A quick google search and you can get 25% off any of these prices. I have the Pattys... Rio Gallegos I think... great waders, great price

Well, I did... but only because they didn't have the same waders without the front zip. I was sad initially, but after having them for a full year, I must say, I love em. The main reason is because I can get in and out of them so well and they fit PERFECT. My simms were juuuust a tad small in the chest.

Anyways, I got the damn zipper and wanted to hate on it, but I don't lol...

NICE!!

I have been hesitant on getting zipper waders. Great Idea, just can't wrap my brain around them not leaking.

Thanks for the review

One other feature I love about the Pattys is they have a fold down system in their shoulder straps so you can roll down the top part and wear them as a pant. Again, when I bought these, I heard about this feature, but didn't put much thought into it.. now, I use it constantly and love the feel of pants/suspenders when I don't need warmth or depth.

you guys rock. great info!

so the cheapie herter's have a lug sole boot which i actually kind of like. nothing else to buy or lose. one piece one price. looks like most "good" waders are stocking foot. pros/cons? is there a simple easy boot to be looked at?

For years I have paired my stockingfoot waders with cheapass $10 sneakers like size 13 from Kmart.

I see that the frog togg boots aren't so many $. never even heard of that brand and suddenly it's everywhere.

It's funny... wading boots are such a weird thing. One day I was at a fly shop and I know the owner loosely and I asked... "Why don't they make a cheaper set of wading boots that are nice and light and easy to walk in?"

He had no answer other than they wouldn't last. I guess if I paid $40 for a pair of cheapo wading boots, I wouldn't care if I only got 2-3 seasons out of them. My wading boots are about $120.. they are tough as nails, but they are rather heavy, rather stiff and nothing I would choose to wear for a nice long hike.

I have been seen many times in my waders and my Crocks (liners removed). When I do that, i LOVE the fact that my feet feel light under me... they also stick to rocks pretty well. not sure why I'm rambling about this, but it's an interesting thing to me. I want some light crock style boots or high top tennis shoes with felt soles so bad (with arch support).

they're not so versitile and wouldn't seem so comfy but the cheapo lug soles in the herter's were surprisingly good. I walked a mile, fished 4 hours and walked another mile in em with no complaints. I will say that standing on rocks gets painful, but my back doesn't like me standing on rocks even in good padded running shoes.
most of my summer was spent in teva sandals and/or barefoot. just gotta remember not to have the iphone in my pocket. I already waste enough money on lures, I don't need a new phone too.
