Just a couple of weeks ago, I purchased my first pair of g3's from mountain view. The fit is excellent and they felt really solid. After just a few trips out though, I noticed I already had some pin holes in them, and one more obvious hole around the crotch. Now, I have not hiked very much with them. I walked maybe 1 mile total with them since I have only fished the Kenai at Centennial, and in Hope for some pinks.
I emailed them and they told me I could just return them to Mountain view and exchange them since it had only been a couple of weeks.
Tonight I took out the new pair and walked about .25 to .5 miles along Campbell creek. I got into a bit of bush but nothing that my old $100 waders could not handle. And now, Ive already got 3-4 pin holes in them?
Does this sound normal to you guys? Ive used a lot cheaper waders in the past that have never had pin holes from walking along weeds or tall grass or a few dead branches. (Campbell Creek).
For the g3 or even g4 owners, would you just live it with and fix it? Or exchange them again. I would actually feel embarrassed to return them even though Ive done nothing wrong. But how can I mess up 2 really good pair of waders?
Any comments or advice appreciated.
