Default Wader Help

Ok, so I'm looking at new waders... I'm a stocking foot guy. I'm buying some Korker wading boots too but I have those picked already

Looking at Gulf coast Waders and Gator Waders

Who has experience with these? Thoughts?

Donít have any exp with those brands, Iím a SIMMS guy. After going through cheaper pairs every 1-2 years I sucked it up and bought some G3ís a few years ago, best coin I ever spent.

Went the cheap route for years on waders that eventually leaked. Like muddyfuzzy, I finally got tired of the leaks and bought a pair of Simms stocking boots. Best investment ever and no more leaks after many years of use.

Nothing was worse that jumping into cold water after trout and feeling you foot get cold

Sitka. If something happens they pay for shipping both ways and service it.

If you think you like boot foot you have never had a pair of waders and GOOD boots that actually fit. I'll never go back

I'll look at the others

Still wondering if anyone has used those two brands

Whoever said sitka your f-ing crazy

$1000 for waders that the first review on THIER SITE talks about them failing do to a rip and sitka won't call them back.

Sorry the crap I crawl through there is going to be a failure just how long and when

For 1000 if mine last 2 years a piece I can be ahead money getting a new pair every 2 years. I have a hard time believing they will last 5+ years with zero leaks in the briars and stuff I go through

I bought a pair of Simms Headwaters Pro’s last year. Those, the G3’s, and G4’s are made in the USA. Don’t buy their entry level stuff and think you’re getting the real deal.

I haven’t duck hunted in mine yet but I’ve considered wearing my pair of Dan’s briar chaps over them to keep the legs from getting ripped up.

If your poor like me, try the Frogg Toggs. They warranty them for a couple years and you don't have to sell a kidney. If you have the money, Simms.

I have been out of it a few years but when I was guiding Kobuk were the only waders that elated us multiple years.

Their return and service process is fairly simple and easy to understand. The guy who posted that obviously didnít read it. Tells you specifically not to call as they are short staffed. Print the label and send them in. Have had mine repaired once and was a simple process.
