    SO just curious what waders did you end up going with? I need a new pair myself.

    I haven't actually bought a replacement pair, but I am leaning towards the breathable over the neoprene from everyone's input.

    Something I learned about the breathable waders from talking to SIMMS warranty; Breathable waders are not designed to be worn with jeans, the rough fabric will cause premature wear on the inside of the breathable fabric causing premature failure. SIMMS suggest a wading pant made from polartec material but any soft fabric will be better that the coarse fabric like blue jeans.

    When it's hot enough to wear breathable, I wouldn't think of wearing jeans...that'd be a furnace. I typically wear shorts with breathables in summer, roll down the chest area of the wader and clasp the suspenders at my waist.
