I own the Simms G3 convertible waders and RiverTek boots with the BOA. I think they are absolutely bulletproof. I wish they made Duckhunting waders still...

I have used high end Orvis, Cabelas, and now Simms waders. I like the Simms the best by far and I fish about 100 days a year.

I think Cabelas has the best return policy on Waders though.

Just an update on the Simms Boa boots and G3 Convertible waders that I sent in to be evaluated and repaired.

Simms replaced the boots and upgraded me to the Guide Boots. They also did major repairs on my waders... I cannot believe that they were actually able to repair the waders since they had so much damage but they held up pretty good for me this past weekend. I don't know how long the waders are going to hold up, maybe only through the winter.

I was going to advise that when you buy simms waders and register them with simms they send you an email at the end of the first year and will make any repairs free of charge, even rips.

Thanks Jdaddy, did not know that... they repaired the waders free of charge. I am okay with how it is working out.

I have a pair of Frogtogs....Got holes in them within a year....I still used them for quite some time. Was watching TV commercials about the "Flexable Rubber in a can." (That's the one that they spray the screen door and put it in the bottom of a boat and show it doesn't leak.) and thought... I'd try it out to see if it would work with waders. the truth is it did stop many of the leaks, but not all, and it made the waders really stiff and difficult to put on.
So if your thinking about this idea. Remember you heard it from me first.

My backup waders are Froggtoggs... I swear the first pair that I owned leaked the first time I set foot on the water and I don't mean a small leak.... no the entire right leg of my wader filled up with water. Sent them in under warranty and the new pair leaked badly after 3-4 outings.

I am pretty much done with Froggtoggs forever. I have heard other people have had good experiences with them. I wish I could say my experience was good.

silicone sealant in a tube will also work in a pinch, but it will eventually peel up.

My Frog Toggs have held up well for two years, maybe 100 trips. Only one really off trails, but that's where I got the pinholes. The Aquaseal has worked really well for a year, except some of the repairs began to peal within the last month.
