Simms Watershed Stockingfoot Wader

Made-in-the-U.S.A. from upcycled Gore-Tex to generate revenue in support of the Yellowstone River.

Simms Watershed Stockingfoot Wader

$600 | simmsfishing.com

This brand new, limited-edition wader was created in response to the devastating floods on the Yellowstone River in the spring of 2022. Wanting to help, and after a few brainstorming sessions at the Bozeman-based factory, Simms decided to use upcycled Gore-Tex fabric from other product lines and built a made-in-the-U.S.A. wader that would generate revenue specifically for a group working to preserve and restore the health of the Yellowstone River. They’re calling it the Simms Watershed Stockingfoot Wader.

The waders are based on the same pattern as the award-winning G3 Guide Wader, but with a different lightweight 3-layer breathable Gore-Tex fabric in the upper wader and an ultra-rugged 4-layer lower portion from the waist down. This upper is extremely breathable and easy to move around in. The 4-layer legs are tough and durable—built to handle sticks, thorns, hooks, rope seats, and whatever else you can throw at them.

Watershed Waders have an oversized, camouflage-pattern stretch-woven zippered chest pocket, and a microfleece-lined, zippered, handwarmer pocket. The adjustable suspenders come with opposing buckles for waist-high conversions, and they have Simms’ patented front and back leg seams. The waders have anatomically correct left and right stockingfeet with an antimicrobial finish, integrated gravel guards, and are available in 13 sizes.

Through the sales of this special Simms Watershed Stockingfoot Wader, Simms will make a $50,000 contribution to Montana Freshwater Partners (MFP), in support of the Yellowstone River Stewardship Campaign. MFP, a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Livingston, Montana, will use the money for conservation and restoration projects to improve water quality, fish habitat, late-season flows, and floodplain connectivity, as well as responsible management of increased recreational pressure. These funds will be used in collaborative projects with local nonprofit organizations such as the Upper Yellowstone Watershed Group, Park County Environmental Council, Trout Unlimited, and others, working in partnership with the Montana Department of Natural Resources; Natural Resource Conservation Service; Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks; Custer Gallatin National Forest; and Bureau of Land Management.
