I went to Cabelas and bought a pair of the Bog Buster hip waders. After they shipped them to my house ( not in store) I tried them on and they seem to be pretty well fitting given that I will be wearing heavy wool socks. The soles did seem soft and flimsey. I really like the straps that keep the shoe part on your feet when in deep muck. The bad side is that they are non-insulated. Tonight I ordered a pair of hip waders from Macks Prarie Wings made by Frog Togs and they came with good reviews on that web site. The latter pair are 600 grm insulated and less money. I can return either pair when I have both at home to do a side by side in fit. So here is my question...if any of you out there ( where I will get my best review ) have used either of these can you give me a reason to keep one over the other? I know the insulation is a plus so I am leaning towards the Frog Togs. Just looking for the best lightweight hip wader! Bob.
