Default Waders recommendations needed

Hey Gang,

another set of waders just sprung a leak so I was wondering what all of you river fishing guys use and could recommended. Never owned a stocking foot type, been a boot fit guy but I don't fish that much and these things never seem to last more than a season. LMK, Thanks!

Can't beat the Cabela's breathable stocking foot waders matched with a nice pair of Simms boots. Cabela's have a lifetime guarantee and the price is right.

I own a pair of Orvis Encounter Waders. These are boot foot waders. They will definitely last you more than a year. Little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
Check them out.

Try going in a closet or a real dark room with your waders and strong flashlight. Put the light in the leg that leaks and look for light coming trough. Oh yeah bring some chalk or a marking device.
If you see light through the waders 'well that's a leak. Mark it and look for other leaks.
Apply aqua seal to that area.

Thanks but that sounds like a PITA, I can get LL beans with 25% off tonight so I think I'm gonna spend a bit more this time and hope for the best

This technique works great. Pay attention to the stitching/seams
