Roop, I want to concur with your comments on Redington products. I just received my fourth pair of waders, (three replacements). No questions asked and the response was immediate. The new generation wader appears to be a three-layer laminate that should increase longevity.
While on the subject of Redington products, I have also had excellent service on replacement parts for their reels. Replacement drag washers and updates to their AL series have been sent to me expeditiously by JB (John Brazelton).
Jim Murphy has built a winner on his product line(s), innovation and customer service. Wait til you see their 02 offerings.
