Default Best fishing waders on a budget?

Hey im looking for some new waders for fishing, tiered of sliping all over the place with my rubber soles on my hunting waders, any way im thinking I want to spend around 100-150$ but I do want a nice pair that will last so if I have to spend a few more $ to get a more quality pair then I will. I just wanted to see what you guys have used and liked

I bought a set of Frog Toggs from Fishermens on sale two years ago on sale for $49.99. Probably used them 50 times before I finally developed a very small leak in ofcourse the crotch. I am sure I can fix it but it's so small that I thought to wait and see if it gets worse first.

I bougt some Dan Bailey waders a few years ago in that price range and have been very happy with them. I actually went into the store with the intent of buying Simms but i didn't like the way they fit me so I went with DB's and saved some money in the process.

Numerous internet forum discussions and reviews suggest that the Dan Baileys for about $200 are the benchmark for price and performance. These are stocking foot breathable waders, and you will also need wading boots with them.

You might look at waders from Cabelas line of waders- good price point and they stand behind their products.

Another vote for Frogg Toggs !
I like the fact that their gear is budget minded, performs well, and is comfortable & tough enough for daily professional use.
Frogg Toggs waders; wading pants; and wading jackets are superb for the money.
Try the Hellbender series matched with Cascade boots; make sure you get the gaiters that are used for gravel guards if you fish alot of sand bars.
I haven't had a leak in my wading pants in three seasons with over 545 days of fishing in them. Can't say that about the Simms I used to wear (and I'd cry everytime I had to purchase a new pair).

The Frog Tog Hellbenders are a great pair for about $120. They have a double knee and great pockets.

have both frogg toggs and cabelas, they are both great for their money. heck sometimes when im in a hurry i get my cabelas in my frogg toggs-- waders/boots that is, and the other way around. i know every person is shaped and sized differently but i wear my cabelas more because i think they conform to me better. the legs on my frogg toggs seam to be a little short in a certain area if you know what i mean

I have a leak in both pairs of my new or near new Frog Togg's. (the $50-60 versions)

Both leaks are in the feet, and should be easy to throw some Aquaseal on...just haven't done it yet.

Expect to get what you pay for...to an extent any way.

Hodgman Neoprene chest waders. Cost about $40. Sure you could find a deal somewhere.

Aqua z, a new company is rediculous for the price, hit up Jim teeny, I think he's the only one that can get them right now. But seriously check them out!

Good company, stand behind their product.

I went through a few pairs of cheap ones until I spend the money on some good ones.

Well worth the cost.

I really like mine.............

I'd say the same for Dan Baileys but I guess beauty in the eye of the beholder.
