    Default Cabela's Wader Jeans

    I'm not sure if anyone else has seen these, but Cabela's has come out with a pair of "waist waders" that are lightweight like a pair of jeans. They're called Dry-Plus Stockingfoot Wader Jeans. Here's the link:

    It says that the outer fabric is "tightly woven micro-denier." I'm wondering if this is a noisy fabric that would not be suitable for spot-and-stalk hunting as I'm sure that most light-weight, nylon-type waders would not work. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Default Dry Plus

    Good price on these jean-style waders right now. I've used their full chest waders in the Dry Plus for duck hunting and fishing. As far as stalk and hunt noise, I think their a little noisy for that, plus too much stress on the stocking foot. Kept getting leaks in the foot area and finally sent them back for a full refund. Can't beat Cabelas retun policy...

    I used this exact pair every day last September on my Alaska Peninsula moose hunt. They performed far better than my partner's Orvis gore-tex waiders, which ripped. These never leaked, and dryed as well as any gore-tex waders I've used. They are stretchy enough to hike comfortably. I really tested them when I had to stand in two feet of water for eight hours dressing a moose that died in a swamp. They never leaked.

    The only complaint I had, was that the neoprene booties are not fitted enough. They bunch-up some in the boot. I used a pair of regular Merril, nonwater proof hiking boots over them. They drained well, and had an agressive sole for hiking. They just stayed soaked all week, which didn't obviously matter.

    I took a pair of gore-tex gaiters to wear over the lower portion of the waders, but never used them. When I have had waders rip in AK, it always seems to happen below the knee. These stood-up, but I admittedly didn't tear through as many alders as I usually do.
