Re: Orvis Waders
I always buy chest highs. Like said before, they are great for inclement weather or cold. I do some float tubing. And I can always manage to turn a set of chest highs into waist highs if need be, tucking them in and adjusting wading belt. If you are sure you are just going to be a fair weather, small stream fisherman, waist highs are fine.
To keep on topic, I have never owned a pair of Orvis waders. I have purchased a lot of other orvis stuff and they have never let me down. They once sent me a replacement part on a ten year old reel for free. That is service.
