At first I accidentally transposed that as "a lot of farts in the ol' waders"... maybe it's because such muffled reports don't let you forget them and if you do forget they remind you at the end of the day or when you make a sudden deep wade
BARE was a huge brand when I lived in Seattle, and sworn by from many hardcore anglers I knew particularly their neoprene waders. OS Systems is another wetsuit maker with a BTW wader, tough as nails but not breathable. You can expect to get 10 years solid from an OS systems wader if you are a cold water wader (steelhead rivers etc).
I agree with Jim SIMMS.
