Bison 4mm Neoprene Chest Waders with Free Mobile Phone Dry Bag & Studs

Currently these high quality neoprene chest waders have 43% off with this link. They boost a 4mm neoprene which is plenty thick enough to keep you warm in the UK waterways and seas. Although I tend not to feel the cold too much as I surf in a 3/2 wet suit in the winter.

Cleated rubber soles provide maximum grip which is important as slipping on rocks or in the water can be very dangerous. The reinforced knees will help if you do trip or spend a lot of time knelt gathering bait.

Comfortable Velcro shoulder straps hold the waders in place but are a little on the long side for the average person. More Velcro can be added or you can cross the straps behind your neck. Another idea would be too reduce the length by folding the strap and stitching it. There is also a chest pocket to carry your fishing items in.

Available in sizes 7,8,9,10,11,12 and 13. However they come up small so buying a pair a couple of sizes to large should be considered.
