My Garbage Bag Waders After Using (click to enlarge)-
Wiggy’s Lightweight Waders Being Used By A Friend (click to enlarge)-
Option Summary -
- 3 mil garbage bags - will work, but very unreliable
- Wiggy Light Weight Waders - very light weight, easy to carry and put on. The problem is that they are not that durable so you have to be careful.
- NEOS River Trekker Overshoe - very durable, but heavy. Good, solid sole. I feel they will allow you to cut through some minor brush.
- NEOS Trekker Overshoe - very durable, solid sole. They can be backpacked with little problems. These are the ones I now carry into wet areas.
In conclusion, some people can tolerate wet feet; but not me. When the going gets wet I now have my gore-tex hiking boots and "overshoes" to protect me from the ugly feeling (also, trench foot and blisters) of wet feet!
