Since we're praising quality retailers, I wanted to give kudos to Macks' Praire Wings. I called to get some information about a pair of waders I was thinking about buying. I was transferred to a "product specialist" who was extermely knowledgeable about most of the brands of waders offered. After speakign with her at length about several products, I opted for a different pair (which I am thrilled with). Howver, I ordered a different size than I had expected, based upon her suggestion. It turned out that my original thought on size was correct - I found the pair I ordred too small when they arrived within a week of ordering. So, I called MPW and they mailed me the correct size that day (also arriving within a week), along with a prepaid label to return the wrong sized pair. Try getting Cabelas to do that? Based upon this experience, I will always seek to purcahse gear from MPW, if the product I'm seeking is availabe there.
