Only problem with LLbean is they don't like us fat guys . Never seen any 3x in that store. But all my kids jackets and book bags are from there cause you can't beat the warranty.RhinoScores said:IMHO - Stay away from Orvis. I have a pair and they have leaked everywhere. Worse yet, Orvis no longer stands behind their product like Simms or LLBean. My next pair will be LLBean breathable stocking foot (I like the added support of a nice pair of boots laced up tight). Why LL Bean? Because, I'll never have to buy waders again with their guarantee; which simply states that if for any reason you’re not happy with the product they will replace it. Last time I was in the store, returning a 3 year old coat that had a faulty zipper, I asked the sales person if the guarantee covers the waders and I was told it covers everything in the store, including the cheap Hodgeman waders they carry.
Snowbees next for me. Gonna pick them up in a few weeks at TackleDirect.Beach Pounder said:Snowbee Breathable waders great so far for me. I have the XS model which comes with a lumbar support belt and some pockets for storage. Tackle Direct in OC steered me in the right direction .
I think the only two are rubber lugged sole or felt. The felt is for slippery rocks, but DON'T think you can walk on a jetty with them.madmax said:I have never surf fished but I am thinking about giving it a shot this year.
The waders have different soles. What type are for surf fishing?
