    How about the waterfowl wading systems ones?? Made by Caddis I believe. I'm sick of neoprene in the early season mud too don't know what to get.

    It seems people are really liking the Banded breathables; I think that's what I'm gonna go with.

    I just made the decision to go with the Banded waders also. I had to order them to get my size because they didn't have them in stock. I have always worn a size 12 boot in Cabelas supermags, but had to go up to a 13 in the Banded. Hope I like them this year.

    Hate to admit it but the banded waders a buddy of mine has are very nice. I like Frogg Toggs a little better. They also have or soon will have the zip out insulation version available. Cabelas would be 3rd

    Banded has a unique boot covering that no other companies have - almost like a loose gaiter. Anyone know the purpose function ?

    Cabelas Dri-plus. Hate the straps/harness thing but the waders are top notch.

    Protect the upper boot from getting cut? At least that's my thoughts on mine.

    I always assumed that was the dunk and dip assist? I figured sticks would catch under it and trip you? Also collect extra mud?

    As I understand it, the gaiter is to protect the boot from punctures.
