    Default Comfortable waders

    Gents,

    The pro logic max waders I live in when at the lake have finally sprung the inevitable leak.

    Looking at new ones and just wondering what people consider to be comfortable pairs? They have to be the thin type (nylon material I think it is?) as they will be worn the whole time except in the bag.

    Cheers.

    I've got a pair of snowbee ones that the fly anglers wear, had them for 10 years, no leaks and you can wear them all day without sweating, you'll need a pair of wading boots with them, if you shop around on the net you can get both for about 150. Get the boots with a rubber sole as opposed to felt.

    Ive got the Trakker chest waders, nice and comfortable and the material is light and flexible, which makes them really easy to put on, I had neoprene waders prior to these and wouldnt go back to those, I can highly recommend them. Teekay

    Thanks gents.

    Never considered the bootless type before. I'll take a look.

    Heading over to Eric's at Farlows today so will take a look at the trakker ones.

    Think the yellow straps might be a bit too carpy for me!

    Tried on the vass and trakker waders. Wouldn't want to spend the time it takes to picture a fish in them, let alone a whole day. Awful things; poor fit, heavy to wear and the straps don't seem like they'd last very long.

    Elty - Have a look at stocking foot waders from the states with a pair of cheap wading boots. I bought a pair from Cabelas recently and they absolutely superb - very, very light and very comfortable and pack down to next to nothing. Should work out about the same price as 'carp fishing' waders. With respect to the wading boots - look for the cheapest you can find - they are much of a muchness and going cheap won't make much of a difference.

    here is an example - http://www.cabelas.ca/product/1339/c...lar?CatId=2366

    Elty - I've been looking at chesties too. These look good - https://www.fishingmad.co.uk/newbbbf...-delivery.html
    I particularly like the idea of a half neoprene boot which I guess is more comfortable than a full rubber one.

    Unfortunately I have no experience of these and central Scotland is a bit too far from High Wycombe.
    Perhaps someone else has tried them?

    It seems like staying away from carp waders is the way forward.
