Made in the U.S.A. means many things, but for us here at Simms, mostly it’s a satisfaction guarantee that stems from our Bozeman, Montana backyard to yours. We’re proud to be the sole wader manufacturer in the country, bringing American-made goods to market. And when you put on any product from Simms, you’re putting on the best we know how to make. Period. Every product at Simms is designed by our team in Bozeman. For this 4th of July holiday, we thought we’d highlight our products that are 100% American made.
