Breathable fishing wader sizing is important. Breathable fishing waders do not stretch like neoprene and
it is best to allow an inch to an inch and a half in inseam to allow
for stooping and bending in breathable waders.
Neoprene is waterproof and a fairly good insulator. Neoprene fishing waders are a must for cold water
wading. Walleye are in the rivers as soon as ice is out. A 5mm neoprene fishing wader is best for such icy waters. 3mm neoprene may be the best fishing wader for winter reds on the Gulf coast. Neoprene fishing waders come in bootfoot and stockingfoot. Bootfoot waders are easy on and off and offer the added feature of insulated boots. Stockingfoot neoprene fishing waders are lighter and less expensive but require wading boots or shoes as well.
