Hip waders, really?

$40 for the rubber Pro-Lines. I remember when they used to be $20 regular price at Dicks and you could find them in those wire bins on sale for $12.99. I was looking for something cheap that I could leave in the car and throw on when I needed to wet a line after work. Did anyone happen to see them on sale at Wal-mart or anything?

I've seen them on sale at Dicks within the past year for $15. Don't know when. Might just do it in the lead up to the season, or to get rid of inventory or something....

I let a pair sit in my garage for six months once, then they cracked and now they leak.

Lame.

That is lame. Mine would crack in short order if I left them folded. Guess I'll just continue to use my chesties till I catch em on sale...

I prefer the Neoprene slip overs....no cracking and dry rotting...and best of all, wear them with your comfortable boots instead of having your foot in some oversized giant rubber boot thats not molded to your foot shape in any way?

Thanks. I'll have to swing past wal-mart in KOP one day.

I'm good in the wader department, I just wanted something cheap and with a bootfoot to save the time of "wadering up" on the small streams around here.

I still like the convenience of hip boots on small streams.
I bought a pair of hodgman canvas hippers with felt soles about 3 years ago, and they are holding up fine. Don't have to worry about them cracking.
I paid around $35 for them I believe. Considering the price of breathables, still quite cheap IMO

Walmart also has $40 neoprene stocking foot waders. Check the online price, sometimes it's cheaper than in the store and you can ship from online to the store for free.

Honestly, hip waders are the best choice for mucking around spring creeks and some small streams.

I might be getting a pair too, assuming I can get them cheap.

Even more so than some of the 'waist' waders?

Yes. The idea is that they can be thrown in the trunk, easy on/off, cheap, can get filthy, and can be easily rolled down. I am sure there are others reasons why they work well, but that's enough for me.

It tends to be 56 trillion degrees in the swamps around a spring creek in the dead of summer. You usually can't wade them anyway.
