The Simms Headwaters Convertible Waders are specifically designed for optimum performance. The Simms Headwaters Convertible enables you to decide between top up or down fishing dependant on your personal preference. If you prefer to fish by wading, then you can appreciate the chest-high capabilities. However, you can also appreciate the waist-high comfort of the Simms Convertible waders.
These Convertible Waders by Simms offer some great features such as the easy-breathing benefits of a GORE-TEX 3-layer Pro Shell technology, combined with the mobility and abrasion resistant skills of front leg-seam construction that will offer you a wonderful wading experience. The convertible wader waistband now comes with integrated belt loops with a 2-inch elastic belt that now features an all new Simms Trout buckle.
Benefits of using the Simms Headwaters Convertible Waders as Chest Waders
By using the Headwaters Convertible Waders as chest waders is undeniably the most resourceful option because chest waders provide the best protection against the elements thus enabling you to endure nearly everything imaginable that nature can throw at you.
For example, if you are wearing the convertible waders as chest waders, then if you are fly fishing and run into unexpected holes or other encumbrances, then you are fully dressed and prepared for that occasion. Additionally, wearing these waders as chest waders can be of great value if you run into high currents, waves and fish landings that prove to be difficult. Additionally, added protection from wind and other elements.
Benefits of using the Simms Headwaters Convertible Waders as Waist-High Waders
By using the Headwaters Convertible Waders as waist-high waders you can benefit from the fact that these waders will provide more coverage than hip waders and not be as restrictive as chest waders. When you don't need the advantages of the chest waders, then transforming these convertible waders into the waist waders will provide you with added comfort and breathability that may just hit the spot during your fly fishing adventure using these Simms Convertible Waders.
