For the last couple of years I've been using Stearns Lightweight utility stocking foot hip waders on my hunts for quick over the boot stream crossings. They are light weight, compact, dry and have averaged two years before they get holes. I bought 5 pair 4 years ago for $6 each and since I gave 2 pair to my brother I'm down to my last pair. They don't seem to make them anymore so I've been searching for a replacement. I found these tonight. http://www.hodgman.com/Hodgman%C2%AE...waders&start=5 Will most likely order a pair and check them out.
