When selecting waders, users should try them on with their gear and consider different materials and colors.

Waders are a style of waterproof equipment designed to allow people to stand in relatively deep water without getting wet. There are two basic styles, hip waders and chest waders, and when worn with a warm insulating layer, they can be extremely useful in cold, wet places. For some jobs, this equipment may be required while on the job, to ensure employees are protected from the elements. There are numerous applications for waders, also available from an assortment of companies and manufacturers.

Some of the primary uses of waders are outdoor sports such as ocean fishing, fly fishing, and hunting, where people may be forced to wade through the water. They prevent the body from getting wet and potentially catching cold. Commercial fishermen also wear waders while out at sea and working the fish, as protective clothing. Some zookeepers also wear them, as do people who work in public works facilities such as water treatment plants. Also, there are waders specially designed for people who work with chemicals. Naturalists and biologists also often wear them while working.

Hip waders are boots that are supported at the top with straps that attach to a belt. They are made from a durable, waterproof material that is also flexible so that the wearer can move with a degree of freedom. However, if water enters through the top of a pair of waders, it can be extremely uncomfortable. For this reason, many people wear wellies, which look like a pair of suspenders with boots attached.

Waders are not usually designed to be worn next to the skin. Ideally, the wearer has an insulating layer provided by the pants between the waders and the skin. This layer also helps keep you warm, as waterproof materials like rubber can start to feel cold and sticky after an extended period of wear. Quilted jackets can also be worn to insulate the torso, and thermal underwear can be worn under anything in extremely cold places.

When selecting a pair of waders, users should try them on with the gear that would normally be worn with them. Consumers should be assured that it will allow them to move freely and that they will not feel uncomfortable. An assortment of colors and patterns is available to suit personal taste and uniform needs. Different materials will also feel different, so the wearer may want to try different types before making a final decision.
