A couple months back I found my Herters Three Forks Hip Waders on sale at Cabelas for only $29 a pair. I love a great deal, so I bought two pair.

Now I see they've lowered to price to $19 - although with limited sizes available.

At these prices, you can't go wrong for a decent pair of rugged hip waders. I usually go through a pair of these every couple seasons, so now I'm set for the foreseeable future.

Super cool, I just ordered a pair of insulated lug soles, as the stocking feet version was only available in size M and I need a L at least.

I have some shoemaking skills, and so bought a size above my usual. I have a very stiff TPM sockliner that will address the fact that the soles are apparently not too stiff. People complained about feeling rocks through them.

I used to use chest waders, and they're really necessary back West, but since coming here, I have only needed pants waders, and often not even them. I tend to run hot, and would parboil in the chest waders. These will be perfect. I'll carry around a tube of Shoe Goo in case of leaks. In fact, I'll probably hit the seams with it before I even use them. I love Shoe Goo.

So yesterday I took my daughter to Joanne Fabric, to buy her some art supplies. Perusing the aisles, as I do, I saw a 4-pack of Shoe Goo that had one tube missing, and the price had therefore been dropped from 5 bucks to a single dollar. I snapped it up. I've read about some issues at the seams of these hip waders, so I'm going to use the Shoe Goo on likely spots before I start using them.

Nice Trapper!

I think the deep discounts on these hip waders mean that Cabelas (AKA: Bass Pro Shops) will be phasing these out. Even at $60 they were a decent deal in my book. They wear like iron and do a great job of protecting your legs from brush and weeds. They can be a little warm on hot days, but I just roll them down until needed to cross streams. They're cheap enough that I can keep a backup pair (along with spare boots) in the trunk. Always nice to switch over to dry waders on a multi-day trip.

Just an FYI;

Cabelas no longer carries the Herters brand of stocking foot hip waders. They do have their own similar version Cabelas Three Forks Stockingfoot Hip Waders for $70.

Back in November I picked up a pair of the chest and a pair of the hip waders for under $19 a pair thanks to their year round 5% Veterans discount.
