Simms Micro Fiber Chest High Guides
The dense polyester-and-nylon fabric is light, supple, and comfortable but-and this is my only complaint-prone to puncture. A double layer of fabric on the lower legs helps, but you still have to be extra careful going over fences or through streamside brambles. (A patch kit is included.)
Consider the Guides an investment-at $350, they're about twice the price of good neoprene waders-but a worthy one: They're versatile enough to replace both summer and winter waders.
