I also like the design. I have wanted to try a pair of zipper waders for some time. Can’t convince myself the zipper won’t leak so I have not tried them. If you purchase them I hope you post a review.

Never heard of them, but they look good. I also wouldn’t want to trust a zipper like that.

I kind of like the design also. Just saw that if you use the code WD100 it takes another $100 off so for $499 it might be worth a try.

Waterproof zippers have been around for a long time, only recently have they been installed on waders.

My friend bought a set of Tidewe as backups. Not the zippered Tidewe though. He typically wears Sitka. The Tidewe are trash according to him, especially the boots. Ive never worn a pair but would have a very difficult time spending that much on them. Just don't trust em.

I have a pair of Cabela's breathables that have a zipper. It has never leaked so I don't see that as a problem.

The seams on the knee patches and where the fabric meets the boots, on the other hand, leaked pretty quick. They've become my early teal, it's so hot I actually don't mind being wet, just keep the mud out... waders.

Zippers have been on Sitka waders for a few years now.

Zipper does not leak on mine at all, they work as advertised. I have Sitka’s not sure about other brands

Love my waders and zipper is probably my favorite part, don’t have to remove suspenders and jacket to take a leak.

Next time I buy waders I'm seriously going to look at High & Dry. They have a zippered style and supposedly Sitka and a few others have copied them....not the other way around. $500 for their waders.

So High N Dry just released their zipper waders and Sitka introduced theirs in 2018, explain how Sitka “copied” them?

I don’t know that they didn’t copy them just interested to hear the story.

Simms released zipper waders in 2006. H&D was founded 10 years later. No body copied H&D

OP my Simms don't leak but i typically try not to wade that deep

These are on a Black Friday sale now for $399 and you can apply a code for an additional $65 off..

I don’t really need them right now but thought someone might try them for 60% off…

I have two pairs of their waders. One for me and one for my wife both are neoprene. Their shipping is extremely quick and their customer service by email is quick also. I ordered the breathable ones and had to return them. They were absolutely huge on me. I returned them and got the neoprene 600g boots. They ran me 109$ w shipping via FedEx. My wife has a pair also and she loves hers. The higher end ones like what is being mentioned… I can’t speak for. But I do own two pairs by this company.
