Cormoran offers in the very favorable range a really useful waders. I bought this waders just in time for the trout season and have been fishing with it regularly since then. In this test you can read how good I found them and how they performed in practice.
In the product box there is first of all a transport bag made of nylon, in which again the waders, an extra bag for bait boxes etc. and a waderbelt are. This is already a very pleasant accessory, especially since the design of the bag was taken into consideration. The bag has a net material in some places, so that water can come out of the bag.
The waders with the integrated boots look relatively well made and the nylon material feels stable. Only the wader smells strongly of plastic, but this will disappear after a while. So the first impression is generally positive.
In the practical test
I have now fished the wader for exactly one season and have been with it mainly in creeks and rivers. The target fish were mostly trout and chub with the spinning rod, but it was also used for pike on the lake and with the belly boat.
One thing was quickly clear, if you buy this budget waders, you should dress for the appropriate water temperatures, because it is not breathable, you sweat very quickly in it. Once I had taken this into consideration, the waders actually worked relatively well. But with high outside temperatures and low water temperatures it was often a little bit difficult especially during longer walks outside the water.
When wading I often had situations where I thought “that’s it – now there’s a hole in the pants” but the pants have been surprisingly tight. So I scraped past many stones or even hit the boots, which were a little too tight for me, against many sharp stones while wading.
The right size
The shoes of the wading pants are a little smaller, if you want to wear thick socks underneath in spring, you should rather order 1-2 shoe sizes above your normal size.
A surprisingly good and robust wader for little money. The high-quality material, as well as the good equipment surprised me positively. If the waders were still breathable, they would be absolutely unbeatable, but unfortunately this is not available for the money. Recommended for beginners in waders in spring and autumn. But for the high summer and winter it should be a different one.
