What type of the waders are you using. I have the heavy duty version and find I sweat a lot in them no mater how cold it is. WIll always have patches of wet but these dry very quickly. I know the lighter versions dont seem to have this issue as much.

As the title of the John Gierach book infers there are only three certainties in life:

Death, Taxes and Leaky Waders.

I've had Snowbee Neoprene waders: they leaked in the second season.

I had Climb8 breathable waders: they leaked in the second season in multiple places. That winter I spent good money with Diver Dave to get them repaired. They leaked again within a few months.

I then got cheap breathable waders from AliExpress. Less than half the price of Climb8. They did the whole season and leaked at the very end. I have done a repair job with Aquasaure and will know this week how well I will get on. If they leak I'll get another pair from China without a second thought.

So my experience is that all of them leak. If I get a €600 pair of Simms Waders: will they last 10 times longer than the €60 AliExpress Waders? Not a chance in hell. they might last two seasons or maybe three
