Description

A powerful fish pulling hard on the end of the line is one of the best feelings in the world. But ill-fitting waders designed for men can dampen the joy of the experience. For the G3 Guide™ Stockingfoot women's waders, Simms went directly to the source, female guides. The result is a women's specific fit that is tough enough to handle day after day of river abuse. Center-leg seam construction and the legendary quality and durability of Simms' GORE-TEX® G3 material makes these women's waders the total package.

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 some 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.


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.
