Thanks for the detailed response. It looks like you saved me about $100 as well. After reading your email I called LL Bean and explained your experience and told them I ordered my waders (Emerger II) yesterday on-line because my Emerger (old model) is leaking. Naturally, I paid the full amount which was about $100 more than the original.
The person said he could not give me an even exchange except possibly if I canceled the on-line order and returned the old waders and request a replacement then if could be an even exchange. I guess the reasoning is that the old model was discontinued and they need to make an even exchange.
I asked for the supervisor who said that since my on-line order was on the way, she will look for the return and credit me so that I would not be billed the extra $100.
So again, thanks Marty K.

I also had a similar situation where I could only get a season out of them before a leak appeared.
I went with the LLBean rapid river boot foot (they credited the cost of the emerger) and have used that the last few seasons. I love them. They are a little more rugged and the material is thicker. The boot is a wading shoe which is encorporated into the wader and is VERY comfortable!
This is my 3rd year with same pair.So far so good.I really like em.
