I'm in the market for some lightweight breathable stockingfoots. There sure are lots of manufacturers out there, hodgman, cabelas, simms, orvis, etc. etc. etc.
Any recommendations for waders $200 or less.
How about wading boots?

Thanks for any info,

I've got Cabela's breathable stockingfoots, the tan-colored pair. I've fished them extensively for three years and so far, so good.

I've been using Hodgman waders for years and have never had probelms with them. Yes, they are going to be close to the $200.00 you want to limit yourself too; but they are well-made and hold up well. I also like the Hodgman lightweight wading shoes for their lightness and decent ankle support.

Dan Bailey waders are also a very good value for the price.

Another nod to the Cabela's....2 plus years and going strong. And I kayak in them, wade in them, boat in them, etc, so they get a fair bit of wear.
