I have the Cabelas Ultimate and have enjoyed them, my feet get cold now and again due to poor circulation but it's nothing a good set of toe warmers won't correct. I have the 1000 gram boot. The 5mm neo can be somewhat warm on some days.
They were a good buy though, I found it tough to beat thier price. Cabelas seems to have quality products, so far I have nto been dissapointed.
On a final note, Columbia has always stood in my mind as quality gear. While I have no experience with thier waders, I certainly would not discount them on my next wader purchase.

my hunting partner has the cabelas 1600's and loves them, the only complaint is same thing Trois_beaux_canards said, a little warm on warmer days. but nothing you cant stand. besides im having to much fun to care really. i bought a pair of columbia waders (click on the link) and love them. as long as they keep you dry and warm on the colder days its all up to your personal opion, just like with your other gear.

I have not had any of the cabelas waders so I wont comment on them. The ducks unlimited waders are stearns and I didnt like them. I have had several pairs of waders and have been very tough on them cause they get used year round. Most pairs tend to last about a year or year and a half. The best pair I have had a currently still have are ROCKY flooded timberstalker. They are by far the toughest pair I have had. Mine are going on their third year and my partner will be on his fifth year. I would not rule out the columbias though. I have not had a pair but own lots of other columbia gear and they make stuff to last and be comfortable.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Cabelas Ultimate Waders. This will be my third season. By far the best waders that I have worn, plus they have the cabelas TOP NOTCH customer service.

I have the Cabelas 1600 with armor flex. I have also owned a pair of the DU ones and I did not like them at all. I really hated the straps on them. I have no complaints with the Cabelas. Warm and comfortable, and they have got caught on stuff before and did not rip. Very durable as far as I am concered. Just my opinion.

Cabelas Ultimates are pretty good. I would want to try Lacrose Brush Tuffs those things are supposed to be top of da line.

Good choice! I ended up buying a pair of hip waders half way through this season. Because of this "tropical depression" or whatever it is they call it were in, it's been so warm, and those 1000's would get swamped with sweat so I just bought some 200 gram hip waders, I think I wore those more than anything. You will have a good pair of waders for up in that ID cold water.
