Only if water gets in the top. Really, what's the difference between waders and pants?Trying to use gear for dual purpose as I need dry pant and waders but do not have money for both. Trad. waders could kill if worn as dry pant on whitewater and dry-pants are often not rugged enough to walk through undebrush and will easily tear...
Not really. Drypants with socks instead of gaskets are functionally no different than sock foot waders, unless of course they are equipped to mate with a drytop. I dont think anyone would reccomend pants without socks for this use.Waders are sealed- pants are tightly closed. I don't think the wader use will be enjoyable.....a slow trickle of cold water is worse in my mind than just wading wet.

Except pants with sock can potentially fill up and drown you. bibs are much safer. Avoive pants with socks at all costs
I am looking for a dry pant that is super rugged as I will be using it for both boating and wade fishing, any advice would be huge, thanks!
