Others have it also. Pretty sure the Cabela's Instinct style does.
Where do you think banded got the idea .
Are the boots thinner or weaker than typical? The boots are the one thing on all my waders that never leaked, always seemed like the toughest part of the things.
Seem fine/average/normal to me?
Anyone who hunts timber for more than a few years can relate to the 0430 "leaky wader that wasn't leaking earlier". Those canvas coverings help keep that down. You walk in through the woods, and punch a hole in your waders, right where the boot and material meet. God, I hate that.
Academy's hybrids I have have the same canvas coverings on them as well.
Interesting, I guess I've just been lucky as I've never had a leak at the boot seam. Mine have all been in the crotch or from a random puncture.
Literally every single pair of waders I've ever owned from Cabelas has developed a leak at the Crotch.
Mine happen most typically when I'm walking in, and having to step over submerged logs. Invariably, they will have a little knob from an old stick that I can't see, and it snags somewhere around the boot, and punches through when it catches in a fold (usually right above the boot to right below the knee). I have 3 sets of damn fine waders right now that need repairs in roughly the same place. Only ones that need repair elsewhere are the Drakes I bought, and they need repair in 3 places, one in each inner leg seam, and one in the crotch.
I've had Lacross waders almost exclusively and they last a while but eventually that's where I'd get a leak 98% of the time. Usually just a slow seeping but leaking nonetheless.
Yeah I can see that happening, like I said I guess I've just been lucky because I walk through the same kind of stuff all the time. I've poked holes, they've just been higher up on the waders.
