First pair of wadders

Postby FLYINGHUNTER » Sat Nov 25, 2006 1:03 am

hey guys, new to the duck hunting scene, and have no idea about waders. im not sure what kinds of material or thickness i shoul dbe looking at, nor do i know what features if any i need. looking at around 150 bucks as a budget. where i am hunting gets fairly cold especially in late nove and dec. it can get around -10 C but also be as warm as 13 C. (sorry about the metric) :mrgreen:

cheers
:salude:

Definitely go with Neoprene in 3.5 to 5mm thickness with as much boot insulation that $150 will get you. For about $20-30 more you can get 5mm body with 1000 gm Thinsulate boots.

I'd check w/ Cabelas or Macks PW. Cabela's has some 3.5mm with 600gm boots for around $90 if you want a good "starter set".

Cabelas ultimate hunting wader. They are about 160 dollars. 5mm neoprene and 1000 gram insulation in the boots. This is my first year with this pair but I have found them to be very comfortable and very durable so far.
