Default Breathable waders

I'm in the market for a pair of breathable waders. I need recommendations. Price, comfortability, and reliability are the big factors. I already have a pair of neoprenes for the cold weather, I just need some breathables for teal and if we have another mild winter like last year.

I'm telling you, you'll never wear neoprene again. Spunt Drag will cause he would get cold on a 60 degree day.

All that's left is stocking foot type and in any real man sizes and I don't think they would hold up in the woods I hunt

Hodgman wade lites are super light and very comfortable. I hunt in mine all year. ill never go back to neoprene. You can move around in them better, can slide over your cloths easier, and they kept me warmer than my neoprene did because they dont sweat.

I prefer stockings especially when walk-in hunting because of the lighter weight and easier to move around in in general

SIMMS
They only give a life time warranty on the G3's and up since they are Gortex. Best service in the biz hands down.
