Equipment initially designed for professionals, this PPE is now available to everyone. It offers safety and comfort during forays into the water. Let's get to know this outfit better with this article.

What are waders?

In shape, it is close to that of a overalls, but it is considered a waterproof suit. It covers the body from the feet to the chest, is held by straps and is extended in most cases with integrated boots.

These integrated boots are often waders, boots that reach up to the thighs, but this is not the case for all combinations. Indeed, some brands market the garment with only the integrated slippers, others offer a pack where you can purchase the appropriate shoes or boots in addition. Because yes, the outfit can actually be accompanied by high shoes which offer more practicality and comfort, especially for long-term work.

The role of waders in detail - Fishing, hunting, etc.

The waders are part of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and it has several roles. Already, it acts to protect the body of its wearer from water. During incursions into a lake or the sea or in a submerged place (to a certain point), the suit will prevent the skin from coming into contact with water. It will thus offer the comfort necessary for work (or for the ordinary wearer) to carry out their activity at ease.

As the water is generally at a lower body temperature, the suit also works to preserve this temperature. Please note, however, that there are two types of waders. The first is designed with neoprene and protects the wearer from the cold. Multiple layers can be added to the design, to the suit for working in really low temperatures. However, this design is not ideal for summer days or in a hot environment since the temperature would quickly become unbearable. Also, we find waders more flexible and breathable which protect from water, but remain comfortable even when temperatures rise.

Standards governing the design of waders

The waders are part of category S5 of PPE. This means in particular that not all wetsuits, boots and shoes are considered waders. The equipment we put on must be standardized before getting the green light for marketing as waders. The EN ISO 20345 standard is the basic standard for this outfit. Here are the main standards that regulate design:

As mentioned above, the suit must be water resistant, but also isothermal, either to protect from the cold or to be breathable during extreme heat. It must also have one or more pockets on the top, the interior of which must be double layered.

As PPE, waders must protect against accidents. This applies to the wetsuit, but also to a pair of boots or shoes which must also follow strict standards.

First, it must have an anti-perforation sole to prevent the feet from suffering serious accidents. Then, the equipment must also be equipped with a safety toe cap to protect the feet from any falling objects. Finally, as the shoe or boot must also penetrate water, it is imperative that both resist water and hydrocarbons.
