    Re: Waders sprung a leak. Buy expensive, buy cheap or try to fix?

    Revisiting my old thread. My replacement 3mm Cabelas waders developed holes in the seat since the last spring. In fact in fall 2019 they had developed holes already but I gooped the hell out of them. Trying it out before this current season of fall 2020 I did another round of repairs and it seems I didn't get them all as I've discovered the past two weekends.

    Sad as I wanted to get at least two years out of them. Mind you this last year I wasn't working at all so I went out maybe 40 times so maybe that is just too much use for them.

    Time to research new waders...

    I have a pair of simms for fishing, no holes/leaks for 10 years. For the marsh i run a pair of TideWe's. Around $150 from amazon.ca, no issues 1 year in.

    I bought a pair at Canadian Tire. I've had 4 or 5 seasons out of them. No leaks. I did put a hook through them a few times but I used Zap-a-gap since I had it for my flies. It's waterproof and I just dabbed it a few times over a couple hours and no leaks.

    I was looking at those. For the price even if it only lasts one year might be worth it.

    Regardless, buy cheap if you are going into a duck swamp with them.

    I ordered some Frog Toggs breathables that had decent reviews. My first breathables. Hoping they work out and now have to figure out how to layer better underneath. With neoprenes I was always okay with wool socks and one layer of merino long johns
