    Waist high waders

    Thinking about the Simms G3 waist high or Headwaters convertable. Anyone use them? Thought on difference between G3 and headwaters?

    You mean the Freestones? How long have you had them.

    Re: Waist high waders

    I have the previous generation G3 waist high waders and love them. Going on 5 years of use with no issues. I friend of mine has the Freestones and he is equally as happy with them and they are $200 cheaper, made with the quadralam material which breath nice and hold up well as that is what my Extreme waders are made of. I have about 5 years of winter use on those and no issues to date. You can't go wrong with either, but I would avoid the convertibles, they are bulky.

    Why not just use shorts? The worm in your pants is hardly a snack so I wouldn't worry about any water creatures being interested in that.

    I remember seeing you after a day of wet wading on the upper D. You skin color was that of a Smurf.

    Re: Waist high waders

    Did some wet wading myself yesterday here in NJ for some small brook trout. I knew the water was cold but didn't know how cold till I took the water temp when I left at 1:00pm. It was 46°. Thankfully there was only a few times when I was standing in thigh deep water. Surprising how warm those Simms wading booties keep your feet. Your body heat just warms the water soaked in the bootie like a wet suit.

    At least like everyone else, I don't get shrinkage. Did you notice that?!?!

    Hey by the way looks like Little Italy suffered another fire.
