Never tried to post a review, but had trouble with my waders leaking and sent them in, no problem with an exchange and the new ones have been holding up for about 4/5 years now. Send the jacket back again and I am sure they will replace it.

In my experience, nothing beats the Simms products for quality of construction and the warranty process. Don't have the waders but have
a ton of their other gear, packs boots etc. and it is great stuff for sure.
