Default Re: I need your opinion - hip waders

Hello Sarina ------ Since you do more hiking than fishing, you might want to keep the waders/boots lightweight. Stocking foot, breathable waders with separate wading boots should be appropriate . This type boot will give you
better ankle support & a snug fit while hiking or in the river; the breathable waders are more comfortable than most. Height, chest or waist, depends upon the water depth you are fishing/crossing. Sole on the boots depends upon the type, [ rocky, sandy etc.], bottom of the river.
Since you fish about 5 times per year, you don't need to spend a lot of money on this. Suggest you look at what Cabelas has to offer starting with their boots & Hodgman waders & go up from there. What you choose can be easily exchanged by your Husband if he would prefer something else.
