    I am looking at getting a set of breathable waders for early season and was wondering who makes a good pair. During colder times I use cabelas super mags and they seem to hold up pretty good. TIA

    Why only early season?? I hubtbresthables even during our late season in well below temps on the river and have never once missed neoprene.

    Which ones are you using? I’m assuming a pair of insulated breathables? I’ve got my eye on the banded red zones but haven’t quite been able to pull the trigger on them yet.

    I used to have a set of bone dry breathable waders and come late November and later it got cold standing waist deep in the water.

    One of my passions is fly fishing, I have a pair of Simms guide waders that I've used in Sub-Zero weather and in hundred degree weather and also duck hunting. Now I know that probably doesn't answer your question but I also have not missed neoprene. But I will say this, if you want a really good pair they are expensive

    The beauty of breathables is you control the insulation and how muc warmth you need or don’t need. If you got cold you didn’t later yet.

    Any pair of breathables I’ve owned. It’s all on what you wear under them. However, now I have a pair of Red Zone insulated ones as of recently and love them.

    I’ve been using a pair of cabelas uninsulated breathables the last two years, but they’ve developed some pin hole leaks. I agree, layering is key and make them way more comfortable and versatile. Since the uninsulated’s did get a little chilly in 0-10 degree temps I am looking at insulated ones. The red zones look like the best option to me.

    Gator Waders. Got a pair of insulated breathable before last season and I will never go back to neoprene. These are well made and comfortable.
