hip boots
Posted by Kirk on May 01 2006
If I were to go on a tundra caribou hunt again, I'd debate weather to have hip boots or chest waders.   I think I'd lean towards the waders.   I had ankle fit rubber hip boots with a raincoat.  I don't care how careful you are, you're pants are going to get wet when it rains.  When I was flying out I ran into a couple of big shots from Cabela's who were flying out, they were field testing some waist fitting pants that were a combination between hip boots and waders.  You wore them just like pants.   I don't know how they worked, I haven't looked for them in their catalog but they sure looked slick to me.
