Looking for Waders

Postby kcduckslayer » Sat Oct 29, 2005 10:31 pm

After a long hike in this morning and finding out my waders leak REAL BAD and am now in the market for a new waders. Anyone have any opinions for waders that are easy to walk in and dont leak? I don't really want to spend more than $150

For $150 you oughta be able to find waders just about anywhere. I looked for a pair in that range for a long time. Not because I was having trouble finding any, but because I wanted to be sure I was going to be happy with what I got. I ended up going with LL Bean 5mm waders this time. I liked the full body coverage they offered and I would assume a company as well known as they are will have good customer service. Cabelas offers quite a few pairs in that price range. One pair I couldn't talk myself into but I really liked were the Brush Busters. I liked the 1000 grams of thinsulate they offered and they are supposed to be tough as nails. Try using shopzilla or something that will search for you on the best prices. Good luck!

I bought a pair of Lacrosse Brush tuffs last season and I think they're awesome. They fit goog around the ankle too, so my feet aren't slopping around inside the waders too. Also, nice and warm.

definitely Cabela's. Liberal exchange/return policy, great product, great prices. I've had 2 pair of the top end hodgmans and they both leaked at the boot seam after the first day. Got 3 years on my Cabelas with some very hard miles put on them and they still look new.

waders

Postby fishmunkee » Wed Nov 02, 2005 2:41 pm

I'm in the second season of my Dan Bailey breathable waders. Never worn waders this comfortable. They are as warm as the layers I put under them. Felt sorry for my buddies in neoprene on a sweltering opening day.

I've got cabelas 5 mm neoprene sock foot waders for 75 bucks, plus I got to pick out what kind of wading boots I got and wasn't stuck w/ the rubber bottemed waders.

Have you worn them? I wore them just long enough to realize how bad those "contour" fit rubbed holes in my ankles.

I've got a pair of the RedHead Bone Dry neoprene waders. I have had them for Six years now and have just recently patched a few holes. I like them. If you wear thick socks with them they won't rub blisters on your ankles. I found that out the first few times I wore them. They run about
$110 dollars at BPS but if you catch a sale they run around $80.

I think I may be thinking about different redhead bone dry waders than you. Because here, the normal price before sale is 169 or 159, I don't remember. But they are bone dry extremes.

Yeah completely different. I was thinking of their so-called premium grade waders. The waders I have are the Cabelas Ultimates with 1000 grams of insulation, 5mm armor flex stretch neoprene. By far the toughest neoprene waders made. I absolutely love them. I got them for 130 after a 30 dollar mail in rebate a year or two ago. They have velcro shoulder straps so you don't have those annoying buckles getting in your way when you shoulder your gun. I strongly reccomend these waders.
