Simms is working to keep our waterways, and the fish that live in them, healthy for now and in the future. Many Simms products now feature CleanStream technology design. This new design philosophy uses materials and production techniques that make it more difficult for dangerous microorganisms to attach to wading gear and makes the gear easier to properly clean. Simms is also working with other fishing industry companies and conservation organizations to develop a certification process to highlight gear designed to help prevent the spread of aquatic nuisance species (ANS) and disease and keep the world's waterways safe and healthy.

Stands up to brutal condtionsI don't fish from a drift boat. Well, rarely anyway. Most of my fishing involves a brutal bushwack into some long forgotten canyon, long approaches, and generally gnarly terrain. These boots hold up as well as can be expected. After three years of heavy use, they do show some separation of the rubber in spots, but still quite functional. I can throw in some insoles and wear with neoprene socks in the summer, or pull the insoles and wear with my waders in colder conditions. The soles are sticky, but I do use studs for wading slick stream beds. Worth the money for anyone who is serious about exploring new water. Fit seems to run big, I ordered down 1/2 size.

When you only need one boot...This boot is just as comfortable on the hike in as it is on the water. Coupled with the Simms booty, you can hike in with these on and not waste time or space in your pack carry your wading boots while wearing your hiking boots. These things are comfortable and fully supported so that long hikes on crooked trails are not a problem. I have used them on rocks, in soft bottom rivers, with fins on my float tube and wet wading and they are awesome for every application. As a tester of hunting and fishing products for Gore I always try to find value and versatility in the products I use to cut down on weight and maximize function. These definitely fit the bill.
