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 (to view our layering collection, go here). 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.
Honestly, I've been eyeing them for a few years, but was worried about the initial investment. I had a pair of Simms Headwater waders, but bought these once I wore those out. Once you receive these, you will understood the price. I would encourage you to get to your local fly shop and see the materail for yourself. The quality of these is fantastic, I wore them outside and took a walk around as soon as I received them and the fit was great and didn't rub together when I was walking. Once I got these in the water, I was so glad I ordered them! The flip out pocket is super handy, and can eliminate the need for a vest if you're packing light. The flip out pocket is also something I felt my Headwaters was missing, you can throw your phone, GPS, or camera in there and not have to worry about it getting wet. Also, I prefer the zipper top on the outside pocket opposed to the Velcro pocket on the headwaters, its much easier to access with one hand. The 5 layer GORE-Tex material from the thighs down feels like armor! I was walking through some brush and my buddy in front of me let a branch fly back and hit me, but the material was fine and didn't show any signs of wear or damage. As a tester for GORE, I wanted to make sure I put these through the paces so I could confidently recommend these to other fishermen.
Top quality waders - worth the money. Very comfortable and very warm.
