Mine are holding up great. I did notice that the waders will develop mildew if not allowed to dry out before your pack them away but I think all waders do this. A quick wash in cold water seemed to clear this up for me and now I make sure to let them dry completely before packing them in my wader bag.
Sean is correct. The mildew gets in the seams and forces them open. I had a friend that never let his waders dry out and this happened to him. It takes weeks to happen, however. So if you make it a habit of letting them dry out as much as you can you should have no problem.
