Simm's Headwaters, made in USA, are a little less expensive than the G3s and are good waders.
Nothing Simm's is cheap.

I don't know anything about the Orvis waders but in general they make quality gear.

I have a pair of Orvis neoprene waders that I used in Missouri trout fishing and in Alabama duck hunting. I've had them quite a long time and they are still in good condition. They are the stocking foot variety.

Simms g3 are the most comfortable out there. I’ve done the cheap thing where you go through a set a season if you fish as much as I do and if these last 5 years I’ll be a ways ahead. If you don’t want to spend 550$ then get a set of gulf coast waders which are good for the money I believe $180 or so for the nicer set. Anything else cheaper is disposable to me.

Simms or Patagonia. Remember it’s not always about the material, it’s ahout the stitching holding up. Simms has the best reputation and customer service. Patagonia has a gel like substance around the knees that is super comfortable, almost like a soft knee pad. But it doubles as a sealant if you get a pinhole in that area and closes the leak. Have not owned a pair but did try some on at a fly shop out of curiousity. Would consider either or.

I don't own any Orvis Waders, nor have I had them in the past. What I know about anything I've purchased from Orvis (though I may have not found the right stuff from their line), is that it tends to be more tailored to the freshwater market and doesn't stand up well to the elements and abuse that saltwater angling entails.

But in that price range, you are probably better off either going down in price range and getting 2 pairs for the same money, or going up to Simms and paying $200 more, but getting 2-3 times the lifespan.

Simms Gore-Tex breathable stockingfoot waders undoubtedly deliver the best quality and durability at every price point; Headwaters $449, G3 Guide $549, G4 Pro $749, and G4Z $849. Their product guarantees and repair services are second to none in the industry that I am aware - plus they are the only waders made in the good old USA! Outstanding products but may not fit everybody's budget.


My second choice for stockingfoot breathables would be Gulf Coast Waders (gulfcoastwaders.com). Their standard model runs $169 and they are a Houston-based company run by a family team. I have several friends that swear by them!
