Eli Hauschild's Bio

I was born and raised in Wyoming on the edge of the Big Horn Mountains. I grew up mountain biking, fly fishing, backpacking, hiking, and snowshoeing in Wyoming and Montana. After joining the Navy at 18 years of age, I had a chance to live in San Diego and Seattle, as well as visiting a few foreign countries. After working a couple years outside of D.C., I'm now living and working in Minnesota.

Whether I am flyfishing, going on a day hike, backpacking, canoeing, or snowshoeing, I pack everything I need dry in this. I believe it works better than a pack cover in most circumstances, especially flyfishing because I can't find a pack cover that would do a better job than this bag. I simply stuff anything I need to keep dry inside. For backpacking I can fit all my cloths and sleeping bag inside, and not have to worry about them getting wet if it starts raining, or I happen to fall into the river.

It is also very durable and well stitched and seamed. I would highly recommend this. It has lasted several years with no signs of wear and tear.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm really happy with this purchase. I've previously owned and used neoprene waders which don't breath and tend to be a little more difficult to walk in. I picked up a pair of these, and I absolutely love them. They are lightweight, breathable, and easy to walk in. The hand warmers have come in handy for cooler evenings when you've had your hands in and out of the water, unhooking a brown, brook, or rainbow trout. The pocket has come in handy too. I used to use a fly vest, but found using the osprey talon 22 works a lot better for me. With the pocket on these waders, I can fit 2 fly boxes and my camera for easy access. They wades are pretty durable too. Here in minnesota, I've had to walk through a lot of thick grass and brush. Several times I've walked through some thorns, and yesterday I stumbled into a jagged stick. I was certain i would have put a hole in them, but they are still watertight. I'm still extra careful, as I know a thinner breathable fabric is going to be a lot easier to puncture.

I am 5'11" 160lbs, and went with the large. I tried on the medium, which were way too short and too tight. For anyone 6'1" or taller, you will want to go with an XXL.

This is a great deal though, great company, and a well made wader. I highly recommend these.
