I used orvis Clearwaters and found them pretty much useless. I was going through 2+ pairs per season. All credit to Orvis, they'd replace them for free every time. They finally 'upgraded' me to the hopefully tougher 'Pro waders' We'll see how they hold up.
One way to get cheap good waders: get Orvis, rip them up and bring them back until they upgrade you to a better pair
