I have a pair of Redington waders and I mostly have had no problems with them. I've had them for almost 2 years and I have been getting damp while wearing them the last 3 or 4 times I've used them. They get used in the salt and on western Washington rivers for steelhead . They have had a few blackberry vines grab them on the way to the river and I have only rinsed them once after a salt trip. How do youall clean your waders and do you reapply a water repellent for the exterior. Is it worth the time and effort to clean and reapply water repellent. Also what brand of repellent would you recommend.
