Stockingfoot Wader Question/Advice

Postby MaxDuck » Sat Jan 11, 2014 1:46 pm

Hey guys I was hoping you all could help me out. I have a pair of Cabela's stockingfoot waders with a nice pair of wading boots. I love the waders and the boots but I really have had some trouble with the gravel guards. They are so hard to get on when it's cool out and even harder when it's cold. They operate with a zipper and have one piece of Velcro on top. They work really when I get them on but getting them on by myself is time consuming and just a pain. If you guys have any tips/recommendations I would really appreciate hearing them! Thanks

All the gravel guards I have ever had are stretch waste band kind of stuff you just pull over the boot. Then a hook to hook on the shoe laces.

Thanks Cupped, would you posting where you purchased yours? That kind of guard seems much easier to put on.

*Found what looks like a much better pair of gravel guards from Orvis. Thanks for your input though

I buy breathables on Ebay or other places they might be on sale usually. I use Hodgman Wadelite as I use mine mostly in a kayak and not around brush. I just get green and don't worry about camo. I am either in the water, or in the blind/boat. :smile:

I just got my daughter a pair around Christmas for under $30 shipped, but got lucky, and Academy had cheap wading boots in mens 8 she could use for $20. You can find them for $50 if you look enough and a patient.
