Wading Boots

Seems to be a good number of new wading boots appearing for 2016 ....... but will they last any better than last year's 'super duper improved models'?

Some of these look more like trainers,  but cost more than a couple of decent car tyres :z4

Wading boots are something I need this year...... Oh and new waders, I spent a fortune on top end Simms last year which gave in after 3 months use but thats another story!!  :z4

I like the look of a few pairs of waders, most of which have the welded seams instead of the stitched. Wading boots, I like the look and price of the visions and Patagonia's (sale on them atm). I agree with Mike in that a lot are going down the looking 'street cool' theme.  We shall see what I can afford closer to the new season.  :X2

I'm pretty hard on my wading boots and running repairs required on my current ones to get me through even the start of this season.  :cry
Aquasure to the rescue-again  :z4 :z4

For repairing waders aquasureis best? Is it worthwhile re-treating them with revive or similar?

don't forget about Diver Dave for your waders can save you a small fortune that can be spent on better products down the line.

I've heard lots of mixed reviews on Diver Dave. Some excellent some terrible, its kind of put me off tbh. I'll try and undertake the repair myself.  :z16
