    I didn't know banded existed until the last day of the season last year. I was invited to hunt a club up in Kingstree and the 10 guys who were there all had those waders. All of them leaked.

    I'm on my third pair and they have all leaked. I have a two year old white river jacket that the zipper broke on. Their customer service sucks also. I have been emailing them about stuff and all you get is generic response so I called and I might as well have been speaking to a brick wall. I will be stopping to speak with them in person on my way through Memphis next week.

    Try fort thompson smith brand. Heard good things about them and they're about a 100 bucks cheaper. Haven't had any trouble with my banded's. I do hang them by the boot after every hunt, going on 2 years with the same pair.

    Ask any one that knows me, I am hard on equipment. I bought a pair of Frogtog Refuge waders last and love them. Walking trough briars, breaking ice, etc, they have held up well and are dang comfortable.

    Get you a pair of Dan's bibs briar bibs to wear over the top of them. They don't hold water and get heavy and will really protect your waders.

    I've had a pair of lacrosse waders for about 4-5 years with no problem except that I got them too insulated and one of the buckles on the shoulder strap kind of broke but still works. Until this year I haven't had a boat so I've had to walk through thick woods and some pretty nasty swamps for the vast majority of my hunts. I don't know the model name but they have some sort of rubberish stuff on the knees, crotch, boot seam, and rear end.

    i actually bought a pair of dans briar chaps to do exactly this, but the leak i have now is just from my waders being shitty, not a puncture from briars, etc

    I've seen on Instagram that a few people have been wearing Dan's brand waders. I think they're brand new, so time will tell if they hold up as well as the rest of their stuff.

    Another vote for Rogers/frogg togg waders. Get the ones with the zip in insulation, its super nice to have the option.

    I actually looked at them and the description said "waterproof from the waist down, which made me a little nervous.

    Tall folks seem to have the most problems with inseam leaks because the legs aren't made long enough.

    The OP definitely shouldn’t have that problem.
