Simms Freestone Boot Review
Simms Freestone wading boot for three seasons now and I am very pleased with this boot. I spend a lot of time wading tough rivers such as the Truckee and North Yuba and these boots stand up to the toughest conditions that I come across.This is my second pair and they are exceptionally comfortable and very durable. Getting in and out of them is a breeze due to the gusseted tongue. The Vibram soles are fantastic but as you can see after 100+ days in these boots they are starting to show some wear. I went through two sets of the Alumibite studs before I felt they weren't worth the cost and replaced them with 1/2" #8 sheet metal screws available from my local hardware store.
I give these a 4 out of 5 star rating based on comfort-ability, durability and price. Listed at $129 these are a lot of boot for the price.
