Looknig at switching over this year to a breathable stocking foot wader, like the Cabelas Gold Medel Dry Plus waist high waders. I have a pair of leather Mendl hunting boots that i could wear over the bootie, or should i look at getting a rubber sole wading boot, like the Simms Guide boot, and hunt in that. Going to Kodiak for Deer early November, doing a lagoon landing and te area is mainlh hihg ground, so the I could get by on a non rainly day wearing the Mendl's and gators, like I have in the past. Every hunt I'm on my boots are wet by day 2 anyway.
Looking for what has worked for others in the past. Not even interested in wearing a rubber hip boot as I would sweat to death in them.
