Durable tough waders

Postby HARDKORE HUNTER » Mon Jan 28, 2013 11:57 am

What is the toughest most durable (poke resistant) waders out there? I am glad yesterday was the last day of our duck season ONLY because I discovered a leak in the left foot of my waders and can't find it! I just bought these waders before this season and thought I was doing a good job on taking care of them but apparently not! Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Jeremy

Cabelas 1600 supermag. Have a pair and love them. Just ripped out a beaver dam a few days ago and knocked into many pointy sticks and walked through alot of brambles, i haven't owned them long but hear that the "armor flex" lasts forever through almost anything

SWEET! I will need to look into those cause where I hunt there is a lot of underbrush and sticks and logs and all kinds of nasty stuff under the water! Also a lot of berry bushes with thorns! I will check them out though! Thanks!

I bought a pair of Cabela's Marshbuster 500 waders in 2004. They are so tough, so heavy, so stiff that I've worn them about three times since.
Moral of story: the tougher the wader, the less comfortable they will be. Pick your poison, 'cause there is no free lunch.

I made the switch this year to breathable waders and I will never go back to neoprene. I went with Cabelas dry-plus. These waders were much more comfortable, easier to walk in, easier to take on and off, and would almost be dry by the time I got home from hunting. They were also much nicer to wear for the first month of the season. The boots are 600gm insulate and towards the end of the season I would wear wader liners and never got cold. I hunted in and out of a boat and also in rice blinds and theyre still holding up just fine. I wish i would have made the switch sooner. Hope this helps and good luck !
