Simms G4 Pro Wader

This is the most popular wader with our guide staff at Red's. It isn't necessarily our best seller, that is the Simms G3 Guide Wader. There is a great buyer's guide below and you can decide for yourself which one is the right wader for you. The Simms G4 Pro Wader is the highest performing GORE-TEX® Pro Shell fabric wader – built for anglers that are going to wear it hard and take fishing trips that they can't or don't want to be wet or cold. Think steelheading or trout in the fringe months. This is essentially the Simms G4Z™ Wader without a zipper. We have personally tested, worn, and trust this wader. It is a lot of money, BUT it will most certainly last more than twice as long as any $300 and you can trust it not to let you down. Now this might sound a little corny, but its true "the Simms G4 Pro Wader is truly the benchmark of performance and wader construction"!

What is the advantage of genuine Gore-tex Waders?

Simms is the only wader company that uses genuine Gore-tex material in their waders. It isn't cheap, but it is the absolute best waterproof breathable material available today. There are lots of imitations and at Red's we sell many of these, and some are a great value but none rival real Gore-tex. Without giving you lesson on hydro molecular evaporation, let us explain why Gore-tex is better in a few simple words. It is more durable, trustworthy, breathable, and the serviceability is a huge plus. Gore-tex is easy to repair.

Why are Simms Waders Different?

Seam failure equals wader failure. We have sold lots of brands of waders at Red's Fly Shop over the years, and our guides and shop staff have owned many sets. The number one difference between Simms waders and all other competitors is that Simms waders don't leak in the seams. A leak in a seam in not repairable. A leak in the material is. Once water permeates the seam it travels up or down the seam and exasperates the problem. The process of welding or stitching the seams together is something that Simms is far superior at than any other wader company period. The result is an incredible set of waders that don't fail in the seams.

Simms Wader Buyer's Guide - G3, G4 Pro, and G4Z Zippered Wader

We don't really have a favorite. They all offer about the same value just in some different ways and you will get exactly what you pay for. All are made with Gore-tex and feature a 5 layer Gore-tex construction. The SimmsG3 Wader is our best selling wader many times over. The price is the main reason for this. It features 5 layers of Gore-tex through the thigh which is where most of the abuse takes place on waders. The SimmsG3 Wader is also offered in the broadest array of sizes too. The primary advantages to the SimmsG4 Pro and SimmsG4Z Zippered Waderis that they feature 5 layers of Gore-tex all the way through the pelvis and small of the back. This provides greater protection for the angler sitting on the ground, straddling a log or fence, and giving the waders general abuse. The G4Pro is approximately $100 more than the SimmsG3 Wader. For that $100 you essentially get additional Gore-tex through the lower back and seat along with a better pocket system. The pockets on the SimmsG4 Pro zip shut and are built with zippers that are nearly waterproof. This feature is very nice to have if you row boats because the oar handle tends to catch on the pocket of the SimmsG3 Wader while rowing. It is also a very nice feature to zip the handwarmer pockets shut during a rain storm to keep them dry. Or when its cold and you want to put a warmer packet inside. The SimmsG4Z Zippered Wader is about another $170 more than the SimmsG4 Pro. It has the obvious, a zipper on the front. We have never seen this fail, ever. More and more people are beginning to buy this but it is expensive. At $700 we'll be quite honest in saying we don't sell very many of these. The zipper is a YKK that is bomp proof. At Red's Fly Shop we have personally attempted to get this zipper to leak by twisting, prying, and pulling on it while wading deep. It does not fail. The shoulder strap system is deluxe and is built in a way that will never twist. The wading belt is attached at 3 points around the waist line so you never have to let your belt hang. It stays in place and is a nice feature. The pocket system is the best there is with a total of 4 individual chest pockets that all feature zip closure. It is also a perfect wader for anyone who has trouble getting waders on and off, maybe they are elderly, have a stiff back, or just like the ease of entry and exit. The zippered wader also dries out inside (condensation) because you can unzip it and create greater air circulation inside the wader. In general, the SimmsG4Z Zippered Wader is a stellar wader and yes it is worth the money if you are willing to spend it. We haven't heard any regrets on this one.

I absolutely love these waders&Jacket Worth money! April 24, 2013
Reviewer: NW Steelhead & Salmon Stalker  
Simms waders are unmatched in the industry, hands down bar-none!
I fish 100+ days a year, often hiking 5+ miles through forest, river bank and water with zero complaints about being waterproof, comfortable and stylin! I prefer the G3 & G4 series, yes they're more expensive, but they're worth it!

Made in the USA (and made by Simms) makes all the difference! And no, I don't work for Simms, nor do I receive any endorsements for speaking to my experience with their products - I just fish a lot and love well made gear!

Best Wader on the Market! April 24, 2013
Reviewer: Joe  
I got this wader early October 2012 and used it about 15 days so far on the River and it is built so well, it is HIGHLY breathable, very durable, and the most comfortable wader I have ever worn. The new G4 is as good as it gets!

Incredible December 28, 2008
Reviewer: Joe Rotter from Ellensburg, WA United States  
I was given a pair of these waders from Simms as a prototype several seasons ago and I am AMAZED at how durable and comfortable these waders are.  I have worn lots of different waders over the years including Orvis, Cabelas, Simms Guide Waders, Simms G3 Waders, and the Simms G4 Pro is by FAR the best I have ever had.  Usually I get 1 guide season out of a set of waders before they become a "warm weather" set with lots leaks in the seams and pinholes.  I have 2 1/2 years now on my G4's and they don't leak a bit.   By looking at them you wouldn't know how they don't leak as you can see the wear and tear but 5 layer Gore-tex is tough stuff.

The only downside is they are a bit heavier than a traditional "lightweight" wader but after you wear them a for a few trips the material softens up and breaks in right.
