Re: patagonia products
I put several seasons in a pair of Patagonia SST waders. I retired them with one hole in a non-critical area. Actually they are still being used by someone who does not fish a lot. I now have a pair of Watermaster II waders that have well over 100 fishing days in them. So far no failures. The Patagonia rep wants me in the current model, but it is hard to give up something that works so well.
I sent back one pair of Patagonia boots back a few years back. I only put about 15 days in them. Patagonia replaced the boots with the current model without asking me a lot of questions.
