My pair of Redington Barrierflex are 14 years old approximately and i have patched the small holes and seams enough..its only been the last couple years that i had leaks ..probably due to just throwing them back into my wader bag wet and not hanging them up when i was done each time..my bad.
Well im in the market for a new pair of chest breathables and Redington did me good,also i hear many good things about Simms as well.
I also am thinking the waterproof zipper thing,another forum i am a mamber of ,has had a post with a slew of great replys about the zipper technology.
Redington Sonic Pros or Simms G4Z.
Decisions decisions,guys who have had or have simms what are your thoughts?
I wont even consider Hodgeman,Bailey,or Orvis,i cant seem to find the right sizing in thier models.

Simms. Made in the USA and awesome customer service. Simms waders have a 1 year warranty for anything, no questions asked. I fell and put a hole in the seam on the knee. I sent them in, Simms fixed that hole and gave them a once over fixing every pinhole I wasn't aware of.

I was recommended to try Simms by some very hard core fishermen and haven't looked back and probably never will.

I've been using the Allen waders this season and so far am very happy with them, just something else to consider.

Simms for sure. The only brand of waders I never had trouble with. Their mid range, made in the USA models are well worth the price IMO, and I'm not one to just throw gobs of cash into my equipment. Their stuff is solid so they get my $$$.

Not all Simms waders are made in the US. The Freestone and Blackfoot models are imported. The prices are reasonable on these models but they are not USA made.

The Headwaters models @$300 are Simms least expensive USA made waders. (I have them and love 'em.)

I've had the Redington CPX for about a year now and just sent them back for repair. No leaks, but the cosmetic seam covers on the boot feet were peeling and I was afraid they would damage the seams, plus there is a hole beginning to wear in the heel. My boots are probably too big and rubbing.

Otherwise they're great, and if they send me new ones to replace these cosmetic defects I'll be pretty confident in the company. That said, if I knew I would be mailing them back (and charged $30 for repair plus the shipping to get them there) I may have gone with Simms the first time around.

I'll let you know when I get them back...

I did not know that Simms makes some of their waders in other countries. Sorry for the mistake. I have the G3's. I know they are made in the USA. They are a little pricey but they're basically bullet proof. They are the best waders I've ever owned.

Simms, made in Montana, outstanding quality, sweet looking. Pricey, but you get to be the cool kid on the stream with Simms waders.

Sims without a doubt. Best waders on the market.

Everything Wader related item that I've bought from Simms over the last 2 years was complete garbage. 2 pairs of Vibram boots, both lasted about 6 months until the bottom was worn smooth and falling off. Their customer service sucks, IMO. If you don't own the top of the line stuff they don't want to help. The only thing I have from Simms that has lasted is a baseball hat. I know other forum members have had troubles wwith Simms quality lately, chime in people.
