Types of Fishing Waders - A Buying Guide

Where and what time of year you will be fishing (as well as your own personal preferences) are the main factors in choosing a style of fishing waders. Keep in mind that chest waders and hip waders are available in neoprene or waterproof/breathable fabric.

Neoprene
Fishing Waders
Chest fishing waders cover your chest and back and are held up by suspenders. They look similar to bib overalls and allow you more flexibility when fishing rivers and streams. Bootfoot fishing waders come with the boot permanently attached to the wader, making them quicker and easier to put on. They are also excellent for coldwater fishing, as extra space inside the boot provides air pockets that keep your feet warm in cold water. These have fitted neoprene stocking feet attached to the bottom of the wader, usually made from neoprene. With stockingfoot fishing waders, it is necessary to buy a pair of wading boots. The advantage of the stockingfoot is that you can buy a wading boot that fits your foot, a big plus if you're doing a lot of hiking. Traditional neoprene fishing waders come in thicknesses from 3 mm to 5 mm. Neoprene is a close-fitting, waterproof wetsuit material that is excellent for the cold conditions of late autumn, winter and early spring. It is resistant to tears from fly hooks, thorns and brush, and it is easily repaired.

Hip
Fishing Waders
Nylon fishing waders offer a great inexpensive alternative to both neoprene and breathable waders and are generally hard wearing. Nylon waders are great for someone brand new to the sport who will not be using the waders extensively and who is on a limited budget. Manufactured from the same material as breathable clothing but in a heavier fabric. The added advantages of breathable waders are that they can easily be rolled up into a backpack for extended trips. Breathable waders are ideal for summer fishing but with the correct layering system they can be used right through the colder winter months too. These are cooler and lighter-weight than chest waders. Hip waders pack easily into a backpack, making them easy to take along on an extended hike-in or when you're- traveling by plane. Neoprene hip waders are bulkier, but not as hot as neoprene chest waders.
