I avoid sticker shock and buyer's remorse buy purchasing the better Hodgman stocking foot waders and a repair kit. Haven't used the repair kit,.....yet!
I'm thinking that the way that Murphy's Law kicks my butt sometimes, the expensive waders would be the first pair I ever ripped.

I still have a pair of the Hodgman boot foot canvas hippers. I haven't worn them in about 15yrs. They are hard to walk in cause the boots are so stiff and because they are, they rub the hide off my ankles. Maybe if I wore a neoprene sock?.......
I hate it when you don't have enough wader to get in position to cast to a rising fish!!

Ard's foundational requirements for a wader sounds really good!.......Maybe some day.

One of our nice rim creeks was smack in the middle of a huge forest fire. During the process of trying to rehab it they wanted to keep the cattle, elk, deer, etc away from the banks. In order to do that the creek is protected by miles of elk fencing and barbed wire fencing.

When I went fishing there this passed spring I had to climb over a barbed wire fence 3 times before the day was over. This was unnerving in my $150 bargain waders, I can just imagine the stress of doing it in a set of $400+ waders.
