Allen Black River Boot-Foot Hip Waders

This is a pair of waders for the traditionalist. Whilst we don’t see many pairs of waders in this design any longer, the simplicity of hip waders can have advantages, especially if you are an experienced fisherman.

First and foremost, these are the lightest waders we tested. If you are serious about your fly fishing, we’re going to bet that you are already carrying an awful lot of gear with you out on the river, and that you don’t need a pair of waders that will weigh you down further. With the design of these waders, this is not a problem.

PROS
  • The materials used in this pair of waders for fly fishing, whilst somewhat basic in comparison to some other items on the market, are extremely rugged. The two ply construction of the top part of the waders ensures that even if small holes develop, they will stay waterproof for longer.
  • The boots on these waders are actually the best we tested. If your fishing spots are particularly rocky, then this pair of waders could be a good option, because the boots offer a good level of ankle protection and feel secure even on slippery river banks.
  • If you are particularly big, this style of waders is great. It can be difficult to find boot-footed waders which fit both in the shoe and around the waist, and obviously with this design you need not worry about that.
CONS
  • None, for the price. Some may want a few more pockets, but overall this is a good minimal solution that really comes into its own on hot days.
