Its time to buy a good pair of breathable waders for this upcoming duck season, but i have noticed the camo breathable stockingfoot selection is slim to none. Having worn neoprene for so long, I am tired of sweating my butt off when it isn't super cold. I know everyone recommends Orvis and Simms, but does the lighter, solid color of those waders cause ducks to flare? We are not always hunting in a cozy blind, but often on a shoreline or point off a chosen bay or flat. So all of our gear is camo. Considering Cabelas dry plus, but they are boot foot. What do you guys think? Thanks for your time.

My BPS camo's lasted about 5 yrs for $100 but I don't think they make them anymore. Last year I went to some stocking foot breathables from Orvis. They're very well put together but are only an olive green - seems to blend in with most environments ok. They've also got a camo breathable model that's not as sturdy but it has boots. They are lace ups so the fit pretty well.

I will second the camo, breathable, with lace up boots by Orvis. Not cheap but very comfortable. I have had mine for three years no and no problems. I hunt flooded rice fields, shallow ponds in Garwood area.

Academy sells camo breathables under their Magellen brand during hunting season. I bought a pair last year and as cheap as they are they actually held up very well. I normally ruin a pair of breathables every hunting season and the cheapo Magellens made it thru all last season without a problem. If mine were not a fluke then they are a great value at $80.

I have a couple of pairs of breathables from Orvis. The stocking foot in brown never seems a problem, but honestly my favorites are the Church Creek (via Orvis) camo breathables with boots. They have held up very well and are very comfortable.

Mad Dog Gear makes a very good camo breathable stockingfoot wader. I have one pair that has been in use four seasons now. Price on them is about $130. You can check MDG's web site for dealers.

I've had my Cabela's dry plus boot foot for 3 years and they have held up well. My Dad got 4 seasons out of his first pair and he hunts 3 times a week during the season and travels to hunt a couple of times including Canada. For the price I think that they are a good value.
