I don't know about you but leaky waders suck. Nothing is worse than wet pants. For the most part the new breathable waders are a godsend allowing you to be more comfortable in even the hottest weather. I wear mine all season to keep out of poison ivy, deer ticks and neetles. Trouble is many waders have membrane issues, the seams leak the feet are badly done. I have also heard dealer stories of 50% return rates on certain brands.I have been searching for a company which offers a great product at a great price and stands behind them. I bought a pair and field tested these and I was very impressed. These are boots I use and recommend.
Dan Bailey's offers one of the best waders on the market. Bailey's is one of the oldest names in fly fishing and they stand behind all the waders with this warranty. YOU will get at least 180 trips out these boots and they offer a 100% satisfaction gurantee*.
This is it: " We are so confident that our products will meet your high standards we guarantee all Dan Bailey products to meet your satisfaction 100%. If at any time you are not satisfied with the performance during the normal life of the product, please return it to the place of purchase or to Dan Bailey's for prompt service." * Nobody, I repeat nobody offers that kind of warranty! Say goodbye to leaky waders, crappy seams, feet that leak. Say goodbye to feeling hot, sticky and sweaty.
