Hip wader upgrade

modeling the new chest waders


These new chest waders are a bit harder to put on than my old hip waders, but the extra distance and warmth makes up for the small hassle.

The boot tread is better suited for our conditions here compared to the felt bottom on the hip waders.

I went with a neoprene material from Pro Line for 180 dollars.

Boots, hip waders, chest waders. So I guess the next "upgrade" is a wetsuit? ;-)

Personally, I would start thinking about building a bridge to save myself the hassle.

BTW, you might want to acquaint yourself with the procedures for repairing neoprene.
