That is good advice! Altho, I can rip my neos off in a hurry if I have to. And a free tip....if you do a lot of tubing on a high country lake, don't drink a lot of coffee on the way up.
Hmmmm., wonder if I could invent something that attached to your,.. um, well, you know, so that I wouldn't have to go to shore every 20 minutes, when the bite is on? Could become a rich fisherman!

Except in the winter when you got all those extra layers on.

I fished in neoprene waders my first year flyfishing. I got a pair of Orvis Pro Guuide 2 breathable waders after that and what a difference. In the summer I am much cooler and in the winter if you layer right you will be just fine. Much better mobility as well.

I did neoprenes for years and bought breathables 2 years ago. Shoulda done it 10 years ago. I got hodgmans from sportsmans wearhouse for 89 bucks and I love them. You'll never go back to neo's.

I have light wieght breathables for the summer and 5ml neoprenes for the winter. I had the neoprenes to start with so I never experimented with the layering. You started out like me with the neoprenes first and that can really suck in the summer! Get the breathables and enjoy the warm weather.

Go with breathables, after having neoprenes, you will not be disappointed!

Re: waders-neoprene vs. breathables

I generally lean towards breathable waders....they can be a bit more pricey, but are more comfortable in the long run and you will find you will stay a lot drier due to the fact that you will sweat less in breathable waders than you will in neoprenes. i will say though that if it is the dead of winter and you dont plan on walking too much neoprenes work well....i still wear them when i fish the north platte in the winter and its 20 degrees or colder...its easier to just put them on instead of trying to bulk up with multiple layers of fleece or long underwear when wearing breathables. both have thier place i suppose....it just depends on the type of fishing you do and the conditions you do it in.

If i had to pick one pair to buy though...breathables would be my choice. I like Simms, but the ones Cabela's offers can be a lot more affordable and are still a good product.

Re: waders-neoprene vs. breathables

If you can afford the breathable nice lightweight epic wants waders BUY THEM! You wont be disappointed. If the budget is tight the big clunky neoprene waders work just fine I use mine all winter and all summer. I do recommend the thick socks with either one you go with.
Some of those hike in lakes will get to ya after a while with those neoprene waders and float tube. Blah.
