Default Re: need help with waders!

I agree...RENT. A good pair of breathables and boots you will be looking at around $300. sad to say, but Breathable HIPPERS and WAIST HIGH are really not that much of a saving over chest high. I have the breathable hippers, of course there is a boot attached, but isn't that the appeal to hippers, put on and go? They are Orvis and they cost $149. where as the Chest wader in this line is $179.

EXAMPLE: in the Cabela's catalog, there is HODGMAN. Stocking foot on all here.
Hippers - $80. , Waist High - $100. and Chest $110. See where I am going?

Plus all the chest high I have ever seen have a roll down/fold down feature that allowes you to turn them in to waist highs real easy, but on those cold wet, rainy days....nothing beats chest highs!
