Default Chest Waders

1st let me start of by saying sorry if this thread already exists somewhere..

I bought my fly rod and reel in late June early July and have yet to purchase chest waders... If at all possible I would like to spend less than $300 I have looked all around even for some good used ones , but all I seem to find are neoprene in my area as used chest waders go..

I have been keeping my eye on the Redington cpx stockingfoot chest waders for $199.99 has anyone worn these and or heard any news about them good or bad ... Also for basically $80 more they have the cpx in a zipper front , is the front zipper that nice of an option to spend the extra money.. Or if any of you out there have any ideas of some other chest waders I could look into...

I think I liked the Redington , they looked very similar to the Simms at a much discounted price....

Thank You everyone I look forward to hearing your reviews and advice
Jer

If you're not in a huge hurry I'd keep searching for a new pair of gortex on closeout. This is the right time of year for the deals on last years models. That way you get high end for well under budget.

The best advice I can give you is Do Not buy mail order...Go to a shop where you can try on the models that interest you, and wear the type clothing you will wear when using them.

Most of the waders I've purchased in the last 25 years came from Cabelas...mail order.
Right now, I have 3 pairs from them. A pair of 15 year old neoprenes, a pair of 12 year old featherweights, and the newest are 3 year old DryPlus bootfoots that went for around $130.
Except for one pair of their cheap PVC waders, I've never had an issue.

Don't expect to find any Simms or Patagonia high end waders on closeout. They decided not to discontinue any.

I bought a pair of the cabelas premium dry plus chest waders and they are great. This year I am planning on getting a pair of the waist highs since I fish mostly spring creeks.

Wilky,
The 5 mil neoprenes are for cold weather hunting and fishing... really cold
The boot foot style goes well with these because there's more wiggle room around the toes that traps heat.
The majority of neoprene waders for fishing are 3 millimeters and most people consider them too warm for an average day on the water, preferring modern breathables.
One good thing about the 5 mil waders however is that they'll last for years without leaking..... that is until you do something to put a hole in them.

Wilky: Rip Tide is exactly right, when I lived in Alaska I owned a pair of 5 mm neopreme waders and loved them in the cold wx. Now that I live in WY the only time I can use those neopremes are in the winter or very eary spring. Last year I bought a pair of Orvis waders on sale and love them. They are offering the Pro Guide 3 model for $249, normally they go for $349.
