If you're like us, you love the lightness and comfort of breathable waders but can't seem to find anything as durable as those old neoprene jobbers you've been wearing since Don King's last haircut. Well there is a solution, one that guides have known about for years: Simms Guide Model Chest Waders. Constructed with a special five-layer Gore-Tex fabric – including Micro Fiber, an incredibly light, yet highly puncture-resistant material designed by W.L. Gore specifically for Simms – these waders will take all the punishment you can deliver and still keep you dry and happy.

We took the Guide Waders out on the Gallatin for a day of wade-fishing. By the time the sun set, we'd covered miles of river, tramping through brush, scraping against trees and rocks, kneeling on dirt and gravel, and generally treating the waders with a high level of disrespect. Back at the truck, we peeled them off and held them up to the light. They looked exactly like our guide friends told us they'd look: brand new. Not a scratch, anywhere.

Okay, we're converted, no more stiff-legging in worn-out scuba suits. Here's the best part: Simms is local and has one of the best warranties in the biz to boot. If you get overly friendly with some barbed wire, all you have to do is jump in the car, swing by the shop, and drop ‘em at the counter.
