Dave, worried about crease marks from string/rope, then here is your fix:

1) go to store, woman's intimate department

2) find the pantyhose/leggings aisle

3) spend the money and buy the best 'silk' you can find

4) take them home and put crotch over clothing pole in closet

5) invert waders upside down after stuffing with packing material

6) tie waders around ankles with the legs/feet of the pantyhose, use a flat reef knot as to not crease the waders.

I did armor all old boots, hang on 1 hanger, the oldest pair is armor all lay flat not fold,, can order a hip waders hanger from Cabela's for $7.99 plus $5 shipping was quoted on phone, might do that an 2 hangers I have, just sone old long shoe strings should be fine for off-season summer storage, but in season, might be good to have 2 boot hangers, not sure if should spend more money or not

Can you try building a boot hanger out of a scrap piece of plywood and 2x4. Many ideas on google.

First you ask for advise..then you say stupid posts.. you did not even bother checking the manufacturer for their wader care. So which one is stupid? You buy a pair of cheap waders and worry about creases..c'mon. you get what you pay for..

So I hung boots the new ones like other pr, by belt strap on piece wire to nail on basement floor joists, it say boots after dry to hang upside down but brand new unused an dry an hung but foot boot down, is there a difference in storage ? Put newspaper wad up a little in boot to puff it out so no creases, u think hang from belt straps for months the weight of boot pull on belt straps an stitching on belt straps from hanging could weaken the stiching hold the belt straps to boots ?

I leave em in the truck cause I use them all the time.
I got about 8 pairs and they are all good for the last 12 years or so.They take a long time to dry when they get wet,and about half are oversized for the cold weather in Nov and dec.Thats why I have 8 pairs.
Heavy rubber with steel toes.They are cold when wearing on the bike all day in november-the extra big ones allow for insoles and extra socks.

I always guessed they wanted them upside down because of the boot weight. Hanging them by the straps stretches the rubber out.

Thanks tell me that, right now I take the 2 pairs down, I didn't know that , it does ruin boot or hard rubber an shorten life ? Cheapest boot hangers I could find were $13 shipped , someone on this topic told me to hang from boot straps , so it could stretch rubber an ruin them ?

Hanging them by the belt straps will not stretch out the BOOT RUBBER. It may stretch the boot strap which isn't going to be a problem. In fact most belt straps aren't even rubber.

I give up on trying to help.
