What is your go to insulated chest wader?! What are you willing to spend and what is the life of your best pair of waders?
Appreciate it! I had a air of redheads for a couple years but the seams finally wore and leaked like a sieve. Really appreciate the feedbackI have used all different types.
Back in the day we wore the army green neoprene from bass pro or redheads. Stocking foot and boot both worked well and cost about 80 bucks.
Lately like last decade I have gone away from neos and gone to breathables. I have run the zip up end regular style all with fitted boots.
Hodgon, Cabela’s and most recently Caddis. I like the breathable because I can layer underneath for the weather I expect and much more comfortable.
Good waders are going to run 250-350 these days.
Of course you can buy Sitkas which they say are really nice.
That’s where I got my ammo this year. And I can get a dog, but my work ramps up to 14 hour days in the summer so it doesn’t leave much time for training.Another spot to consider is Rogers
They have an assortment of pricing.
They have a line called the working mans. Reasonable.
ps can you buy a dog?
It helps tremendously and gives you way more options.
