I'm looking at getting a new pair of waders, I've been looking at the LaCrosse Brush Tuff II Neoprene Waders. Has anybody had any experience with them or great experience with another wader? I'm looking for a good reliable pair that wont leak after a few uses. Thanks!

I have a $260 pair of Lacrosse waders and they didn't make it through one duck season... I will never buy Lacrosse again

Cabelas waders are good if you only hunt one or two days a week
I Have had 4 par in the past 4 years every pair
Started leaking at the seams and I didn't by
The cheap ones. The next par I buy will be from
Macks.

Why buy from Macks? Cabelas will exchange them if they leak...

Don't laugh but I'm thinking about springing on some new waders.

I've got a pair of Cabelas waders, bone dry extremes from bass pro, and a pair of columbias.

Bass Pro and Cabelas have both exchanged them numerous times if I have gotten a leak. The Columbias are my go to waders right now; I'm oddly shaped and they fit the best and are holding up pretty good.

Not a fan of the LaCrosse stuff.

Thanks for the replies! I think im gonna go with the Cabelas SuperMag 1600 Chest Waders, I'm only going to be hunting maybe once or twice a week so they should hold up and it says on their website that Cabelas brand products are lifetime guaranteed.

I hunted in Cabela's for yrs, a couple of yrs ago went to Mack's and will never go back, design and features alone attracted me, toughness sold me. I have a pair or breathables and a pair of the Big Ditch 3.5mm neoprene that are both on their second season and a couple of pairs in the closet that were bought just because they were on sale and for backups if need be.

A Cabela's has changed their tune on returns and replacements, 1yr was what they told me when the daughter's started leaking, and the were the La Cazadora(sp?) and they were not cheap and had seen maybe 5 timber hunts when they let go.

I hve been using these this year. They seem to be doing ok so far. I shoulda got a size smaller. I think they run a little big. It's been kinda warm for neoprene though.

I have these breathable style waders:

They've held up good so far and are great for early season hunting. When it gets colder, I just wear more layers.

Cabelas! I own two pair both breathables. The first got a leak along the seam but I fixed them....however I just found out they have a slow leak now. At this point I'm not hunting too many spots where I'm standing in water and the leak I have is only a problem when I get in deeper waters. If I know that I'll wear my newer ones.

All waders will eventually leak if your a hunter. Doesn't matter the price of em nor the maker. They can al tear or get punctured. My advise is to get what you can afford that has an excellent return policy because you will eventually be using it.

Very true about all will get leaks. I'd say the fit is very important and for that reason alone I'd be reluctant to get some from Macks since I would have to mail order them and not be able to try them on before.

Thanks! I'll probably go ahead and buy a pair of LaCrosse brush tuff II from L.L. Bean since they have a true 100% guarantee and will replace anything if it breaks.
