I hunt about 70 days per season and wear waders EVERY time out. I'd say part of the problem is the way we hunt and the places we hunt. However, almost every single member of our group has leaky seams in the crotch area on just about every brand of waders we try. Cabelas, Hodgman, Lacrosse, Drake, and Macks PW.....all leak eventually.
I've found that many guys who join us for a hunt at one particular spot figure out their waders leak after standing in the water for a few hours. I've had several experiences where just walking a bit to set and pick up decoys guys rarely notice a leak, but stand in waist deep water for a few hours and even the smallest pinhole will get you wet.
IF I AGREED WITH YOU, WE'D BOTH BE WRONG.
