I tested many neoprene and breathable waders...I've got a Simms g3 it's the best I've ever had ,I fish in all seasons but I must admit here in the south of France it's not very cold in winter so with fleece pants it's ok.

For backpacking and knee deep wading, you should try Neos River Trekkers. If you're not familiar with them New England Overshoes are a rubber cleated sole sealed to a heavy 160 Denier nylon pack cloth hip. The neat thing is that you leave on your hiking boots and then strap securely and dry inside the overshoe. They were invented for hunting bogs and such, but they make a sturdy and dry hip boot. I can and have hiked all day in them. I use them for adequate protection as rain pants too. It's nice not to have to change out of your hiking boots and then have to do something with the boots or carry them all day. No drying out in camp. No wet wading boots to deal with. They have a shock cord top to kind of make them a little less baggy, but the extra space allows some air to circulate and the leg is a handy place to store a rain jacket. They are the bomb for hiking through thick scrub in Alaska, but I think they make great hippers in the lower 48 too.

Breathables..no doubt.

I threw all of my Neo's away once I found the greatness of the breathable wader...

Recently gave up on my old Cabelas Dry Plus wader pants. Purchased a pair of Orvis Silver Label waist highs. Only fished them a couple of times so far but I'm really liking them. I only use waders in the spring and fall the rest of the season I wet wade.

Breathables for me most of the time, Smallie fishing in the summer is wet wading time. For the cold winter steelhead fishing I use fleece in varying weights depending on the temperature; I also wear a boot one size larger then normal, helps the circulation.
