You can't halt progress I guess but sooner or later they may price me out. I do have limits on how much I want to spend on things and I can get a lifetime big game reel for the price of their new G4's...
I concur Mike,

While I like to think I'm doing the best I can for my gear, once you reach a certain threshold I will not go there. For me, 450.00 is about as high as I could possibly dream that a pair of waders should ever cost. At that price I better see ten years unless I rip them up from misuse. At that price I don't want to hear about a leaky seam or bootie. If I have a leak at a seam of foot I will have to question the wisdom of spending half of a thousand dollars on waders.
