    Default Ladies: I need hip waders, any suggestions?

    Trying to de-cheat and teach lines to my Golden without the collar. Need a pair that will fit me, not a small man. I'm 5'6" and fairly fit for a middle aged chick. Any suggestions on brands?

    Oh yeah, need em for duck hunting too...

    Cheapest you can find. You won't likely use them more than a few times. Hip waders suck.

    Buy a cheap pair of breathable waders then go pop some tags at your thrift store for a pair of mens hiker style boots to use for your wading boots.

    I have been miserable in every pair of waders with the built in boots that I have tried. I would use stocking foot waders and wading shoes. If it is not too cold, you could just wear wading shoes or sandals with neoprene socks. I've fished in pretty cold water wearing shorts and neoprene socks and it was not bad.

    If your dog handles effectively you can de-cheat as other trainers do, only without taking the easy way out and pushing a button.

    Are you talking hip waders or chest waders? Cabela's carries waders for women.....they recently came out with dri-plus waders so you don't have to deal with the weight of neoprene.

    Thanks guys - great ideas!!!

    Evan - too true. But I always end up with water in my boots anyway - I'm not the least clumsy person I've met.

    Sportsman Wharehouse usually has good deals on last years models, search Caddis for wimmens. Buy a wading boot 2 sizes larger than what those wet ones you wear are and it will be MoNEY.

    I have some Simms chest waders that I love. They make them in womens sizes for both the waders and the boots. They have an excellent repair kit too. I use mine a lot when fishing. I take them home and hose them off. The come pretty clean (I can get really covered in blood and fish slime if we are dip netting). I would think they would be great for using with dogs. I do find that our water up here is very cold and I can spend all day in the water in these if I have good wool layers underneath. Nothing like finding outdoor gear made for real women!

    I'm no lady, but I found a nice pair at Cabela's for my best half. Not real spendy and have held up nicely.
