Protecting waders

Postby quackstacker » Fri Oct 20, 2006 6:06 pm

Has anyone heard of putting armorAll on their waders? This is to protect them in the offseason. IS THIS GOOD TO DO OR DOES IT HURT THEM IN THE LONG RUN?

Are we talking traditional rubber & canvas?

Never heard of that...there is a sealer you can put on the seams, inside and out, before you start wearing them. May pro long your seams for a bit. Seems Im buying new waders every 3 or 4 years regardless of type. Seems seams are the weakest link :mrgreen:

I've been doing it for the past few years. It is supposed to keep the material from breaking down as fast .

So does the armor-all cause the cracks in the boots? do you put the armor all on the waders and boots both or just the boots?

Just put the armor-all on the rubber parts in my case the boots. When I opened the box it actually had instructions to do that after every use!! :salude:
