Fly fishing is all about being in the water. Gone are the days that your season is limited by weather or tolerance for cold water. Fly fishing waders continue to advance with technology to feel more comfortable than ever. Waders keep you warm, dry and can help keep your gear accessible. Whether you're looking for conventional chest waders, hip waders ("hippies"), knee waders, boot foot waders, or wading pants, AvidMax has you covered. Our waders come from top quality brands like Patagonia, Orvis, Redington and Chota.
We have styles and sizes to fit men, women, and youngsters. Our selection includes waders for all types of water, weather and preference.
Finding the right waders is about more than just style and fit. Waders that don't fit right aren't just uncomfortable, they can hinder your movements. You don’t want your wading gear to cost you that fish you've spent the last hour teasing out of his hole!
The first consideration is whether you want chest, hip or knee waders. Do you want a boot foot or stocking foot? Are you looking for lightweight packable waders or extra durable material that will stand up to rugged use? We carry a variety of styles and features to fit warm and cold weather and water.
Another wader feature is a matter of personal preference, such as pockets. Anglers know that having your accessories and fly tying tools ready and accessible is a critical piece of the sport. Waders also allow you to add accessories like belts, to help keep your tools convenient.
Waders can be made with many kinds of materials and styles including Gore-Tex, nylon, neoprene, or dri-plus. The differences between these can vary with prices, thickness and breathability. Knowing the conditions that you’ll be fishing in can help ensure that you are getting the best quality and value for your investment. Having the right pair of waders can also help extend your season by allowing you to fish in colder climates and water.
Once you've decided on a style, it's time to find the right size. This is the most important step in finding the right waders. Always measure for waders when you're wearing all of the clothes you anticipate wearing under them on a typical fishing day. If you're buying chest waders in the middle of summer, it's easy to forget about those blustery spring and fall days when you pile on the layers to stay warm! Make sure you allow for those extra layers. Be careful that you’re not getting a size too large however, so you can move easily, and the material won’t fold and wear out quickly.
Depending on the brand and style, our wader sizes range from XS to XXL while lengths include petite, short, regular, tall, long, and extra long. If possible, visit our retail store to try on waders in person. Don't forget to bring your wading boots since you'll be wearing them with your waders.
