Waders?

Post by SD44 » Tue Nov 12, 2013 9:49 pm

I am looking to purchase a new set of waders for the upcoming season. Looking for some recommendations. Prefer quality over price. Thanks

I have Cabelas Ultimate waders & really like them, fit great, very warm & I like the velcro straps.

Cabelas waders here, not sure what they're called but cabelas only makes a few. Mine are 3mm thick but they have some 5mm thick (thickest anyone makes) that are real heavy duty.

Cabelas ultimate. Armor flex is a must. I have had mine three seasons no leaks and for me that is a miracle my friends get at least two pairs a year

Thanks for everyone's input. I have looked into the Cabela's Ultimate and like what I see especially the no-buckle straps. How warm are the Ultimate's?

I do not know about the ultimates, but I have the supermags in both waist highs and chest and both are toast toasty...Had them now for a few years and they are pretty durable.

I agree on the Cabelas ultimates. Nice thing about them is if they spring a leak I have always had good luck with Cabelas replacing them even if they were a couple of years old.

Thanks again for all the recommendations. I will have to make the trip over to Cabelas and try on both the Ultimate and the Supermag's and see which ones fit the best but sounds like I can't go wrong with either one.

Yeah I was going to say something about the supermags as well. The supermags are so nice to get in and out of. It's all I buy anymore.

I have a pair of the Cabelas 3mm w/400 gram thinsulate boots, had them for 3-4 years without any issues. I'll wear insulated pants and heavy socks if it's really cold out.
That said if you have a Scheels near you their return policy is excellent should they spring a leak.

Warm, I have sat in snow & stood in water as it froze around me while hunting.
