Simms was founded in 1980 by John Simms, who was just a fishing guide at the time. He knew first hand the struggle that anglers were facing with the low-quality waders that were available at that time. He wanted to provide himself, as well as all future anglers, with high-quality products that would withstand the seasons. Keeping anglers comfortable and dry out on the water was a necessity. One that he was very familiar with seeing as how he spent 150+ days guiding every year. By the late '80s, Simms had become a household name and one that was associated with providing the anglers with the best quality they can afford. For the company to stand the test of time, new and innovative products are coming out each year. Ranging in prices, there is something for everyone in the Simms lineup. From the occasional angler to the serious tournament anglers and guides, Simms has a product that will keep you out on the water without any discomfort!
