Chest waders are considered by many to be the most versatile fishing wader, allowing you to head into a range of water depths with ease. This type of wader affords you added protection when heading water that’s over-thigh deep and offer added weather protection against wind and rain.
Choose between bootfoot and stocking foot waders. Anglers who wear stockingfoot waders purchase a separate wading boot, enabling them to find footwear that delivers the best fit, support and function for long hours on their feet. Stockingfoot waders are easy to clean and pack down to a relatively compact size—a factor that matters most to anglers who travel.
Bootfoot waders offer the convenience of an attached boot—simply slip them on and go. Anglers heading out into cold conditions benefit from the added warmth of bootfoots.
The material make-up of your fishing chest waders impact their fit and performance.
Neoprene is a popular chest wader material. Neoprene chest waders come in a variety of thicknesses—the greater the thickness, the more insulated the waders. Breathable waders are lightweight and comfortable, working to wick away perspiration during hot days. Anglers who seek out comfort often opt for breathable waders. Rubber waders are heavy, stiff and ultra-durable, ideal for wading through muck and mud.
