Default Cheap waders?

Does anyone know where I can get a pair of cheap waders? I am new to this and being a young guy I don't have much money.

Thanks!

Check LL Bean's Emerger II breathable chest waders. Very reasonable price, excellent warranty.

Peace.

I know you said cheap, so, here goes, hodgemans, cabelas, dicks sporting goods, you can get into a set of waders for under or at $100. I have used hodgemans, my buddy has a $99 pair of cabelas breathables. They will work, and will last you probably a couple seasons if you are not bushwhacking and you take care of them (don't throw them in the back seat in a wad, hang them to dry, etc).

That said, one of the most expensive individual pieces of fly fishing gear I own is my waders. I understand the need to sometimes get in cheap, see if you like it, etc. This is the path I took originally, and I don't regret it cuz that is what I needed to do then.

You will eventually want a really good set of waders (a few hundred bucks) if you stick to it. If you are sure, and you have the money, buy a good set up front instead of buying twice.

I think that I might have a wader problem
I've never owned stockingfoot breathables before and I thought they may important for an up coming trip so the other day I bought a pair of Cabela's "Premium Dry-Plus' stocking foots ($150)
Afterwards, I realized that this was my 6th pair of (just) Cabela's waders that I currently own
I have a pair of the Dry-Plus bootfoots (5 years old) for the surf. A pair of 15 year old featherlight stockingfoots, a pair of featherlight stocking foot hippers, a pair of 5 mil neoprenes (older than 15 years) and an old pair of 3 Forks stocking foots (hot, never wear 'em)... and they're all Cabela's
Plus I have some traditional type Hodgeman canvas hippers that I wear regularly
I like to think that as I rotate through all these, wearing the most appropriate that they last longer
Now I'm thinking that maybe i just have a wader problem

Congratulations...... You've taken the first step toward the cure by admitting you have a problem.
My wife says that I have a similar problem with rods but I won't admit it.........

You can get a pair of Cabelas breathables (stocking foot) and a pair of boots as a "combo" for around 150 or so.... Decent waders and boots too!
