Default Hunting waders

Looking to buy a new pair of waders before the season and wanted some opinions on different brands. I am leaning towards Lacrosse but their sizing is jacked up.

If you buy anything other than cabelas brand you are crazy. The warranty their footwear for life! I burnt a hole in mine last year and brought them to the store and exchanged them for a brand new pair. No knocking the quality of any other waders but you will never hav to buy waders again.

Neoprene is a huge PITA to put on. I got some at academy, I just layer up underneath them. Don't remember the brand. Had some drake, they didn't last 3 trips!

Lacrosse Swampfox are the most comfortable breathables in my opinion. Went through 2 pair of Cabelas breathables last year.

I did see the gamewinners at Academy and tried them on, they fit good just wasn't sure about the quality. I was thinking about Cabelas just not sure how they will fit and don't really feel like driving to Gonzales.

I've had them all my current ones from macks prarie wings are the best I've seen. The cabelas pair that I had made one year and came up with 2 holes in the boot and they would not cover it. Make sure it says lifetime on the box if you go with theirs.

Bob, the waders I had on when we hunted were the magellan mag 2 and have been the best pair of waders I have ever owned neoprene or breathable. Under Armor/fleece pants are all I needed all but one or two days last season and we don't have blinds. Make sure you don't scrimp on the boots though, get the simms boots without felt sole and your good to go. We'll look like Twins in the marsh.

That's the ones I've got I need to go ahead and get the Simms boots though cause the ones I got don't quite fit right. I bought some Hodgman boots because they were on sale at Academy

Just like anything else,you get what you pay for. Everyone at our camp make fun of me for spending the money on under armor. They won't be laughing when they freezing their tail off and im nice and toasty.

My Cabela's 5mm neoprene waders have held up great for years. I hunt brackish water marsh so not many sticks and branches to deal with. Don't think neoprene would fair too well in thick flooded timber though. No problems for me other than are hot in warmer weather and as others have said somewhat of a pain in the arse to put on.

I used to not believe in the under armor craze either until I tried it, that stuff is amazing
