I've been using redhead extreme neoprene waders for the 10 or so years. Don't have really any complaints, they are plenty warm ( too warm for east Texas most of the year) and BPS has exchanged them twice for leaking seams. I'm looking for a change and wanted some real field experience with any of the following pairs of waders.

Banded Redzone

Drake eqwader 2.0 mst
http://www.mackspw.com/Item--i-DRW8311

Game winner hybrid
http://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/game-win...ldCatid=1134362

Price not a determining factor. Durability in the field, comfort, longevity over several seasons.

Thanks Coach

I love the Mack's PW Big Ditch. I have no complaints on them.

Have you ever looked at/considered Gator Waders?

I am actually best friends/roomates with the owner. Started out as a small company here out of Tyler, Texas and has quickly grown into a pretty large company. Used to only make waders to ride ATV's in but now have full hunting series waders. Their waders fit much better than some of the others, have a fold out waterproof cell phone pocket,the zip in the front for easy access, etc..I promise you wont be dissapointed with them.

website is www.gatorwaders.com . i can probably get you a discount too, just let me know.

I have the drake mst waders. Got them last year and have no complaints. A few things that make them better are the flexible knees, the pockets, and the gstirs over the boots. They do run a little big on boot size. I bought mine in January for 150 at Macks PW. Better than that 350 dollar price tag!

I have found that if used enough, they all leak, therefore, I buy my waders like I buy my beer..... Whatever is on sale! The GW waders for $150 is what I have been using. I typically go through 2, sometimes 3, pairs per year. Doesn't matter if they are Drake, Lacrosse, Red Head, or MPW. Maybe I should be easier on them I guess.

Glad to hear yours have worked out okay. My brother bought a pair of the GW Hybrids last year that leaked terribly. He returned them and the second pair leaked exactly the same way.

Not saying all Game Winners are bad. I've got a pair of the cheapest ones money can buy (http://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/game-winner-mens-neoprene-boot-foot-waders?repChildCatid=868697) and I haven't had a problem in three seasons. Well, other than that time I got in a fight with some barbed wire...

I've been intrigued by this company's waders. I might really look into them soon, as I am thinking about getting some camo waders.

Three things guaranteed in life death taxes and holes in your waders so might as well but the cheap ones.

Don't know which waders to tell you to buy. I can say this, don't buy used waders from LSU.
