Zippers In Waders


Recommended Posts

  • Members

I am considering purchasing a set of beathable waders with a zippered front. I broke my hip in a car accident a few years back and have a hard time raising my leg high enough to get my waders on easily. Then to try to tie my boots up. Its a pain in my....Hip. I was thinking the zippered front would help, but worry about the zipper leaking. Anyone have any experience goo or bad?

I hear ya! Whoever invents the zippered waders that won't leak will be a millionaire! I once went wading/duck hunting at Grand Pass in waist deep water. We drug a small boat behind us to hold the decoys. We soon discovered that we all had to pee after drinking coffee all morning and had to hold the boat while we all climbed up one at a time take off waders enough to go pee. I guess the zippered waders would have made that process a little easier.

Sorry, more of a comment than useful info! But I don't know of anyone with a pair that works.

My Simms G4Z's I have don't leak and my son in laws Redington waders don't leak. Those are the only 2 brands I can comment on. I like that zipper when nature calls. No more taking off the vest and undoing everything. Unzip, unbuckle belt, take care of business.
