Hodgman Guidelight Waders???

Has anyone used them or have heard much about them?? Im interested in some durable waders that I can use in winter and early spring... I heared you can layer up in these to stay warm.. Curious there is not much product reviews about these.. Any info would help.. And any suggestions on waders.

Have not heard of these but I got some breathable waders last year. I have been wearing the neoprene (SP) for years! The breathable ones are Super! Layer up when it is cold & as the water warms you can wear less cloths. I wish I had known about the breathable waders long ago. They are Tony The Tiger..... "GREAT!"

dont buy hodgman's

they were bought out and everyone is still clearing out old inventory.

I went 4 pairs that leaked and ended up going with another brand

Breathable waders are great...but say no to the Hodgmans

Where would be the best place to find these breathable waders? Any particular namebrand you can recommend?

Hodgeman is Sterns.. same makers as many lifevest ... I tried a pair of Hodgeman guidelite breathable Monday while wading the end of Sportsman road..... most of the day they held up fine.. but mid afternoon..... developed a major leak........ right over the top damn the mud in the cut there is a bit deep!!


Ive seen other 100$ class waders on other sited like basspro and others... most reviews are mixed and heavy salt use seems to have others lasting 2 years even after fresh water washings each trip. Bring on the solutions with the negatives to help us out....

I bought my last pair at Bass Pro. they are heavier duty compared to Hodgmans and had reinforced knees, which is good for duck hunting

Keep your reciept and the box, if they leak within a year return them with no hassel......the one thing that Bass Pro has going for them. Good customer Service...and I'm hard to please

I'm on my second pair of Hodgman's neoprene. Threw away my first pair because they leaked so badly, and I was tired of making repairs. Second set just as bad. I have about 10 lbs of sealant on my second pair and the leaks are now an annoyance, so only a couple areas of my jeans are wet after fishing. Wouldn't you know it, one leak is right wear it looks like an embarrassment!!! But have already decided, never Hodgman's again.
