Why We Like The G3 Guide Stockingfoot Wader

If you spend more of your waking moments submerged mid-thigh in a river casting out to sipping fish like we do, then invest in the G3 Guide Stockingfoots Wader. 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. 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.


  • Waders for anglers who spent all day on the water

Too tight. Do not buy.

My pair has a definite design flaw. The stocking foot are way too tight. They are near impossible to take off without getting another person to pull on them. I doubt they will last long the way I have to struggle to get them off. Do not buy! I have been wearing my old pair of Simms even though they have a leak. Rich Fernandez

Very nice

Perfect fit. Just spent 5 days on a fast flowing stream with very good results. Previous G3 guide pair was purchased in 2010 with hundreds of miles on them. Stockings finally wearing out so sent them back for repair and will be used as " backup"

Simply The Best

These are the best waders on the planet. Mine are the previous version introduced in 2018. They fit like no other wader and they perform like no other wader. I have never had a leak. I had them customised with a different bootie size for a modest additional charge. My advice is don’t sit down on anything with spikes and don’t march through any bushes with spikes. That seems like common sense to me. Superb waders. I anticipate writing an equally positive review of my waders in several years time. Worth every penny (I live and fish in Scotland) or cent.

G3 Waders

I am a fish biologist in Washington State and wear waders pretty much two thirds of the year conducting stream and river surveys. I have owned several pairs of Simms waders and love the durability, flexibility, and breathability of the G3's. They are surprisingly rugged and have held up bushwhacking through blackberries, salmonberries and devils club, which can shred lesser waders.

So ??????

Could not be more disappointed. It was not easy to afford these waders. But I told myself that they would last and the price would be worth it. After less than 10 trips out, mostly in a raft for that matter. My waders leaked all over me on a February day resulting in a ruined trip. Simms used to stand for quality. What happened?

Love your waders and they will love you

The G3's continue to get better and better. Super durable and comfortable too. Also, the performance of your waders, particularly the seams, are dependent on after care. ALWAYS hang dry, inside and out, away from UV exposure and these will last even the most rugged conditions.

Okay but doesn't fit as well as previous pairs

This is my 4th pair of small king G3 waders. The sizing has changed and they no longer fit as well. I'm unable to cinch the suspenders up enough to keep the crotch from hanging so low that it doesn't feel "short crotched." The suspenders can't be shortened enough because of the pad that slides along the suspenders.

Air tight

I’ve owned three pair of G3’s over the course of the last 16 years. They are great waders. One thing I noticed on my new ones is they seem to trap air in them very bad until I step into the water. Making wearing them in truck on the way to river impossible.

The best wader I have ever worn

The fit and durability of the G3 are hands down the best I have owned. They are breathable and perfect for spending long days on the water no matter the conditions
