Why We Made This

Waterfowl hunters deserve to have a set of waders that can excel year in and year out, throughout the duration of the season. We set out to build the best pair of waders–ever. Constructed from GORE-TEX® Pro Laminate, the face fabric offers added durability and is breathable in active working conditions and insulating when the mercury drops. The center YKK® AQUASEAL® Zipper makes these waders incredibly easy to take on/off and is 100% waterproof. The LaCrosse® AeroForm® insulated boots give you a form fit without the need for a bulky sock, and the treads will handle the slickest rocks, mud or snow. The boots are attached to the wader with advanced heat-activated technology, creating a streamlined joint. Zippered, water-resistant chest pockets secure essentials while high hand-warmer pockets deliver instant warmth. Adjustable no-buckle suspenders won’t interfere when shouldering your shotgun. We stand behind all of these features and more with our 100% serviceable guarantee.

These are GIGANTIC! I'm 6' tall, 180 lbs. and ordered the size 11 Large (smallest size for a size 11). The top of the zipper of the waders standing up straight are almost at my eye level and the girth is for a very heavy person; disappointing since most Sitka gear is sized more appropriately. The boots are very large and clunky, I have other lacrosse boots and not nearly as burly as these things. I tried to call customer service to check on the size before I spent $1,000 but their CS dept is non-existent. Now I'll have to spend money just to send them back. First product I've ever not completely loved from them. If the size was more "normal" i'd probably love them

Great product, horrible customer service.
I would say buyer beware. I bought a pair this season and they shipped to me with only one insole. So after two trips of walking thru the swamp and realizing that my whole right side of my body (foot, knee and hip) were killing me from walking basically uneven for two days, I sent an email for a request for a right insole. I got no response then went on ahead to call several more times just be on hold for hours. After a few more attempts I finally reached a representative who said “Did you consider going to the store and buying replacement insoles when you noticed one missing?” I was shocked and said “No, actually I expected to receive both insoles in a pair of waders I paid $1,000 for”. He then said I understand and am sorry for the problem. I said it’s no big deal as things happen. He said the earliest I can do is 4-6 weeks on that insole and that I can take your address down and mail that out to you as soon as possible. This was during our early teal season in Michigan (the first 15 days of September) and he assured me that I would have the insole for the full duck season come October 10. It is now January, our duck season has passed, and I still have yet to receive a right insole for the waders I bought directly from their website and paid $1,000 for. I even tried calling and leaving an email weeks ago to follow up to yet again receive no response.

Worth every penny! Great piece of equipment. These are just flat out built right. Best boot on a wader I have ever tried. No more saggy baggy crotch to the knees waders. Zipper is a great feature also. Perfect for busting ice with the extra knee protection. Yes they are expensive but you get what you pay for. Nice job Sitka!

Initial review. I haven't had a chance to take these out and test them yet, but as size goes. I am 6'1'' 200 lbs and usually wear 11.5-12 shoes/boots. The Large and size 11 waders fit great.

I’ve been waiting for months to get a pair of these waders. My size finally came in and I ordered the waders and some other items. Long story short, they mis-shipped my waders so I got everything but the thing I was looking forward to most. Whomever got my waders is probably dancing in the street. Now I have to wait until Dec 22nd to get a pair.
So I’m texting this, sitting in my tub, trying to identify and patch all the holes in my old waders. Lol. Good hunting!

I have dang near every waterfowl item sitka makes and doubles of some items.. this review is about the waders not the company or other products..ok maybe a little about customer service which has been ZERO since covid. I have sent emails and waited far too long on the phone multiple times for someone to answer which never happens. My waders are just about a year old, have no tears or nicks or anything like that but yet I am soaked when I get done hunting. I thought last season maybe I was sweating due to they layer system so I didn't pay much attention to it. This year first day out with very little clothing on.... wet again and not from sweating. The waders just leak... straight up. All over I have spots that leak and have pictures to prove it. So needless to say I am now that guy that bought ALL the sitka gear and is currently wearing CABELAS WADERS and being the laughing stock of the dang pond!!!! because there is ZERO customer service right now and I can't even go buy a new pair which I have also been trying to do since the discovery but you can't buy any now either because they are out of stock!

I have been really looking forward to getting these waders and putting them through the paces of duck season. To start the waders might be the most comfortable waders I have ever worn and they fit great, the boots are by far the best and most comfortable wader boots I have ever worn. I am tall and athletically built, right in between a L and XL, the LT fits like I had taken them down to the tailor and made just for me. I have hunted in neoprene waders my whole life getting away with thin sweat pants as my base layer but these defiantly require something thicker for when the weather turns. I think I waited about 6 months to place an order for these and was finally able to order them back in September, other than wearing them around the house, the first time in the water with them was opening day of the first split in OH. Day started out great, was loving the waders until they got caught on a stick getting into the blind and ripped. Not a small rip either, probably about 4", right on the inside of the thigh, it wasn't a very big stick. Wasn't able to hunt the next day where my buds limited, tight. As someone who owns a ton of Sitka Gear, across all of their lines, and has never had any issues. I am extremely let down by how quickly these failed.

Maybe one of these days I will get a response from Sitka, seeing as I have sent them multiple emails with no response.

