I am a part time fly fishing guide and test gear for GORE. I tend to be hard on my gear and the Simms G4 Pro Stockingfoot Waders are simply fantastic. The 5-Layer GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric in the legs and seat allow for aggressive bushwhacking to the river without at all impeding range of motion or causing overheating. The zippered hand warmer pockets are ideal for a quick thaw of cold hands and the waterproof zippers keep your phone or other valuables high and dry.
My favorite feather of these waders is the flip-out Tippet Tender Pocket. It has enough room to store leader/tippet, indicators, floatant or whatever else you may need for a day on the river. The outside of the Velcro closures also works great for additional fly storage. Just put a few flies on the Velcro you'll need for the day and leave the fly box in the truck!
There are too many features to list in a brief review, but the Simms G4 Pro Stockingfoot Waders are the toughest out there and worth every penny. With the tried and true GORE-TEX fabrics and the Simms design and exemplary customer service, you can go wrong!
