Cabelas makes a set called the Ultimate hunting wader with armorflex that i have had for a few years. They changed the material the year after i bought mine which my uncle got, and i like them a little better. They are very warm(1000 grams insulation), neaprene, and velcro straps. They run for about $170.

I'm a loyal Cabelas customer but the last 2 sets of Cabelas waders I bought leaked in the crotch area at the seams[:@]. Thats not a good place to have a leak.Gander Mountain has the Ducks Unlimited Mad Dogwaders on sale for around $150.00. Just bought a pair and going to try them out tomorrow. Good luck

I have been buying my waders about the lastyears now from Cabelas for one reason. They have excellent customer service.

The last four waders I bought were LaCrosse brush busters that would start leaking in the crotch(seam) after a season.Cabelas replaced them even without the receipts. Now I bought a pair of Cabelas brand this year.

So to me I want a good product, but where I buy them is probably more important...

I've been using hip waders for the last 5 years but just got some hodgman chest waders. The hip waders have been getting the job done but there are a lot of down sides to them so I don't recommend them but I see you were wanting chest waders anyway so I guess just completely ignore this reply

the cabelas ultimate hunting wader are the most comfortable things ive ever tried on. the neoprene velcro straps seem like they arent even there. and you dont have to worry bout the adjuster hitting you shooting shoulder cuz there isnt one. they are reasonably priced as well.
