Default Re: Waders

Go with lightweight breathable. Still fine in winter if they are big enough to put some layers under. If you are still growing, don't spend a ton of $ on a pair without buying them big enough to "grow into". My first pair of breathables was a set of Orvis Clearwater, because the $ was affordable. I used them 2-3 times a week and they lasted for a little over a year. Really disappointing. I have put probably 5 tubes of aquaseal on them and they still leak like a sieve. I now have a pair of Patagonia's. Don't know the exact model, but they were considerably more than the Clearwaters. I'm glad I spent the extra $ but probably could have found a better value. Keep in mind that I fish hard and cover a lot of territory in a short amount of time because I'm in the park mostly. Tailwater fishing seems to be a little more user friendly on boots and waders. Chris or Daniel at LRO will have some good advice on which way to go depending on your budget.
May you fish more than you wish for.
