I think I'd like to invest in some insulated waders to facilitate swamp hunting (ducks AND deer)

I have some uninsulated sock-foot waders, but no insulated ones. Can anyone recommend a brand/model that's reasonably priced quality construction (or perhaps more importantly, the ones to avoid)?

Thanks!

Most of the guys I hunt with swear by the Cabela's SuperMags but I have heard good things about the Rogers Toughmans and those will likely be my next pair.

I just bought a pair of Lacrosse Super-Tuffs at Basspro. I went these because I paid just under $100 with my rewards points and a gift card. I haven't used 'em yet but I hope they're good.

NOT this years model. Macks went to a new manufacturer and from what I hear people are NOT pleased. Seams leak and boots rub the crap out of your shins. I have a pair of Macks I bought a few years ago and they are great. But I will NOT buy another pair. I've had first hand experience with the guy that runs the wader section at Macks and he's a real...! I recommend Hodgeman, Columbia or Cabelas they are all good brands.

I purchased a pair of Lacrosse 10 years ago! Thumbs up all the way. Would have though by now "cracks and leaks" still no issues. Of course hang them inverted in a cool place off season. But watch out ....... found a hornets nest inside once. HA

I've had lacrosse in the past and got no complaints. Currently on a set of Mack's waders that are about 4 years old and really like them, other than a mouse chewed a hole in them. Also heard great things about the cabelas waders. Stay away from drake. I don't have any personal experience, but too many of my friends have had to take theirs back for leaking around the seams.

Let me start by saying I know nothing about waders. That said going on my first duck hunt I didn't want to break the bank. Gander Mtn had some Columbia 3.5 mm neoprene with 600 gram thinsulate boots for $100. They worked well but my feet did get cold although that's normal just about anytime.

Got some Rogers toughman waders and they seem well made as long as you do not try to swim in them!!!!!
