    Default Inexpensive Wader options..?

    I work two jobs and I don't have much time to fish anymore So I cant justify spending any more than $100 (tops) for a pair of waders. Has anyone had any experience with either of the following:

    White River Fly Shop (Bass Pro)
    Dogwood Canyon Breathable Stocking Foot Wader

    Field & Stream (Dicks Sporting Goods)
    Sportsman Breathable Stocking Foot Wader

    If anyone has had experience with other lesser expensive waders that would be helpful as well. Thanks.

    I've got some cabelas bootfoot waders, and have nothign to complain about. They aren't breathable or very warm, and look a bit on the goofy side but for $60 or so, they can't be beat. If I plan on wading a bunch here on out I might look at some better ones but for now they are perfect.

    I bought Cabela's Bluestream out of the bargain cave. Marked "soiled". Not a thing wrong with them. Got them for 50 or 60 bucks. Breathable's to boot!

    Another vote for Cabelas
    Over the years I've owned at least 6 different pairs from them

    I also have a pair of the LL Bean Emerger Stockingfoot waders and I love them. Lifetime guarantee. I've taken some nasty falls on rocks and they hold up very good. Wish I did after those falls! You won't be disappointed with these.

    I recently purchased a pair of these. Only used them once but they worked as designed.

    I love Sierra Trading Post. Great stuff at great prices. I keep saying it but I'm not sure how much it gets listened to.
