Thread: Lightweight Waders

  1. Default Lightweight Waders

    I am new to fly fishing and am looking for some lightweight hip/waist stockingfoot waders that are compact and lightweight to pack in and enable use on multiple day hiking trips. They will not be used often, only 1 -2 times a year, mostly for crossing streams, and a little fishing. I realize you get what you pay for, but for what I am going to use them for, I dont need the highest quality, but I also dont want them to tear easily. Any recommendations?
    Thanks

    I have 2 pairs of Cabela's less expensive waist high's. Love 'em, and they get wet a lot!

    I have LL Bean's Flyweight stockingfoot breathables, that I bought as back ups. They run about $60 USD. I got them about two years ago and I wear them about 80% of the time. Lightweight, durable, compress down to about the size of my raingear bag (approx. 13" x 5"). Comes with a belt so you can wear them like waist waders. Great customer service clinches the deal for me.

    my wife has used the ll bean's flyweights for the past two years and really,really likes them. light,breathable and for 60.00, pretty darn nice.
    that being said, for the additional 30.00, the ll bean emergers are much more durable and will last longer for a much wider variety of situations. are they g4 guide waders? no. but for a hundred bucks you're hard pressed to find better.
