    Re: Waders

    My two cents,

    scrimp and save and buy American! you cant go wrong with the high end offerings from Simms, or Dan Bailey. Simms G-3's are a great choice they ware like Iron. Mine are three seasons old and are still going strong, and I dont baby them. I would rather cheap out on rods & reels than waders.

    Re: Waders

    I used to work for Simms. The freestones are made with shittier epoxy than cabelas. Calbelas midrange are the way to go for that price range. The freestones are not even made in house. Another brand to look at is patagonia. They made a good pair of waders that are backed up by great customer service over there. My buddy rips his pair from time to time and they are back within 2 weeks fixed for almost no money. I have a pair of g3 waders that I really like. the design is really good for bush wacking and not too heavy like the g4s.

    Wow thanks, I really like those redington waders. Now whats your guys's opinion on wading shoes? Could I just use an old pair of sneakers for now intill I get a pair?

    Re: Waders

    Bean make nice waders and have the warranty. People complained about the original Helix waders and their shoulder strap configuration when it was time to take a leak with layers on & it doesn't look like they have changed it up much.

    I have had bad luck with Orvis waders, but it's been 3 years since I have worn a pair and they have an entire new line 2 times over, but I am not willing to take the gamble. The new silver seams look interesting, I have the Redington sonic seams (they purchased the technology from Orvis) and have had zero problems with them.

    You have a ton of options in your price range, for what it's worth, I would purchase the Simms Headwaters on sale for $209 at CLEARANCE & SPECIALS - Product Catalog if they have your size. They are Gore-Tex as well.

    Another waders to check out is on Sierra. Simms has a few artic muck bootfoot waders on clearance for $160 if you use an online coupon code. Your feet will never get cold if you winter fish. Sizes are limited. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/s~muckboot/ These waders use their quadralam, which has worked well for me on my Simms Exstream winter waders (no longer made). Buy the felt if you can, and put a set of Simms Hard-bite studs for felt in them. The lug soles will require you buy a set of korker strap-ons for winter fishing.

    In terms of boots, you are asking to take a swim if you wade in sneakers, especially when the water temps cool. I have a narrow foot making me a Korkers fan, love the interchangeable soles. I alternate between the studded felt and carbide changeable stud soles. Even though Korkers claim to be size right for your street show, you still need to go up one size.

    Re: Waders

    Korkers all the way awesome traction on slippery rocks. The streamborn can be picked up for $99 I believe and if you want top of the line they are I think $225 complete with a couple pairs of replacement soles ..

    Re: Waders

    i agree with macfly...i have the sonics with the zipper..i have pounded them really hard now for 2 seasons..no issues..the way they are cut also makes them more like a pant fit than any others ive had before..that zipper front is so convenient i dont think i could ever buy another pair of waders without it..
