Bob Triggs· Stop Killing Wild Steelhead!
I have been fishing about forty five years, and fly fishing about 22 years in fresh and salt water. I have guided sa few years as well. I think that it cost me allot of money to work my way up to fibnally buying the best waders available- Simms Guideweight Waders. I can abuse them for ten or more hours a day for six months at a time, and then fish in them on my time off. The way i use them they last a year or two.The way it sounds like you'll use them they should last for years. With good care and little abuse they should be serviceable for a very long time.Even when I was just fishing occasionally for fun the cheaper waders were trouble.You live and learn.
