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 - Simms offers 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.

Simms Flyweight Waders
I have only worn them around the house so far. I wish Simms would make a Medium King in the size 13 foot. I bought the large with the 13 foot and the chest is a size 44 vs. a 42 in the king. They have a little stretch to them which is nice for moving around. I think I prefer having a drawstring in the chest vs. the two zippers. The belt is a bit heavy and too much material and I will probably replace it with something thinner to cut down on bulk and weight (I usually go backpacking when I am fishing to get away from the crowds). Other than all of my complaints above, they are good waders and the feet are comfortable and they go well with the Simms Flyweight felt boots. Stillwater filled the order ASAP and I highly recommend them.

I have fished these waders a number of times and absolutely love them. They are lightweight so they are excellent for hot summer days. The color is perfect and the 511 hex grid is a great addition.
