I have them and they are awesome. :thumbup: Way better than other simms boots. They make you about 4 inches taller too so they're good for scaring people out of your way on the vedder. :cheers: Plus they're stylin'. They will last you longer and are more comfortable. The tongue is really innovative and w/ the neoprene inside combined w/ the gravel guard that comes w/ most simms waders they allow for no water or dirt to seep in making them stay lighter for those long days on the river bank. And they'll protect your high priced waders as well. IMO a lightweight boot that is more sturdy, well-crafted, and looks cool make them definately worth the $200+ price tag. And from my experience simms has been really good with their warranty coverage as well. I say go for it.

***Let me prefice what I'm about to state by saying that I'm a gear head and subsequently love to read gear reviews before I make my decision on what to buy, and this is by no means a slight on Ortho because he makes a very valid point.***(edited section)

That may be true, but this is a gear review thread and that's what I gave. I tried to explain that there are some cool features not available on other boots that I've REALLY enjoyed on these, that make me feel that they are worth the money in my eyes. What's the point of posting on a gear review if you haven't used, or are interested in the product?

What if someone wanted a review on a Winston fly rod? My bet would be that this person already knows the price range they are jumping into and probably doesn't need to be bombarded by people telling him that there are many great rods in the $1-200 range. They are just looking for some feedback from people who HAVE made the same investment, and gague whether THEY are happy with it or not.

Simms G3s are probably the most expensive felt soled boot on the market so obviously there are cheaper options that also look cool and are durable, but he didn't ask about those.. He's selling a pair of freestones in the classifieds so it would seem to me that he's looking for an upgrade from the type of boot you are referring to. In my opinion, as I stated before, he's looking in the right direction.

I'll leave it to Bergler and the mods to decide but maybe the PM option would be better for providing one with info that really has nothing to do with the product in question so as to avoid clutter in the gear reviews section. Sorry for the rant, but like I said... I take my gear seriously.

I didn't see your last post before I wrote this Big Steel... Let me know if you get em and tell me if you like em as much as I do, maybe I'm just crazy :cheers: TC
