Thread: Looking for Waist High Wader Recommendation

    Default Looking for Waist High Wader Recommendation

    Anyone have a waist high wader they'd recommend? I have a Cabela's pair I like but they didn't last long rafting and hunting.

    These guys work pretty well, and are more durable than neoprene. https://kokatat.com/product/gore-tex...h-socks-ptugtp
    The NRS version have doubled fabric in the critical areas. https://www.nrs.com/product/22520.02...efall-dry-pant
    Failing that, Cabelas used to make a wader with a neoprene wader with a grid type coating (magnum?) that was really durable. They might still have it.
    Fighting gravity is never cheap.

    These look great but spendy for me, thanks for the ideas though, I'll look around some more.

    I have been very happy with my simms freestone pants. Only second season on them right now so hard to speak about durability. Buddy is going on his third season with a pair of frog togg pant waders.

    Simms Guide are probably the best. I've been happy with my FroggToggs with light use. Hundred dollar waders aren't going to stand up to any abuse or last more than a few seasons.

    I have been wearing the same Simms Guide pant waders for 9 years and they still work great. Pretty pricey but they hold up great here in AK.

    I'll second (or third) Simms Guide pant waders. I work as a fly fishing guide on backcountry streams, and these work great and really hold up to use.

    I am pretty interested in getting some dry pants for work. but for simple wader pants, frogg toggs are cheap and do the job.

    Simms Guide, don’t go the cheap route with waders.

    I've read where plenty of guys have said their spendy Simms didn't hold up.....
