    Simms are tops. Patagonia, Chota, and Dan Bailey would probably be next in line.

    If you can afford Simms. Buy them. (Waders are made in USA)

    Hi flyfisher45,

    You won't be disappointed with stocking foot chest waders from Simms. The company offers good support and their waders are made in the US. Cabela's has some cheaper overseas waders that will save you some money but they won't last like the Simms. In the long run I think the Simms are a great buy.

    A little off subject but I see that Simms has came back with the Guide Pants. They are calling these the Headwaters Pant.

    You have no option then. Simms are the only waders made in the USA.

    From what I've been reading they seem to be the best on the market.

    I purchased a pair of Cablea's waders 3 years ago b/c I didn't know what else to buy at that point. I fully expected to replace them after a year, but am still using them 3 years later. They have held up well through thorny foliage, etc..

    Re: boots - take a look at Korker's. You can change the soles for different types of water and terrain. I have the Guide boots and really like the stainless steel lacing system for my "hard to fit" feet. Also, I have not needed studs for the Aquastealth soles.

    Korkers - multi-tool shoes for outdoor, hiking, fishing, golf and work. Versatile OmniTrax Sole System for hiking shoes, hiking boots and trail sandals, fishing shoes, fishing waders, industrial and roofing shoes, golf shoes.
