largeutfan is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
Always have had good experiences with the Simms Company. When my G3's have worn out, they have either refurbished or replaced for one time after a leak.

tarpon from freestone to g4z

so i wanted a pair of zipper waders, i purchased the freestones for $399.00. they leaked out of the box so i sent them in for repair, they were not repairable. this was early in the year and the new redesigned freestones were supposed to be ready now. they moved the release date to june next year, so they offered me to the only other zipper waders they have, g4z and split the difference. $600.00 for a new pair of g4z's. now they are making them, should be here Dec 21. Just in time, looking forward to them.

A late post here and I do not have experience with the model of waders you are using, but I just wanted to say that Simms is a stand-up company and their customer service is excellent. I am about to ask them to convert my custom neoprene stocking foot waders (for use in Alaska), to boot foot waders, in case I can use them in Texas in the wintertime.

Nooooo!
Boot foot waders are awful.
The stocking foot is the way to go. Walking in mud the wade boots stay on your foot much better. And walking in shell (which is where you should be to catch fish) tears up boots fast. Your waders only last as long as your boots do. So you get the best of both worlds.

Do yourself a huge favor and keep them stocking foot with wade booties.

Wading in boot foot waders is miserable.

Sorry, I forgot to say that I would only be using these waders in fresh water for trout. I don't use waders in the LLM. If it's too cold to wet-wade, then I stay in my skiff.

I would still stay away from the boot foots no matter where you fish (just my opinion). Go with a set of g3, g4, or g4z stockingfoots and get a pair of Simms boots. You won’t regret it

tarpon not a happy camper

so my G4z's arrived yesterday. they are absolutely awesome as i have never owned such a high end piece of equipment. only one problem, at the end of each step, my foot jerks the back of the waders as if they are too short. the ms is a medium small designed for a 31/32 inseam. my inseam is 32 and i think they are two short. need a 33/34 inseam, sucks i need them now. so i'll have to wait for them to open. i bought a pair of new simms in march of this year and still do not have a pair of waders???

I think, but could be wrong, that they are made for people with that inseam. Not necessarily that the inseam is 31/32.
