Has anyone used the dryfts for a while and how are they standing up. Best wader,s I have had yet were allen gold streams,fit like a bag, but didn,t leak for long time, next best were a set of Hodmans but they were tight on legs to get off, next were simms g 3 which were a disappointing as weeped right from new and soaked one leg after likely 3 weeks or less of use. Now using a set of vision zips and thinking need some new back-ups for spring trip and honestly don,t see spending a lot on what seems to be a short lived item anymore. Need some thing more tough than fashionable,something I can walk in or even shoeshoe in a bit and last for a month of fishing on foot,not riding in a boat. The visions have stood up pretty good,bottom of zipper leaks bit but hardly ever that deep ,just sometimes on a wade that is deeper than planned and pants sound good but sometimes got to get to other side and thats where they are lacking. I want a pair of waders to wear, not to ship back and forth over warranty issues and shipping from Canada to States is now expensive and slow.Any word on Drifts lasting or not. Thanks Daryl
Forgot a set of Redingtons that lasted pretty good to but once they started to leak there wasn,t enough shoe goo to fix them. Shoe goo is your friend when your getting cold spring water coming in and only half way through your trip.
