I need some help

Postby choclab » Sat Aug 27, 2005 5:49 pm

I am in the market for some new waders. I think I have narrowed it down to LaCrosse Buff Tuffs or the Hodgman Dura Mags. Any and all input would be great. :help:

Thanks guys. I think I may go with the LaCrosse because of the Buff Tuff. I also need a pair that are comfy. I spent ALOT of time in waders. I get laid off in the winter and I usually hunt 5-6 days a week. My last pair sucked. Made the hunting not so fun.

Look into the breathable waders too. I have a neoprene pair and the breathable - Like the breathable much better. I don't sweat as much.

I agree with TST on the breathable if you walk A-ways I walk a few hours many times and sweat but when I go on the gentleman's hunt I would not trade my 1200G fleece lined brush tuff for anything.
