Wow dude! Simms coat falls apart and now Korker boot eyelets pop out! Never heard of these things happening! That's some bad luck there bro. Hope your fishing prowess isn't as cursed...  ;D

Haha! Fortunately that has not been an issue. Hoping to kill a hatchery steelhead this weekend to appease the fish gods. 8)

I had a pair of buckskin korkers, the boots lasted less than a year cracks on each boot where the bend is behind the toes . Also the rubber soles were a death trap couldn't even stand in ankle deep water with them . I recently purchased a pair of Hodgman h5 boots with the wadetech soles, by far the best grip out of any rubber soled boots I have ever worn. They are also interchangeable and are interlocking, so the soles don't come off unless the 2 things are pushed together. I cant speak for longevity, but so far so good I like them a lot.
