Sometimes you need a hip wader, sometimes you need a knee-high wading sock and at other times you need something in between, and that’s exactly what you get with the all-in-one Chota Hippies. These convertible wading socks feature a three-millimeter neoprene stocking foot attached to a three-ply breathable laminate upper with an adjustable drawstring at the top for a secure fit at any height. The Hippies also have a built-in cinch strap just below the knee to help keep the socks in place and help prevent flooding just in case you go in a little too deep.
Caddis Northern Guide Front Zipper Stockingfoot Waders
The Northern Guide Wader by Caddis features a reinforced knee and seat, two large zippered front pockets and a long relief zipper, which extends from the top of the chest down to the crotch.
