A while ago I was watching a photography video on YouTube. The photographer had a small fold up mat that he could pull out of his camera bag and unfold to kneel on to keep his knees dry. I can't find the video now. Do any of you own any such item? If so, where did you get it.

Secondly, we are going to the Oregon Coast in a few weeks. I would like to buy some sort of waterproof boots that I can wear to wade out into the ocean a little ways. Do any of you have some you can recommend? I'm thinking that I would like the rubber type....kind of like rain boots that would be easy to slip on and off. But, I will take any suggestions.

The water can get deep pretty quickly - AND - the waves will cause the water level to go up and down. Ideally hip waders would work, but they will be bulky to carry around....and I don't know how expensive they will be. Also, you have to be on-guard at all times for a rogue wave, especially when carrying your gear.

I used knee high waterproof Sorels in Iceland....and managed to fill them up with icy sea water, as Glenn can attest! LOL!

Terri, I just tried both Muck and Bog brand boots, wanted them for hiking in wet woods. Went with the Bog brand, found them very comfortable to walk in. The Mucks hurt my feet, but everyone’s feet are different. My daughter has Bogs, she likes them a lot. If you visit Bogs website, they’ll send you a 10% off coupon. I tried the Mucks locally in a farm/sports store named North 40, maybe there is one near you. Had to order the Bogs online, Zappos has them.

There are lots of "best of lists", here's is another, The Best Rain Boots for Men and Women for 2019

Years ago we made our first trip to Alaska and we wanted to take waterproof boots with us. Our Alaska friends told us to wait, and if needed, buy 'em up there as they know best what works. In the end, we never needed "Ketchikan sneakers" and saved ourselves a lot of money.
That's a good idea, too!! Buy them there if I need them.

Thank you, Rick. We have a big farm supply store here. I'll check it out.

I bet that was cold!! I do think hip waders would be too bulky to take. Perhaps there is no avoiding getting wet, but it would be good to try!!
