Chest waders can be an expensive purchase depending on what brand you choose. I was given the opportunity to review Field & Stream Seneca Breathable Chest Waders, a quality wader that won’t break your budget. The product features a 3-layer polyester fabric that uses a Dupont Teflon Shield+ Fabric Protector to repel not only water, but oil and stains. The booties are made of 3mm neoprene and offer abrasion-resistant nylon gravel guards. This helps to keep rocks out of your waders and provide extra durability around your feet. I found the waders to be both comfortable and durable. I was impressed that they featured reinforced knee patches. I use my waders frequently so the fact that they are very durable put my mind at ease.
The waders fit well and are comfortable when sitting in a kayak or boat. The adjustable X-back suspenders with elastomer straps allow for a customized fit for any individual. The waders feature a front-zippered pocket, allowing for easily-accessible tackle. It also serves as an excellent spot to store your fishing license. The waist strap is a must when out on the water. This helps to keep water from rushing into your waders in a case you tip, fall or slip into the river. These waders sell for $139.99 and are comparable to waders that sell for twice that price. I look forward to providing an update on how the waders hold up over time when I fish more rivers this fall.
