Throw it in the freezer when your done. It will eventually dry out once you open it. I tried this, probably read it on here, and it works. Just run it under some warm or hot water if you need to use it again.

I'll try that when I'm through JCW thanks! I just have to make sure my wife doesn't think its some exotic cooking item. That would be an interesting dinner.

Quick update...

I layered the Aquaseal with 3 thin coats about 24 hours apart and took the waders out for a test. Other than the sweat pouring off my body from being wrapped in waders when it was 104 degrees outside, I stayed dry to the bone!

It feels good to be back in the game!

Thanks for the help

Just curious. Why are you wearing waders when it's 104° outside?

I wear them only when it's too freezing cold not to wear them. Usually, I just wet wade.

I guess I just always have. I'm often wading over the waist for extended periods of time (water temp at about 65 degrees right now). It can get a bit cold after a few hours, the waders help with that.

I'm not sweating in the water, it's usually the walk to the river and to the spots along the way.

Maybe its not the perfect way to go, but it works (other than the sweat).
