I will wet wade with wading boots most of the time, but in the Spring and Fall my Simms(8yrs old) are usually on me, they are always in the gear bag just in case.

The coldest temp i went fishing this winter was 7 degrees, and i was comfortable in my breathables. Although proper layering is needed.

Also since everyone is naming brands i got the orvis proguides brand new off ebay for just under 200, and love them, getting close to 60 days on them, no leaks. I even took a hook in the leg hard. But it hit the double layered area, and no leak!

The Pro Guide II (the tan colored ones) have a problem as I have said before.
They don't leak at the seam but the edge of the weld (about 1/4" from seam)
I guide and wear mine a lot, two years ago this started to happen so I sent them back. They sent me a new pair and the minute I got them I turned them wrong side out and brushed a thin layer of Aqua Seal down the leg seams and welds. They are showing no signs of wear yet.
About the warranty, If you want to send yours back, you might not want to mention you got them from e-bay. I am not saying to lie, but don't offer any additional info. as far as what I did, they prefer you try to fix them first so I don't think I voided any thing.

Terry, I prefer my LL Bean waist high Gore Tex waders for the same reason as A.K. Best. They keep me from wading into deep water. At my age that's good. In slippery conditions like the LMFR, the deeper you go the less stable you are.

Guess I was trying to figure out how 'cold' was coldwater. When I'm fishing with the snow flying as in December in Erie or February here in PA, I like the neoprene boot foot chest waders. They seem to provide the best warmth without needing too many cumbersome layers; but, when the air temp hits the 50's and the water temp stays in the upper 40's I'll usually switch to breathable stockingfoot chest waders. I fished a few times this January with the water temp in the mid to upper 30's (Yeah, the fish were darn sluggish). I stayed pretty comfortable in neoprenes whereas my brother was freezing in his breathable chest waders. Then again, maybe I'm just a hot-blooded Hungarian!
