Give me your opinion on waders!!!

I bought a new pair of waders from Bass Pro this year. They already have 4 holes in them that I had to patch. When I bought them, I started to buy the neoprene "brush tough" but the guy at BPS talked me out of it.... he said they are harder than hell to walk long distances in, so I opted for regular neoprene waders....

So... if you have had an experience with the 5mm thick brush tough waders let me know!!!

It seems to me to be a trade off. Anything but the best breathables are goingto be uncomfortable on really long walks, but I patch my breathables a couple times a year during fishing season. Some people are more prone to getting holes in their waders too, but Im wondering, where are you getting the holes?

I get them from walking in my slough which is kind of like flooded timber.... the beavers have tons of cut logs in the water, and they poke a holes.... all of my holes are from the knee down....

I've got 3 pair of waders at present time. One is real thin and great to walk in, second are RedHeads I think and for some reason the boots don't hold up for nuttin, 2 big holes in two years. Pair 3 are brush tough type from cabelas and I've abused em this year with great results. They are harder to walk in and have more insulation which makes for a hot sweaty hunter but they havnen't torn.

I have to agree with deano. I have the cabelas dura mag waders and they are little tough to walk in but when you get to your favorite hole you are dry. I have two pair a light pair and the dura mag. The light pair I use during teal season. The heavy pair for regular duck season just wear what you need to wear underneath. The first two weeks of duck season I wore shorts under my waders and was just fine.

I wear the Brush Busters, best wader I have ever owned. When I bought them they only had felt liners. I think they are on sale now for $120 with thinsulate. If it got down to 17 or colder I add foot chemical warmers. Also I let the felt liners dry out after each hunt by pulling them out of the wader. I hunt Lake Meredith Noth of Amarillo alot and we put on our gear and get the boat ready at a heated toilet. Sure makes it nice. Ned S the young 78 yr old.

I have had the Cabelas dry plus for the past two years and I hunt 30 plus days a year in warm and very cold (below zero) and have been very happy. I have the 600 grams and if it is in the teens or below I wear a pair of wader pants.
