The First Repair Is On Us. At Simms, we stand behind everything we make. But, from time to time, we all take a tumble in the pursuit of fish. If you accidentally damage your Simms wader during the first year that you own it, the first repair is on us. Go here to begin the repair process. To allow us to better serve you, please include a copy of your receipt when sending your waders.

Further, we will only charge you our actual cost for any additional repairs that you may need during the life of your wader. Our Repair Department is not a profit center. Simply bring the wader to your dealer or create a Return Authorization number and begin the repair process here. Once the Return Authorization number is created, we will work with you to repair or replace your waders.

Wader Care & Maintenance

Waders should be washed by hand, in a bathtub, in cold water using a powder detergent. Rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry, including the feet. Packaging or storing your waders wet may result in mildew and tape peeling. Simms Waders should not be dry-cleaned or put in the dryer. A water repellent treatment, such as Revivex®, will rejuvenate the water-resistant finish on your waders.

Applying Water Repellent Treatment

After the waders are washed and thoroughly rinsed, saturate the outside of the waders with Revivex® or other water repellent treatment. Allow product to drip-dry. "Set" the treatment with heat using a blow dryer or iron (low setting), avoiding the stockingfoot attachment area.

Repairing Your Simms GORE-TEX® Waders

Tears, punctures and pinholes do happen. Luckily, GORE-TEX® waders are easy to repair. 1) Turn waders inside out. 2) Apply rubbing alcohol to suspect area. Leaks will show as dark gray spots. 3) Immediately apply AquaSeal® to the area and cure for six hours. Please note: this method will not work on seam leaks. If you think you have a seam leak, click here to return your waders for repair.

Long-term Storage

It is best to clean the waders and check for leaks before storing. Apply self-repairs for pinholes or contact Simms for the return process for a complete wader evaluation. Dry waders completely before storing to avoid mildew. Store the waders away from heat or direct light. Hung in a closet on a hanger or laying flat under a bed is best for long-term wader storage.

Vibram® Resoling Resources

You will have to work directly with this list of authorized centers for all replacement soles. The list of authorized centers is listed on the the StreamTread™ page.
