Simms G3 Guide Stockingfoot Waders Reviews

Simms G3 - Best wader I ever used Review by AL
Posted on 4/11/17
I been using a Redington Sonic Pro wader and the Patagonia Rio Azul waders for the last years. Last January I went to New Zealand for trout fishing and the local guide gave me a Simms G3 wader (you can not take your waders because of dydymo ) I was really impressed ! I used it on cold early mornings (6am on the water) and on warm middays (30ºc) Very comfortable. Incredibly light. 100% secure. Great pocket storage. As soon as I returned home I bought a Simms G3 stocking foot wader for myself. I think is the best wader I ever used.
You get what you pay for Review by KW

These are the most expensive waders I've ever purchased. They are also the most well made, best fitting and most comfortable waders I've ever purchased. I believe they will be the most durable but want to log more time in them to substantiate this.

I'm 6' 1", 175 lbs and wear a size 10.5 shoe; the large 9-11 size fits me nearly perfectly. The booties are the most comfortable I have ever worn and the gravel guards the best I've seen.

Love the and-warmer pocket design and clever storage options. I live/fish in the Southeastern US and have comfortably fished in these on days and the high 60's as well as high 20's.

I believe this product delivers as advertised. Cost of a product and value of a product are two different things. I've used much less expensive gear that I found to be of less value as this product really delivers. As stated, you often get what you pay for.

As well, it feels good to me to support a US company employing US craftsmen proudly making a great product. Watch their video "The Wader Makers." Good stuff.

Buy with confidence.
Bombproof Quality, Innovative Design Review by TexNewMex

I researched long and hard before I pulled the trigger on these. At 500 bucks a pop, they better be the best. And they are.

I've probably put in close to 100 days on my G3s and they're still going strong. Here are the reasons I think they're the best on the market:

1) Quality: Made in the USA, backed by a great warranty

2) Toughness: I do a lot of backcountry bushwhacking and these waders take a beating and keep on going. The 5 layer legs, and 4 layer uppers have stood up to brush, thorns, stray hooks, falls, sliding on rocks without even any sign of abraiding.

3) Comfort and Fit: Goretex fabric breathes amazingly well and the range of sizes Simms offer is better than any other competitor. For the first time, I have a pair of waders that actually fit my short, stocky frame.

4) Design: the fold out tippet tender/tool pouch is a game changer. It keeps all my tools and tippet at my fingertips without having to put on a heavy vest. I stick a small fly box in the front pouch, and I'm ready. These waders are a minimalist's dream.

A few small quibbles:

1) The fold out tool pouch is easy to accidentally pee on when you hike down the waders to answer nature's call.

2) The handwarmer pockets are difficult to access because they have flaps covering the entrances. (meant to prevent snagging when operating drift boat oars, but pretty useless to us hoofers)

3) One of the nylon tabs for attaching tools ripped through on mine, causing me to lose a zinger with my nippers etc. This may have been partially my fault for forcing a zinger that was too big, stretching the hole, but I was still irked.

Overall, you'd be hard pressed to find a better pair of waders. If you are only an occasional fly fisher, you'd do better to buy something less spendy. However, if you are and avid fisher who spends every free day on the water, I highly recommend investing in a pair of the G3s.
Absolutely Love them Review by Joe

I recently upgraded from the "Headwaters" waders to the G3 and I cannot be more happy with my decision.

The "Headwaters" are 3-ply Gore-Tex and the G3's are 5-ply; however, the G3's are MUCH more flexible and comfortable.

The articulated knee makes moving around a breeze and the overall quality construction/durability can easily withstand long hikes through brush and scraps along rocks with no breakdown.

These waders are amazing.

I primarily fish in Virginia, where we will have 90 degree summers and 25 degree winters and these perform equally well in both conditions. As intended, the Gore-Tex breathes extremely well and does not get damp on the inside in warmer weather, but keeps your bone dry and warm in the colder conditions as well.

The only con, if I had to think of one, has nothing to do with their "on water" performance...they are a bit cumbersome to pack. If you travel or fly a lot, which I do not very often, but they do not pack down easily and take up a lot of space in luggage.

That aside, I recommend these waders to anyone in the market for a new pair.

Lastly...warranty/repair. The Simms company has one of the best customer service departments i have ever encountered. In an era where the "service" is lost is "Customer Service" they are overly helpful and turn around repairs in a quick fashion.

I have not had any problems with these waders, but when I had a leak in my Headwaters, the whole repair process was very easy and hassle free. Your first repair is free and they pay for shipping (both ways). Shipping from VA to MD, it took about 10 days to fix and receive the waders back...amazing.

Great job Simms, this product is why your name holds its own in the fishing world.
All the hype is true! Review by Wayne

I bought these right after having bought some cabelas guidetech waders, because I heard they were comparable. This couldn't be further from truth. The Simms G3 are truly incredible. The stockings are so comfortable and fit my feet without a lot of excess bulk in the ankle. The quality of the materials is easily felt and seen. The durability is unmatched. They breath as well as any waterproof fabric I've used. The tippet pocket is very handy and the hand warmer pocket gets used more than I thought it would. Don't waste your money on a bunch of cheap pairs of waders that aren't comfortable and wear out quickly. Just buy these once.
Awesome waders - my choice Review by Wojciech
Posted on 10/10/14
I have been using these waders for ten years. I had the previous two models and I have the latest model of these waders. I have never had any problems with them. The waders look awesome. Simms have the best design on the market. They are made from 5 and 3 layer of Gore-Tex. These waders have an incredible breathability, I use them even on very hot days. The price is similar to other good companies. They are absolutely the best waders for me.
