Why We Like The Simms Freestone Z Stockingfoot

Built to keep us warm and dry on the water, Simms' Freestone Z Stockingfoot adds a waterproof center zipper to these popular waders. The 4-layer Toray fabric is rugged to handle overgrown river trails and deliver durable waterproofing for multiple seasons of wading. When nature calls, the convenient TIZIP zipper lets us take a whiz without removing our waders and upper layers, so we don't waste precious fishing time dressing and undressing. In the Simms Stockingfoot series, we don't need to worry about getting wet. All we need to do is slide our wading boots on—and slip the built-in gravel guards over them—and hit the water with our favorite dries or nymphs.

The best value for casual anglers

I have now had three pairs of Freestone waders, the last of which was the zip model and I do believe the convenience of the zipper justifies the cost differential. I probably spend around 75 days a year in waders with around half of these being hard use days consisting of climbing over rocks, busting brush, and hiking. At this level of use, the Freestones have lasted me 2-3 seasons before they are at the end of their service life and I find this very acceptable for the price point. All of the waders ultimately failed in high abrasion zones in the seat/crotch/between thighs due to the waterproof membrane layer becoming worn and delaminating from the other layers and tearing. This may sound bad, but after hundreds of miles of abrasion and wet-dry cycles this is all one can expect from Toray fabric in a properly fitting and cared for wader. The 4 layer Toray is fairly puncture-resistant. Despite most of the thorns and brush contacting the 4 layer portion, most of the pinholes would be in the thinner upper portion. Overall, I was very pleased with the durability and features of the Freestone line for the price point, but have since upgraded to a Gore-Tex wader. If you expect to put as much wear and tear on a pair of waders as I do, then you may consider doing the same, but for causal anglers looking for a solid and feature rich offering you've found the best value with the Freestones.

Streamgagers delight!

My favorite waders! Ease of getting into/out of with zipper + durable knee and lowers super suitable for my work measuring rivers. I don't mind being in these all day and with the right layering good for field work no matter the weather.

Great Quailt, Fit, And Feel.

I had the previous generation Freestone Waders and they took 3 years of abuse, 3-4 days a week on the water and exceeded my expectations. I recently bought the new Freestone Zs and they are fantastic! The stitching makes for a better feel and better mobility. The fit, flex, and new gravel guards are top notch. The storage pockets are nice along with the tool docking area. The zipper is heavy duty and is convenient allowing for easy in and out and will be useful when nature calls. I have no complaints. I look forward to many, many days on the water with these waders!
