So I am told I need to get waders for Duck and Goose hunting mostly at Wister so Neoprene or Canvas? and where is the best place locally or on line? Oh and I likely need 3x or 4x size

Thanks in advance

Hey Ahi,

More than likely on line. I have purchased all of my past and present waders from Cabelas.

I use both - I like the neoprene when it is cold. But for Wister and Southern California I use the canvas. Neoprene is easier to walk in though.

I've never used anything other than waders so I don't know how to compare them to canvas. Early season those neoprene will make you sweat your balls off but they are great with its cold.

Lots of wader options, I am a big Cabelas fan myself. Neos, sweat more, but in my opinion will last longer. Breathables, less sweat, but in my opinion are a bit more fragile and not as long lasting. In a perfect world, I'd have 3 pairs, neos, breathables and some wader pants, but I am a poor man and I only have one pair of 5mm neos, going on their 6th season...

if you're gonna hunt wister, whatever you buy needs to be tough. There are a lot of sticks and crap out there that will definilty poke holes. I would go with neoprene 3mm. Good for all season with a layer underneath in december

I've been using breathable stocking-foot waders for Wister and San Jacinto for a couple years now. They are lightweight, and don't roast you to death on warm days. On cold days, I put on a pair of fleece sweats- no problem with cold. I bought mine at Sports Authority, on sale for about $90, probably 2x or 3x in size.
