Compare Low to Mid-Priced Fly Fishing Waders
Modern fly fishing waders are now available at multiple price points and purpose built for durability that coincides with an anglers’ expected use.
We talked about the high-end and most durable waders available a few days ago – check out that article to learn more about those choices at our Bozeman fly shop. However, there are some great values to be had in what we consider the low to mid-range styles available from Orvis and Simms.
Orvis Clearwater - $198
Available in our fly shop in mens sizes, the Orvis Clearwater is feature rich and built with a modern fit to eliminate traditional bulk. Four-layer waterproof breathable nylon fabric is light yet durable, while the opposing side-release buckles allow for waist-high conversion on warm days. When looking for the maximum overall bang for buck the Clearwater Wader takes the cake.
Simms Tributary - $179.95
Simms tributary waders are made for both men and women out of a breathable and comfortable 3-layer polyester upper and a 4-layer lower. Key features include a large fleece-lined, reach-through hand warming pocket for fishing through cooler days, plus a secure chest pocket for keeping tools and fly boxes within close range. Purchase these waders for only $179.95 at our Bozeman fly shop.
Orvis Ultralight - $330
The Orvis Ultralight Waders have been around for a few years now and are available for both men and women. The women’s model was awarded “Best in Show” at “2017 IFTD for Women’s Wader Category” by members of the fly-fishing industry. Packed with great features and utilizing flat-seam construction, these waders have proven themselves as a consumer favorite the last few years.

Simms Freestone - $279.95
Simms Freestone Waders are available for both men and women in standard chest-high waders or zip versions as well. The Simms Freestone waders feature a Toray fabric package for durable breathability. The zippered versions deliver unparalleled comfort and ease when getting in and out of your waders. At ½ the price of other waders with built in zippers, the Simms Freestone waders are certainly worth some serious consideration.
