I am on my first season of Dry Plus waist highs but it has been a hard season fishing several times a week. No problems at all so far.
The waist high design works for everything but float tubing and would probably work for that too if I had one of the newer designs that keep you a little higher above the water. The waders are so comfortable that they are more like a pair of slacks than waders and I usually suit up at home and make the drive to the local lakes rather than put on my waders once I get there. I have 3mm and 5mm neoprene chest waders but they are really a pain when you want to take off or put on a shirt, go pee or try to get something out of your pants pocket. Cabelas waders, like most of their flyfishing gear, are made by a reputable big name outfit, will perform well and can be exchanged if you are unhappy with them. And at a fair price also. Ive
