Im looking to purchase my first set of waders. Looking for insight on the best pair for me, im 6 ft north of 300lbs. Looking for recommendations on waders that are durable and insulated. trying not to break the bank but willing to spend on quality. brands or places to purchase would be greatly appreciated!

Rogers Sporting Goods- Toughman Waders. They aren't expensive, and are pretty decent quality for the price point. I also have a pair of Columbia Neoprene waders that are along the same lines. I got those at Theisen's.

Check the Bargain Cave at Cabela's. I was about to drop 300 on a pair at Scheels and found a pair in The Bargain Cave for $120

I know you said insulated but I use uninsulated and add LJ's + Wader Pants and have no problems getting cold. Also use the wader pants in December when I shotgun deer hunt. Get WOOL socks w a liner. Baby powder the inside of liner sock which helps keep your feet dry.

Look at the Cabelas big man breathables.

I have had a pair for 10 years. They don't have any insulation but they have enough space to layer as the year goes. I ear shorts early season followed by UA tights, fleece pants and another outer shell with a thin pair of wool socks followed up with merino wool socks.

I can hunt 70 degrees down to -10 in with these.
