Simms Flyweight Access Wading Boot

by Simms

The biggest story with the new Flyweight boot is grip. Vibrams new Idrogrip sole is soft and that allows it to conform and stick to the slipperiest of rocks. Add to that improved durability and light weight, Simms Flyweight Access boots are perfect for long days wading. Very popular boot for women as it's available in smaller sizes.


Your lean, mean trail-to-river machine — the new Simms Flyweight Access Men's Wading Boots cut ounces in exchange for maximum output, relentless grip, and standup stability and comfort.

Optimised for best-in-class wet-slip resistance, the exclusive-to-Simms Vibram Idrogrip Flex outsole is engineered with a rubber compound that is softer than Vibram Idrogrip in our other wading boots. 


  • Vibram Idropgrip Flex - exclusive to Simms - provides the highest grip possible. Users should expect this outsole to wear more quickly than Vibram Idrogrip used on other Simms boots with superior traction
  • Lightweight, non-absorbent mesh uppers
  • Welded TPU overlays in high-abrasion areas for added durability
  • Supportive, but lightweight and comfortable webbing lacing hardware across the foot
  • Full closed-cell neoprene foam lining
  • Pull-on loops for easy on and off

These boots were made for wading

These boots were a winner from the word go. They were so comfortable and light to wear that they are the best boots I’ve ever worn, and I have no reservations giving them the 5 stars.

Simms Flyweight Access wading boots.

Getting old so I thought a pair of lightweight wading boots were in order for my annual trip to NZ.
Anyhow the above were an excellent choice for the larger boulders in the Upper Larry’s and those slippery “brown” rocks in the Rough.

100% best ever just what I wanted.

Simms Flyweight Access boots

These boots right from the start have been excellent, regarding both comfort and grip. After four outings I decided to screw in some Vision studs I purchased with the boots. Just to see if studs would make them even better. With studs they’re bloody awesome grip wise. But probably 10-15%less comfortable after a long walk or full days wading a river. Just a little bit harder under foot. But seriously I should have bought a pair of these boots long ago. I have no hesitation in highly recommending in regards to grip or comfort. As far as durability goes, I haven’t had them long enough to give a wise opinion.
