Hodgman Aesis H-Lock Wade Boot w/ Boa
Wade with confidence using the most advanced wading boot system available. The Hodgman H-Lock removable sole system allows you to swap soles for ideal traction control in any terrain or aquatic environment. The dual lock system holds the sole securely in place. Once engaged the sole will not come off unless both the front and rear locks are disengaged simultaneously.
The Aesis wade boot utilizes the BOA® M2 closure system for quick adjustment on demand. These boots are constructed with abrasion-resistant synthetic material in the uppers and durable sheet rubber in the high wear toe and heel areas.
No one wants to haul water around with them, so each step you take drains water from the bottom of the shoe and cleans the track system free of debris. This boot is saltwater ready with corrosion resistant hardware and the D-ring on the tongue ensures a secure location for gravel guard hooks to attach to. The Aesis wade boot utilizes double and triple-stitched panel construction for long term durability required by anglers who spend many days on the water each year.

Durability and breathability come together to form the Hodgman® H5 stocking foot wader. We know you’ll be scrambling up rocky, brush covered banks, or climbing in and out of drift boats, so we utilize 5-layer construction on the leg and seat for exceptional puncture resistance. We eliminated inside leg seams in high abrasion areas while still allowing articulation in the knees for stellar range of motion and mobility.
The wader upper incorporates 3-layer shell fabric for added breathability where you need it most, and features a Durable Water repellent (DWR) coating to shed water. Microfleece-lined handwarmer pockets utilize YKK® water-resistant zippers, and a large capacity YKK® zip chest pocket is perfect for storage.
This wader also accepts the Core INS removable zoned insulation system so you can transform your wader for cold or warm weather wading (sold separately). The liner zips and snaps in place to create an all-season wader.
Comfort is key for long days wade fishing, so we use anatomically correct left and right booties for a comfort fit. Each stocking foot bootie utilizes 5mm thick neoprene to keep your feet warmer in cold water. Additionally, our Comfort Fit Gravel Guard design eliminates a bulky and uncomfortable connection point at the top of the booties.
The ESCAPE WADERS are constructed with a 3-layer upper and a 4-layer lower material that offers mobility, breathability, and durability while wading or hiking for long-lasting performance. Whether you’re in the middle of a week-long float or just taking your first steps of a 5-mile hike to your secret spot, the ESCAPE WADERS offer everything you need at an exceptional value.

Why just have a belt to secure your waders and support your back?
