Duck Commander waders

Postby Ducksnuff870 » Thu Sep 12, 2013 2:37 pm

I'm in the market for new waders. I see duck commander has put their name on a new line of them. They actually look like they'd be good. I know the duck commander guys generally use whatever gear they can get sponsored by but these waders do look descent. Anyone bought a pair yet?

I also have checked out cabelas,mackspw and orvis. I really like the orvis waders but sheeeweee what a big price tag. I also read a post and checked out having USIA custom make a pair.

Your best best is get a pair of cabelas supermag 1600s, the reviews don't lie and the warranty is second to none. Super warm too, pretty much don't wear any layering under them until late in the season.

I dunnno it just seems like every pair of waders I've ever owned develops a leak no matter what I pay for them or where they come from.

Are you taking proper care of the neoprene waders? Stick to the guidelines they give you when you buy a pair. I know people who are on almost their 8th-9th season with still no issues.

Yep. 6 seasons now not one leak. You get what you pay for. You pay for cheap gear, it will just fall apart faster. And cabelas has lifetime warenty. If its days cabelas on it and is defective take them back and they will replace no ? Asked.

No, acutally, they will not take them back and replace them. I brought waders into them that had a hole in the knee and they would not replace them because a "lifetime warranty" is the lifetime of the product (which they consider 1 year). Classic bait and switch. I won't buy from cabelas again.

I have still yet to understand how a pair of waders can look good. I couldn't give less of a crap how something looks when I'm standing balls deep in January water. Buy what works, not what you think will work.

Bass pro redheads are great price and 2 years running with mine walking through nasty stuff too. The boots are comfy too though seem to be a tad heavy

Cabelas warranty sucks. i had a pair of cabelas waders i bought last season and they developed a hole in the knee and at the seam in the crotch. they told me that it was from basic wear and tear and not covered under warranty and i was just out of luck. I bought a pair of redheads from bass pro this year over the summer and managed to rip them while trout fishing in Arkansas and they replaced them without a receipt and with out asking any questions. thats customer service right there. cabelas sure didnt offer that

supermags for sure. I had my previous supermag waders for 10 years. Finally after 10 years, the inside of one of the boots came apart. I duct taped it and it worked just fine. I wanted to be sure I wouldn't get stuck in the wee hours of the morning without a boot insert so I bought a new pair. I keep the old pair as a back up; they still work fine. Never a leak.

Me too.

I posted the story last year. I actually TOLD the lady I thought I got my moneys worth that I was just checking because I heard things. She gave me a brand new pair. I think it may help too if you are a member of the "club" and they can look at your credit card receipt and see you spent several thousand dollars in the last year on their stuff. :lol3:

They stopped doing that around 2004-5. I have a pair of waders I used for fly fishing that developed a leaky seam. I was told I hqd owned them too long (2 years) to replace at full value, but I could have a $20.00 gift card for the trouble. Similar story with a fly rod I owned for a year and three weeks before an eye gave out.

Before that, no questions asked, ever. Didn't they go public in 2004? :thumbsup:

Maybe it depends upon the local store "following policy" vs trying to keep customers happy? :fingerpt:
