Do a little research, tons of threads here and you'll find that most go with Cabela's. durable and comfortable waders!

Like 2500hdon37s said, there is a lot of threads on here on waders. A lot of people wear Cabela's. A lot of people said stay away from LaCrosse wader's when I was looking to purchase. Best thing you can do is research a ton and then go and try them on.

I have been hunting the same SuperMag 1600's from Cabelas for about 6 or 7 years now. The locations I usually hunt are not easy to get to or gentle to the equipment (large thorns, beaver stobs, sharp rocks...). I have only had to reinforce one small seam for a pin hole leak. These things have taken everything I have thrown at em and held up. If they split out on my next hunt, I would order anoter set with overnight shipping.
The boots are very warm and for me that is important. Some people will say 1600's are over kill but I can hand the cold weather and chills most of the time - if my feet get cold, I am heading to the truck. I hunted them in 5* temps with no trouble.

100% agree with the cabela supermag! On my second pair in 8-9 years. I hastened the end of my first pair by pretending one year I was 20 years younger and trapped like I did in high school. I very likely would still be on the first pair if it wasn't for that. :beer:

I bought Drake EQuader. Would not recommend them. They are comfortable, warm, great movement and plenty of pockets for gear...the problem is I never noticed how low cut they are on the sides. They almost go down to the waist which makes them more like hip boots. Make sure you pay attention how low the sides go.

I am a fan of Cabela's "Ultimate Hunting Chest Waders". Neoprene w/Velcro instead of buckles. About $ 225. Had mine for several years w/no complaints. Only problem is plan on something else for training in warm weather.

Go down to ****'s and get a pair of Max-4 Pro Lines. They are only a $112 and they are the best waders I have ever had, better than my old Cabelas waders. I have used them for 2 years now and still just like new. I would really recommend them. :thumbsup:

In my opinion, you won't go wrong with Cabela's waders. I love mine and would buy another pair for sure.

I'm not going against anything columbia makes I have 2 jackets and a pair of bibs they make and they are the best. I don't have their waders b/c they don't make them in my size I wear a 16 and I have some macks 5mm dura hyde chest waders and they are the most durable neoprenes I have ever had.

I went with the Cabela's Northern Flight One-Strap waders. Hunted in them last weekend. I would highly recommend them. :thumbsup:

Got a set of Cabelas Dry-Plus breathables for Christmas. They listed for $179, were on sale for $159 and I had a $20 off purchase coupon for a total cost of $139. These things are unbelievable? Cool when it's warm and they're warm when it's cold. Of course on cold days I wear underarmour underwear and fleece-lined wader pants underneath. I'm completely sold on these things. :hammer:
