My first pair of waders were Hodgmans. It’s highly likely that yours were, too. The brand has been stalwart for decades, available in everything from local mom-and-pop tackle shops to chain stores across the country. One of the perks of Hodgman was that the price was always right for their wares, and that’s not going to change. They’ll still be producing reliable, affordable waders going forward, but the brand got a surprising facelift, and will now be offering gear comparable to what Simms and Orvis is producing. Check out the video and tell me what you think about the new look and tech behind Hodgman.
