. These are professional waders for professional women who don't need to be treated like pretenders.
I contacted Simms directly after opening them and was told to consult with the product focus group, Nope I spend too much time in them fishing to waste my time with that BS. I'll color the zipper with a sharpie and get backl to fishing.

I bought these a few years ago when they came out. The clouds parted because you finally offered the guide waders for women. Super excited. It strengthened my allegiance to the Simms brand. But....it was a first generation, that I know you didn't invest the money in to. There were no belt loops and no tippet pocket. When I called and asked why (after quickly loosing the belt and experiencing the inconveniences) , we didn't get the same accessories as men (the angel of your arm inside to get to the inside pocket doesn't sound like much until you do it repeatedly). I was told "Simms doesn't know where women's hips fall" Really? How do you know where the men's hips fall with all those variable pot bellies? Wait for it..... When I asked about why no tippet pocket, "We didn't want your bust area to look any bigger than it is." Since when? This was when you were moving corporate offices. It was the lamest thing I have ever heard. The real answer was that you wanted to keep the cost down to see if women would buy them. Anyway...I waited for a long time for these, bought them and will live with them "as is" but you compromised for those of us who have brand loyal for years and who have waited for you to support us.
[Response from Simms Customer Care Team] - Kelly, Sorry for your experience, both with the waders and our customer service. The model you are describing is not the current Women's G3 Guide Stockingfoot. Our current model does have belt loops and comes with a tippet tender pocket. Our women's waders are designed and tested by women to ensure features and fit align with everyday use.

I have had these for about a year now and fish almost every day year round. I have always had problems with stockings being thin leading to freezing feet in the winter and un fleeced pockets! Not on these bad boys! Straps are thick and durable (don't scratch or fall of shoulder constantly) Fit like a glove. I am 5'3 and 115 size 8 shoe and had custom ordered mine to fit my petite size and biggish feet. A little extra room in the knee but when climbing boulders or deep bends your happy you have that extra room. No leaks or damage and I have scrapped up on some rugged terrain! Love all the pockets great design with the zip on flap although i never take it off. The only thing I dislike it the wading belt design. Always struggling with that darn thing. Skinny flimsy belt and only 3 "holsters" to slide the belt through... need more holsters.. Thank you Simms!

I have had these waders since December 2014 and I absolutely love them. It has taken me a bit to write a review as I am a product tester for GORE-TEX so I really wanted to break them in before giving an honest opinion.
I live in Island Park, Idaho and fish the Henry's Fork almost daily so I really need a pair of waders I can depend on and I must say that these have been outstanding. Although the winter snow has been mild this year, there have been days where the temps were unbearably cold and these waders kept me warm and dry.
I have tried a couple of different waders and these are by far the best pair I have owned. Not only do I love how tough and durable they are, but they fit perfectly. Being that I am 6 foot tall I ordered the long pair and they are just the right length, so I feel the size chart is very accurate. I also love how they are fitted so they are very flattering, as well as quiet when you are walking around or hiking to the river.
The only thing I would change about these waders would be to add a fly patch in the front pocket. I feel it would be more convenient when standing in the river changing flies, which is a very minor detail.
Overall, I feel these waders are amazing and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new pair.

These are great waders. You can spend a few bucks less, for sure, but I fish 1-3 days a week every single day of the year and these things still look and perform like new. Can't beat made-in-the-USA quality. The first thing I remember thinking when I put these on (vs my older, cheap waders) was dang I can't believe how much gore-tex there is. Every extra year your Simms G3s last is another pair of cheaper waders that doesn't end up in the landfill. If you just fish one or two times a year, these may not be worth the expense. But if you do, you won't regret it. I love mine to death!

After years of wearing ill-fitting men's waders (tight bottoms and huge feet) , we finally have a choice that takes into account women's body contour!
I have large feet for my size (women's size 10.5) so I was able to order a pair of these with custom boot size. They fit perfectly and I have gotten a lot of use out of them. I wear them a lot and always feel secure and protected in these waders.
After several years of wear, they did develop a small pinhole leak in the rear so I am sending them off to Simms for repair under their lifetime repair program. It's hard to ship them off since I love my waders!
Stop hesitating and buy them - I have owned a lot of other brands and none of the others have been as sturdy as these G3s.

I guide 180+ days per yr. These waders hold up.
The fit is great, The stocking foot sizing chart is accurate
I've tried several brands and NOTHING holds up better if you guide as much as I do. Thank you Simms
