    I have some old Orvis bootfoot waders which have been excellent.

    If you need to keep really warm neoprene is great, but these days I have switched over entirely to Gore-Tex waders.

    I have 4mm Snowbee waders. They're great in cold weather, or when deep wading, but my god you don't half sweat in them on a warm day
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    I have some Orvis and Simms waders. Orvis are a more generous fit but I am slim so don't need the extra space. Have always used stocking feet type.

    the best 2 at the moment are the vision sub zero and the snowbee sft neoprene. Neither are cheap but both will last well

    I strongly suggest you listen to Diver Dave's advice - nobody repairs more waders than he does, so he's seen them all and knows what's good and what's not.

    Cheers

    Any particular reason you don't want the stocking foot type? I've found them more comfortable and more versatile than bootfoot.

    +1 on listening to Diver Dave - he's the recognised authority on waders and has repaired several of my sets that would otherwise have been trashed!

    The only reasons I have is that I would need to buy a pair of boots to wear with them, and it will be standing in pure mud so the boots would be caked in all sorts and more difficult to clean

    I have a pair of Pro Logic ones - about 85 if I remember. My budget was limited but for fly fishing and wildfowling they have been excellent, my Dad has the same too. Sure, there is better - but at a much higher price.
