If i sit in my waders for prolonged periods i get the same sensation. However I always wear blue jeans and if its cold blue jeans and thermals. I have been wearing fleece wader pants this year and they are very comfortable.

Wool is the answer. Wool is one of the few fabrics that will actually "wick" away the moisture from your skin. Blue jeans has to be the worst thing for "bleacher-butt"

Worst thing a hunter can do is to use cotton, be it socks, breifs, pants, tshirts, etc... Use acrylic, poly propolene, nylon, etc.. which will not hold moisture next to your skin, because moisture against your skin makes you cold much faster. I do NOT use ANY cotton when hunting, even the layered items. All man made easy moisture whicking, so that is I get a bit wet from wave splashes, rain, etc, AI dry off 10 X faster than cotton ever would.

As for wool--it can be wet and stiill keep you warm. -but it is itchy for most if next to your skin, so it makes for a great layered garment.

Under my waders i usually have a pair of boxers, some long john thermals, and then some sweat pants. And there is something else underneath it all but i wont go there. (sorry just had to say that) :tounge: .

Go with wool. I hunt with a buddy who works for a company called Smartwool and they make wool underwear and he can tell you in depth as to what the benefits of wool are over cotton, poly pro, under armour ect, as he did to me this past weekend for hours on end. I use to wear underarmour and thought the stuff was great but my buddy ordered me some wool products and this smartwool is so much better than underarmour. He equates underarmour to wearing a garbage sack. Check it out at smartwool.com but beware is is expensive.

:withstupid: you feel so free. and when you need to take a dump . . . I'll stop there.

Wool rocks though I was out deer hunting and feel in to a sink pit up to my thighs in five minuites I was dry and happy (even though we didn't see a deer)
thanks to the men and woman of the United States Coast Guard- without them I would not be here.

fleece wader pants is imo the only way to go and fleece also wicks moisture away from your body.

i have tried most of the things mentioned here and under armour cold gear has been the best, by far. just remember, it should be the 1st layer that comes in contact with your skin (no underwear, boxers, etc.). imo, it's much more comfortable than wool or anything else. there isn't an itch factor with it either.

I haven't yet bought into the underarmour craze. yes, I said craze. As far as cotton goes, we call that the "death cloth". I know from years of camping that it is not the way to go.
Wool socks on my feet and a poly-pro long underwear with wader pants. I have a thin fleece pair of Herters wader pants, they seemed too thin when I got them, but I was sweating a bit this year. Even in 20-30 degree temps.
