Why We Built The Flyweight Stockingfoot Pant+ Wader With Simms

Secret fishing spots aren’t always easy to get to, so we made the Flyweight Stockingfoot Pant+ Wader technical and rugged so we can get to ours comfortably. The lower legs feature 4-layer GORE-TEX Pro protection for fully submersible waterproofing, while the upper is composed of a 3-layer Stretch GORE-TEX construction for natural movement through fast-moving waters. We also added robust Hex Air Gravel Guards to extend our coverage, improve moisture management, and pack down much smaller than standard options. Day in and day out, these waders keep us completely dry and moving freely in the river.

  • Versatile, durable waders ideal for long days of casting
  • GORE-TEX technology offers waterproof, breathable protection
  • Self-draining thigh pockets keep your essentials secured
  • Hex Air gravel guards keep debris out and manage moisture
  • Adjustable suspenders offer a secure, custom fit all day
  • Built-in gusset lets you move freely while netting your next catch
  • Made with hands, heart, and soul in Bozeman, Montana, USA, of imported materials
  • Item #BCCZ29J

I've been fly-fishing for 42 years. I remember enduring years of cheap plastic waders that didn't fit just because that is what my Dad bought me when I was a kid, and my Mom made him take me fishing. Once I was old enough to mow lawns, I saved up money and bought one of the first generation Simms brown neoprene waders, made in the mid-1980s. Those Simms waders were my first great pair of waders (they were very hot to wear during the summer). I've been obsessively fly-fishing ever since, and equally obsessed with good fishing gear. Based upon my traumatic, early wading history as a child with cheap, plastic, leaky waders, I'm now an absolute fanatic about buying the best fishing gear I can afford. Last year, I fished 53 days, and I won't suffer poorly made gear anymore. Over the years, I have owned every style of premium Simms and Patagonia waders made. The truth about Simms and Patagonia waders is that they are still both very good... Very good. I bought these backcountry X Simms waders mostly out of curiosity, and my ongoing respect for Simms products. I've never owned legitimate waders with pockets on the outside like these Backcountry waders. To my knowledge, this pair of waders has to be one of the first waders to try pockets on the outside of the wader. I thought that I would probably hate the pockets and that they would rip in a couple of days. I figured if that happened, I would just return these waders to Backcountry. As it turns out, I LOVE those pockets. I change tippets several times a day, and I am able to securely put my old tippet material in one pocket to throw in the trash later. I keep a cold beverage of choice in the other pocket at a cool 47-65 degrees submersed in the water as I am wading, as opposed to the 90+ degree outside air temps. I kind of wanted to hate these waders just to try and prove to my girlfriend that I NEEDED to always be buying the $795-$895 Simms and Patagonia waders. In my opinion, these are one of the most comfortable and breathable waders that I've ever worn. Again, I only have experience with Simms and Patagonia products. Again, in my opinion, both Simms and Patagonia waders remain wonderful products. Truth be told, these Backcountry X Simms waders are also wonderful waders. They are extremely durable, very breathable, and very comfortable. They almost feel like you are just wearing jeans and not waders. I've now fished in these waders 87 days. I still have no leaks, the pockets have not ripped, and I am very pleased with these waders.

So, here it is: These are really great waders and I would highly recommend them. For some reason backcountry just did a collab and picked an incredibly ugly color. If you want to look like an easter egg on the water, here it is.

After getting them wet a few times I can report these have some rad things going for them. The chest is sort of midway, which is going to be really nice here on Utah tailwaters where the water can be too cold for wet wading but its sunny and 75 and you're gonna roast in a full wader. The perforated gravel guards and less fabric overall up top make these super packable for travel or backpacking. Still bomber where it counts as the lower legs are 4 layer and I was confidently knee-creeping on midge slurping trout. The stretch allows more mobility, handy if you fish like I do, and the gusset and quick release buckle help make bathroom breaks easier. Really sweet waders overall, and likely to replace my others except for the deep winter.

It has been a long awaited transition into Spring here in the Wasatch but our latest Collab with Simms has me excited to get back on the water with a cold beer in hand. For our exclusive wader we opted for a Pant + height utilizing the new 3L Stretch Gore-Tex for the upper to give superior comfort and range of motion while featuring 4L GTX in the lower half for added protection and durability. The stretchy thigh pockets securely store your fly box and backup beverage so you're never searching for the essentials. These waders are easily the most comfortable I have ever worn regardless of if you are hiking to your secret hole or simply walking down the bank.

The uppers are still completely submersible and waterproof?
