Last weekend I was wearing my Hodgeman breathable waders when I went out duck hunting. All was well as I was walking in for the few miles that I have to walk to get to my pond, then Igot my decoys set up, and shot a pintail! As I walked over to get it, I noticed my leg was getting a cold sensation trickling down. I knew what that means, however it was getting cold really fast. I got into some shallower water and found a hole about the size of a quarter ripped in the leg. DARN! As the day progressed I noticed more and more leaks happening, followed by the zipper failing on me as I was about to walk out. By the time I got back to my truck the waders had 5 holes and a broken zipper. And this is only the second season I have used them!
Needless to say I will NEVER buy hodgeman waders again. I am looking for a replacement pair, I was checking out the Macks PW All season breathables Does anybody have any experience with the Macks waders? Anybody have any recommendations for a new pair?
