I need to get some new breathable duckhunting lighters. Was checking them out on Rogers, and on Cabela’s. I’m not excited about spending $500 on these. Anybody have any recommendations in the $200-$300 range. I have been wearing my fishing breathable waders With lace up wading boots which is much more comfortable, but I finally tore of them.

I love my Frog Toggs. Really solid, 2 years no leaks and they have some nice features.

Stay away from Cabela's New Breathables. Biggest boot I've ever seen on a wader.

I also wasn't a fan of Drake's Eqwader Breathable. Material felt really cheap.

I have a pair of the Rogers Elite Insulated Breathable 2 in 1 on the way. Should be here this week and I can let you know my impression.

I agree on the Cabela’s boots being big. I’ve had several pair of their breathable‘s and I wasn’t overly impressed for the price.

If you want cheap, go to academy.

I like cabelas breathable waders with the exception of the undersized elastic straps, but they don’t stand behind their products anymore. But they are a good cheap option, don’t expect to get more than a season or two out of them if you hunt often.

I have been using some Simms and like them a lot. Have heard good things about Frog Toggs too.

Frogg Toggs are great breathables. Will last a season. That's as good as it gets for the price point.

Which Simms are you using? Bootfoot or Stocking?

Caddis Waders. Big in the fly fishing world. We have been wearing their camo breathable's for 10 or so years. The pair I just wore teal hunting is going into it's 5th or 6th season. And yes we wear them all season long, just layer up if it gets to cold.

Had one boot sole problem out of the 8-10 pairs my friends and family are wearing and they replaced them know problem. Should fit your budget also.

Orvis Clearwaters will run you about $200 and they stand behind what they sell. Can still wear your lace up boots.

Only issue may be that they seem to be gray in color now. If you're standing in timber or something they may not work.

I am using Simms G3 stockingfoot waders with some orvis boots. Got them both on off season sale for under $400 total.

I have been wearing simms g3 for close to 10 years with no issues. I wear them alot, flyfishing to duck hunting. They have held up beyond expectations. They are stocking foot and I run a nice pair of simms boots with them. You won't be able to stay in your budget, but know they are extremely comfortable and well built. When I wear my current pair out I plan on getting a new pair.

I'm simms fan but I picked up a back up pair of frogg toggs Men's Pilot River Guide HD Stockingfoot Wade. Been pleased. Only complaint is I wish they would of used the brush guard material that's on the Legs on the seat as well, but that's more of longevity thought not performance


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Curious if your waders came in and how you like them?

I like my Frogg Togo’s, worked great last year.
I’ve seen a lot wearing Banded. The first gen Banded didn’t do to good. My understanding is they changed up the seams and stitching and the gen 2’s are pretty good.

Really happy with the fit and feel. Boots are great. So far I'm happy.
