Hey, I'm looking at a pair of hip waders ("Frogg Toggs - Rana") for backpacking use in the smokies. I'd like a lighter and less bulky pair for backpacking, and am thinking hip waders might be a good match. Does anyone use hip waders, and can anyone give a review of those (the Rana ones). They're pretty cheap, which might be a negative.
Also some lightweight wading boots/shoes suggestions would be nice.
