Re: Best Waders: Simms Vs. Orvis
Several years ago Fly Fisherman magazine did a extensive test of the available breather waders on the market. The Simms were way ahead on breathabilaty. I bought a pair of the LL Bean Iron Clad or something like that. They didn't have neoprene booties. I sent them back as soon as I got them out of the package. There was no doubt that they were going to be tough but they were way too stiff.
Simm's are the only non-neoprene waders I have owned and I don't see any reason to try another brand.
