Thigh-high thorn foe
Breathable waders are the most comfortable way to stay dry in the river. But nylon remains useful. Snowbee’s 210-denier nylon thigh waders are tough and may withstand brambles and grazing. They are likely to last longer than breathables. If you can put up with hot feet on days when the sun cracks the flags or when you face a long walk, they’re a reasonable option and perfectly habitable at other times. Thigh waders are always useful. Keep them in the car boot – they take up little space – and pull them on more quickly than lace-up boots and chest waders, for that hour or two grabbed after work. Choose either deep cleated or feltand-stud soles. The wellington bottoms are lightweight so offer little heel and toe protection. Straps and buckles attach the thin tops to a belt. They won't stay up without a belt. It's advisable to try them on for size first and to check the strap will reach your belt. Sizes: 5-15 cleated sole. 5-14 combi felt sole.
