Usually when waders start breathing that means they got a hole and I throw them away. :yes: I dang sure wouldnt buy any with holes already in them!! :lol: :lol: Sorry i couldnt help it!! :thumbsup:

Haha. Well, I'm gonna try them out. Only thing I'm worried about is getting a little chilly.

If you're buying Drake's EST waders, pick me up a pair while you're at it. :thumbsup:

Hope they are better than the LST. Had 3 buddies buy them last yr and none of them made it through a season.2 leaked from the knee pads and the other in the boot, I think. Honestly, from what I hear and read, nobody makes them to last unless you get lucky and get some that weren't made on friday or monday. Haha. I hear more good things about lacrosse.

I bought my first pair to try out this season,Cabelas dryplus.
I've got a buddy that has a pair of Lacrosse breathables,swampfox or something like that,and he loves them.How they have done for him is the reason I'm giving the Cableas a try.He wears them until the temps get in the 20's and then goes to neo waders.He's had his breathables for going on 3 seasons.He's ripped a hole or two in them and even burnt a perfect circle from a hot exhaust.He says that they are super easy to patch and that none of his repairs are leaking.
Hope this helps.

I bought my first pair last year. Hunted in them a handful of times. Mobility is much better. About like having a pair of bibs on. Great if your in a blind or pit and mainly need waders for setup and retrieves. I put mine on like a pair of pants at house with short drive to hunting spot. Don't waste time in morning struggling to get in waders in parking lot at hunting spot. Suggest trying to find a pair with plenty of thinsulate in the boots. Most are 400 or so. I bought Gander Mtn ones for about $140. If your not standing in water for hours, I think they are way better than neoprene. Don't sweat in the early season or the typically mild first part of main season in KY. Suspect you will get cold standing in water for hours with temps below freezing, but should be able to play with fleece layering underneath to find a comfort zone for that. Probably could comfortably wear a pair of insulated bibs underneath if you wanted. I bought 300 weight fleece socks this offseason to try to offset the lack of insulation in the boot. Looking forward to trying it out.
