Some Simms Wader models requiring over 150 steps and passing through the hands of 20 plus Simms wader makers, some might consider American-made wader manufacturing a labor of love. That’s because it is. The wader making process is far from easy, and even further from fast. That’s the price we gladly pay to handcraft products with surgical precision from the ground up that enhance every moment you spend on the water.
Manufacturing waders at Simms HQ offers a multitude of advantages, one of which is having the ability to offer a vast array of sizing.
1. The finest materials, including proprietary GORE-TEX®are selected for construction of Simms waders. 2. Size sets are received, patterns are drawn and cut by hand. 3. Belt loops, back labels, reinforcement panels and pockets are pressed on. 4. Body panels are sewn. 5. Seams are taped and patched at the end of every tape run and seam intersection. 6. Suspenders and gravel guards are attached. 7. Stockingfeet are cut, glued, assembled, taped (inside and out) and attached. 8. Every wader is turned inside out, filled with water, proven leak free, then hung to dry. The wader is now ready to be shipped. 9. Simms onsite Repair Center performs maintenance and repairs so you can keep fishing.
