Don’t forget the Filson’s Men’s Guide waders ($450), which are not only waterproof and breathable—amazing, given the five layers of fabric in them—but also saltwater resistant, and come with neoprene booties for a watertight seal and heat retention. Bridle leather trim, brass snaps and a wool-lined hand-warmer pocket define them as unmistakably Filson.
