    Re: Waders

    90% of the people on this site will disagree, but I bought Orvis silver labels last year, I have beaten' the ever lovin' poop out of them...Slid over logs, walked through briar patches, wrestled a bear in Montana(not really), spilled enviro 215( or whatever that stuff Danme was pushin') on them, and no leaks yet..They are comfortable, and STYLISH....I paid a little under $200.00...ONE PROBLEM...THEY ARE MADE BY THE ENEMY!!!

    Cabels are the best bang for your buck. I have had a pair that I abuse and they are up to the challenge.

    Simms G4 or G3's. If it is too much now save your pennies and get the good stuff. Made in America and worth the money.

    Re: Waders

    Cabela's house brand really are good waders. I would stay away from their bottom of the line offerings, but I have never had problems with their higher-end waders. You get a lot for the money anf they will also replace waders free if you have problems when the waders are still young.
