Smile Simms G3 Waders

Has anyone tried the new G3 waders and if so are they that much better than the other Breathables on the market???

Probably from the one's I've seen on other folks.

But I've been using my $129 Dan B's for at least 3 years, summer and winter (just more on due to lower water temps) and they're working just fine. Well, an 'errent' cast/fly in butt has caused a patch or two.

Haven't tried them but the guide weights have been incredible for me for the last few years. They are so new I don't think too many folks have had the chance to field test them.

Ive got a pair on the way and will report back when after I spend some time on the water with them...

I can say that the features alone make these waders worth the cost...and if they are as durable as Simms says they are...then they are no doubt worth the $425

G3 update

Well since nobody else has a pair I have bitten the bullet and bought them and I for one couldn't be happier with them. They are a great improvement over the guide weights and the added features means I don't always have to wear my vest or worry about gravel in my boots anymore(the aftermarket guards didn't work well on my old waders). The only problem is now how do I use my neoprenes since I won't be wearing them ever again!!! Please help any and all creative suggestions will be welcome
