Gear: Skwala RS Waders
I recently had the chance to use and fish in the new Skwala RS waders. These are a bomber-level wader option, built for the most intense of situations. I think Skwala knocked it out of the park with the RS waders, and you can find my full thoughts here.

Gear: Korkers River Ops BOA Wading Boots

You can read all about the new gear here.
