MikeG, you work at a great store. Although living near Houston I only get to their nearest (Buda) retail store when I'm going to the Guadalupe, I've bought a ton of stuff from them online (even though I hate
paying both shipping & tax for online purchases
). As it happens, the Gore-Tex "equivalent" I have is
the Cabela Dry-Plus, which I think a lot of. Packs up nicely for vest storage, good pocket arrangement, adjustable neoprene cuffs keep your arms dry when going down for a trout, breathes well in the warmer conditions I tend to fish in, and being the shorter "wade" model works well for me in the wading situations I'm normally in.
