Simms Wader Design


Each Simms wader is designed to allow for comfort in all fishing situations - sitting, kneeling, hiking and getting to your secret fishing hole.  An "ease of use" is built into the measurements and we offer the widest range of sizes to accommodate almost every body type. 

Our highest performance waders feature Simms' patented front and back leg seam construction.  This design offers unprecedented leg articulation, superior fit without fabric bunching and significantly minimizes seam abrasion by removing seams from high-wear areas. 

All of our waders feature anatomically correct left and right feet utilizing high-density neoprene and seam tape.

Every wader in the Simms line-up is constructed to offer the greatest combination of durability and performance for the end-user.  The combination of materials, designs and features ensures that there is a Simms wader for any angler or budget.





Simms Quality Control

Every pair of Simms waders is completely pressure tested with water before they are shipped to ensure the lowest leakage and return rates in the industry.  We adhere to strict and rigorous methods of inspection throughout the production process to guarantee the highest quality waders.


Simms Technical Fabrics

GORE-TEX Fabric Technology
The GORE-TEX membrane is the heart of all GORE-TEX products.  The GORE-TEX membrane contains 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch.  These pores are so small that water droplets cannot get through but water vapor can still escape.  Water from the outside cannot penetrate and cold winds cannot pass through, but perspiration can escape easily, keeping you dry and comfortable all day.  GORE-TEX fabrics are created by integrating the GORE-TEX membrane between an outer fabric and lining. 

GORE-TEX Pro Shell

The next-generation in breathable wader technology, GORE-TEX Pro Shell is constructed with Gore Micro Grid backer to produce the most rugged and durably waterproof fishing waders available today.  As the name implies, GORE-TEX Pro Shell is designed to meet the demands of professionals and serious enthusiasts.  We offer both 3-layer and 5-layer GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabrics in our wader collection.

GORE-TEX Performance Shell
Constructed with a knitted backer, GORE-TEX Performance Shell is a tried and true standard that provides breathable comfort and durably waterproof and windproof protection for a wide range of fishing conditions.

QUADRALAM Fabric Technology
Quadralam fabric technology from Toray was developed specifically for fishing waders featuring a heavy-duty engineered fabric with a micro porous waterproof coating that utilizes 2-layer coated fabric, a single membrane layer and a 3-layer tricot.  Used in our Freestone and Blackfoot wader models, this technology offers improved durability.





The Best Warranty in the Wader Business
There are two kinds of waders...those that leak and those that will leak.  At Simms, we stand behind every product we make, and we believe that we offer the best wader warranty in the business.  When Simms waders do fail, we view every case as an opportunity to exceed your customers' expectations. 

First 30 Days - No Questions Asked
If one of our waders leaks within 30 days of purchase, you can replace it over-the counter with a new Simms wader.  We only ask that you get a copy of the original sales receipt.  Please get a Return Authorization for the returned wader.  When we receive it, we will process an immediate replacement or credit on your account. 

First 12 Months
After 30 days, if your customer develops a leak in any Simms waders for whatever reason, the first repair is on us.  Please get a Return Authorization number via the Simms Online Repair Center and return the waders to us with proof of original purchase.

After 12 Months - Life of the Wader
We will stand behind our waders for the useful life of the product, which varies by use and style of wader.  Professional Guides, who may wear a wader for over 200 days in a year, will wear out their waders faster than the average customer who might only fish 20 days per year.  Also, your customer should expect to get more wear from our G4Z or G4 Pro Waders than our Freestone Wader.  All waders that are returned for repair are thoroughly evaluated by our Repair Center professionals.  The wear and tear of the wader is evaluated to determine whether we will do the repair for no charge, or if not, a repair charge will be communicated via the Simms Online Repair Center.
