Chota Tundra Hippies Adjustable Hip Waders were selected as a "Gear of the Year" by Fish Alaska Magazine!
Contributing Editor of Fish Alaska Troy Buzalsky shared, “While gearing up for an 11-day float trip in remote Alaska chasing rainbows, Dolly Varden, and coho, I brought a pair of Chota Tundra Hippies along for some serious testing. The Tundra Hippies are a lightweight hip wader made with a neoprene stocking foot to accept standard wading boots or shoes. I wore the Hippies from dawn-until-dusk, crawling in and out of the raft, while fishing ankle to mid-thigh water, dragging the raft through shallows and around log jams, setting up and taking down camp, and trekking the tundra while viewing caribou, moose, and bear. The Hippies are 100% comfortable, 100% waterproof, 100% practical, and they are very compact, making them ideal for remote adventures.”
