My last Hodgemans lasted about five years, heavy and made for a fat dude though. Bought my son some Mack's and they leaked after two day's. I've thought about the custom waders Andy and Tealer bought (is it USA or something?) but I need two pairs, one real heavily insulated for standing long time in waist deep water, and one real tough, but lighter pair. I froze my azz off last year body booting in my Simms fly fishing waders!!!!!!
Tough as in walking through brush or what?
Cabelas has armour flex on most. It seems pretty good to me, I went (still going) with a pair of the original cabelas super mags (they have a thick boot like the hodgmens had and they have been going for 10-12 season.
The new pairs have gone thinner and they are wearing and cracking in the thin spots. But they are warm and they back them.
My dad loves his dry plus waders by cabelas. They are breathable so they are super light. 600 gram boots. I bought the warrior 2 which are a hybrid. They have 1000 gram boot with neoprene up to the knee on the front and above you butt on the back side. I don't get nearly a chilled in those as the dry plus (I only use them for the first few weeks or if I walk in places my dad can't take the cold anymore so he hunts teal season and whenever it's warm). But they do have double duty for frog hunts.
