Durable, weatherproof, women-specific waders with Gore-Tex Pro shell fabric for those ladies that live and breathe to fish.
It's official. You've caught the fly fishing bug and now spend more days out on the water than your partner, so invest in a pair of waders that actually fit your womanly physique with the Simms Women's G3 Guide Stockingfoots Wader. This women-specific wader features a higher chest and patented front/back leg seam construction for a comfortable, all-day fit. Built with Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric and Gore taped seams, the G3
provides unbelievable waterproof protection and breathability to ensure
the ultimate comfort while you fish. Simms' exclusive 5-layer Gore-Tex
Pro fabric is found in the seat, waist, and throughout the leg for
rugged durability and absolute protection, and there's 3-layer Gore-Tex
Pro in the upper part for greater comfort and breathability. Its nylon
YKK zippers minimize corrosion and provide high-performing, durable wear
for years to come.
Simms also gave the G3 its patented front and back leg seam design which allows for unprecedented amount of mobility and leg articulation in the wader while eliminating seams from the inner leg critical wear zones. The G3 Guide is designed to easily convert to a waist-high wader for versatility in any fishing environment while articulated knees ensure maximum comfort and mobility as you reel in your catch. Adjustable elastic suspenders with opposing buckles and built-in low-profile belt loops also ensure a comfortable, secure, and just-right fit.
Built-in gravel guards feature 2-millimeters of
high-density, abrasion-resistant neoprene with stainless steel boot
hooks and a reinforced attachment design while anatomically-engineered,
hourglass-shaped, 4-millimeter neoprene stockingfeet offer a better,
more comfortable fit. To help keep your small essentials readily
accessible, Simms incorporated a removable flip-out tippet tender pocket
with dual-entry zippers and retractor docking station, a zippered chest
pocket, and integrated utility tabs for convenience. In addition, a
reach-through hand-warmer pocket with storm flaps and micro-fleece
lining furnishes incredible comfort when your fingers are icy cold.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
I have had these waders for a year now and I can honestly say that they are the best waders I have ever purchased. I am a product tester for GORE-TEX and have had the opportunity to try different waders and these are by far my favorite.
I live in Island Park, Idaho and fish the Henry's Fork almost everyday so I really need a pair of waders I can depend on and I must say that these have been outstanding.
Not only do I love how tough and durable they are, but they fit perfectly and are so quiet while walking down the river. Being that I am 6 foot tall I ordered the long pair and they are just the right length, so I feel the size chart is very accurate.
The only thing I would change about these waders would be to add a fly patch in the front pocket, which is a very minor detail.
Overall, I feel these waders are amazing. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new pair.
I'm 5'6" and need xl size. How long are they. Ty
Hey Eileen - The inseam on the XL will be 31-32 inches for these G3 Guide Waders. Check out the Patagonia Spring River Waders (Item #PAT01A9) which comes in an XL/Petite with a 30 inch inseam. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
