I have breathables. I either wear flannel pants or fleece pants depending on the outside temperature.

Fleece pants. On really cold days I'll wear polypro long underwear underneath the fleece pants. I only use breathable waders, and have never had a problem being cold doing this.

I wear polypropelene thermal underwear with fleece wader pants. If it is really cold I wear Under Armour coldweather instead of the polypropelene but I haven't been able to get use to them. I do not really like the compression fit.

This is the ticket to warmth and a much more enjoyable day on the water. Check out Cabela's for the fleece pants. They are inexpensive and work great. Ive had mine for 3-4 years now and still work great. BTW get the ones with the strap that goes under your foot so they dont bunch up on you.

On really cold days I layer with polypro long underwear fleece bibs, Moisture wicking shirt, fleece hoodie, breathable waders, breathable shell jacket.

The fleece Bibs are made by Loop. You can get them at a lot of fly fishing shops. Good stuff!

Yes, they are similar to sweat pants but with stirups to keep pant legs from riding up as you put on your waders. You just need to make sure they are fleece instead of cotton. I got mine at Sportsman's.

First I put on my polypro long johns. Then I put on my fleece Onsie its like fleece overalls with stirups so the pants dont ride up. After that on cold days I put on another pair of thick fleece pants.

No reason to be cold out there.

Under Armour cold wear and a thin pair of columbia zip off fishing pants. Depending on how cold, I could lose either one.

avoid cotton and you will stay warm. Sweat pants are usually made of cotton. Jeans are even worse. Sorry. Cotton just keeps the moisture against your skin where it will chill you. Polypro long underwear as a first layer and either 200 or 300 weight polar fleece pants over that. Mine don't have the stirrups. I find them unnecessary.

"What do you wear under your waders?"

Nothing!




Just kidding!

I have some simms micro fleece long johns that are awesome - if its really cold I will add some fleece pants over those. Wool socks are a must for me in winter. Remember it is important to be able to move your toes freely in your waders and boots. If you cant move your toes you will get COLD FEET!

I wear a pair of thin pants or shorts during the summer. I use Redington fleece pants when it is a little cooler. These work great and are pretty inexpensive. If it is really cold, I will put on Patagonia Capilene underwear underneath the fleece to stay nice and toasty. I have some Merino wool socks for my feet which seem to keep my feet warm regardless of how cold the water is.

But on a serious note, I wear under armour shirt with light fleece jacket, and REI thin fleece pants, sometimes with jeans. I also wear thick wool socks that I used to climb mt hood last spring. Got em at REI for about $15.

I think what most fishermen are calling fleece is better known to Cabela's as wader liners. They are usually fleece with a stirrup on the bottom so they don't pull up when you put your waders on. They are really warm and also work well under hunting bibs. I haven't tried the UnderArmor, but it looks pretty good also.

Patagonia Capilene 3's (High Tech Long Underwear) good to about 30 degrees under my breathables, and very comfy. Below that temp, then I got some cheap fleece pants. Don't like the more bulky fleece pants though, as they bunch up too much 4 me.

This is getting repetitive...

UnderArmor, and fleece pants.

I have a few pairs of fleece pants of various brands and styles, but just got some killer ones from Cabela's that look like cargo pants, only have stirrups for your feet and velcro tighteners for the ankles...get to the takeout, pull up the boat, and when you take off your waders all you have to do is put on your shoes.

Once you undo the tighteners, they look like regular pants, with pockets...no more wandering around looking like a dork in tight fitting fleece pants, or having to change out of your fleece, too, before driving away!

Fish on...

I wear stirrup pants with leg warmers and a flashdance sweatshirt with a pink headband. I'm turning it loose.

What was this thread about?

For breathables, Cabela's 400 fleece wader pants. $29.95 Wear poly pro under them if it's cold.
For neoprene, whatever's comfortable.
