The G3 Waders are the best wader in the World! I just say the Yellowstone Angler Shootout and it confirms my findings. No wader keeps me more comfortable and dry longer than the Simms G3's. The Leland Staff is great!

I am on the water at least 75+ days a year and my G3 waders are going on their 3rd season without any problems. Comfort and durability are the two attributes that make them by far the best pair of waders I have ever owned. I have been a Simms customer for many, many years and will continue because of great products like the G3 waders.

As far as comfort, style and overall functionality go these waders are far above every other competitor. Unfortunately this will be the second pair in a row that I have had to return for repair due to leaks in the crotch and upper leg area. I have worn this pair less than 20 times. bottom line is, if these would hold up there is no competition, period. I will let you know how repair and service goes.

Stream fishing in Arizona requires quite a bit of hiking into remote areas. Using my Simms G3 Guide waders this past year has allowed me to walk through hazardous terrain with confidence. I have encountered everything from the thickest blackberry briars to rusty barbed wire and have yet to tear or punture them. With 230 trips so far, I have yet to encounter a leak. Absolutely an awesome product!

the "standard to which all else is judged

This is the benchmark for all waders. I've tried them all - Pataguchi, Orvis, Redington, Filson, etc. While I have not tried the G4's I haven't felt it necessary. After several seasons of guiding along the north coast of California both wading and drifting these waders haven't had any major failures. Once a year I check them for briar holes and only find a few. These waders are super-tough. The best way to describe the treatment I give these waders is "abusive". Excellent bang for the buck. I'll definitely buy another pair when these give up - but that could be years from now.
Great Customer Service

Best customer service ever! My older waders (Headwaters) leaked. Nick from customer care (great guy!)gave me an upgrade to the G3 through store credit! The best service of any repair or re-issue. Im sold on staying with this company. Will post another review after I put the G3 through some of washington's bad weather and hard fishing.

I have the limited edition of this wader with the G4Z suspenders. I have a tendency to ride down hills mostly on my ass. I also like to crawl over logs, get down on my knees in the rocks and generally abuse this wader. No holes, not even any scuffs on the outside. These are bullet proof waders, only regret is not buying the G4Z. I could use the 5 layer on the butt and a front zip to relieve myself would be nice.
