Hodgman Pipestone Breathable Stocking Chest Waders
Good buy overall.
Nice waders for the price. The material is breathable, thin, and allows for flexibility however you must take care with fishing hooks, blackberries, etc. They really do breath but are also roomy enough to wear extra clothing underneath on those cold mornings. I wore these for about 9 months with total satisfaction until suddenly the neoprene boot sock started leaking. I never walked around in them without wading boots on so the leak must have come from wear & tear from being inside the boot? Although I feel the neoprene boot sock is of poor quality, I would still recommend buying the Hodgman Pipestone waders. Note-I will be buying the booted version VS the stocking type on my next trip to Dicks Sporting Goods.
