      Simms ExStream™ Bootfoot Waders


      I got my Simms ExStream™ Bootfoot Waders January 9, 2017, and between then and the Sandy River Spey Clave, May 13, I lived in them 56 long hard days of guiding. The first two months of 2017 were grueling weather conditions of snow and torrential rain. The next two months were just torrential rain. Even weather at the Clave in May was extreme, the perfect conditions for wearing (testing) waders made specifically for extreme fishing conditions. Then the weather mellowed, and I went back to my stocking foot waders. Let me tell you straight, Simms got it right this time! These waders were made for guys like me who fish for winter steelhead in Oregon. Every guide I know who got a pair are in love with them.


      My pair is complete with a Relief Zipper, which runs cross-wise of the body at the perfect elevation for men to relieve themselves. At first my clients thought that the perpendicular zipper looked peculiar. But, all were soon envious, because I didn't have to take my jacket of to urinate. That is a huge advantage when it is raining. Matter of fact, that is a huge advantage in any weather condition. Kind of like having a safe door on the jewels. Seems as though, the horizontal receives less stress than a vertical one. So far no leaks, anywhere. Simms offers the Relief Zipper as a custom option. It is worth the extra money. I don't know all the details yet. MB

      DESCRIPTION

      Built to best-selling G3 Guide™ specs, the ExStream™ Bootfoot Wader brings comfort, warmth, and cutting-edge performance to blunt-force conditions. Structural strength starts with waterproof/breathable 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro Shell uppers and 5-layer legs featuring patented front and back leg seams for an articulated fit and maximized comfort and mobility. Two zippered reach-through micro fleece-lined pockets protect frigid hands, the zippered chest pocket boosts storage, and a removable flip out Tippet Tender™ pocket increases capacity for key fishing pieces. Adjustable 1.5-inch elastic suspenders with opposing YKK® buckles allow for easy waist-high conversion and built-in low-profile belt loops are now burlier and wider. The boot story begins with an ultra-gripy, fully-integrated proprietary design. Rugged triple-layer vulcanized rubber maximizes durability and wading performance in extreme conditions. Insulated 7mm neoprene lining (rated to -40 degrees F.) with grid-fleece moisture management keeps hardworking feet dry, happy, and comfortable. The design includes a 12 mm felt outsole, cleat plates for max rigidity and stud retention as well as dual density eva midsole for shock absorption. Additional stability provided by removable Right Angle® Footbeds that optimize underfoot ride.

      TECHNOLOGIES

      GORE-TEX® PRO SHELL outerwear is waterproof, exceptionally lightweight and offers the ultimate in breathability, durability and extended comfort. Constructed with a woven backer, GORE-TEX® Pro Shell garments slide easily over other layers and offer exceptional tear strength and internal abrasion-resistance.


      GORE-TEX® Wader Care:

      The #1 tip to prolonging the life of a wader is drying your waders. It is important to dry your waders out after each use. We recommend drying the inside first (if damp) and then the outside. When drying the outside you can pull your gravel guards up until the feet are dry and then flip them down to dry the rest of the wader

      Washing - Use a front load machine or hand wash. Use cold water and normal detergent that does not contain bleach. Once you have washed the waders make sure you dry them properly start by drying the inside first.

      Never put your waders in the dryer, the heat will adversely affect the seam tape on your waders and will void your warranty.

      Fit - We offer more sizes than anyone, a good fit goes a long way to extending the life of your wader. Make it clear that people should use their exact measurements as we have already provided extra room for layering and movement.

      General Care - Do not store inside your car for long periods of time excess heat will damage your waders.

      Use A Mat - Always put your waders on using a protective mat to shield the neoprene feet from rocks. The Headwaters gear bag for example has a pull out mat that works great for this.

      Proper Layering - Do not wear jeans under your waders. Jeans are highly abrasive wearing on your waders from the inside out. More importantly jeans and sweatpants do not transfer moisture away from the body. Use proper layering. Using layers such as these will help wick moisture away from your body and assist in the waders ability to breathe.

      Stains - most stain removers will work fine on our waders. As long as the stain remover does not contain bleach you should be o.k.
