    You could give it a shot with these. Just cross your fingers and hope you don't get a defective one.

    I bought these once according to dimensions and they turned out to run about 4 sizes small is the only problem. But then some say they run a little large. Don't know which. If you are on a tight budget, give these a chance but otherwise definitely stick with "you get what you pay for."

    I have these and love them. Not bad for right around $100. @Nute told me about these a couple years back and I've never had an issue with them leaking at all. I also use thin wader boots to protect the sock part. I've had them for 2.5 years without a single issue.

    Keeps my legs warm in winter and I don't get all sweaty when the temp is high.

    These waders are awesome, hold up well, and cheap. No problems, make sure to read the reviews. I'm 5-11 I got medium tall and they fit perfectly, easy to put on and take off, I bought a pair of aqua socks to wear on the outside of the waders to walk around and to fit my fins.

    The caddis waders above me, i've gotten before and they leaked within one day. Had high hopes for them because they were nice, but no dice.

    They are made from the skin of babies.

    I second the Frogg Toggs recommendations. Better than the best Cabelas at less money. Froggs uses a membrane like Goretex (but cheaper) instead of DWR so it does not rub off. Nothing lasts forever though. I get leaks in the neoprene feet with all waders but repair that with Plasti-Dip. Suggest you 1st fill the waders up with water and see where the leak is and patch before buying a new pair.
