Every manufacturer has issues but given the hard hard hard core use I put my waders through with excellent success...maybe it was just a couple bad crops.

Were they their higher line waders?

I do not know about their neoprene, I haven't bought neoprene in ages. I know they have some great canvas style boot foots that look awesome, maybe they can get you into those?

I wear a pair of their waders and they have been working out perfect for me. I have wore them for about a year with no issues.

My inexpensive Cabela's boot-foot waders have worked out for about 2 full years now and have spent lots of hours in rivers in several states for long days and withstood my best efforts to demolish them. I'm not the most graceful gazelle in the herd. Can't complain. I'll be looking at some nicer ones next year but these will be good back-ups/loaners. I love them, not like I love steak or fresh halibut but I do love them.

I actually have 6 different pairs of Cabelas waders.
That is if you count the fly-weight stocking foot hippers that I haven't seen in a few years
They get rotated using the most appropriate.
I have no intention of ever buying anything else at this point

I opened up the "other gear" section of the forum looking to get some advice on a nice replacement for my nine year old Cabela's dryplus waders that just started leaking this year. I contemplated calling Cabela's but I believe I've definitely gotten fair use out of a pair of $230.00 waders. Now I'm wondering if maybe I should send them in.

I was thinking about splurging on a pair of Simms, but even though they are made in my home State, they are awful expensive. Can someone recommend a mid priced Simms wader? I saw Simms from around $400 - $800.00, yikes! Also how good is their warranty?

Thanks,

John

I have three pairs of Cabelas waders and for the price they take a beating! The only leaks I ever get are always in the seam of the boot foot which is easily fixed. When my high end waders leak and I send them back I always have the Cabelas backup! Personally I wish I could wear shorts all year long!

They are expensive, but you get what you pay for. I considered my Simms G3s a splurge, but after getting them, I realized they were a worthy investment in my enjoyment of trout hunting. Simms has a top notch warranty, USA made product and a fit like no other. Can't really go wrong and they should last for years.

My G3s fit like a tailored suit compared to my Cabela's Dry-Plus that fit like a potato sack with glued on clown shoes.
