Many fishermen wonder what type of fishing waders they should buy; neoprene or breathable? Well, the truth is this all depends on the type of fishing you do most. Do you mainly fish for steelhead in the fall of the year or are you more of a late spring and early summer drift fisherman? This all matter because it makes a difference in whether you need neoprene or breathable fishing waders. As a general "rule of thumb" neoprene waders keep you much warmer, so if you tend to fish in cold weather/water alot, neoprene waders are the way to go. On the other hand, breathable waders are great beacuse you can layer clothing underneath the waders to keep you warm in cold water/weather scenarios. Breathable waders are what we at JRWfishing prefer, because they are so nice in "normal" weather/water situations, but at the end of the day the choice comes down to personal prefernece and the fishing scenarios you most often find yourself in. Just remember, neoprene waders are warmer and breathable fishing waders are generally more comfortable.
