Redington Skagit River Wading Boot
Not a bad pair of wading boots
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Only used once thus far. Used this spring, 20-40 degree weather, 2 feet of snow and about 5 miles of walking. Comfortable. I usually wear a 9 1/2-10 shoe, ended up with a size 10. Fit well with 1-2 pairs of socks and 5mm neoprene booties. Size 9 would work if used for warm weather wading and neoprene booties only (I initially tried 9's but they were too small with layers). Grip was better than I expected but time will tell with different terrain (some use on slippery rocks). I would recommend these boots for their comfort and affordability. I'll update my review if grip or durability is an issue.
Do you ship to APO address?
Do you ship to APO address?
Yes they do. I'm pretty sure this qualifies for free shipping to.
Thanks Robin! Just wanted to make sure they do send to an APO address ;)
I didn't slip and fall
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
First boots with rubber soles vs felt. A little nervous at first but definitely grippy. Actually a lot better on the Ogden and Weber rivers in Utah over felt soles. Seem to grip the medium sized rocks great. They do run large. I wear a 10.5 street shoe and assumed with waders and socks I'd need an 11. I opted for a 10 after the first time wearing the 11's. Even with thick winter socks and waders the 10's are a much better fit.
Good for a beginner....
I just got into fly fishing and these are my first pair of wading boots. I don't have much to compare them to, but they do the job. They also run a little big. I wear a 10.5 and the 10s are still big on me, not giving full support. Overall for the price I am happy with them!
I ended up returning these boots after a couple of uses. I was using felt boots before, but i needed some new ones and decided to go with rubber to be prepared for the Invasive Species law i think will soon be in place. I have never used rubber soles before, but I will never use again...they are great on dry rocks, but mossy rocks is like walking on marbles. I exchanged for Korkers with interchangeable soles and love them.
I got these for my brother and he loves them. Says they are super comfortable. Be careful with sizing. He says they run big. He is generally a size 13 and the 13z are definitely roomy. He could have gotten away with the 12.
Customer Just Asked: "What is the difference...
Customer Just Asked: "What is the difference between rubber and felt soled wading boots?"
There a many differences between a felt and rubber wading boot. Felt is going to be grippier on the slick river bottoms that we often fish on. With the grippyness you will feel a lot more secure while wading and in faster water. The problem with felt is that it traps organisms which can then be transferred to other bodies of water. With invasive species such as the Zebra muscle running wild in our waters, this is extremely important. Rubber tends to be a bit less sticky, but the compounds now used are getting closer and closer to the grippyness of felt.
Please note, that felt wading boots are illegal in many states such as Idaho. Please check local fishing regulations!
I just got these boots and have only been able to use them once. so far they seem quite comfortable. I'm normally a 12 in street shoes and anything else so went with that. even with waders on they seem to be perhaps a tad loose. i probably could have gotten away with an 11 1/2 but it's not bad enough to warrant any sort of action.
i certainly didn't have any problems with sliding around while wearing this boot. they definitely gave me all the traction i needed for the Provo river out here in Utah.
if I have occasion to put some spikes on them and use those i'll update with how that goes.
