You get what you pay for. I had hodgman for awhile, got tired of repairing them. I now have dan Baileys and they are great, They were around $200.00.Does anyone have any experience with Caddis waders? Saw some yesterday at Outdoor Emporium and they looked pretty good.
These past couple years, they don't seem to be holding up as well. I'm done with Simms personally. Had great luck with them before, but things seem to be going down hill with longevity of the waders.I'll 2nd the Simms Freestones. I have 6 years and well over 200 outings on mine without a problem. I never got 1/3 that much use out of my Orvis or Cabela's waders.
Not sure you always get what you pay for. I've read more than a few comments on this forum re: Simms and Orvis waders that suggest otherwise. Personally, I've had a pair of Hodgman's for more that 4 years and they've only started to leak the last month or so.You get what you pay for. I had hodgman for awhile, got tired of repairing them.
