My waders
Posted by B_M on Apr 11 2006
Jake -  I switched from neoprenes to breathables three years ago and have never regretted the decision.  The only time I really liked having my neoprenes was when I was deer hunting on Kodiak/Afognak many years ago and found myself still hunting through woods with lots of little streams to cross.  For fishing only, I love my Simms breathables (they carry them at McCaffey's Fly Shop (not sure on the spelling there).

Water temp does vary a bit from stream to stream, but during the summer I've never gotten too cold in my breathables.  Now, if you're going to be chasing steelhead/trout in the cold months (oct-march), you may want to get warmer waders.  I think you'd do fine just wearing heavy clothing underneath breathables, though.  On the opposite end, on one of those 80 degree July days you'll be really thankful to have something lightweight, especially if you're hiking a few miles to your fishing hole.  Nothing worth than hiking on a hot day wearing neoprenes.

Just my preference, though.

-Brian
