Hey guys,
So I finally had to put down my Old Trusty Simms waders. They sprung a compression leak in the left heel. I guess I just wore the suckers out! BUT!... by my recollection they are at least 15 years old, and hundreds of hours of fishing fun, pretty good use if you ask me. I have many great memories in those old buggers.

Anyways!,... so I purchased a brand new set of Simms Headwaters Convertible Stockingfoot waders. (about $400)
Check them out at the Simms site.

I especially like the Convertible feature. The upper portion of the waders can be rolled down to your waist for warm weather, toobing or tooning, or just knocking around comfort. (very popular with the guides) This came in very handy in the summer weather we had at Crowley this weekend. If you examine the quality of the materials, design, construction, and comfort, you will see that they are by far the best waders on the market. Unfortunately this comes at a premium price. They are also the most expensive. But I figure if I can get another 15 years out of this pair, it is worth it. My only criticism of this particular model is that the chest pocket is very small. (I guess convertibility comes at a price) I can get my wallet and car keys in it but that's about it. Boo. Otherwise after a weekend of toobing and walking the Upper Owens (a couple of miles worth!) I am very happy my old ones wore out! Hee Hee

It's pricey up front but if u break it down month by month it'll cost u $2.22 per month for 15 years. In that case what a bargain! Smile
