Default Durable breathable waders

Warning, this is the same post as in the surfcasting section, but I'm getting a bit lonely hoping for a response there. I'm looking for some durable breathable chest waders for the surf. Just wondering whether any of you have had good experience with the field and stream breathable waders, the hodgeman wadelite breathables, Dan Bailey BareBones Breathable Chest wader or any other resonably priced brands? I just found out that Simms has some pretty good looking waders (4 layers) that I found for a reasonable price, The freestone, http://www.simmsfishing.com/za/SIM?P...&PROD.ID=14442 140 bucks. Downside is no attached gravel guards. I'm leaning more towards them b/c of Simms warranty. Also, i heard that the hodgemans wadelites suk. I was going to opt for some cheap hip boots, but I figure i might as well buy something that I'll get more use out of (August and september kings!) and I saw that on e-bay you can get these brands for a reasonable price. I am going with the stocking foot so that I can pack them easily. I have neoprenes, but they're boot foot and impossible to travel with and I want something for when it's warmer.

Wow, you use waders? LOL. Nah, if I'm in the surf and the water and weather is cold enough for waders I am in my Hodgman 3.5mm Neoprene waders (sock foot not boot) as long as its nice out I usually just wade right on in wearing a pair of shorts

yup ordered em last night, after using all my Bean bucks ($90 worth) only ended up costing me $69.99. See I gut the LL Bean Visa, get free shipping and get Bean bucks to spend. Also if I drive up there I gotta pay Maine sales tax, NH doesn't have any sales tax

well the "boys" are still a little tender from surgery last week so I didn't put them on and tighten them up yet. I already know they're a little long in the legs. I got a short inseam 29" and a size 12 foot but yet I'm 5'11" 260 lbs. So yeah Briggs and I will probably look like twins
