All Simms, all day, every day. That's one of our mottos here at the Caddis Fly Shop. Why?

Redington: Redington waders represent an excellent means to achieve the best combination of quality and value price. If you are looking for very good waders at great prices, Redington just might be your best choice. We invite you to give the Redington selection a browse.

Redington offers the fly angler a quality and cost effective men's, women's, and youth-sized, chest high, breathable, lightweight wader in the class of Simms and Patagonia.

The Redington waders product line includes several breathable waders in a variety of prices and, listen up, special fit for woman fishers and river workers.

For a modest investment, Redington can put you on of keep you on the water, season in and season out. Are you a fish biologist doing stream surveys? Give Redington waders a try.

Redington makes great fly fishing equipment, gear, and assorted fly fishing stuff at very good price points.

Patagonia Waders: Patagonia is focused on the fishing community; that said, this a highly respected manufacturer has put a ton of emphasis on their innovative ine of waders, and we highly approve of the results. From the H2No technology that is downright waterproof to back-of-leg seams, to suspenders and booties, Patagonia has an absolutely great line of waders and wading boots. The same thinking that has brought together an unexcelled and innovative product line of surfing, skateboarding, and mountaineering gear has not been applied to deliver an outstanding, no-nonsense line of breathable waders to the fly fishing industry.

Wader fit: If you know your wader fit, you’re set already. If you are unsure, please give us a call and our staff will gladly help you choose a good wader fit. We stock or have access to ever wader shape on the planet, given that Simms, Patagonia, or Redington has their supplies on hand. If we don’t have it on the shelves in the back room, we can get it for you right fast.

Waterproofing Technology: Each wader manufacturer may utilize different materials, number of layers, and vary the number of layers on different parts of the wader depending on price and expected season of use. Gore-Tex and H2NO technologies are the foundation of Simms and Patagonia, respectively. Both are really waterproof and durable so you just can’t go wrong.

Durability of waders: Generally, wader durability is directly correlated with price. No wader is puncture proof, so we advise reasonable caution as you scramble around the Briar Patch. Simms, Patagonia, and Redington all manufacture and design waders suited to the demands of modern anglers and people who work around water; they utilize the best technology and materials and are far superior to the waders we wore in days of old.

Suspension System: Many, actually, most of the waders offered by Simms, Patagonia, and Redington include integrated suspenders and some include a wader belt also.

Gravel Guards: Again, the majority of waders these days are of such high quality and also include integrated gravel guards, so please check out the individual wader model to see if they do or do not.

Wader Warranty Service: issues involving manufacturing errors are a no brainer, but are extremely rare. All of the waders we carry come with respectable warranties. All warranties take normal wear into account and note misuse or wader abuse as caveats. We stand by all the waders we sell and are generally to work with our customers to achieve satisfactory warranty service.
