Simms Sizing Guide

How to measure for waders, outerwear and apparel.

 

 

  • Chest: Measure the widest part of your chest.
  • Waist: Measure the smallest part of your waist, usually just above your belly button.
  • Hips: Stand in a natural stance, measure the fullest part of the hips.
  • Inseam: See 'How To Measure Your Inseam' illustration.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT SIZE WADER

One of the most advantageous and unique aspects of SIMMS Waders is how many sizes anglers have to 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 to get your size dialed in for you.

 

WHAT TO WEAR UNDER YOUR WADERS

Don't 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. Proper layering 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 zip you damp waders into the ventilated Taco bag. When you get home, you can hang your wader 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. Dirt can clog up the works.
  • For more detailed care and repair tips, check out our care and repair videos and tips page.

Men's Wading Boot Size Chart

To allow proper room for the neoprene stockingfoot, find your regular shoe size in the right-hand columns and order the corresponding Simms Boot in the first column. We have found that people successfully size their wading boots between their street shoe size and 1 full size larger (for men). If you are a half size, then you should size up to the next full size. Women should size down (ie: a women's USA size 8 would take a men's boot size 7).

(Simms Boot size 5 will fit a Youth Size 4, etc.)
