Wader Care & Maintenance

Waders should be washed by hand, in a bathtub, in cold water using a powder detergent. Rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry, including the feet. Packaging or storing your waders wet may result in mildew and tape peeling. Simms Waders should not be dry-cleaned or put in the dryer. A water repellent treatment, such as Revivex®, will rejuvenate the water-resistant finish on your waders.

Applying Water Repellent Treatment

After the waders are washed and thoroughly rinsed, saturate the outside of the waders with Revivex® or other water repellent treatment. Allow product to drip-dry. "Set" the treatment with heat using a blow dryer or iron (low setting), avoiding the stockingfoot attachment area.

Repairing Your Simms GORE-TEX® Waders

Tears, punctures and pinholes do happen. Luckily, GORE-TEX® waders are easy to repair. 1) Turn waders inside out. 2) Apply rubbing alcohol to suspect area. Leaks will show as dark gray spots. 3) Immediately apply AquaSeal® to the area and cure for six hours. Please note: this method will not work on seam leaks.

Repairing pinholes

Long-term Storage

It is best to clean the waders and check for leaks before storing. Apply self-repairs for pinholes or contact Simms for the return process for a complete wader evaluation. Dry waders completely before storing to avoid mildew. Store the waders away from heat or direct light. Hung in a closet on a hanger or laying flat under a bed is best for long-term wader storage.

Workmanship & Materials are Guaranteed for the Life of the Product. If a Simms wader fails due to workmanship or material defect during the life of the product, please return it to us for repair or replacement. All defective or damaged waders should be returned to Manic Tackle Project through your Authorised Simms dealer for evaluation and will be repaired, replaced or returned at the sole discretion of Simms Fishing Products. This warranty does not cover damages caused by improper care, accidents or the natural breakdown of materials over extended use and time.

JOHN SIMMS, VISIONARY GUIDE
Simms was founded in 1980 by visionary angler and longtime river guide John Simms. Having spent decades providing clients with life-changing experiences on the world’s most majestic rivers, John realized the waders available at that time weren’t up to the job of keeping the folks he was guiding dry, comfortable and safe on the river. Never mind the guides who, as he did, lived and breathed the sport 150+ days a year. So, he set about creating products worthy of a new generation of anglers who, like him, wanted to get out on the water earlier and stay out longer in any weather.
By the late 80's, John had put his namesake products on the map as the most rugged and dependable waders in the sport. Having set the company on the right path, he was ready to spend more time on the rivers he loved. After all, it was the reason he built those waders in the first place. At the same time, he wanted to ensure Simms would continue to craft the type of high-quality products the brand had become known for and anglers had come to depend on.


K.C. WALSH, REMAKING AN INDUSTRY

In 1993 K.C. Walsh, a lifelong angler raised in a multi-generational fishing family, combined two of his passions, fishing and guiding companies to realize their full potential. K.C. had spent his career helping companies grow and flourish as a management consultant. With K.C.’s rare combination of devotion to the sport and deep management experience, those close to the deal knew Simms would thrive. And thrive it has. In the almost 25 years under K.C.’s leadership, the quality of Simms products has continued to improve, the workforce has continued to grow and the product line has continued to expand.
K.C.’s first order of business back in 1993 was to move Simms' Headquarters to Bozeman, Montana. Relocating to Bozeman put Simms a stone’s throw from some of the most legendary fishing rivers in the world. And where there’s great fishing, there are great fishermen. Simms taps into the experience of these expert anglers, employing them at every level and in every role, from designers, developers and product managers, to wear testers, consultants and craftspeople.


GORE-TEX® WADERS MADE IN BOZEMAN, MONTANA
That first year also saw the release of Simms’ first-ever waterproof, breathable wader featuring GORETEX® construction. The wader was a groundbreaking success and would prove to be the beginning of a long and productive partnership between Simms and W.L. Gore & Associates. Since then, Simms has become known as a place the fishing industry looks for the latest advances in GORE-TEX technology.
In 2012, Simms expanded its presence in Bozeman with a new 60,000 square-foot facility housing its corporate headquarters and wader production facility. The expansion has provided elbow room to drive product development, solidified Simms as the sole fishing wader manufacturer in the USA and showcases our unwavering commitment to high quality, U.S.-based manufacturing. Today, Simms is recognized as a global leader in the fishing industry and employs more than 180+ at its Bozeman headquarters.
