Look at the Cabelas waders
A number of them are on sale right now.
I've owned 5-6 different pairs over the years and was never sorry

Rips rigtht, for the money its hard to beat Cabelas, I bought my wife and son and I all a pair of them to get started three years ago, to get the wife and son started that is, I just got a pair cuss I'm a gear junkie lol, but they are still holding up great.
If you want to go top of the line though, look at Simms or Orvis

The LL Bean guarantee is impossible to beat. I've seen Bean waders, but never used them. A guarantee is nice if you're not mailing leaky waders back
every other month, but Bean products seem fine to me.

LL Bean Warranty is Hard to Beat

A couple of guys I fish with have had their leaky waders replaced by Bean after wearing them a couple of years.

It sounds like a no brainer!

I have seven or eight years in the Cabela's G-II's I'm wearing and I duck hunt in them, too. Some wear in the inseams where they rub against each other I've patched with Aqua Seal, otherwise no probs. Good product especially at the price.

I picked up the Cabela Seamless guide waders (Cabela's Guidewear® Pro® Welded Waders) and they are nice, but a word of caution, buy a size too big especially if you have longer legs. I have a 30 inch inseam and they still on occasion let me know I could use a little more room when I am in winter layers. These are on sale right now for like $250.

I got some for Christmas, and they are borderline tight on the crotch. I'm 6' 1" and if I have bulky pants the waders are uncomfortable. Since I always wear Simms under-wader pants it's not a problem. I researched waders for 6 months, and concluded that Cabela's is the best for the money. Simms are the best overall, but were out of my budget.
