A Classic Hip Wader


It’s hard to find anyone who makes a decent, bootfoot hip wader anymore. With the popularity of waterproof/breathable waders, most manufacturers have simply abandoned offering a hip wader, which is too bad. For those days when you just want to throw something on quickly and go hit a creek without bothering with the whole separate waders and boots thing, bootfoot hippers are great. Great for getting in and out of a boat too.

These are the classic canvas/rubber 3-ply hip waders by Hodgman.

(Update 10/12: Sadly, it appears that Hodgman no longer makes these).

    If you’re looking for a good hip wader Orvis still makes them believe. I’ve had mine for several years and no complaint.
