Patagonia's or Hodgman Guidelite's

My mind is stuck on the patagonias, Im 98% im gonna buy em or the hodgmans. Im gettin the pata's for $190 and I can get guidelites for $170. Just asking what you guys think...But I dont know if anyone can change my mind....Just looking for comments on either. I used to use cabelas but Since I fish 2 times a week at least and when the steel are in full force maybe more. I have had to return them 5 times. I will admit they have one of the best customer services but their products suck!! Not a bash to people who have them!!

Catch me where the fish's up!

I would probably go with the Pataguccis at that price. What kind of warranty do they offer? It would seem that most non-GoreTex waders are made of the same stuff, and probably in the same factory. They WILL leak (they all do. Sims the least). If you are looking for a bargain, look for the best warranty. If you are looking to stay dry, save up for the Sims Guide or G3.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.

Or buy two pairs of reasonably priced waders and hold onto one for backup while the first is being processed through warranty.
