Is it posible to have a bit of condensation build up in my waders while out fishing there brand new only used them 3 times for a bout 6 hours each and i took them off and my socks were wet same with my pants, any ideas i tryed looking for leacks but couldnt find anything

First off...are these waders breathables or are they just nylon? If they are nylon, condensation will undoubtedly occure any time you sweat. Nylon waders do not breathe, much like neos, so any perspiration will stop at the wader and condense on the inside. If you have breathables, there should be no condensation because breathables allow the moisture to pass through tiny pores in the fabric. The only thing you can do to stop from getting wet from the condensation is invest in some quality polyester or poly propelyne long johns, socks, shirt and jacket. These will wick the moisture away from your body. Yes it may condense still but you will not get very wet.

Thank you Dyer Straits i was worried that i might have to fork out more money for waders when i didnt want to they are not breathables so that make sense now thank you much appreciated

no prob Freak, heed that advice that i gave you, buying some quality layers of clothing (no blue jeans or cotton which absorb the moisture). It will make your day out on the flow much more comfortable as well as warmer (less moisture means less heat loss)
