I figure If I can stretch the use of $75 waders to almost 3 years, should be able to stretch $200 to 6, right?

LOL!  In that case I better figure out the ROI ratio. :(

I think I may have been taken in by the 'oooo, those 'look' cool' Factor.

I really hate spending my cash in big lumps like that. :(  course I also ordered electric brakes for the Camper...hydraulic brakes are a pain.  All it takes is ONE itty bitty thing and it burns up a bearing. :(

WOW that was some FASTA$$ shipping!

1st impressions.  HOLY CRAP dees things are comfortable to wear!  I can't wait to get em wet on Sunday.  if the rivers down a bit...Look out bass...I say that cause I'm delusional, not cause I'm a threat. LOL!

most of the time, the booties on large are a smidge tight...my toes come just to the end, zero stretch.

I found that waders with articulated feet are the most comfortable.  Gave up on the Cabelas $100 waders.

Purchased these brand new on ebay over the winter for $113

And was lucky and won these at the TU banquet this spring...

The only thing that bugs me about booties, is the inability to get anything in less width than a D.  For the same reason  I wear a size 12 shoe doesn't mean I weight 300# is the same reason I don't have snow-shoe width feet like the rest of the population.  don't get me started on Hunting/hiking boots.  :-19 :-19

These waders are definitely on the slim side.  no bulk anywhere.  I'll have to buy some water-proofing wash and soak the others and give em to the eldest for him to start getting out on the water.....If I can drag him away from the XBOX that is.  :-19

Them some nice pants there Joe.
