“These are probably going to be my No. 1 Christmas present for the waterfowler again this year,” Lindsey Simmons-Roberts at Simmons’ Sporting Goods in Bastrop said. “They’re definitely my No. 1-selling wader.”

The key is they’re not heavy and bulkly like neoprene, but they keep you toasty warm on those chilly mornings in the blind.

“You get all of the warmth, without the bulk and weight.”
