    SIMMS Freestone Pant waders..

    Just ordered a pair after my Orvis waders starting leaking everywhere...I use the Orvis' about three hundred times...not bad..
    The guy at SIMMS said they wouldn't warranty them after that amount of use, but would try to fix them......
    So, anyone use these "pants"...they aren't Gore-Tex, but some other breathable stuff that is half the cost....They are harder to fix than Gore-Tex if torn, but I hope still a decent product...they are SIMMS after all....
    any input from you BOOBS......

    Wet wade in the summer, you dripping wizard sleeve.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    They are not made in Montana and are no different that any other coated nylon or poly waders. Sac up and buy the G3's. Money is made to be spent, thats why they print more of it each day

    To look good is to fish good

    Re: SIMMS Freestone Pant waders..

    I can't speak to the pants, but I had (have) the full waders. I got two hard years out of them, fishing all four seasons and probably used them at least 400 times. I walk a lot and go off trail most of the time. I can't complain one bit on their serviceability. They do now have a few leaks from all the multi-flora and I replaced them with the G3's. However when I get a chance, I'm going to send them in for repair to have as backups.

    I bought a pair of G3 full waders this year on close out for $240. Come September 23rd and beyond, you should be able to find them for about that price, pants as well.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Those McDonalds by the oil fields in North Dakota are paying $20/ hr. They need people to relocate.


    I picked up last years Reddington Sonic weld wader pants from STP for under $150 with coupon code. Have not worn yet but they look well constructed.
