Usually jeans, even though a few of the manufacturers strongly advise against it because they're "abrasive". Don't know, never had a problem with jeans damaging my waders.

Nothing.

Once the chaffing and blisters callous over, it's quite freeing.

Haven't had problems with jeans damaging my waders, but I ditched my normal "wader pants" (5 pocket canvas pants from old navy... think extremely lightweight Duluth trading firehose pants) for poly thermal bottoms tucked into my smartwools and it's a lot more comfortable in general.

As a fellow husky dude, I wouldn’t worry too much about it. The dad bod is in, you might score some digits...



I have a friend who used to brag to chicks in bars (with a straight face) that he was a Carhartt model for Fleet Farm. He would then hook his thumbs in his belt loops, lean back on his hips and put his best "come hither" look on. Hilarious.

I’ll have to try that one out😂

My wife said I'm not allowed to score any digits.

I'll have to try that out. Sounds awfully liberating...

Then when it gets really hot, I can just take the waders off and have at it as God intended!

Back in grad school, we had a friend's girlfriend - now wife - convinced that we got on opposite sides of the car, stripped down naked, and put our waders on. I can't imagine how uncomfortable that would be.

Coldwater/weather, I put fleece or long johns under a pair of quick dry pants. I like having pockets and the ability to stop at Kwik Trip or grab lunch or dinner after fishing and look at least a bit like I fit in.

In the warmer weather, I have the quick dry pants under my waders. I know some the wear shorts but I don't like the feeling of waders against my legs. I'll wet wade but only if I know that I'm not going to get into parsnip or nettles. So not all that often.

Close up shop, everybody go home, this is as good as it's gonna get LOL LOL LOL

In all seriousness though...I just wear jeans under the waders. Agree with the above post - can't stand the feeling of the wader material on my skin. In the winter, I'll add smartwool + regular wool socks, and long johns or flannel PJ pants under the jeans - the way I fish, I'm usually in the water for hours at a time, and if the water temp is upper 30s/low 40s, the layers are absolutely necessary with the lightweight/non-neoprene waders I use. I don't have any issue with the jeans wearing out my waders, but buckthorn and barbed wire tend to get to them long before anything else. The main issue I have is that I put so many miles on them that the seams on the booties start to slow-leak after a couple months...fine in summer, but not in winter! I'm on my third pair already since steelhead/salmon last year...but the first two will get plenty more use once things warm up. Considering that's more than 30 outings and probably close to 100 miles hiked, I think I'm getting my money's worth on my $80 LL Beans.

I like the idea of wet wading, but one parsnip burn is enough for my lifetime.
