I bought USIA waders. Just got them in a little over a week ago. Haven't had a chance to use them yet season opens here in the beginning of november. They are really quality waders and have a lifetime garauntee. A real one at that if you damage them you can send them back and they will fix or replace them free of charge. Thats the good thing about them they can actually replace the boots if they ever wear out, if they rip or tear they can stich in a patch and seal the seams just like their normal seams. All the seams are triple stitched and sealed. The fabric they are made of is a waterproof one similar to a really really tough cordura type material. The fronts of the legs have a overlayed second material similar the what the rest of the waders are made from. There is also a double layered cuff that goes over the tops of the boots down to the ankle area to help protect them and the seam where they are attached to the waders. They are very well made and the boots they use are very flexible and very comfortable at least walking around the yard strutting the new waders they were. I'm sure the neighbors thought I was retarded. For the bad they aren't the cheapest the insulated boot upgrade was another 75 and the stainless steel d rings I had added where the straps clip were another 25. The base price is 200 so mine were 300 plus 12 for shipping. Not cheap but I was tired of wearing out waders every two years. The other thing that kind of sucks is the boots are insulated but that was extra, but the material is not near as thick or insulating like neoprene but seems much more durable. I figure its nothing that layering can't solve. The other kind of sucky part is that if I ever do rip them or need something done I have to ship them there $10-15. The plus side they are American made the only waders that I know of that are. They can add any custom features you want when you order or down the road if you send them back like inside pockets leg pockets or whatever you can think of. Custom stuff does add more to the cost though. They don't have the traditional camos like max4 and duckblind. They do have a ton of different colors and tons of different military camo patterns. I opted for a coyote brown with desert bdu camo overlay I think they look pretty good like that, but you can have whatever combo you think of they make them for you. Sorry I don't have any pictures I will take some and post them. I will also let you know how they do once I have had them out a few times. To each his own I thought about the macks, rogers, or cabelas waders to try this time. But they are all foreign made, I try to buy American if I can. Neoprene seams are just prone to leaking after stretching and contracting a bunch and they were all not much less than the USIA's for the better ones. I figured if I was gonna spend 200-300 for good waders I was going to give that money towards American jobs. If anyone knows of any other waders made here let me know I'd like to hear about them. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and what they like so take my review USIA waders however you like, if they sound good to you great if not I don't care. If you have questions about them I will try and answer as best I can. I will get pics up tomorrow night hopefully.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.
If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.
