    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.

    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.

    Heads up on new wader boots. Old boots size 11 fit great, new boot had to step into size 12. Zach from Sitka stepped up and helped me change color and boot. Thanks guys at Sitka

    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!!
