    Re: Simms Waders

    I have a pair of G3 and LL Bean waist high for hot weather. I am still more comfortable in the G3's, The Beans are good but do not let the moisture escape and my pants feel damp after a day in them. The Simms are great. I too went through Orvis and wont go back

    We'll let it slide. Pretty sure a lot of the lower end simms stuff and their jackets are made in China.

I don't think a pair of cabelas would even come close to lasting that long if they were used hard every day.
    I rock cabela guide breathables. I beat the shit out of them and i fish constantly. I pay no mind to where i walk either, and most places I like to go don't have paths. I have had zero problems with them. They are layered and heavy duty. I picked them up for under 2.

    Re: Simms Waders

    Look what the guides are wearing.

    90% wear Patagonia and Simms for a reason.

    The 10% that wear Orvis waders are only doing so because they are out of an Orvis shop, and the waders always look new because they are.

    Not bitter at all. The Maine trip was awesome, I am rested and ready for the shenanigans that wait for me at work. Fishing was non-stop dry fly action on crazy acrobatic 14"-17" average size Landlocks, with a few brute Brookies in the mix. I can't wait to do it again next year.
