Waders are something YOU SHOULD NOT SKIMP ON!

Orvis & Simms are the only ones I have ever had. They are both excellent waders. Either the Orvis Pro Guides or Simms High end ones. Awesome waders

I agree...you get what you pay for. Personally over the last ten or fifteen years I have been a big fan of Simms. Both my neoprene and my breathables are Simms top of the line, and are well worth the money. I have had the neoprenes for over ten years and they are still the best for colder weather. My breathables are the best for the other three seasons of the year.

catchya later,

Default Waders.

Have a number of friends who are guides up here on
the Oregon Frontier. They all prefer the Simms G3 waders
and jackets. A bit on the expensive side but worth the
investment. These guys put their waders through some
tough work. The areas of the waders that receive the most
wear are reinforced and the seams are well taped and sealed.
There are so many good waders out there that it
would take to much time to discuss them. If price is no object
you might look at the G3. Cheers,

Snuffy

Yes... I would agree that none are better that Simms. The top-of-the-line Orvis, Hodgman and L.L. Bean waders are equal in value.

Chota makes a very good wader in the $150 price range.

Now... If price is an object. Then hands down, the very best value on the market today is the Stears Sealdri Breathable waders. You can get them for only $89.95. These are very good quality waders. At this price they come with a wading belt, gravel guards, repair kit and a mesh wader bag. Perhaps the best selling wader available today.

I love Cabelas waders, maybe because the warrantee but they have ALWAYS worked for me and my dad. We never had to send a pair back and they aren't to expensive. They are the only ones we have ever bought and we continue buying them.
