AWESOME find! I believe their warranty is 4 year prorated, if it applies. I'll go check out the site, but thanks Marvin - great deal.

Last winter, on a tip from Grego, I went to an Orvis blow out sale in an empty store building in Nashua, NH. They had a whole pallet of breathables for $49. They normally go for $120. When I got home I realized they were "Reconditioned". Which probably means, they leaked and someone sent them back. But I'm still happy. I got last season out of them and they're still ticking. I would guess the ones MArvin is telling us about are brandy new and still a great deal.

Our friend Mark F from DC has discovered there are only two sizes left; small and medium. Bummer.

I have found that these waders leak easily. (Perhaps that has to do with the number of hours I put on them.) They stand behind them though and will ship you a new pair. I couldn't stand to be without them after the second pair started leaking so I just patched them myself and was done with it. The patch held up for most of this season - longer than the waders pre patch held up. I'll just patch 'em again. The weak spot is at the join with the neoprene bootie.

One other flaw I found with these waders is that in current the knee guard "patch" fills up with water and does not drain easily. This makes it so it is like wading with a large water balloon attached to each knee - not so easy.
Tight Lines,
