“Dry” is just one standard any wader has to meet. Frankly, that’s a pretty low bar. Today, waders are measured not only by how effective they are in keeping moisture out but also how they fit, their weight, warmth, freedom of movement and features. Caddis Wading Systems has enjoyed enormous growth over the past 16 years because they deliver the best of all worlds. Real innovation, unmatched depth and breadth of products, exceptional fit for all sizes, broad selection, comfort, dryness and value that is unmatched.

Caddis Wading Systems has found a home in some of the most remote, inhospitable and weather-beaten areas on the planet. One day it’s a chilling, raininfested storm that’s relentless and unforgiving, the next, bluebird skies, warm temperatures and stifling humidity. Your father’s chest waders would have been punishing but Caddis is worn by people that make their living in this environment. Caddis is trusted gear that holds up to nature’s worst and delivers the kind of comfort you need.

With so many different designs to choose from, in fact more variety than you’ll find anywhere, there’s a Caddis wader that’s tailored precisely to your application. Whether you’re in a marshy duck blind, wading an Alaskan river or in the field on the job, Caddis Wading Systems has developed the appropriate wader and boot for whatever you do

Distributors and retailers will appreciate Caddis Wading System’s remarkable fill rate. In most cases, Caddis delivers what you need, when you need it

Great Waders!

I purchased these waders in September. I have fished about six times in them and they have been dry (and warm) every time.

I’m 6’1″ and weigh 230 lbs. I ordered the Large size based on Caddis’ fitting chart on their home page (using my shoe size). The fit is a little tighter than my old waders, but still comfortable. The X-large size would have just been too big.

The waders come with a wading belt, a repair kit, and a mesh storage bag, though I don’t use the bag…I hang my waders up in the closet after they’re dry.

There is also a nice front pocket where I can slide my reading glasses in and out of, as needed.

Great first use… More to come!

So far met all my expectations, have only used/worn them once float tubing all day, which meant I did not use my wading boots. I wore wool sucks underneath and had plenty of room while not feeling uncomfortable with flippers on, the top you can cinch up well so no water gets in while your posture gets lazy while floating. I am 6′ 1″ 185 pounds and the large fits perfectly. Will edit my review once I do some serious wading this winter.

These waders are the cat’s meow!

These waders are the cat’s meow! I’m 5’5″, 220#. I bought the Large, Short, Stout, and the sizing is perfect. I also bought a “used, like new” from amazon.com for $82, and when they came in, they were new, package never seemed to have been open. The only problem, was I had to buy new wading boots, one size larger than my normal 9 shoe. These have thicker neoprene stockings than my old waders. I highly recommend these waders.

Personalized Sizing Help

I have only ever bought Caddis waders! My 1st pair were a size large woman’s teal. Then I decided that I wanted more room for jackets so I bought an XL. They were huge on me everywhere! I contacted Caddis and they helped me go over sizing. They understood my need for more jacket room but not bigger everywhere else. I now have a med stout. It means I have a med body and a bigger top starting at the waist. Perfect fit ! A. D.

I will be a Caddis customer for life

I’ve been a long time user of the Caddis breathable waders for Salmon and Steelhead river fishing out here in the northwest. I’ve taking quite a few good falls on gravel banks, rocks, trees, sliding down mud banks, forging paths in thick brushes and branches, and these waders have not ripped or leaked after 10 years of hard use. I took a chance on them over 10 years ago for my first waders and I’m still using the same ones to this day. I’ve had a really great experience with their customer service and Office Manager Amber who went the extra mile for me to get a specialty part which made my day. From my overall experience I will be a Caddis customer for life. Great product, prices, durability and customer service has won me over. Thanks, Larry the Fisherman! –

They are lightweight and so very comfortable.

I bought these waders with one eye open and one eye shut because I thought that at such a low price surely they couldn’t be all that good. Boy was I wrong. I have worn everything from rubber to neoprene and bought these for a lightweight backup. Well as it turns out these are the only ones I have worn since my purchase. They are light weight and so very comfortable. I have been fly fishing for years and have never felt as comfortable as I do now because of these waders. I have experienced very cold and very warm temps and have been very comfortable. I will be getting a second pair of these for backup soon. They are great.. Thanks !! T. Nelson –

Waterfowl Waders go the extra step to fully tape and seal all seams for leak prevention. On wader models with neoprene stocking feet, the seams of the feet are taped and sealed on both the inside and the outside for maximum performance. Waterfowl waders are sized to fit right without bunching up or constricting during most common movements. In short, because we understand the wading environment better than any other manufacturer, Waterfowl is able to offer products that deliver improved performance and function.
