Hodgman Stretchlite

New for 2001 is the Hodgman Stretchlite breathable, reported to have 4-way stretch capabilities. Sure sounds good, I plan to hunt them out at the next fly show in my area.

Affordable breathables overall have been a disappointment to me, although the high-end (high-priced) Simms have served me well for a couple of seasons now. I suspect I will get at least another season out of them, maybe two. If I get four years I will consider them a heck of an investment. I also await the day that high-end wader competition drives costs down from $375 (stocking foot).

Curious if anyone's made the commitment to the new Hodgman stretch waders yet?
