Best economical waders
I bought a pair of FroggToggs Bullfrogs and they are by far the best waders Ive ever owned. Got them for around 200 from Sportsman Guide. They always have great deals on waders. I wouldnt shop anwhere else for them.
The one thing about the FroggToggs, there boots run the same size as regular boots. For example, I usualy wear a 10.5-11 boot, and in cabelas waders ill wear a 10. the froggoggs i wear a 11. there boot structure is probally the best ive ever worn in a wader.http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/browse/mens-footwear-waders.aspx?c=11&s=450
and i know the comments will be coming that i should have been prepared but things happen and the slush funds dwindle
Comments about Gander Mountain Guide Series® 3.5mm Neoprene Stout Boot-Foot Waders, Advantage® Max-4™ Camo:
The rubber on boot is very thin. Will rip on any stick up. Ripped 2nd time I wore them. Front of boot is now starting to dry rot. Seam that separates handwarmer and other pocket came loose after 3 wears. Leaks at seams. I am not very hard on my waders, these things just feel apart. Asked Gander Mtn. about warrenty on waders was told they do not have warrenty on them. They are the only company I have delt with that dont replace waders when they dont perform as they should. Stay away from these.
Too all people reading, I attest, when you buy quality, u get quality.
if u buy 3.5's expect non-stop holes, and your mentality will be all waders get holes like that,. when u buy 5mm with armor flex u probably will not be getting them holes. u will be comfortable warm and safe. and great customer service when you do have problems. well worth the extra money. trust me. and trust the 400 people that reviewed the supermags.
Buy cabela's and your buying the best plus they back up there craftsmanship with the BEST customer service in the industry.
When you bust the seem on those gandermountain ones you think they will give you a brand new pair? what about after u own them for 5 years?
You will never regret getting them. ever. (maybe if its hot outside haha)
If you buy cheap, expect cheap performance. ripped seams, holes, cold leaky boots, tearing boots ect.
Now alot of people will argue that a tube of silicon and a cheap pair of waders will get you through. but trust me. when its 10 degrees outside those people will stare at your waders worshipping you. Hands down, i will never own a different wader.
Don't take my word for it. read the 400 reviews with an average rating of 4.7/5.0 on cabela's website.
If you get hot and sweaty real easily stick with the 3.5mm neoprene. If not the 5mm arent bad, good pockets are a plus. Id take no less than 1000 grams of insulation in the boot, the boot insulation is most important especially if you stand in water for extended periods.
