The price tag is a bit steep but with a 'lifetime' warranty/service plan it could be worth it....depending on what Sitka considers 'reasonable cost.'


Quote:
Sitka stands behind every product they make. Damage due to wear and tear will be repaired at a reasonable cost. Manufacturer’s defects covered by warranty are the following seam failure, leaking seam, separating zipper, seam tape issue, any stitching issues de-lamination issues and boot separation.

Kinda steep? That's not realistic.

Now if camofire puts them up for 80% off that would be reasonable.

I don’t like paying$160 for my waders damn sure ain’t giving a grand for them. That’s almost a mortgage payment.

$949 is a steep price for waders. Some think they're worth it.

If I was a guide hunting every day of the season, maybe. But I don’t see how that’s a viable price for the average guy. For that kinda money you could buy waders, shotgun, lay out, case of shells and a dozen dekes

If I added up what I have spent on waders over the last 5 years due to rips and leaks it would be well over $1000.

That is my thinking. I have purchased a couple of pair of neoprene hybrids from Academy and a couple of cheap breathable that lasted a year or 2. I also have a few friends who have purchased some nicer Cabela's/Drake waders in the $300 range that lasted just over 3 years till they started to have to patch them.

If this is really is a 'lifetime' wader then it could be cheaper in the long run depending on the type of 'service' they offer for them.

Cabela’s used to/has the same warranty, as far as manufacturers defects. Had a pair for 5 years that started leaking around the boot. Took them up there last year and told me to walk over and get a new pair. Printed me an exchange receipt and I was out the door.
As far as wear and tear, what’s a “reasonable cost”, and what about shipping and repair time? I guess if you’re that hard on your waders it may be worth it.

I've never had to send a sitka product back for repair but everyone I've heard of who has sent them back has had their stuff back in less than 2 weeks.

If it is something small I'm willing to bet they fix it for free. If it is something big like a tear from your nipples down to your toes I bet they will throw them away and give you a new pair for substantially less than what you originally paid.

If you buy them, let us know how you like them. My two cents, if I was gonna spend that kinda money on waders I would expect to make a phone call and have a new pair shipped next day air (small repair or leak). I wouldn’t want to be out a $1k pair of waders two weeks out of the season, nor would I expect to be.

If it was a manufacturer defect I'm sure they would do that. If you rip your waders on a pair of barbed wire that is on you and they shouldn't be put out for overnight shipping because of it. Also I'm sure they could have them back to you a lot sooner than 2 weeks if you asked them.

They have sent us badarse goretex patches for some knicks we got in waterproof jackets that I'm sure they will include with their waders for small fixes. Then after the season I'm sure you could send them in to have them professionally repaired. We filmed a hunt with RNT-V this past January and they all had them on. I was impressed by what I saw and although goretex is expensive, the materials are not worth $1000. It is the lifetime warranty you are paying for. Similar to Yeti coolers. I had 5 yeti hoppers because the zipper kept breaking until they finally sent me a tundra 45 to replace it. All for the price of 1 Yeti Hopper. If that had been an RTIC soft cooler I would have thrown 5 coolers away.

Mine should be here by no later than teal season so I will report back once I have had a chance to wear them for a month or so.
