Same as Shane. I use the cycling long tights in summer and winter. never had a sore bum and I never get cold or hot. You can also get triathlon versions which have smaller padding as they are designed so you can run in them but still offer some protection.

maybe by next Winter


last Saturday I dropped off my waders for a repair ( one foot was getting wet - so a repair to the sock on that side ) while I was there I showed them what I wonted in a Neoprene kayak pants - it wont be a problem getting a soft band around the top of a set of waste waders to seal the pants like any other kayak pants ( Lovigs or Kokadat )

I told them I'll drop in to be measured and order a set after Xmas

my Neoprene waders are now around 6 year old and have had the odd repair they have always sealed pretty well if not any holes have been repairable and are a lot warmer than other pants I have used

Same Steve. I use stocking foot waders with a wading belt. They are a breathable waterproof material. I have inadvertently gone ass over in them and hardly got a drop inside. Plus, they are very light weight, particularly since they don't have a boot attached. I don't think they would weigh more than half a kilo.

Noticed Aldis were recently selling marino jocks, not cheap but considered trying them.

Cant be too toastie on these cold damp days.

I bought marino thermals from katmandu and merino track pants from aldi, merino is definitely warmer than synthetic, and i haven't had any rash/sore ass/balls and ive done some big trips in them, not so good when the sun comes up though lol

The new dry pants seem good, however my feet do get wet although this could be from perspiration, later next year i might buy a pair of waterproof socks, as im allergic to the cold as the day warms i have to peel of quite a lot of clothing, this over fills my box, maybe i should take a dry bag for them ;) i also have the lovig spray top this hardly gets used, mainly when it rains.

My biggest problem is cold hands in winter at night, i have fishing gloves but they are quite thin and don't keep my hands warm, are the a good pair anyone can recommend?

They would sure keep your hands warm but how are they with hooks, bait and fish?
