How do I choose duck hunting waders?
The first factor is what kind of climate you hunt in. If you are always hunting in the warmth, a pair of breathable waders will best suit you. If you are out in the cold, then you are most likely going to want a pair of insulated neoprene waders. These can be found most everywhere in either 3mm or 5mm neoprene.
What is the best material for waders?
Neoprene waders is, without a doubt, the most popular wader material today. This is essentially the same stuff wetsuits are made out of.

Why do you need waders for duck hunting?
Unless you‘re field hunting (another ballgame versus hunting the abundant public places available to today’s waterfowler), you‘ll need waders to wear while slogging through water and muck, setting out decoys, picking up birds and collecting decoys. Nothing makes a hunt more miserable than a leak.

What to consider when buying waders?
Recommendation on Wader Features
- The waders must be breathable.
- The wader should be a stockingfoot wader, as they are more versatile than a bootfoot wader.
- Waders should be as light as possible.
- Unless you fish in near-freezing or sub-freezing weather frequently, there is no reason to get an insulated wader.
Do you wear socks with waders?
Best Socks to Wear With Waders
It is always a good idea to wear socks that go above your ankle to prevent rubbing against the neoprene in the booties of your waders. Longer socks also give you the option to tuck your leg layers in to prevent bunching and cold spots where the skin is directly against the waders.
Are expensive waders worth it?
Short answer for me, yes, they are worth it. Long answer, I’m just your normal fish when I can kinda guy. I’ve had a pair of Simms Guide waders(very similar to the current Guide Stockingfoot) for several years. They were by far the best waders I had owned to that point, and still around 250 bucks.
What do you wear under breathable waders?
By far, the best thing you can wear under your waders on a hot summer day is lightweight fishing pants. The fabric on fishing pants is thin enough to keep you cool, but sturdy enough to handle a ton of days on the water. Additionally, most fishing pants do a phenomenal job of wicking away sweat, and drying quickly.
Are waders worth it?
Yes, waders are more than worth the money. More often than not, one pair of waders is going to last you quite a long time. If you want to hit the water on a poor weather day, you’ll want waders. Plus, winter fly fishing is nearly impossible without waders.
