Hodgman Core INS wader liners

Hi everyone from the great south west UK.

Does anyone have any experience with these wader liners for the Aesis and H5 waders? They seem to beginning to be discounted and I was wondering whether to invest in a pair.

Thanks for any advice you may care to offer.

Happy New Year and Tight Lines in 2020.

My experience with Hodgeman is limited to 1 pair of neoprene waders years ago and they held up well. I looked at the liners on Amazon and they had 5 stars so... for the price might be worth a shot. Perhaps a set of suspenders would be nice. Hope this helps.

I've got a pair of Hodgman waders, and they're perfectly okay - I've only tried the liner on rather than battle testing it. It fits well and seems like a great idea - though I'd be curious as to what happens when you get the inevitable leak.

Thanks Darth. They are quite heavily discounted at one outlet here in the UK, which is why I was tempted to try them. Point taken re leaks!

By virtue of the very few customer reviews that Iíve found on the liners together with the limited replies here, perhaps they havenít sold very well, hence the discounting? I think the Aesis sonic waders are great so having a purpose made liner to go inside for those cold days on the river would be very welcome. Might just have to take the plunge, metaphorically! :-)

I have the zippered Aesis waders with the Core liner. I use these waders in the winter. The liner snaps in and is comfortably warm. Waders are still easy to put on and take off with the liner installed. They do add weight to an already heavy set of waders but once you have them on, it is not so noticeable.

I think hodgman has a great idea with this liner system and their Aesis waders have proven to be durable and well built.

The legs on those pants look like they would slide on and off very easily and appear to be some serious insulation.

At least theyíll keep the old tackle warm this spring!
