I just replaced my old set of g4z’s that were over 10 years old and still functional without leak other than compression seepage on neoprene foot. Tried these more waders out in YNP area this year for one week and they functioned perfectly. These new waders are lighter and are more breathable than the original pairs due to the improvement in materials. The zipper is also slightly longer or better placed than the original pair. They say it’s also suppose to be just as durable but Time will tell… I would recommend this wader as it’s refined and meets all the fine requirements of a great set of waders

Having been in the camp of buy cheap waders...this is my first foray into buying a 'high end' set. Always thought 'waste of money'.
Couldn't have been more wrong. These things are worth every penny.
The SIMMS AI bot told me my size...a leap of faith on my part. Was absolutely spot on. I usually go for the x-large...they suggested large King. Spot on fit.
Quality is there...they are quite well built. Time will tell of course. But so far, so good.
Love the straps, much more comfortable than the cheapos.
Overall, very comfortable saying worth every penny. Expensive, for sure. But if I can get 4-5 years out of them, worth it.

I’ve owned Simms g3 waders for years. I got tired of the hassle of stripping down to take a leak. The zipper is a total game changer. We’ll worth it!

These are the best like other reviews have stated. You are paying top dollar but you are also getting one of the best warranties in the industry. I never used Simms b/c their sizing never worked for me (too large of foot booties on a Medium Wader 9-11 when I'm a size 8.5) UNTIL I found out Simms allows you to customize any wader for a small price. Check it out! I bought these G4Zs and sent them to Simms and for $50 they put a totally different foot / bootie on. I wish I had known this a decade ago and hopefully someone finds this helpful.

I bought these after my previous waders ripped after a month of use. The G4s are comfy and durable. I’m used them for 3 seasons without issues.

Absolutely the BEST waders I have ever owned!

Have waded in my new G4Z’s twice and Price per Leak…with the zipper down that is, is priceless! How nice to relieve myself without stripping off gear!
They’re definitely sturdy and well constructed & after my last pair of Orvis waders it’s apparent I’ll never buy that brand of wader again.
The ONLY dig is despite having seemingly endless size combos, an XL with 12-13 stocking foot is all a 6’2” guy with an athletic build & size 13 feet can really fit into, which leaves room for anything from a lap dog to four keys of coke above the belt. I don’t have a lap dog nor have I ever used drugs but hopefully you get the point of how ridiculous the XL’s are! … they’re really designed for a fat guy; fine when you’re bundled in the winter but I suspect these will be too loose fishing in the summer months. Highly recommend but like some of my other reviews, if you’re going to buy here, try on in a local fly shop first where they’re more $$.

I have been wanting a pair of these for a long time. The Short/Large waders fit me perfectly without a bunch of baggy excess. Very well made. The last waders you will buy.

These are, by far, the best waders that I have ever worn. The materials and construction made wading in 45 degree water (Red River, NM) comfortable. The materials are excellent and the fit is perfect. This is top-of-the-line gear!
