Default Old waders?

Do you have a use for old waders when they're no longer usable on the water?

Neoprenes have lots of uses. I've used the cut off feet as socks over nylon stocking foots and just the other day when working on my roof I use my neoprene leg "knee pads"
I've also used the uppers as extra padding so as not to wear out the good waders when using my belly boat.
I think that there's even a company that recycles used waders making wet bags, reel cases and what ever.

I'm like Casey, I thought my old Patagonia waders were done for but Patagonia is resealing them for free.

I once had a weed eater that had a short in the electrical system. It would start and run just fine but sometimes during use it would, and without warning, shock the ever loving bajesus out you. I gave it to a neighbor that I didn't like very much. Needless to say our relationship did not improve.

I cut the stockings off of an old pair of breathables and wear them as splash pants when I kayak. The seams would leak if I wade, but they work fine as dry pants.

Some great idea's guys.
I've already done the same as Swirlchaser and turned them into splash pants, figured they would would also team up well with my Bogg's for the wet and muddy work around here.

Rip Tide has it. Recycled waders is a great place to send them.

I cut the neo feet off just above the gravel guard, razor cut some holes in the sole, and use them as summer wet wading socks. The rest goes to recycledwaders. milt.
