Need New Waders

Found out on Saturday my breathable waders leak. After multiple patches, it is time for a new pair. They were Cabela's premium and lasted >7 years. Anyone have experience with the new stich free models? I have gift cards to Cabela's and Bass Pro to use. Any suggestions?
Thank you

The welded seams model from Cabelas get good reviews. Best bang for the buck may be the Dan Bailey lightweightw.

Simms G3. Not welded seams, but bullet proof. I've had mine for 4 years. I fish 100+ days a year. No seam has ever leaked.

Looks like the Orvis models finished pretty high and were much less expensive than some of the others.

I've also got a pair of G3's. I've had them for several years and yes, they are quite good....a little pricey but good. If you are looking at boots, the guide boot is more comfy than the G4. I've got one of each and seldomly wear the G4.

Backcountry has the Patagonia Guidewater waders (originally 399.) on sale for 240. I absolutely love mine. Worth every penny.

I would read the wader shoot out....it will give you a summary of high and low points on all the waders tested.

I have a pair of Redington Sonics that I got on clearance from Backcountry.com.....they are going into their 3rd year of use and have no leaks so far. I have probably 60-70 days in them and I usually beat the crap out of them.

It seams like most everything else you get what you pay for, but I would pay close attention to the number of layers on the leg/seat, zip functions, and extras like hand warmers, pockets, etc. It is all dependent on what you want or think you will use. I wouldn't pay $400 for 3 layers of Gore-Tex when you can find 5 layers of other waterproof material with extras for the same or less.

I am on my fifth year with my Simms waders. No leaks. IMO they make the best waders on the market.

I have the Orvis Sonic Seam convertibles and love them. I also have a pair of Cabelas Dry-Plus waist highs and never had a problem with them. I got them 2 years ago on special for $99 and they're still going strong.

Anyone check out LLBean's new waders? I like their lifetime warranty on waders because eventually all waders leak. I have a pair of the emergers and they're ok, but if and when they leak I'll take them back and get a new pair within reason.

+1 on Patagonia's. I know they're expensive, but they've lasted me through pretty rough conditions (hiking, kneeling in water and on the banks, etc) and Patagonia has the Iron Clad guarantee just in case something does happen.

Check ebay or like Tyeager said, look for closeouts.
