It appears that after three seasons my Columbia breathable waders have given up the ghost. Iíve unsuccessfully tried three times to repair the leak in my right boot foot (the last repair attempt using the Loomis UV repair kit).
I realize I will probably get a hundred different answers but I pose this question to the forum. What waders do you suggest in the $150-$175 range. I would love to buy a pair of Simms but I just canít justify the cost. Right now Iím leaning towards the Orvis Endura that retail for $159. (In April Orvis will send a $25 off coupon making them $134).
I would love to get input on the waders you use or if anyone has any other ideas for repairing the leak in my current waders. Iíve turned them inside out and filled them with water to find the leaking area but my patch jobs doesnítí seem to work
