If the call of high mountain streams and the path less traveled ring true for you, our Flyweight Boot offers an incredibly lightweight design to help you answer the high-mountain call. The low-profile design maintains full wading boot functionality and the Vibram® Idrogrip outsole sticks to wet, mossy rocks, and is reinforced for reliable stud and cleat retention.
I am on my 3rd season with this boot and I have been extremely happy with the fit. They have worked great on long days of hiking into and out of high alpine lakes. I believe these boots have another 3 years in them still!
I love these boots. They are light and easy to hike in. At the end of the day my feet are usually spent having to carry around heavy wader boots. These make a huge difference and I love using them. I have too many pairs of wader boots, but these are my go to...
Great boots, Nice job Simms
I have always bought heavier boots made to last, but decided to try these out. Been really pleased with them. The vibram soles are just as good as Simms heavier products but are much more comfortable and nice to wear for less intensive wading / floating / stillwaters etc. That said, this is not to imply that they don't seem durable. I expect these things to last me for quite a while.
After several years of wading in my old patched together gear, and a global virus slowing things down, I decided to finally upgrade to a new setup of Simms gear. Good lord did it make a difference, and these boots are the cherry on top. I've hiked 7+ miles, 3k elevation, in a single day wearing these, and while I definitely don't recommend doing that, I didn't even get any blisters. Yes they're a little slick in the water, being rubber soled, but it's better for the rivers than the old felt, and if you've ever tried to slide down a scree ridge in your felt soles... well you know what I mean.
Excellent lightweight boots for getting to, and into the rivers you're dreaming about.
I've been using these for over a year now and they are still good as new! They are super light and comfy to walk in. The Vibram sole does the job too. Not as good as felt on certain surfaces but that's expected. These boots have been able to tackle every spot I have fished!
