RedHead® Bone-Dry Hobbs Creek® Hip Waders - Lug Sole
The boots leaked as soon as I got into water that was deeper than the insulated area, the canvas just would let the water seep through and the canvas tore very easily.

Hip Waders and mud
I bought these to replace a set of Lacrosse that had dry rotted in garage on the rack. I needed them quick for a planned canoe and hog hunt in Georgia...and did not want to pay another $150+ for something I use twice a year to only rot again hanging on the wall.
These were on sale and were insulated in foot area for 200gr of Thinsulate....so figured why not.
I wore them for four days in temps from 60*F down to below freezing while slogging through swamps with water to my thigh and mud that would swallow you in some areas even higher. I also wore in grass and reeds that were 8-10feet high growing on a semi-stable island of pluff mud held together by various grasses but teeming with hogs. The boots never leaked...tore or failed me....and the straps held onto my belt even when fully submerged in mud and I had to force my foot and boot free. They would slide on my feet but never came off and the straps and buckles held up to the abuse. That in of itself has sold me on their build quality. They went through 2 years of abuse in just 4 days hog hunting in the lowlands of south Georgia. Great boot especially for the price.

Very good Boots
These are some of the best Hip Waders I have ever owned. I like the way they are constructed.
I would recommend them to anyone that needs a good set of Hippers

I believe that the waders I bought were excellent they were comfortable and kept me dry and warm the felt soles are the only way to go no slip on rocks.