I bought these waders for my husband last year as a Christmas present so we've had them about 10 months now. We live in Montana and in addition to being waterfowl hunters we also do a significant amount of fly fishing so these waders get used quite often. For size reference my husband is 6'1" and weighs about 200 lbs with a muscular build. We got the LT in size 12 which is his normal boot size and they fit great. They're incredibly versatile. He's worn them during the summer wade fishing in rivers with temperatures close to 100 degrees as well as during our cold winters when temps can drop to -20 degrees. I think the part I'm most impressed with about these waders, though, is the guarantee that comes with them. Up until about a week and a half ago we hadn't needed the warranty but my husband managed to put a large gash through the neoprene part of one of his boots literally the weekend before duck season started. We shipped the waders back to Sitka with a prepaid shipping label and 7 days after Sitka received them at their repair center they were sitting on my doorstep with a brand new pair of boots attached! They even included a free waterfowl marsh hat! I've been a fan of SITKA Gear for years but my experience with them this past week has made me a fan for life. If you're considering getting these waders for yourself, or some one you love, I can tell you without a doubt that they're worth every penny. I'd gladly buy them again but with their service warranty I won't ever need to.

(until they come out with women's waders of course)

Not exactly a waterfowl story but a wild success with my Sitka waders. I drew a rare moose tag in Alaska and spent 10 days on a very physical hunt. These waders got me through over 100 river crossings and countless miles of thick brush and swampy muddy drainages. From the thick tall brush to the temperature and weather changes to varying tasks like hiking or stand— the waders kept me safe warm and dry. Among the best Sitka products I own.

I have used these waders a full season. They are by far the most comfortable waders I have ever owned. I have used them in September for early Honkers, all the way to breaking ice in January. If you are in standing water you will want an insulation layer (gradient pants). I also developed a leak at the end of the season and sent them in to Sitka to get repaired. They paid shipping both ways, put a new set of boots on, and repaired 2 holes for free. They are expensive, but you get what you pay for. I am extremely happy with mine and a firm believer in Sitka and their customer service.

I finally bit the bullet. Got my self a pair of the XLT 2020 waders and I will never look back. The fact these are 100% serviceable is unbelievable. I wore these for early goose here in northern Minnesota with the core light weight bottoms underneath. The boots are super comfortable and my favorite feature is the zip. It’s really nice for putting them on and taking them off, not to mention when you need to do that thing that requires you to take other brand waders off. Also check out the waders bag new this year they do a good job of keeping the waders protected during travel and storage, they also help with taking the boots off with the built in boot holder. These are the last waders I’m ever going to own and I can’t wait to see how they hold up breaking ice late season here in MN. Thank you Sitka Gear!

From August building blinds in the Outer Banks of NC in 100+ degrees, to September and October in the wilds of AK hunting Brant and sea ducks dueling Bering Sea weather, Missouri and Arkansas Timber hunts in November, back to blizzards on Adak Island, AK in December shooting Eiders and Harlequin, January in Texas fighting clay and mud shooting Cranes and Geese, and then Slogging through mush in Feb and March chasing Snow geese from Mississippi to North Dakota. To say these waders are versatile is an understatement! Double the price on these waders and they would still be worth every penny! Over 200 days last season gunning waterfowl and guiding, no leaks, no discomfort, no complaints and comfort from the boots to the straps. Finally sending them in for the end of year service and receiving them back with a clean bill of health in 2 weeks during a PANDEMIC! Amazing customer service, backing an amazing product.

These waders are the absolute best piece of gear I have ever purchased. Yes, they are expensive but worth every penny. You truly do get what you pay for when it comes to quality waders. I was tired of baggy waders that didn't fit me well, weighed me down, and made me sweat. I am 5'10", 160Ibs, athletic build, and the medium short waders fit me like they were tailored to my body. I was shocked with how well they fit. They are extremely lightweight and breathable. I am able to walk longer and farther without feeling weighed down or getting tired as quick. This is huge for me considering I enjoy walk in hunts and scouting on foot. I also own Dead Bird Duck Calls and am very hard on my gear as we hunt most days during the season. I was eager to see how these waders would stand up against the abuse I would put them through and they far exceeded my expectations. Through buckbrush and everything else you can imagine, these waders help up very well. No leaks, rips, or tears. They are very durable. Lastly, these waders are so comfortable that I even wear them when dog training. Being as breathable and comfortable as these waders are, I am able to utilize them during the offseason to keep me dry while training. Excellent piece of equipment and I would 100% recommend these waders above any other brand. Buy a cheap pair and replace them every year, or go with Sitka and never have to buy another pair again. You do the math ;) There isn't one bad thing I could say about these waders. If you are a serious duck hunter, you need these.

I bought these waders in May, and have not used them hunting yet, but I have worn them scouting some public land the last few weeks in Maryland (we have had a bad heat wave recently with really high humidity) and I must say these were the real deal. Walked through brush, briars, and have put several miles on them already and they are so comfortable. I wore them when the heat index was around 100 degrees, and had the lightweight bottoms on under them and I was so comfortable. Can not wait to wear these when it gets colder. I have been a firm believer in Sitka for a few years now, and these have reaffirmed what I already knew. Sitka is the best!!
