Great comfortable lightweight wader that performed in the water, hiking, & scrambling banks and boulders.

Like many woman I looked for waders for months and was kinda skeptical eyeing these at STP for weeks. Locally I tried many different ones and apparently some 2015 models may not be available until mid-summer. After testing these out I am glad I got these!
I am a more curvy 50+ Yr old active woman whom after kids no longer wears a sz 7.
These lightweight durable (4 layers of breathable fabric) waders are incredibly well made and fit like a loose pair of jeans with plenty of room to layer for cooler fall/ spring wading. I love the rugged zipper design that let me get in and out of these easily and offers flexibility to roll down on warm days.

I bought a sz XL and the neoprene booty seem to run 1-2 sizes big so I even bought a size smaller to see if the booty would fit my foot better ( it did) ;but they did not pass my full squat/lunge test and I did not think I would hike and scramble stream banks/rocks comfortably.
A local guide encouraged me to try the news Simms Vapor boot in a SZ. 10 to accommodate the bigger booty despite me wearing a 9 -91/2 in most shoes. This was a great fit especially in the water wading our local canyon creek and I HAD the rugged stability I needed for sure footing on the trail, bank and rocky creek. I had NO seam irritation!!
The articulated knees are great and despite the awkward low wader belt at the hip vs the waist, I loved these comfortable well fit waders.
I layered my feet with my favorite Merino wool Kirkland hiking sock which also help the booty fit and I was warm and comfortable recently fishing after a Colorado spring snow .The muddy scuffs easily washed off with my hose and after laying them out overnight they were dry by mid morning the next day.
Do not wonder or hesitate about these any longer ... Buy them before they are gone and successfully fish on!
