Following the overwhelming success of the Korkers Guide and Predator wading boots in 2010, more and more fishing manufactures are seeing the light and recognizing the benefits the Boa Lacing System adds to superior fly fishing product and apparel. Check out this Boa Lacing System review from the crew at covering the new Simms RiverTrek wading boot.

Simms-Rivertek_300In early August, we visited the Simms design and production facility in Bozeman, Montana to get a sneak peek at their new wading boot, the RiverTek Boa, which features PVC uppers for super-easy cleaning and the Boa Lacing System. For those who haven’t tried Boa laces — a coated braided wire system that tightens via a knob at the top of the boot tongue — they make lace-tightening and fit a no brainer. But more importantly, if your fingers are freezing, wet, or just tired, the instant-release feature makes boot removal a breeze. The new RiverTek Boa also features Simms’s CleanStream design along with their Vibram StreamTread.

With a Boa lacing system providing simple, even closure, the Rivertek is designed to take Simms wading boots to the next level in environmentally conscious design. Featuring StreamTread Vibram soles and minimum exposed stitching, the boot is specifically designed to be easy to clean.

The RiverTek Boa will begin showing up at Simms retailers in the Spring of 2011 and will retail for $169.95.

Simms makes great products. They are designed not only for the casual hobbist but the consement professional. I haven’t personally tried this particular product but it probably doesn’t continue to shrink like the Korkers upper. And the sole is more than likely better.

I’d must check with you here. Which isn’t something I often do! I enjoy reading a put up that may make individuals think. Additionally, thanks for allowing me to comment!
