Default Wader Jacket Help

I need help deciding between 2 different wader jackets. I'm relying on all of you to help me with my decision.

Jacket 1 - Emerger II Wading Jacket: Fishing Jackets at L.L.Bean

Jacket 2 -Cabela's Dry-Plus® Ultra Wading Jacket

Thank you,

Ken Devorak

Speaking as someone with a belly, wading length jackets are stupid
They ride up and are uncomfortable
Wear a standard length jacket and if the bottom gets wet, so be it.

Tough call...they really look alike. Like the same company making them for two different companies.
I say it is sixes....flip a coin.

I have cheaper Cabela's Backcountry jacket, and I really like it. It's surprisingly warm.
